I first saw this on TigSource Pixeltao and I swore to give this a play sometime, I have and all I can say is, fantastic work! I love the NES feel and look, I have yet to finish the game but it is indeed great! GameMaker needs more titles of this caliber! This needs more exposure!
What if I may ask, were some of your influences for this game?
Thanks Knuked! I really had a lot of fun making this game, so I'm glad that people are enjoying it.
I'm a hardcore Mega Man fan, so it was definitely an inspiration in term of gameplay and level design. For the visuals I wanted to do something closer to early NES era games like Ninja Jajamaru-Kun. I also played Game Center CX (Retro Game Challenge) a lot when it came out, so Haguru Man was an influence as well. And I was playing Muramasa: The Demon Blade on Wii during the development of Ninja Senki, so some ideas for the enemies come from there.
