I recently acquired a copy of the original Ninja Gaiden (I mostly bought it for the NES games inside actually…) and I wanted to know if there was a way to "jump out of water" and water run like in Sigma… not being able to do so makes chapter 11 a bit annoying, and I can't get to the surface to do the zombie challenge that I missed in the catacombs…

So is there a way?

The water run in the NG/B/2/S2 is different from NGS
It’s just like in NG2/S2 you have to reputedly press the A button while pushing in the direction you want to go

I know but I only manage to do it when I'm on ground and walk onto the water. If I'm swiming and press A, Ryu just dives… in Sigma and NG2/S2 he jumps out of water and starts to run on it…

I can’t remember properly, you have tried going back up to the top and pressing jump right?

In Ninja Gaiden Black, you can't run on water if you're already in it.

So that must be the case in the original too… too bad. Anyway, after actually playing the thing I understand why they made Black afterwards. Except a few passages (like the laser drones, even worse in water as I said, and of course these f*ing ghost fish) the original is really not that difficult.

In Black and NG1 you dont need the water run. Ok, for one LOTG at the beginning xD
It was pointless. Same with NG2s water combat because of the horrible controls and not being able to block.

Nah, the laser drones are really incredibly annoying when you can't water run. You can't do a thing.

While I'm at it, another question: is it normal that the game crashes when I try to play the NES Ninja Gaiden? It's funny cause it crashes exactly like a NES rather than a Xbox…

I used the bow with my awesome prediction shot skills xD


@Mohsin

Yes, you can only run if you "land" on the water via jumping. And running curves was hard as hell, too.
