Alex Kidd in Shinobi World is a video game developed by Sega.
The final title to be released in the Alex Kidd Series, Alex Kidd in Shinobi World is a parody of the Sega game Shinobi. It features Alex Kidd and was released in 1990 for the Sega Master System. As the title suggests, Alex Kidd is essentially thrust into the hero's role in a Shinobi game. Alex Kidd's abilities in this game are different from his other games, besides jumping.
In the game, Alex Kidd has to rescue his girlfriend, a native of Shinobi World, from an evil ninja named Hanzo. A good ninja fuses into him and gives him his powers.
Despite its Japanese look, feel and origin, Sega never released Alex Kidd in Shinobi World in Japan.
Alex Kidd in Shinobi World contains 4 rounds:
- Round 1: Kabuto
- Round 2: Raid of the Helicopters
- Round 3: The Jungle
- Round 4: The Battle with the Dark Ninja
Shinobi Kid (original / working title)Edit
In 2007, images and articles began to surface on the internet, that like Alex Kidd: High-Tech World, Alex Kidd was not originally intended to be the star of the game. Rather, the game was initially devised to be a cute parody of Shinobi, in a similar vein to Kid Dracula was to Castlevania, Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti was to Splatterhouse and Parodius was to Gradius.
