Shadow Dancer, dancer for SEGA
I'm admittedly taking it a little easy after the seasonal change. But I can't relax when there's ninja business to be doing. Shadow Dancer is one of the more popular Shinobi games, and for good reason. Most Shinobi games are pretty dang good as is, but adding that pet dog to the mix made for a great game. SEGA games have a loose enough continuity as is and Shadow Dancer adds to it. Arcade wise, it's the second Shinobi game. Home console wise, the third. Look, confusing the enemy is part of ninja business.
