CHINA WARRIOR / Hudson / Turbografx 16

China Warrior is this ridiculous game that was a launch title for the Turbografx, and I guess the idea was that we would all be so impressed by the huge sprites we'd ignore the janky play control.

It's in the mold of Kung Fu Master, that old arcade game where you punch your way through hordes of clones. Basically your generic shirtless Hong Kong action hero has to punch his way through a horde of monks in this one ... I dunno what the monks are up to but they're just sort of walking around. You also fight butterflies. Every now and then some fat American army guy comes out and challenges you to a duel, as well.

It's all so stiff and the hit detection is so junky it's virtually unplayable past the second level.
