Classic Game Review: Competition Karate

Classic Game Review: Competition Karate

Karate competition (CK) is the treatment of the first computer I have. The world of martial arts and combat So it was a pleasant surprise to discover that Ed Badasov, the game’s creator has to capture a job well done, the sense of competition karate. Not only the development of effective competition in the very realistic game, with nice graphics and sound effects, but you are also a world in which his life hunting CK. The powers, have the option in the “Dojo” (the Japanese name for the gym, which means “place to explore how”) to practice under the watchful eye of his instructor and increase capacity.

The first step in the world of CK is to create wrestlers, and the first step in creating a new game is the selection of a teacher. CK has five different teachers to choose from, each of them specializes in three specific features of the fighting. Each wrestler ranked in nine different categories, including strength, flexibility, speed, endurance, feet, arms, etc newly created characters usually averaging between ten and 13 in any capacity, and are entitled to a training session before his first tournament.

With each workout, you can choose between individual and general training. Specific training allows your fight for improvements in three important ways to bring your nine, but may suffer reductions in other skills this. A general training offered less dramatic improvements, but none of his fighters skills will suffer cuts accordingly. At the end of each session, students will receive a bonus teachers in the three areas where specialized teachers. You must be very careful in choosing your instructor will stick with him throughout his career. Once you have created a stable of fighters, the real fun begins. Tournaments are computer controlled and consist of 2-32 competitors.

At the beginning of each game, you can control the game, if they play against another human or the computer, or if you just want to see only the computer control both fighters. Games are three rounds each and are awarded on a point with a point for each punch or kick effectively. Players have the opportunity to defend an attack with three different types of kicks and punches, against a determined attack, or fall by the wayside. The gameplay is a bit beyond the mere alternating attacks by the two players. An arrow on the top of the screen indicates that the fighter has momentum in the fight, and fighters who decide to attack. It may be that a player can make the most of the attacks when he has a great advantage over their opponents, as you and I probably have very few strikes against Chuck Norris or Muhammad Ali.

The fatigue plays a role in CK. As indicated above, the resistance of the elements composing each fighter. With increasing resistance fighter, he will be able to attack more frequently without tiring. Caution exhaustion! The surest way to be knocked out cold dizzy and your opponent has connections with a rocket back in his head. The judges are, as should be slightly sticky non-combative attitude. If your soldiers do not attack by two or three times, it will probably be advised to save time. If you said it was better to act soon or lose a point have shaped your guests.

Finally, not clumsy and inefficient attacks discouraged by their white and yellow ribbons. As those who have practiced and know what kind of sport, you have time to be good. Karate is no different, although his team. Stay with her and your fighter finally get the hang of.

In summary, the karate competition is always worth a visit. I have been involved in the world of Judo and Taekwondo (Korean karate style). Make some friends addicted and then you can create a group activity is really nice. I have understood that one of the start game testers was so excited, he started taking karate lessons. It’s just to show that you never know. What kind of emotion that ends when you start your computer tonight

Battlestar Galactica As a Game

Battlestar Galactica As a Game

Battlestar Galactica is a popular science fiction series, the momentum has picked up (from 1978 roots) with a 2003-series regular television mini-series and 2004-2009 that followed.

For our readers who are not familiar with the world of Battlestar Galactica:

Battlestar Galactica takes place in remote human stars take a series of planets as the “Twelve Colonies” known. People were at war with a cybernetic race known as the Cylons until sold by a renegade named Baltar. The Cylons, Baltar using could ambush the people and destroy the Twelve Colonies. As a result, people who survive to escape the ship and one of them is called “Battlestar Galactica”. The ship Battlestar Galactica appears to be the military, the only survivor of the Cylon attack exploitation. The intrigues of the series continue to progress as the Battlestar Galactica and her crew when seeking a legendary refuge known simply as “Earth”.

Following the success of the original series in 1978, companies such as Mattel attempted to create games in the universe of Battlestar but built in vain. The values ??of mass production and the time, which could surround the game development time is a factor in the poor quality … as a matter of fact, against the development of the calendar, the quality is probably why you see a lot of games this year in a desert somewhere buried in Utah …

The second major attempt at a Battlestar Galactica game took place in 2003, after the Renaissance to produce the miniseries, but again received negative reviews and tests limited commercial success.

Since launching in 2003 we have seen both versions and mobile bidimensional XBLA taken the same general lack of enthusiasm.

So what happens?

“How can a popular series of science fiction fans of the games as games that keep spawning here?”

In my opinion, Battlestar Galactica universe is waiting for a successful game adaptation. However, its success requires a developer with the vision to realize that some similar games in a format that creates the universe and it is better that the fans should be prepared.

Previous violations of Battlestar Galactica in a successful game seem to turn more to the lack of judgment on some items, or a number of elements that make it suitable for the world of interactive entertainment.

What is needed for success is the sincere desire to put the part of the developer, a production of high quality games, they can access an innate attraction type fan base and universal elements format suitable for development ,’s strengths.

For me it’s a two obvious candidates, RTS and RPG.
