Kung-Fu Master!


Help Thomas save his girlfriend, Sylvia, as he battles minions and dragons over five side-scrolling, action packed levels, Kung-Fu style. Based on the Jackie Chan movie Wheels on Meals, Kung-Fu Master (Spartan X in Japan) is often considered the first side-scrolling beat 'em up.

Ok time to jump back to the Commodore 64! When all my friends had Atari,  Coleco Vision, and that so cool Intellivision I had a C64! Man life was great so many games the ability to write your own games I was a wiz! I covered a few games last year and was kind of bummed that I could not fit in Kung-Fu as I spent hours playing this game. I think it was one of the first games we had to play at the time.

Who remembers playing video game's with friends and the goal was to have the high score? Nowadays you play a game for a few hours and you were done. Not as much replay value.

  1. I never a C-64, but I had a TI99/4A and an Apple IIe. Games on the TI99 were mostly text based with the exception of the cartridge games. I never played Kung Fu Master, but I played a lot of a similar game called Karateka on the Apple. I wrote my own games as well. It proved to be worthwhile since I ended becoming a computer programmer.

  2. We had a Commodore 128, and I played some games in C64 format: Ghostbusters, Hitchhiker's Guide, golf, and an interactive lifetime game who's name I've forgotten).

    This was very interesting, and I'm saving it to share with my gamer son, age 14.5.
