This is a review of the game Karateka for the Atari XE Computer. The game was originally developed for the Apple II by Jordan Mechner in 1984. The game was quite groundbreaking at the time as it had a background story. The storytelling continued as you played the game. The game had very nice graphics compared to others. It was also the game which made Jordan Mechner sure he should make games for a living. Later successes like Prince of Persia proved that he did the right choice.

I hope you enjoy this first review on Ketils GEEK TV. Be sure to rate, comment and eventually sub if you are so inclined.

Apologies for the slight blur seen on some of the game sequences, and my n00b blue screen. :-) I am still learning!

Special thanks to lationreview here on youtube. He kindly borrowed me the Jordan Mechner interview.
