Description

Rag Doll Kung Fu is a mouse-driven fighting game where the fighters are completely and totally incapable of moving at all without the player's aid. That means you're not just going to press a key to walk in a direction; you quite literally must pick up one foot after the other to make a character walk, or rather just drag them by the hand.

Combining these movements with a ragdoll (duh) physics engine and a little bit of chi power, fighters battle in a dramatic struggle to awkwardly yet gracefully beat each other into oblivion. Or they could just play soccer, or one of several other physics-based minigames. The single player portion includes about 20 minutes of FMV cutscenes.

Rag Doll Kung Fu Windows Ouch. My twisted limbs defense probably hurts more than his headbutt would have....
Rag Doll Kung Fu Windows Dude looks like a lady... or, parts of one anyway. Mix and match body parts to create your own warrior.
