The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Zen the Intergalactic Ninja Member Review for the GameBoy

Ted_Wolff By:

If there's one game you purchase for your Nintendo Gameboy (TM) then it's this game: Zen the Intergalactic Ninja.

The premise is simple. Your name is Zen, and some bad dudes are corrupting the universe with pollution, making harmony difficult and squashing the world's zen. But you're hear to save the day as Zen. It's clear by your namesake you're the only hope for planet Earth and all other planets.

The game gets you pumped up from the very beginning with a superb start screen and a ninja tune even the most hardcore ninjas would put on their boombox and style down the street. That's correct, there's no stealth in this game. While being a ninja, Zen really doesn't need stealth as part of his gameplay. He kicks ass in an overt manner and lets any baddies out there know he's not going to take anymore of their filth. Captain Planet wishes he could clean up pollution in such style.

Being a game for the Nintendo Gameboy (TM), everything's pretty straightforward and intuitive. You move forward and backward and can jump up. There are two buttons, which might seem like a lacking number to do kickass moves with, but Zen only needs two buttons to whip some serious crime-ridden junk. The A and B buttons are enough to completely flip out and smash heads with. If the enemy so much as flinches then Zen's ready to knock his head off with a roundhouse kick and replace with a trash bag, sending him to the dump.

The graphics are pretty snazzy for being a monochrome game. Really, they're reflective of the ninja style. A ninja doesn't peddle subjectively. A ninja only deals in absolutes: black & white. So it makes sense that the game is on a monochrome platform. The animation's not too shabby either. There are two basic sprites for Zen: flippin' out and total-attack mode. Every movement of his is in calculated stone-cold killing style.

Zen the Intergalactic Ninja is out of this world, as you can tell by the title. The game is harmonious, as you can also tell by the title. And it's a flipping good time to kill some baddies and save the universe from the nasty polluters, as, again, you can tell by the title. Do not miss this game or a ninja will probably slice you in six pieces before you can say sushi.
