Game of the Month: November 2022 - Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu
« on: November 05, 2022, 11:46:15 PM »
JACKIE CHAN'S ACTION KUNG FU



OK. So, here's a game that is pretty damn good. At the same time I have never given this game much attention. No idea why. Probably to much other stuff to play. Anyways this is late and I'm busy as shit this month so I need a game that's not a time sinker. I wanted another action game so here we go. Lol! Time to get your Kung Fu on. Hope you enjoy.

This is one of my favorite Turbo games.  It's bright, colorful, fun, and it sounds great too.  I've beaten it many times.  I've only got one complaint about it:  my copy died maybe 10 years ago or so.

I've got dozens of games that I would have rather have lost than Jackie Chan.  I think I have around 4 Keith Courage hueys and a few spare TV Sports games from when those titles were $2 in case.  All of them work.  JC though?  I guess he fell off a cloud and got eaten by a tiger.
Current want list:  Bomberman 93

Oooh, this is a game that I never really invested all that much time into!  I will do my best to pop some time off into it!!

Another good choice for GotM.  I've not spent a ton of time with it, but I'll get a chance this month!

I haven't played this game in a billion years. I was surprised by the music... when I played it, I guess I wasn't paying attention, and particularly remember any songs.  Then, later, listening just to choi-tunes... I noticed that some Jackie Chan tracks are great and I'm like "why didn't I notice these tunes when I was playing?"

I have to play this... hopefully soon.

Solid choice for this month. I do play it a lot, but I do not think I ever got a clear. If I remember, it does not have unlimited continues.

Got a couple hours in last night. Still no clear, but limited continues will do that. Got to the 4th stage boss (the pink yokai?) after a good run on the earlier stages and figuring out a grind spot for milking extra lives at the beginning of stage 3. I'll be back for more, I'd love to get a credit roll and being GotM gives me the extra drive I feel I need.

I enjoy the game and LOVE the theme, but it's no Bonk. It's on par with Kato and Ken but at least doesn't have the seemingly random toss backs to earlier levels it has. Not as good looking as New Adventure Island but offers more game mechanics.
