    Although the "new" Karateka was well done, nothing beats the original. This game is perfect. The port is as accurate as you could ever get on a touchscreen. It's slightly easier since you can save your game and thus, the falling get is a bit less scary, but still terrifying enough.
    Glad they chose the Apple ][e version which was way superior to the other ports (aka the PC version) at the time.

    There’s a real satisfying feeling of the game getting more complex the further you get.

    Karateka Classic is a port of a classic fighting game that holds up rather well today.

    Karateka Classic is a superb port of an excellent (if ancient) fighting game, and is a great way to rekindle old memories or to simply see what all the fuss is about.
