Not quite got my head round this one. Got this far just using the short jab kick.

Bit better... still too many keys but getting a few combos in and making contact occasionally like doing a forward somersault with a reverse sweep, usually only try that if my flying kick fails to land and I'm too close to try it again.

Sometimes I mess up the keys though and instead of the sweep I end up back somersaulting straight back to where I started and usually end up with a fist in my chest :oops:

I'm enjoying this game... :) Now up to 4th dan, and a new high score... 32,800

Here are the points you can get for each of the different moves. Note that it's possible to get the full "perfect" score for a move if you're currently on 1 and 1/2 points, so for example using a flying kick you can score 2 perfect + 1 imperfect moves for 2500 points, plus the remaining time bonus.

Code: Select all

Keys   Move              Score
-----  ----------------  ----------
Esc+D  Mid kick           200 / 100
Esc+C  Short jab kick     200 / 100
Esc+X  Forward sweep      400 / 200
C      Jab                600 / 300
X+D    Low punch          800 / 400
E      High punch         800 / 400
Esc+E  High kick          800 / 400
Esc+Q  High back kick     800 / 400
Esc+Z  Backwards sweep    800 / 400
Esc+W  Flying kick       1000 / 500
Esc+A  Roundhouse        1000 / 500

Changed my tactics a bit - going for the flying kick, and dropping back to the old short jab kick if that fails.

You will, it's just a matter of patience at this level to outsmart the machine. Once you get past 3 then your score goes up better.

First attempt : 0
Second attempt : 300 (strangely enough, didn't bother with screenshot)

Will try again ... but I find it hard enough to play games that require three keys let alone 16 (or whatever) ... ](*,) :-({|=

Not a bad game, though!

(Is it cheating to play 2 player mode and keep KOing player 2 ... I've got to 1800 that way already! :lol: )
