This game is in my top 3 favorites of the Atari 800. It is superb, the music is awesome, the control is great. A must have in your collection.

I remember hours spent playing this game. Jump kick was my favourite

Oh my gosh, what a classic. One of the very first fighting games ever, this was great head-to-head or against the computer. The flying double-leg kick and the accompanying sound effect of your opponent taking them in the face was the most memorable moment, followed closely by getting a drop punch in the nards.

Trivia

Excerpts from an interview with Archer Maclean by James Hague...

JH: "What was the inspiration for International Karate?"

AM: "The first karate game happened because I was asked to help out with improving the graphics in the early development game being handled by a team. I ended up taking the whole project over and redoing most of it from scratch."

JH: "Was there ever any thought to reviving either of the International Karate games?"

AM: "I understand that there is something happening along those lines by the original development house but I have no part in any of it whatsoever, despite any publicity you might read. I would quite like to do my own new karate-themed game but unlike any of the normal design ideas. Sure, it will use state of the art technology and motion capture but a whole lot more gameplay and ideas than currently seems to be the norm."
