This week’s video review features the kung Fu stunt master Jackie Chan. Jackie Chan’s Action Kung Fu was released for the TurboGrafx-16 in 1992 and was an action platform game developed by Now Production and published by Hudson soft.
The story featured Jackie Chan and his sister Josephine serving as protectors of the land and fighting against bad guys until a Prince of Sorcerers kidnaps Jackie’s sister. Jackie sets off on a quest to get his sister back by fighting through five levels each with a boss at the end until he reaches the Prince.
One of the interesting things about this game was the fact that you only had one life, but you could continue up to five times and earn more continues in bonus rounds. Also, you would gain health and power ups by hitting frogs and the power-ups gave you special attacks as well as a charge attack you could use temporarily.
