Welcome to YOLO, the video series where I play as much of a game in a single life. No continues or cheating; I only have one life to live. Join me as I tackle a different game every THURSDAY and SUNDAY. And don't forget to subscribe to the Defunct Games YouTube channel for more content!



My name is Cyril Lachel and you're watching YOLO, the only show that's guaranteed to end in heartbreak. I'm taking the challenge to play every game with a You Only Live Once attitude. In this case, literally. I'll play exactly one life of every game, seeing just how far I can make it in a single turn.

Today we're looking at Shadow of the Ninja, the game that would later because Ninja Gaiden Shadow on the Game Boy. It has a couple of big names behind it and scored well with critics back in the day. Let's see what happens when I push the start button!
