An unpublished game, which I think would have sold reasonably well if it had been released. The game pics are quite appealing and magazines could have explored it commercially had it been more polished.
It's basically a beat-em-up played by old pensionners, not martial arts as you can guess, yet features some traditional punches and kicks. Sound is quite good and the cartoonish feel of it is the most reediming quality of the game, and very well explored. As for the gameplay, well it's basic, even mediocre. It features several "enemies" in a variety of different places, our last oponent is the best by far. Fun for a few plays but not all that engaging.
