Review of 'Sai Combat'

Rating:4 User: Alessandro Grussu

Sai Combat is an unusual one-on-one martial arts fighting game where you and your opponent battle it out with Bo sticks as well as with your bare feet.

Graphics for the sprites are well drawn and animated, whilst backgrounds look pretty simple in comparison. Gameplay is smooth and involving, with your opponents becoming smarter as you beat them. On later levels you must also be wary of shurikens thrown by assistants placed on both sides of the screen.

Although not as refined as Way Of The Exploding Fist or International Karate Plus, Sai Combat is a worthwhile example of its genre.
