The year is 2048. The Striders, ninja-like agents and the last defenders
of justice on Earth, are the only hope to stop Grandmaster Meio from
ruling the world. Hiryu, the youngest Strider to achieve Class A
ranking, embarks on a mission to assassinate the evil Grandmaster with
his plasma sword, called a Cypher. Guide Hiryu as he jumps, slides and
hangs throughout the Eastern European nation of Kazafu in a battle to
find the evil dictator.
This hit action Mega Drive game will transport you back to 1990 with all the action you’ve come to expect:
• Power-ups increase Hiryu’s attack range and help him gain extra lives throughout each level by defeating enemies.
• Summon help from robotic allies to help you fight enemies.
• Explore five levels: The nation of Kazafu, the Siberian Wilderness, the Aerial Battleship Ballog, the Amazonian Jungle and the Third Moon (the Grandmaster’s Lair).
