Cyber Shadow - CYBER ZEED IS BACK?

The first video game I ever bought with my own money was The Cyber Shinobi on the Master System, a turgid, arthritic sequel to (the excellent) Shinobi that completely failed to deliver on the promise of exciting Mushashi movement and occult spells in a soulless, post-apocalyptic future. It's taken 30 odd years but Aarne Hunziker is here to right that particular wrong with Cyber Shadow, an 8-bit throwback that looks exactly like the game I imagined staring down at the boxart image of a golden ninja surrounded by flames.
