Kung Fu (NES) is the Retro Game of the Day for 26 May, 2016

Just a quick one today, an NES game that is very difficult to master and yet so fun to play.  Horizontally scrolling beat-em-up that features a bunch of enemies thrown at you that you have to deftly avoid while still avoiding others also still coming at you.  Trying to avoid the knife-throwing guy?  Watch out for the short guy that can jump onto your head coming from the other direction.

I never completed this game, but I’ve come close, and honestly, it just keeps getting meaner and meaner while still being very fair and making you feel like a moron for messing up.  Mark of a good game, vs. modern games where all you do is curse the game itself for being evil.
