Default Karate Champ XL

Before there was Street Fighter before there was Tekken, there was one arcade fighter to rule them all....

KARATE CHAMP XL (iPad Version).

The original arcade fighter from Data East that spawned a thousand imitators!
The very first fighting game and to many the game that embodies what a fighter should be.

iTunes Link.



More than a blast from the past and a must-have for your fighting game / retro collection, Karate Champ is unique for it's use of TWO STICKS NO BUTTONS and VERTICAL screen.

This not only makes it unique among the fighting game fraternity but perfectly suited to the iPad from a control viewpoint.

This is no button masher, it's about skillfully executing perfectly timed karate moves against ever more challenging opponents in your quest to become the one true Karate Champ!

Rebuilt from the ground up from the team that bought you the critically acclaimed 'Cobra Command' and 'Banzai Rabbit', Karate Champ is a beloved retro classic without peer.

Features include:

- Dual Stick Control (no D-Pad or buttons).
- Virtual arcade cabinet surround (no thumbs covering the action)
- Vertical orientation
- 1 Player vs CPU over 12 environments
- 2 Player SPLITSCREEN HEAD TO HEAD MODE
- 2 Player Mode via Bluetooth and WIFI !!
- all the bonus rounds
- all the classic 80's sounds
- Various New User Settings
Super large Character Option
Customise the arcade unit facia
Old school scanlines on/off
- and much much more.

Hajime Fight!

Karate Champ XL is fantastic! I was wondering why it was taking so long to be released but you can taste the love in the game. The fighting mechanics, whilst being a little bizarre by todays standards, are still well balanced, it controls great and two player matches can get pretty exciting. Top stuff.

I remember loving this game when I was a kid. How is it for a just one player game. Does it get boring or tedious. I don't remember...

Single player mode is solid, I kind of wish it had a replay mode so I can rewatch my most awesome points.
