So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Developer Message

To do:
Apparently the text "If you are reading this message on a pirated version of Shinobi, may all your days in prison be computerless!" is also present but not loaded into memory.

The disk has a message from Richard Aplin inside that is loaded at $1E6, $32E and $A36. This was removed from the US release.

Fuck me! I never thought you would do it!! Bet it took a long time though! 

By the way, the only way to crack this game is if you have at least 4mb of fast ram... There's a hint!  Are you enjoying this, by the way? Me (Richard Aplin) and Tim (the programmer) thought we might give you a little challange... I reckon I'll hold you off for about a week.  Oh, by the way Quartex, you told me at the SAE party this would be EASY.. Well is it?  I'm sure POPULOUS was easy too! (hehe)   

Well, obviously you weren't fooled earlier!! I'm impressed! Not a bad bit of hacking.. but the best is yet to come!!! Hehehehe... Just wait, cos now it gets REALLY good..
