This is an arcade-style action game in which players assume the role of a ninja who fights his way through a 2D side-scrolling environment. Players punch, kick, and use swords to slash at street thugs carrying batons and blades. Occasional boss battles require players to attack stronger enemies in more protracted battle. When players lose all their "lives," a "Game Over" screen depicts a circular saw being lowered down on the central character as the screen fades to red. In one area of the game, a background mural shows a man in a tight-fitting leather outfit that exposes portions of his buttocks. Some billboards and signs display the word beer.
