There are sixteen possible moves in two modes which puts Yie Ar Kung Fu a notch or two above the multitude of beat 'em ups that have been launched over the years. Again, all 8 bit titles were converted to a good standard.
Amtix! (Jan, 1986)
Imagine don't have many Amstrad games under their belt but nothing they have ever done compares to this. The graphics are superb and the fighting action the best I have seen. The movement of the warriors is great. I love the way the vanquished chap ends up on the floor, legs waving in the air. As far as I am concerned the people who converted this to the Amstrad have done a first class job: they have set a standard by which I will judge other games.
