Podcast 53 : Kung Fu Master

Hwyah! Beat up on guys in pyjamas and annoying clingy children who just want a cuddle!  Avoid venomous butterflies (really?) and ssssnakes and dragons in pots! We kick and punch people on the nose playing Kung Fu Master this show.  Did Shaun snap his joystick off? Did Victor manage to 1cc this game? Are they both hungover? Listen in and find out…

Apologies for the sound quality – Victor was recording through his laptop’s internal mic  instead of the real mics *palm*

  1. Thanks Vic and Shaun for another great episode! Really appreciate all the kind words and praise about Galloping Ghost Arcade; It was nice meeting you and talking games during your ‘Merica trip, Victor.

    When you were looking for recommendations for games that aren’t too hard to loop and mentioned Green Beret (aka Rush ‘N Attack) I immediately though about MIA: Missing in Action, the successor to Green Beret. It’s about as challenging as Green Beret, and I think you both would really like it, being fans of the original game.

    Here’s a link to a 1-credit loop on my youtube channel, if you’re interested:

    Thanks again,

  2. The Sentinel picture is of a small scale foam mock up. Target Outpost was the first version of the game, that version combined a pinball play field with a form of the Akka Arrh gameplay.

  3. Really fun podcast to listen to. I’ll say one thing for Vigilante, besides its fantastic plot: its hit sound effects are (still) the best in the business. So loud and satisfying. They’re like 80s movie punch sounds amplified tenfold. The real reason why it falls short of Kung Fu Master it misses all that game’s design nuance. KFM was all about high and low offense and defense, and juggling all of that and there is almost nothing of that in Vigilante. It wasn’t designed by Kung Fu Master creator Takashi Nishiyama of Street Fighter and Fatal Fury fame, either.
