Uchi Mata

As budget reissues go, this is quite a bargain I reckon. It's a pretty good simulation of judo and lets you chuck your opponents around in a very authentic manner.

The graphics are large and the animation works well. A weird technique to create the main sprites seems to involve making them look as though seen through slits. Odd lines run up and down their Kimonos.

Brian Jacks had a hand in the development of this one and it really does make for a slightly different challenge from the usual run-of-them combat things.

Overall Summary

Bargain reissue of old Martech combat game. Stands the best of time very well.
