Maru's Mission

Maru's girlfriend Cori has been kidnapped and in order to get her back, he must fight through 6 different areas each with various mythological monsters. Fortunately, Maru is a skilled ninja with a few tricks of his own. Equipped with a default shuriken, you can find other items that will help you through an area or to beat a specific boss. You also have the ability to jump very high as long as you hold the jump button - even over the top of the screen! You can gain health by picking up the spirits of defeated enemies. There are 6 different areas each with its own mini-boss and boss. The variety is impressive; you will go from jumping on branches in a forest to diving with sharks to fighting through a spooky cave.
