    Data East sued Epyx and 3 System for copyright infringement since they felt that International Karate looked a lot like their Karate Champ.

    They lost the lawsuit.

    otherwise good karate game is spoiled by opponent who doesn´t know he can turn around (!!!!!!!).

    .....Very interesting playtesting at endurance, me thinks. Because of that, it was very easy to jump behind your opponent to knock him out, and thus it was very easy to get very long in the game.

    Graphics are good and judge who talked such things as "BEGIN", "FULL POINT!", "HALF POINT!" and "STOP!" (even he sounded very metallic;) was wonderful thing in the past!

    Music in title screen was really COOL!!! It is great shame as it last just about 20-30 seconds..... it is same great track as in spectrum/commodore 64 game "Glider Rider"!

    Is there any MSX other game where same (hopefully longer version) track is used?
