Ninja Commando (ニンジャコマンドー) is a top down, vertically scrolling shoot 'em up by Alpha Denshi for SNK's Neo Geo system. Released in May 1992 in cartridge format, and 1994 on the Neo Geo CD format, Ninja Commando is famed for its unintentionally funny English translation.
"Spider", the game's main antagonist, schemes to get his hands on a time machine. With it, he intends to re-shape the past and create an apocalyptic future. Three ninja from around the world,with the help from Doctor Brown join forces to stop him.
In the game, you can choose to play as one of three Ninja characters, Joe, Ryu and Rayar (the female Ninja of the group), all with differing abilities. Each character also has fighting game style input commands that unleash special moves, for instance performing down, down forward, forward and the A button makes Joe perform his "Tornado Attack".
This game has also been re-released on the Wii's Virtual Console in North America on July 14, 2008 and is included in the compilation ADK Soul.
