9. The Way of the Exploding Fist
Forget your Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter or Double Dragon, nothing has ever come close to The Way of the Exploding Fist. Released in 1985, it was quickly ported to the Spectrum and became an instant classic.
The game is a series of one-on-one karate matches, with increasingly difficult fights as you'd expect. Points are recorded using a genuine traditional karate scoring system known as shobu nihon kumite, with a half yin-yang granted for a non-decisive strike, and a full yin-yang only for full finishing blows.
All the moves and blows are drawn from traditional karate techniques, none of yer charged up flame punches here.
