CCG writes - "Anyone who grew up playing games on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) likely remembers a particularly challenging series of games called Ninja Gaiden. These were crazy hard – even the most dedicated players struggled to make it to the end. Certain games required more than just persistence to beat – you either had the skills, or you didn’t. For the record, I got extremely far on Ninja Gaiden, but I never was able to see those ending credits. Cyber Shadow is in many ways styled after that classic, combined with a few other inspirations – brutal difficulty included."
