History repeats itself in both video games and colas it seems. Years after releasing the original Karateka
, Jordan Mechner
revised the formula, giving the world "new" Karateka
. Some people liked the new flavor – others, not so much
. Hearing the demand of fans everywhere, Mechner has announced that Karateka Classic
is coming back, specifically to iOS and Android.
recreates the Apple II experience – right down to the disk drive noises – and offers a range of "monitor" choices, including color CRT, green or amber display. There are a couple of new additions, including gameplay tips and a rewind feature that can be earned, allowing players to reverse their mistakes.
arrives on iOS and Android tomorrow for $0.99.
