The title did catch my attention and it was hardly what I expected. There's little dancing involved in the whole game. At least the title didn't give away the game's premise. It is a game developed and edited by Sega released in 1989 for arcade and two years later for the Sega Genesis with slight differences from its previous arcade port. The game is part of the Shinobi series and is also a side scrolling action game featuring a ninja warrior in the company of an attack dog who follows the main character around. Its bark is the cue that the player can sic his canine companion on the enemy by pressing the attack button while crouching, leaving the opposition vulnerable to be freely attacked by the player. If the player either takes too long or launches the canine onrush on an enemy with too strong a defence, the dog will be harmed and become small in size for a set period of time. The character attacks with shurikens and a sword slash when close to enemies. IN addition to regular attacks, the player can also make use of "ninja spells" to clear the entire screen of enemies.
Between each mission, there is a bonus stage minigame seen from the character's perspective as he tosses shuriken at enemy ninjas dropping down from a building. The player is awarded extra lives after successfully completing the bonus stage.

Eclipse is an open-source integrated development environment (IDE) for developing applications in Java with a highly customisable plug-in system environment. It's about the most basic environments to program in java, but at times you might come across some issues. The most common is when you try to import javax.swing.JFrame. It foten results in an error that reads "access to C:\Program Files\Java\jre8\lib\rt.jar is restricted". IN order to solve this problem you will need to delete and implement the JRE. Right click the project file, then go to Build Path> Configure Build Path. Next, click on the JRE file, remove on the rightr, click Add Library, then JRE System Library, Next and then click finish. You should now be able to use all of the resources from the javax.swing library which allow for the development of graphical user interface applications.
