Description of Ninja Gaiden for NES

The player controls Ryu Hayabusa through six platforming levels, known as "Acts." The player has a life meter which denotes the player's "physical strength." The player's life meter drops every time the player gets hit by an enemy or a projectile. The player loses a life when the player's life meter runs out, when the player falls off the screen, or when the timer runs out; the game ends when the player has lost all lives. However, players can continue the game and restart the level in which the player has lost all their lives. At the end of every act, the player fights a boss. Unlike the regular enemies, bosses have a life meter; they can endure greater damage than their underlings before being defeated.

Players mainly attack by thrusting with Ryu's Dragon Sword �¢?? a katana�¢??like sword that has been passed down the Hayabusa clan for generations. They can also use other �¢??secondary�¢?? weapons that rely on Ryu's �¢??spiritual strength�¢?? as ammunition. These secondary weapons include shurikens, fire wheels, and "jump and slash" techniques. Every time the player uses a secondary weapon, the player's spiritual strength decreases; when the spiritual strength meter becomes too low, the player cannot use that particular subweapon. However, players can replenish spiritual strength by collecting various items.
