Kung Fu Master for Colecovision SGM

Recommended Posts

It would be a bit difficult to pull off a good version of Kung-Fu Master on the CV. Definately possible, but there would be visual trade-offs, given the graphical limitations of the console. :)

Ah good , there it is already done. Looks pretty good. So then Gladiator is the next best idea right. :) . It even uses a z80 cpu. Probably impossible. But one of those games that I always enjoyed in the arcade when I visited Hampton beach.

when i said already done, i was joking... it exists on MSX.

 

And as it seems with the Super Game Module we will be flooded with MSX port... :( it is like it is already done...

That's not a bad port at all, but the enemies look all wrong. If someone decides to port this to the SGM, I hope they make some improvements. I think it could definitely be better.

Part of the catalog..... ;)

Does that mean you are planning to port this? Also, is that screenshot a sample port?

Probably a simple mockup. My question would be this: Would the scrolling be smooth or tile-based (meaning that it would scroll in increments of 8 pixels)?

Smooth scrolling, of course... :)

 

This makes me very happy. I am a big fan of this game. I have it on the NES, but a Colecovision SGM version would be the coolest.

Hmmm... Then looking at your mockup, those red-and-white windows are going to give you problems with the blue walls and yellow beams. Too many colors too close to each other. The SGM can't help you with that. ;)

 

EDIT: Same goes for the symbol on the red pilar. Even if you display the black symbol using a sprite, you still have white, red and blue pixels too close to each other on the same scanlines.

I'm no Colecovision expert, but I took the mockup image and converted it to C code using BMP2PP.exe and PP2C.exe and then ran it in blueMSX. Aside from a tiny glitch in the symbol on the pillar, the rest looks pretty much spot on.

You have also the guys that cause problems... This screenshot is pure "vaporware" mockup in the vain of what coleco did... :)

 

Even without scroll at all , i think it would be hard to do it as the screenshot .(the guys need to be animated...)

Sorry to bump a 5 year old thread, but was it eventually determined that it was impossible to do the game in the style (arcade version) of the screenshot? I see that Collectorvision released a port of the MSX version in 2016. But, does Opcode still have plans for an Arcade version, or was that scrapped all together?

Oy IK+ on commodore and amiga and even GBA was amazing! I would love to see a smooth game of that with 1 or 2 players with the computer playing #3.

 

So so many games I would love to see on the "-vision" consoles!

Never played Kung Fu Master, But I did play International Karate on the C64

International Karate was basically a knock-off of Karate Champ (and a good one at that.)

 

On a side note, being driven around by Archer MacLean at insane speeds around the British countryside in his super cars was one of the most terrifying and thrilling moments of my life! lol
