Ninja Gaiden II: the Dark Sword of Chaos (from Tecmo)

[The Story]___________________________________________________________________

In order to avenge his father's death, Ryu had come to America, where he was
suddenly attacked by a mysterious army.  After escaping from a narrow brush
with death, Ryu came face to face with a mysterious woman.  Fire came shooting
out of the shining gun in her hand, and suddenly everything in front on Ryu
began to grow hazy.

Waking up in an underground dungeon, Ryu was handed a strange statue by the
same woman, who told him to take it and make his escape.  Without fully
understanding what was going on around him, Ryu took the statue and made his
way out of the enemy territory.

                                                                      [Page 3]

Ryu then went to see Dr. Smith, an archaeologist friend of his father, and
learned about the light and dark statues of an evil demon.  Just as they were
talking, the dark statue was snatched away by an enemy ninja.  "Ryu, go after

After retrieving the statue, he returned to Dr. Smith's cabin only to find the
doctor lying on the floor, mortally wounded.  Just before he died, the doctor
whispered, "Ryu, now the light statue has been taken..."  When Ryu looked up
from Dr. Smith's side he found that he was surrounded by a band of men dressed
in black from head to foot.  They were all pointing there guns at him.

                                                                      [Page 4]

These men took Ryu to a secret CIA base and to the office of Chief Foster,
Foster explained to Ryu that the mysterious woman, Irene, was really a spy for
the CIA, and told him about Jaquio's plans and about his Temple of Darkness.
Foster then forced Ryu to take on the perilous mission of recovering the
stolen light statue of the evil demon.

Ryu made his way toward the Temple of Darkness located deep in the Amazon
jungle.  But Jaquio, who was holding Irene hostage in the temple, blackmailed
Ryu into giving up the dark statue of the demon that he had been carrying and
dumped Ryu down into an underground cave.

                                                                      [Page 5]

Ryu was finally able to escape from the cave, but as he climbed over the last
cliff, he came face to face with the villain who had killer his father, Bloody
Malth.  Malth had been waiting for him.  Ryu and Malth duelled to the death.
With his last breath, Malth gave Ryu some unexpected news: "Your father is

A masked demon was waiting inside the shrine to fight off Ryu's attack.  Ryu
shouted, "Nobody can beat me!"  But the eerie voice of Jaquio thundered the
question, "Not even your own father?"  The masked demon was really Ryu's
father Ken who had been put under some kind of trance.

                                                                      [Page 6]

Finally freed from Jaquio's evil control, Ken came to his senses only to find
that Jaquio was about to kill Ryu.  Ken threw himself in front of Ryu, and
acted as a shield to protect his son from the balls of fire.  Realizing what
had happened, Ryu went mad with rage and charged at Jaquio.

After defeating Jaquio, Ryu rushed back to his father's side.  His father
instructed him to take the light and dark statues of the evil demon out of the
temple.  But just as Ken was gasping this message to his son, the moon began
to grow in the darkness.  The moon, blackened by the earth's shadow, was
beginning to bring the evil demon back to life.

                                                                      [Page 7]

But the evil demon was finally defeated, adn the temple crumbled upon itself
with a deafening roar.  Ryu and Irene looked out upon the ruins of the temple.
The morning sun shone down upon them and cleared up the deep sense of darkness
and evil that had once hovered in the air.

A year has passed, and still the activity down at the bottom of the realm of
darkness continues.  Ashtar, the evil lord who secretly controls Jaquio, is
now on the move.

                                                                      [Page 8]

You can jump up in the air to grab onto a wall or ladder.  Also, by moving the

[Techniques for a Sure Victory]_______________________________________________

Split your body for multiple attack
Ryu has the power to split his body into three.  The extra images that he
makes by splitting his body will stop right in mid-air after he jumps down
from any high place.  Use this special technique to attack enemies that fly
toward you.  This technique is especially effective when you are attacking the
boss of the third stage.  By causing Ryu's body to split, you can also use the
extra images to attack the enemies that come at Ryu from both sides at once.

Make effective use of the fire wheel
When you perform the invincible fire wheel, a wheel of fire will come flying
from the bottom of the screen toward Ryu.  You can injure your enemy when the
wheel of fire comes fluing at Ryu making sure that the enemy is caught between
Ryu and the fire wheel, as shown in the picture.

                                                                     [Page 12]

Use a swift kick-off jump from the wall to get out of tight pinches
When you can't jump all the way across a chasm, or if you have taken a wrong
step, you might wind up in a position like the one show in the picture.  It's
very difficult to escape once you have gotten into this position.  But you can
make use of this special technique.  Climb up to the top of the wall and make
a kick-off jump from the wall.  Move the Control Cross quickly in the opposite
direction, while holding down the A button, and you will be able to jump high
up into the air.  Keep practicing this technique until you are sure you have
mastered it.

Eliminate you enemies with the windmill throwing star
Throw the windmill throwing star, then jump up into the air so that the
throwing star win't come around and hit Ryu, and the windmill throwing star
will keep flying around the screen  continuously.  You can defeat many of your
enemies with only a little  reserve of Ninja power by using this technique.
Use this throwing star carefully, however, because if you throw it off the
screen it will disappear.

                                                                     [Page 13]
