Yie-Ar Kung Fu

Yie-Ar Kung Fu is an accurate conversion of the Konami arcade game. You may have come across it in your local arcade. You play the part of a tough little character called Oolong who has to take on some of the nastiest Ninjas seen this side of a Bruce Lee movie.

You start by battling a fat warrior called Buchu who leaps through the air in an attempt to squash you into submission. Buchu can be deceptively easy to beat - but beware, those who follow him are far nastier.

Yie-Ar Kung Fu features many interesting new moves - and you'll need at least half an hour's practice to master the controls. There are ten to learn.

New moves in this game include a neat jumping punch - which enables you to take any armed opponent by surprise.

Animation is superb - almost an accurate copy of the arcade original.

If you thought you'd already seen the ultimate karate game then think again.
