    Yeah, I don't want to live in a world where Revenge of Shinobi doesn't exist, not to mention the effect that could've had on a potential Shinobi 3. Plus, this port is probably going to be far closer to the arcade original when it's finished versus one done by Sega in '89 with limited development time and ROM capacity. Sounds like a win-win to me.

    And without his experience doing the MS port of the original, in which he implemented mechanics like the life bar, we never would have gotten ROS.

    I think thats everybody loves ROS, it has amazing moments, AMAZING soundtrack, cool bosses, excelent level design...
    but is entire different thing, plays much different than the original.

    We can live in the world with both titles, Shinobi arcade as launch title is much better than SH2 for example,
    and since SEGA did amazing job on Altered Beast that is more hardware demanding than the Original Shinobi
    i think thats in the right hands we can get a very special version of the shinobi in 1989
    And in another year they can deliver the ROS and everybody gets happy.

    Nowadays we have Tryphon (thanks god) to make our dream comes true,
    because until now we didn`t have any good port of shinobi thats show how good the original really is..
    fast, precise, full of action and very fun..

    SMS version is very good for the system, but is far to represent what the arcade is..
    PCE version cuted most of the content, no bonus stages, remove levels and the crucial
    they removed melee attacks thats destroy the gameplay and shinobi experience.

    Others versions different of these 2 on old systems its a complety garbage.. sadly..

    Very impressive! Aside from the awesome Super Shinobi, MD also got Shadow Dancer, which plays closer to the arcade games.

    as a kid, i would have loved to see the shinobi, RoS and Shadow dancer boxes lined up, such a great series. I hope one day the arcade shadow dancer is ported too, it isn't great, but it is a good entry in the series and paved the way for the much better genesis version.

    Regarding the music:
    -In the middle of the lvl 1-1 track, the guitar plays the wrong notes after the first loop of this song (higher pitched and off key)
    -The crash when the lvl 2-1 track loops sounds wrong and seems to cut out the kick drum. You could use a light PSG crash here or tweak the FM kick maybe
    -Sometimes when you die in Genesis Plus GX (retroarch), the PSG notes are sustained until revival
    -There are some other minor flaws in other songs but it's more subjective and you know my thoughts since I sent you my covers and remakes.

    Tested in Fusion, Regen and Genesis Plus GX.

    Everything gameplay-wise seems accurate to me (without comparing directly to the arcade ver.), so nice work on that.

    Watched this yesterday then forgot to comment lol.

    My main complaint would be about the cave stage in mission 3 Dunno, the contrast is too strong, I'd try to play with the palette some more to make it easier to see. Not sure how badly that may affect the sprites though.

    Everything else looks fine however.
