Karate Champ was a popular fighter back when it first released on iOS in 2010, but the recreation of the 80's classic was knocked out by the newer resolutions and screens. Well, it has picked itself back up and brings a new fight to the arena! It received an update that adds retina graphics, 16:10 ratio, improved 2 Player sparring through bluetooth or wifi, and kickin' new menus! So get back into the fight!

Karate Champ is a retro gaming throwback that will certainly take you back to the simpler times when games didn't need good graphics or controls or stories. Boy, I'm glad it's 2010.

Arcade Classic “Karate Champ” coming to iPhone!

Posted by Jason Fanguy on March 23rd, 2010

I remember going to video game arcades in the 80’s and feeding all of my hard-earned allowance into the mouths of select, unassuming coin-operated, wood-encased predators.

While the majority of arcades all died off in the mid-to-late 80’s, there are developers who still work to bring us back to those beloved, nostalgic days of soda-soaked fingers and greasy joystick bliss, only without the joysticks.

One of my favorite games was Data East’s arcade classic, Karate Champ, which, in addition to providing me with hundreds of hours of entertainment, played an integral role in teaching me Karate moves I would later need to fiend off bullies, thugs and arcade employees.

Imagine my delight when I learned Revolutionary Concepts is working to bring the original fighting game that started it all to the iPhone! Karate Champ’s controls consisted mainly of two joysticks and only those players with expert timing, intuition and the satisfaction of knowing Chuck Norris would be proud were declared winner.

Karate Champ will include:

  • Dual Stick Control

  • 1 Player vs CPU over 12 environments

  • 2 Player Mode via Bluetooth and WIFI

  • Classic 80’s sounds

  • Look for it in April!
