Kung Fu

Yet another NES game I love. First beatemup game ever. Story is much like other games, Thomas has to rescue Silvia from Mr. X in a 5 story building, with each floor holding another boss. It's replay value is awesome seeing after you clear it you can play again, and get a dragon for winning. Difficulty increases, making the enemies still attack while vs the boss.

Baseball Player - Just kneel kick him, he's easy.

Boomerang guy - Another easy one, just let him throw the boomerang and pummel.

Strong man - First of the hard ones. He's slow to attack but when he does, say bye to half of your life. use kicks.

Magician - He's really difficult with his magic powers, and being immune to everything but kneeling punches.

Mr. X - The final boss who captured Silvia. Has great defense that can block anything, but when you hit him, it's a huge chunk of life off him.

Graphics-wise really good for the NES 5/5

Sound, I love the sound effects, very memorable 5/5

Replay is awesome since it keeps on getting harder and harder! 5/5

Challenge, decent get's harder as you progress 4/5

Tilt I love it, one of my faves 5/5

Re: Kung Fu

Do you think you could expand a bit on why you like the game, graphics, sound, etc.? Half your review is just you describing the bosses. Hell, you don't even mention The Amazing Flying Little People. Also, I would have noted that you often have to fight off attacks from both sides. It's a good start, though.

Re: Kung Fu

I think Kung Fu is one of the all time greats. It's one of the first arcade games I ever played, and I never get tired of it. Good stuff. Yeah, those little jumping vertically challenged folks could be tough to beat especially on later levels. The knife throwers could be a pain too.

Re: Kung Fu

I like the nostalgia part of this game but I don't think I ever actually enjoyed playing it. It's pretty epic either way though.

Yeah, but, just like Donkey Kong, it gets tougher the more times it repeats.

This was my first review (just saw this btw O_o) as you know so I appreciate the feedback.

The Flying people are called TomTom's, and when I find more time, I will edit the first post.
