Become a master of this mysterious ancient art called Karate! Progress from Novice to Tenth Dan and test your strength and discipline. You can control your charavter with either joystick or keyboard – 18 different manoeuvres including blocks, flying kicks, leg sweeps, roundhouse and even somersaults!
Challenge the computer, facing opponentes of progressively greater skill, or compete with a friend. The Way of the Exploding Fist has it all – addictive competitive action, dazzling graphic animation and sound. The wait is over; you’re about to face the challenge of a lifetime!
You take part in a series of one-on-one karate matches under the watchful eye of The Master who appears in the beautifully hand-drawn backgrounds. Once each opponent is defeated you progress to a more difficult adversary.
Measure your progress during each match with Shobu Nihon Kumite, as found in many traditional styles of karate. A Half Yin-Yang represents a Waza-Ari (a committed but not decisive technique) and a Full Yin-Yang represents an Ippon score (full point, decisive finishing blow).
