Rescue your girlfriend in this martial arts fighting game
- Well rendered background graphics
- Smooth animation
- Fiddly controls
- Quite repetitive
- Lacks many real Kung-Fu moves
If you fancy yourself as the next Bruce Lee then you can now put your skills to the test while you're sat on the bus, thanks to this Windows Mobile game.
The plot outline is the same as virtually every Kung-Fu movie I've ever seen - your girlfriend has been kidnapped by an evil family, who just so happen to be experts in hand-to-hand combat. Your mission is to rescue the girl using the wisdom passed onto by your late Kung-Fu master.
If the story sounds unoriginal then just wait until you play the game. It really is like going back in time to 1992 and heading to the nearest arcade. Your little Kung-Fu man must keep walking right, defeating all the other little Kung-Fu men that come his way. It seems that under the tuition of his late Sensei your character has learned an impressive array of two moves - a punch and a kick, which makes this game somewhat annoying.
Sure, the graphics are OK, but with just two pathetic moves to choose from it's kind of a waste of the motion capture technology that the developer of Kung-Fu Master has employed. The sound too is pretty crummy and at times it sounds more like a squabble between two toddlers than a serious martial arts game.
There are lots of bonus levels, special weapons and end-bosses that help to add a bit of variety to Kung-Fu Master, but in terms of its gameplay, this one becomes boring pretty quickly.
