Games TM - - RETRO -

While many will be aware of irem’s clas­sic ar­cade brawler, not many will re­alise it’s based on an old Jackie chan film (Meals On Wheels if you’re ask­ing). it’s the clas­sic tale of a boy who loses his girl­friend to an evil crime boss and must fight his way through a heav­ily guarded tem­ple in or­der to re­trieve her. most of Thomas’s en­e­mies seem keen to hug him to death, so care­fully placed kicks and punches are needed to keep them at bay so he can reach the armed bosses at the end of each stage. its cre­ator, Takashi Nishiyama went on to make some game called Street Fighter.
