Description of World Karate Championship

Well, three years after the original game they seemed to have brought out a PC conversion of the C64 all-time classic International Karate. But MyHeartBreaksAndBurstsIntoTears when seeing this, one wonders why they raped this classic into a **** machine. It's nowhere near the original game. Although, at least the graphics produce some sort of a déjà vu - if you add color in your imagination.

For those who've never played the superior Commodore 64 version, International Karate simulates a karate tournament for one or two players. During the game, you will fly around the world to various locations, and in two-player game there is a special bonus round. This is identical to Epyx' World Karate Championship, except it's missing two levels that were added to that US release.

Gameplay is probably as good as it gets in CGA (although why it can't be EGA is strange-- given that most games already were EGA even in 1988). Fluid controls and varied backdrops. As I said earlier, though, it really can't compare to the C64 version, so play this one for nostalgia's sake only.
