[Budget re-release] IK+ (as us trendies call it) is an excellent purchase, well worth getting to involve your mates in some seriously violent fun.
Some may say that beat 'em ups are past their prime, but I defy anyone to pick this up and not get totally hooked. It's got all the elements of a classic, and has the timeless gameplay that'll keep you coming back long after "big" games like R-Type and Starglider II have been relegated to the software shelf.
Génération 4 (Dec, 1988)
Non, je n'ai pas peur de le crier : IK+ est le meilleur karaté que nous ayons sur Atari ! Une animation sans reproche, de superbes bruitages et énormément d'humour.
The One (Oct, 1988)
The moves and blows are accompanied by Bruce Lee-esque swishes, extremely painful-sounding cracks and even the occasional yelp. Brilliant stuff, IK+ is the sort of game you can dig out in a year's time and still enjoy playing. If you buy a beat 'em up this year, make sure this is the one.
Graphics, while similar to those on the C64, move well and the inclusion of intricate backdrops that feature birds flying, submarine periscopes surfacing, inchworms crawling, leaves falling and more, all add to the overall quality. Buy it and get a real kick.
ST Action (Mar, 1993)
Archer Maclean tried his hand at beat'em-ups in the past, and although dated now, this ruled the roost for some years.
IK+ is the best beat'em-up to date, lacking only long-term interest - which can be offset using the two-player option. This aside, IK+ is an enjoyable game.
80 (Nov 19, 2006)
Précurseur des jeux de combats, IK+ se démarque par la rapidité de son gameplay et l'importance donnée au bonus de point pour les meilleurs coups. Un titre à la réalisation certes vieillote mais qui en éclatera plus d'un surtout en multi.
The Atari Times (Jan 01, 2002)
This is the perfect karate game for the Atari. There were other good ones (e.g. Karate Kid) but they either suffered from bad controls or bad graphics.
Power Play (Nov, 1988)
Spieltechnisch kann “IK +“ überzeugen. Da es auf dem Atari ST nur wenige gute Kampfspiele gibt, sollte diese Umsetzung ein Renner werden.
