Yie ar kung fu was one of the games that helped to shape the arcades of today. By moving away from spaceships and racing cars it helped to create a whole new genre of games, namely that of the beat'em up. A superb piece of arcade history.


Tonfun - not to be confused with Tom Thumb ...

Charicatures which look real fighting over recognizable backdrops. this is one of the titles which took arcade games into the realms of realistic and attractive graphics. Wicked music, nice voice samples and functional sound effects. No complaints. Still playable today. Simple and intuitive yet somehow giving the impression that it retains enough depth of play to reward player skill. An all time classic that remains fun to this day.
