on't get me wrong! The C64 version of Shinobi was really great, and the title picture captures the spirit of the
arcade original. But that fierce looking ninja has become such a classic in the arcades, and I thought
the C64 picture would deserve just that extra shine.
In my opinion, the weak part of the old picture is the dull pair of eyes. Eyes take a crucial
role in the face (especially here, as the rest of the head is hidden). Don't mine look
more... alive? At least I think so.
Finally, I felt the need to reproduce that oriental background. Not vital of course,
but it definitely takes part in the overall atmosphere of the game.
