International Karate Available on: C64 / Atari ST / Amstrad CPC / Spectrum

The critically acclaimed and globally adored C64 fighting game first appeared, to universal praise, in 1986.

Lauded for its innovative gameplay as well as impressive graphics and a memorable soundtrack, International Karate (or IK for short) set the standard for all fighting games.

The idea is simple: you have 30 seconds to defeat your martial arts expert opponent by pull off points-scoring moves from the Karate handbook. Whoever scores 2 points first wins and if the counter times out before the points are scored, the person with the highest score wins!

Two wins will then earn you a new belt and move you onto the next stage in order to face off against an even more skilled opponent. There also a two-player mode where you and a friend battle it out in 90-second bouts of vengeance!
