Windows-compatible remake of the Commodore game, published in 2001. The player steps into the shoes of legendary martial arts hero Bruce Lee and goes on to a journey in a mysterious temple filled with lethal traps and constantly hunted by two resilient enemies. You'll have to find your way through numerous screens, each hosting a series of collectable lanterns, which - when all picked up - open the gates to the next few rooms. Bruce will face fire, lightning and various spiky objects trying to survive the temple's challenge alive, and the difficulty varies strongly - mostly increasing during the game - from easyish lantern-collecting to infernally difficult jump combinations.
Recommended to all Commodore and platformer enthusiasts, and to everyone else who doesn't mind the simple, clean graphics and gameplay.
Scythe : So, eMTe, did playing Bruce Lee make you young again, or is there a more sinister reason for you being 12 years old?
eMTe : Ive seen BL for the first time in my primary school someday in second half of 80ies, together with - iirc - Jungle Hunter and Krakout. Memories... I still remember boys who were sitting by the comp! Amazing.
Scythe : How can you not fall in love with a game so irreverent that it has a sickly yellow, blocky thing represent Bruce Lee himself? A platformer where you collect paper lamps and beat down ninja and a green sumo called, uhm, "Yamo"? Pure nostalgia.
eMTe : Claws of Fury? Sounds not a bit better than Bruce Lee.
Anyway, this is one of the few 8bit platformers that is still playable for me.
Chroelle : You have to remember this classic game. And once you remember it, there is no turning back... You just have to play it too..
So go download this amazing game from the past. Its free and it is nostalgia at its best.
I still have to grin a bit though, that the original author actually thought... " Hmm...I have this karate game...what should I call it.... Claws of fury, Dragonmaster...Kickflip king...No wait... I will call it.....Bruce Lee..."
eMTe : Who didnt play it, those were the times... I played it on C128, but MobyGames doesnt mention this version, strange... Or maybe it was Amstrad?
This is a very faithful remake, in fact nothing was changed except that game runs smoothly on modern systems. Absolutely recommended!
Atomic Worm is a Snake-like game expanding the original concept. First - snake collects tokens, but if player is able to collect three identical tokens in a row - they disappear. Each time it happens worm acquires temporal shield and speed boost and meter on the left of the screen goes up; when it's full - level is complete and exit to next one opens. Second - bombs await on your way in later levels, so you must watch out not only for worm's trail,... (read more)
