Budokan: The Martial Spirit
DOS game, 1989
This is a game about Asian martial arts. You're a young student who is preparing for the big tournament called Budokan. Choose from 4 martial arts: Karate, Kendo - bamboo sword, Bo - Long stick fighting and Nunchaku - that classic bats with chains. At the tournament you can use each of these styles 4 times to defeat the opponent - that is to ensure that you are gonna use different styles. Enemies in the main event are diverse, and just the curiosity that who will be the next will make you wanna play this game more. Before you head to this tournament, you have the opportunity to train in the shack with teachers or yourself.
Everyone started somehow. And the same is true for Electronic Arts. Who would have thought that the small company that released the fighting game Budokan in 1989 will one day be a multinational giant corporation. And what exactly is the Budokan?

Instead of using energy, the game uses stamina (which decreases during exertion and strikes) and Ki, which is something like concentration - the higher, the stronger the strike.
The game really has great graphics at the time. However, the controls are too complicated, so it makes the fight quite frustrating. Which is probably the main burden of this otherwise original game.
