|Known as "SpinMaster" in North America, this Neo*Geo game features two all-American yo-yo masters twirling and dog-walking their way through hordes of comical evil ninjas. Actually, other than a charge attack and a bomb, which varies depending on your "yo-yo" type, you can't really do any tricks with your yo-yo. But you can clock a lot of ninjas with it, and even turn it into things like fireballs and bombs and shuriken, and blow stuff up.|
You can't help but like the big, bright Data East sprites, and everything moves along nicely without any signs of slowdown, even in the racing minecart level. There's really nothing not to like here, unless maybe it's those pesky grape-jelly-shooting scorpions in stage 2.
