I’ve always been a bit of a karate geek. OK, a lot of one.
Growing up, one of my favourite computer games as a young karateka was the game Karateka, on my trusty Commodore 64. So I was fascinated to see this morning that it looks like this classic game is making a comeback, with an XBox version launched, and PSN, Steam and iOS versions coming later this month. This cool video was made to announce the releases.
I’ve always been a bit of a geek, but not much of a gamer. I’ve never owned a dedicated game console, such as an XBox, but instead have played games on my computing device of the day.
These days my iOS devices (iPhone and iPad) are my game devices of choice, but I’m still not much of a gamer. I do enjoy some word and logic games (Letterpress and Sudoku being key among those), but have to admit I’ll be looking forward to playing karateka, if only for nostalgic reasons.
And the fact that I am still a karate geek.
