Comment
The most realistic 2D martial arts game of the 80s. Try to win the match by scoring points, rather than knocking your opponent out. It featured a unique dual-joystick control system, where one controlled movement and the other controlled your attacks. A couple of mini-games break up the matches; beware of the bull! Karate Champ is a classic that some may consider the first real fighting game.
