Classic 80s Game Karateka Gets a Reboot

Almost 30 years ago, the original Karateka was released by Jordan Mechner - a project he hacked together on an Apple II in his college dorm room between classes. It was a huge success and ended up being ported to a wide variety of systems; I remember dumping many, many hours into this when I was a kid on our Apple system.

Jordan went on to create the Prince of Persia series, but hasn't forgotten the joy Karateka brought to many - and today sees the launch of a new Karateka game for a modern age. The reboot offers cinematic gameplay tied together with a rhythm-based karate combat, a dynamic musical score and multiple paths through the game.

It's currently 10% off to celebrate the launch so dive over to Steam to pick it up for USD$8.99. We've got more info, screenshots and trailers on our game page.

The reboot looks terrible compared to the original which hand amazing animation for its time. The animation in this new version is woeful.
