A classic fighting game designed by Jordan Mechner who is best known for Prince of Persia. This is probably the first fighting game that allows you to run. It has realistic art and animations for that time. This side scrolling beat 'em up platform game has 1-on-1 elements in it. There are no jump kicks or special moves here. All you have is basic punches and kicks, walk, and run and that's it.
The object of the game is to rescue the princess Mariko kidnapped from evill villian name Akuma who destroyed your homeland. You the warrior trained in Karate, known as karateka must fight your way to rescue her and fight each opponents who get in your way. You only have one life. There are health recovery points by relaxing and not letting your opponent attacking you. Once all health points are gone, you or the opponent are defeated. Can be played with a PC joystick or on keyboards. You must fight the trained eagle or falcon by evil akuma before facing him in battle. Once you defeat Akuma, you must run to the princess to attribute to your sucess or walk in a stance where she will kick you in one blow and the game is over.
This game is originally designed for Apple II before being ported to other systems such as the NES and Atari ST. Atari ST is graphically the best version since it's the only 16-bit port of the game.
