Back in 1987, my cousin and I played this game to death, but it wasn’t until the 90s that I finally completed it and got to see the end. I’m also sure that there is a budget version out there somewhere that is incomplete and doesn’t allow you to get through the whole game! I think I played through a complete, cracked version – with a few cheats here and there 😉
Many thanks to C64ending Team Member, Matt Rogers, who kindly played through the game and sent in the ending for all to see.

Now you see him …

… now you don’! The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Matt confidently informs us that he completed this little gem without a cheat! GOOD MAN (“,).
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Once out hero reaches his final destination, he kneels down in front of what appears to be a wardrobe.  He then turns white – I can’t fathom this one out – and then stands up to be teleported out of the game. The final ending text reads, “THE QUEST CONTINUES …“.
COMMENTS:
Vinny: As hard as it is to work out what is going on, this ending does seem near on complete but could have done with a few more words to explain the final chapter. It’s well presented and has a nice final ending tune.
Matt: My favourite game; shame the ending’s not all that!
FINAL SAY: It’s cool but quick.

G.E. RATING: 6 / 10

One Response to The Last Ninja by System 3

  1. Much as I loathed isometric games in general (too fiddly, too counter-intuitive) one had to have affection for this one just because of the lovely graphics, atmosphere, and iconic soundtrack. Still not the most fun to play, though. I doubt I would ever have had the patience to reach this by fair means, and I’m quite glad I never bothered now, as that is pretty lame for such a tough challenge.
