Here's a bit of an accommodating proposal to all you felon organizations out there: If you're going to think up a careful plot that involves snatching children, don't kidnap children who have ninjas for parents. That was the big error that a grouping known as Zeed made when it went after the offspring of the Oboro clan. Now Joe Musashi is on the hunt to deliver the immature hostages and take out Zeed's leaders, the Ring of Five. As you scrub each stage, leave no children behind - Joe can't continue to the next areas without freeing them all. With a limitless provision of shuriken, his pointed katana and his virulent clenched fists and feet, Joe will show Zeed why you don't mess with ninja family.
