Who doesn't love 'The Way of the Exploding Fist'? There will be people, no doubt, but few will doubt that it is one of the great 8-bit martial arts classics.
There was never a PC version, not even a direct conversion of the Spectrum one (the British/Australians were not used to doing it), and Ángel García Delgado knew it, as he knew that he had to make games in record time to get to his appointment with the kiosks.
Whether out of necessity or admiration, the truth is that he traced the characters from the Spectrum version of the Melbourne House game and placed them on a stage with scrolls and platforms ... And it was not bad!
Okay, there is no sound but a few miserable beeps, and that the game is repetitive, but it has charm to handle that character that so many good times had made us go through, moving him around the screen without the limitations of yesteryear ... At least if you had a Spectrum.
Lower the DOSBox cycles (Ctrl + F11) down to 500, at least, or the game will be too fast.
