Reviewed byndial
An excellent side scrolling beat em up released for the arcades on 1984 by Irem and ported to several 8bit platform (Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum , Commodore 64, Atari 2600/7800, Nintendo NES) in 1986.
Kung-Fu MasterYou control Keiji Thomas, a young Kung-Fu master whose mission is to rescue his kidnapped girlfriend Sylvia by the evil Mr. X! His girlfriend is taken into the last floor of a temple, and Thomas needs to fight his way to the top. You must fight through five side-scrolling floors full of enemies to rescue her using your punches and kicks. Enemies vary from young Kung-Fu students to masters, so you mission is not easy. Enemy projectiles such as knives can be kicked in the air to rebound them towards the enemy. Each floor features a few deadly spots too such as deadly exploding pots dropping as you walk each floor (not to mention dragons appearing breathing fire, and snakes roaming around!). At the end of each floor (just before you get into an elevator - for the CPC version, and stares for the C64!) you will face a level boss who's abilities are getting higher as you progress to the top. On the top floor resides Mr. X himself.
Kung-Fu Master is a great action fighting game, offering great fun but a lot of difficulty as you progress. Nasties can sometimes overcrowd the screen (coming continuously from left and right, along with dropping exploding pots which makes your lifespan rather short...

The game looks and plays pretty good on the CPC version, but is a bit slow compared to the C64 (and 8bit consoles) version. Colors are nice and bright whilst sprites move smooth.
I really liked the intro music too, although there are only a few sound effects during gameplay (whilst the C64 and ZX (128k) versions offer some nice tunes during gameplay).

Hardware information

Amstrad CPC 464/664/6128

Amstrad CPC 464/664/6128CPU: ZiLOG Z80 4MHZ
MEMORY: 64 KB or 128 KB of RAM depending on the model (capable of being expanded to 512k using memory extension boards)
GRAPHICS: Motorola 6845 address generator, Mode 0: 160x200 / 16 colors, Mode 1: 320x200 / 4 colors, Mode 2: 640x200 / 2 colors, A colour palette of 27 colors was supported
SOUND: The CPC used the General Instrument AY-3-8912 sound chip, providing 3 channels Mono Sound (via internal speaker) but capable to offer Stereo Sound provided through a 3.5 mm headphones jack (with pretty impressive outcome!). Also, it is possible to play back digital sound samples at a resolution of approximately 5bit. This technique is very processor-intensive though.

Ώρες ατελείωτες με αυτό το παιχνίδι. Πολύ δύσκολο σε ορισμένα σημεία.
