Kung Fu Monk - from Pocket Boxing Legends & Karate Fighter dev

Kung Fu Monk is an action/fighting game, a homage mashing up some of the best martial arts games from yesteryear.

We're targeting a March AppStore release and looking to line up testers on a range of older and newer hardware. If interested, please provide me with your 40 character uuid, device type, and list of games you've beta tested in the past.

Looks like a nice game. Great homage to Karateka, Kung Fu Master and others.

However, I don't personally like some of the rendered art very much. Especially the princess... she looks like a transvestite. Unless, it's supposed to be a transvestite?

A few more details:
- the princess is an unlockable playable character
- the game features bonus rounds inspired from a 1987 and 1992 arcade game
- we will be supporting Street-Fighter style player vs. player battles over bluetooth, in addition to the main story mode

Slimothy and Master Lee, if you're interested to join the test team, please read the first email in this thread for instructions.
