Karateka

BREATHTAKINGLY CINEMATIC
From PRINCE OF PERSIA creator Jordan Mechner, the original side-scrolling karate classic comes to new life on iPad and iPhone with art by Jeff Matsuda (The Batman) and music by Grammy-winning composer Christopher Tin (Civilization IV).

FANTASTIC FIGHTING
Easy to grasp yet challenging to master, the rhythm-based karate combat tells a simple human story. Three suitors vie to save Mariko: A fearsome Brute, a noble Monk, and her brave True Love.

HIGHLY REPLAYABLE
« A brilliant life system that delivers variety in the gameplay as well as incredible replay value; you won’t want to stop playing until you rescue Mariko as her True Love and see the storybook ending. » – Touch Arcade

PUNCH THE HAWK!
« Fun for those of us who played the original on an Apple II, Commodore 64, or even an NES, but younger gamers will still appreciate the unique style and easy-to-learn gameplay. » -ArsTechnica

« Karateka is widely considered to be one of the greatest 8-bit home computer games ever created. It wasn’t a game so much as a living story that you, the player, were a part of… The new Karateka legitimately feels like it might be what Mechner’s original idea would have been, if then were now. » – Touch Arcade
