Review
Panza Kick BoxingThe game features both single and multi player mode. The single player mode also offers a career game. You start off with a kick boxer having some random - low - physical capacities, namely strength, resistance and reflex. You can train your boxer to improve these stats. You will improve your resistance by skipping-rope, strength by weightlifting and finally your reflexes by kicking moving targets. However, when using keyboard controls, the training sessions are very difficult. Training and boxing opponents makes you stronger and enables you to challenge better boxers. The moving list is huge and count at least 100 moves/positions available! There the usual low-kicks, high-kicks, punches, back-fists and a lot more to use. Ultimately, you can challenge the best boxer, Andr Panza himself - being an actual triple world champion.

The Amstrad CPC version is quite good, offering really nice graphics for its hardware limitations with vivid colors and smooth enough sprite animations. What is really impressive is the number of available moves for each fighter, all of which are nicely animated! According to the developers, it took two years work to digitize all the blows, falls, foils and to recreate more than 120 combat positions, with the assistance of Andre Panza himself! Pretty impressive that is.
Sound is fine, offering a nice introductory tune, whilst there are a few nicely composed SFX during gameplay when kicking and punching.

Also, it is possible to play back digital sound samples at a resolution of approximately 5bit. This technique is very processor-intensive though.

Φοβερό animation και πολύ καλά γραφικά. Θυμάμαι ότι το τερμάτιζα. Ίσως μπορέσω να το τερματίσω και πάλι αν ασχοληθώ λίγο.
