Bruce Lee

It's finally available on the BBC. Bruce Lee is a lively up-and-at-'em martial arts adventure which has our Bruce kicking and chopping his way through a perilous fortress in search of infinite wealth and the secret of immortality.

He's not left to do so in peace, needless to say. The fortress is full of dangers, including the dreaded Green Yamo and the fiendish, stick-wielding Ninja.

As he progresses through the many levels and secret chambers of the fortress, the going gets really rough - there are electrical charges, exploding bushes, and finally the awesome powers of the wizard himself.

Apart from moving left, right, up and down, jumping and ducking, he has only two moves with which to defend himself, a chip and a kick. A paltry armoury for a master like Bruce, you would think, but it's enough to make the Green Yamo stop and think.

The graphics are colourful, if rather crude, but don't let that put you off, even if the price does. Bruce Lee neatly combines arcade action with martial arts in a very entertaining package.
