Ok Players we are getting slightly closer. 13 players left.
This is where I predict the low score of the week. But first...
Last weeks' prediction was slightly off. I said that 26K would be the low score and we could maybe could see a score of 15K from someone.
Well this is how the bottom 5 looked:

06+ - 25,160 - DT Kofoed 10th
05+ - 24,300 - Fallout_002 11th
04+ - 23,320 - classicgamer_27330 12th
03+ - 21,530 - LarcenTyler 13th
02+ - 10,450 - Cortat G 14th

I was 5K off. Cortat G dodn't have a lot of time to spend on the game so his score was the low score I thought could happen. But 5k lower than predicted. Players needed to spend some time with this game to get good and it showed. The 3 top scores were once again impressive:
15+ - 56,760 - Gorfy 1st
14+ - 54,980 - oyamafamily 2nd
13+ - 50,380 - Jifremok 3rd
Did anyone make it to the end of level 2? Great job if you did.

If you have never played this weeks game, it will also take some time to get a good score.
Kung-Fu Master
Personally I hate fighting games. From Double Dragon to Motal Kombat to Super Smash. I hate them all.
So I will predict that my score will be close to the bottom this week. This is one game I cannot play well.
So, just like the last two weeks, practice is needed.
The low score will be 52K with the possibility of someone getting a nice low score of 28K.
I will get around 52K and someone else without much time to practice will get 28K.
Good Luck. The top 10 is approaching fast.
Vocelli, after playing 20 times: 26960

After about ten tries... nearly hit 100ks.

That last level is tough!

I made a collection of KUNG FU FIGHTING screenshots (many are my end screens)...
the two on the top middle appear to be shaking on it! Come back later, I'll kick your a**!

Here are my tips from my FAQ I wrote for this game:

-For the first boss, rush in, throw a couple of punches, then retreat. Lather, rinse, repeat. Alternatively, you can try crouching outside his kicking range and try punching his gut, but this doesn't always work.

-For the boomerang thrower, he's vulnerable while he's thrown a boomerang. While it's in the air, rush in and punch him.

-For the giant kicker, try to kneel just outside his range of kicking and throw low blows.

-On the fourth floor, you encounter the moths. DON'T (I repeat, don't TRY TO RUN THROUGH THEM! You'll take a lot of damage, and you need as much energy as possible for the lightning wizard.

-The Lightning Wizard is very difficult. You have to punch him in the stomach. Any other attacks won't work. Wait for him to attack, then rush in unload on him. If you have enough energy, you should survive his lightning bolts.

-The Gang Leader (OK, Mr. X) is just as tough as on other consoles. He can attack just like you. Wait for him to attack and watch for patterns, then rush in and strike him with a high kick or a body blow. Then retreat and watch him again, before continuing this.

Okay... I'm now more ticked at this game cause

A) boomerang throwers take at least a half of a second break between throwing their boomerangs (and don't have 3 different positions the boomerang can be)

B) Knife guys can NOT throw NINE (9!) knives in 3.5 seconds... it's not supposed to happen in this game.

C) Knife guys are not programmed to go in for a hug to suck life away, their job is to hang on the outsides and try to knife you.

With those aside, my opening score is 48,200

I take it that when you kick an enemy, the game decides whether or not to give you 100 points. (500 for the knive guys) sometimes I get them and sometimes I don't

Okay, I'm starting to get the feeling of this game (I was unfairly comparing it to the arcade and NES versions, when it should be handled on it's own accord)..

With that being said, let's set the bar, shall we?

I love those kids here, on the NES once they hop ur done for, cant stop them... here, a nice timed punch still kills them, and with the "nice attempt" at side scrolling (which the VCS isn't made for, mind you), if the kid is coming from the right way, it's possible for him to flip up and over you without even touching you at all :)

Got to the Lightning Guy, again, but didn't have anything left.

What's up with those floating moths? Are ya supposed to punch them or run from them or turn on a light so they're drawn to the bulb?
