This is a cool little game.
Once you get used to it, its a great way to kill a few hours.
I didn't play it before so I guess Im missing out on the nostalgia...Still I like it! k:

My cousin had this game for an old computer it had (I think it was called Amstrad or something similar) and we loved it. The problem is that I broke the disk so he forbade me from playing any other game for a long time Anyway, I got the remake version from Abandonia Reloaded and now it's time for me to finish it k:
Will anybody find meeeeee... SOMEBODY TO LOOOOVEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

Can this game be played with XP? I'm trying to open it and I just get a black screen. I'm played some other old games and they just open in MS-DOS window. Please help!

Well the game is not WinXP compatible:

So you either need DOSBox - an MS-DOS emulator, or in this case you can even play the Bruce Lee remake - hosted on our sister site (Abandonia reloaded).

played that game often with a friend of mine on my old C64, the hardest room was the one with the many white balls gliding on the floor, where u have to jump through the whole room... we died very often in this level...

but never stopped playing

I know the C64-version. It isnt one of my favorite fighting games but if you like it, download the C64-emulator for Windows on http://www.viceteam.org/ and the original C64-game on http://www.c64games.com/down-fr.html
This one has better graphics/colours.

Used to play this game on my father Amstrad.

This was my first game, and I remember that on side b of my disk I had some sort of wrestling game.


I wonder what an original Bruce Lee game like that would be worth on ebay :-)

Unless you have a rather old computer, I wouldn't dare try to run this in any kind of Windows---even if you did get it to work it would run much too quickly.

And as for whether the game ends...yes and no. There is a final room that Bruce finally finally jumps, fights, and dodges his way to (I think he does a little dance or leaps around a bit when he gets there---maybe it's Pitfall II for the Atari 2600 where that happens and I'm confusing the two) but then the whole thing starts all over again. That's as sophisticated as most games got back then. We were simple folks who walked 20 miles in the snow to school etc. etc. etc.

I was able to figure out that the things you're supposed to collect are lanters...what the %&$^ are those strange white objects that float across the screen and kill you?

The remake over at Reloaded is quite faithful to the original, so go over there and grab that one if you prefer to play it in XP.
Cats always land on their feet, and toast always lands butter side down... Hmmm... what would happen if you strapped a piece of toast on to a cat's back?
