A progenitor of such titles as Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat, Yie Ar Kung-Fu is a groundbreaking, quickly paced game in which players control Oolong through a series of one-on-one fights against 11 different characters, most of which brandish a weapon. Oolong himself has a variety of punches and kicks at his disposal, and bars at the top of the screen indicate how much damage the fighters have sustained. The characters lack detail and are very small, but they are varied and distinctive. Also, the difficulty curve is less than smooth with some characters being pushovers and others being quite tricky to defeat. Still, the game is action-packed and strangely addictive. More importantly, it paved the way for future fighting games. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
