Budokan: The Martial Spirit Amstrad CPC Title screen


Not an American user?


Budokan is a martial arts game covering Karate (unarmed combat), Kendo (using a wooden sword), Nunchaku (using piercing chain weapons) and Bo (using a staff). The player has a realistic range of moves and must use them wisely, as Ki (life-force) is drained for every move made, whether successful or not, and both this and your stamina level must be kept high.

You can practice your skills alone, or spar against the instructors or your friends. Finally, when you feel you are ready, you can travel to the martial arts world championship tournament at Budokan.

If you wait long enough in front of the tournament building, you can see the Godzilla walking in the cityscape.

Cover Art

The samurai character for the cover art of some home computer versions was directly lifted from a Japanese propaganda poster that originally featured the axis powers and included a swastika. The original poster can be seen e.g. here.
