The first of many karate fighters and what some say to be the first real one on one fighting game ever. A single player competes against a computer opponent using two joysticks to perform a variety of moves. The best two matches, out of three, wins. Karate Champ was made by Nihon Bussan/AV Japan and released in 1984.
Damn son, I just played that Karate Champ and lunge punched me an oxen in the face!
