Gameplay

Ninja Assault was developed by Namco, who also created the Time Crisis series; however, this game has more in common with Lethal Enforcers, Virtua Cop, and The House of the Dead series, whereby the movement is completely "on-rails" (i.e., with no hiding pedal), and the player must shoot away from the screen to reload.

Both versions of this game support up to two players in cooperative gameplay.
