In the game you are a noble ninja, who has to prove the honour of shogun Yuichiro by recovering a stolen sword from the evil Toranaga. Walking from a village to a castle, you fight enemies and avoid traps using your skills in martial arts and Japanese weapons, collecting useful items and uncovering the twisty plot of the story.
Using a keyboard you can walk from screen to screen, jump, and pick up items. Using two mouse buttons you can kick or punch opponents as well as use, give or drop collected items.
This is a fun side-scrolling action game that did quite well on the Amiga but went unnoticed on the PC. Easy enemies and somewhat repetitive levels are made up for by excellent graphics and a lot of exotic ninja weapons to find and use-- easily the best part of the game. In a strange departure from most side-scrolling games, Sword of Honour also lets you control the action via a mouse-driven panel at the bottom, although it's by no means responsive.
