Kung-Fu: The Way of the Exploding Fist

Commodore 64 - Released - July 15, 1985

The game encourages improvement and competition by storing high scores. The main difference is that this Pac-Man clone contains digitized speech. If a monster catches you then the computer screams 'Oh Shit!'. A non-offensive version of this game was released under the name Oh...
