Bruce Lee [Homebrew] - Sega Master System [001] PlayThru

Title Screen
NOTE: A trainer was used for making this capture.

Bruce Lee is a homebrew remake of the Datasoft game for the Atari 800/Commodore 64 released in 1984 for the Sega Master System.  Kagesan released the latest version for the Sega Master System on
March 4, 2015.

Gameplay Screen
Bruce Lee is a game I grew up with and played on the Atari 800.  Kagesan took the level design, ported the music over to the Master System, and totally redid the sprites and backgrounds.  The original game on the older 8-bit computers had pretty drab colors, although the sound was decent.  The colors used in the Master System release are vibrant, very well done!

Atari 800 Box Cover
One benefit to this remake is now there are separate attack and jump buttons, since the Sega controller has 2 buttons versus the single fire button on the joysticks used with the Atari 800 and C64.

Definitely give this game a quick look.  And if you like the game, drop by SMS Power and give Kagesan some good feedback!

I do plan on doing a playthru of the Atari 8-bit version of Bruce Lee at some point.

The tune heard in the intro of this video is an Atari 800 (POKEY) version of the title music.
