Red face Jumping around in Dragon Ninja

Stupid question: How do I let my character jump to the left or to the right in Ocean's Dragon Ninja? I have tried some joystick/ firebutton combinations but with no luck.

I think your press the fire button and push the joystick upwards then you release the fire button and you jump high... as long as you are mid-air you can move either to the left or either to the right. You have to practice to get good in doing this if you don't like losing lives in stupid locations.

Smile Merci

Thanks for the solution, Enigma. I will try it out tonight.
In level 2 of Dragon Ninja where the hero must fight his way on a truck it is necessary to jump over gaps – maybe I will get to the next level this time.

I *so wish* more Amiga games and joysticks used 2 buttons. Dragon Ninja jump over the gaps on the truck is a piece of piss on the arcade version - just one button press. This was tested by me on my original pcb btw

And you think it's "fun" trying to do the moves on the 'miggy version of Dragon Ninja? Try the C64 version-even cracked & trained it's still a pain to play!

I remember having lots of trouble when I 1st got Dragon Ninja for Amiga, because of this jumping problem. After sometime, I got the hang of it. If I remember correctly, you push UP, then you push LEFT or RIGHT right after. I think there's no need for the "Big Jump", as if I remember correctly, he will not do it if there's no other platform above.

It's no stupid question, by the way

Yep, tap up on the joystick, then immediately hold forward, this being the direction you're facing (left or right).

The big jump is also possible if there's no platform above you. I think in the truck level it's impossible to jump over the gaps without the big jump and your sprite even needs to be placed more than half over the truck.

Be a rabbit

I remember very well this game on Atari ST, as often Ocean coin-up conversion provide good gfx but code was not as good as gfx. The game was so slow that it was easier to jump. When i saw the Amiga version i was simply amazed by his speed. Level 2 with the truck took ages on ST to end (think you only have few "wagons") whereas on Amiga it look likes a pure travel quickly turn into knightmare due to those jump.

Truck level is level 2, right?

I never had trouble with level 2, but I remember having problem with level 3 because of the jump problem...

Oh, I remembem being able to big jump in the truck level, when you fall from the truck, you can use big jump to get back to truck before your energy goes completely away...

Or am I confusing this with the MSX version? Can't remember now..

Ocean has updated Dragon Ninja due to the faulty jump on the original version.

The "Les justiciers" compilation is the only version with the jump enable.
