Sega Master System HSC - 2022 Summer Round 3 - Martial Arts Double Feature

Recommended Posts

Play both Black Belt and Kung Fu Kid - combine the scores, and that's the total for this round.  Feel free to post scores separately, I'lla dd them up.  High nostalgia factor for me this round, as Black Belt was one of the very first games I bought for my Master System.  I never had Kung Fu Kid back then, but about 20 year ago I randomly worked with a guy that also had a Master System growing up and we had many debates over whether Black Belt or Kung Fu Kid was better.

This round runs from July 11 - July 24

Top score gets 10 points, next best score gets 9 points, etc.

 

Bonus Point: Name your favorite movie with "Ninja" in the title that hasn't already been named.  You cannot choose a movie someone else has named.

 

Black Belt + Kung Fu Kid + Bonus

  1. Razzie.P 896,500 (346,300 + 550,200) = 10 (+1 Revenge of Ninja)
  2. jeremiahjt 881,800 + 0 = 9 (+1 American Ninja)
  3. BydoEmpire 460,500 (250,400 + 210,100) = 8 (+1 Enter the Ninja)
  4. Dashopepper 321,500 (232,600 + 88,900) = 7 (+1 3 Ninjas)
  5. fakecortex 187,100 (139,100 + 48,000) = 6 (+1 Beverly Hills Ninja)
  6. Cynicaster 395,400 (273,000 + 122,400) = 5
  7. Asaki 148,300 (111,600 + 36,700) = 4 (+1 Revenge of Ninja)

Well it's not Ninja Turtles, but Revenge of the Ninja is pretty terrible.

 

BTW there's an English translation of the original Japanese Black Belt (based on Fist of the North Star, IIRC), but I think the scoring is a little different.
Not sure if I've played Kung Fu Kid before.

Made it to the fourth level boss on my second attempt and I could not even hurt him.  I do not remember how to beat him, but every punch and kick I threw at him had absolutely no effect.  My best score was 338,800.  Add that to my Kung Fu Kid score and we have... 338,800.

I've never played either of these before today.  I put a bit of play time in each, but nothing good yet.  Used a calculator to add my scores and it returned a laughing emoji.   ?

 

... not really, but still, I felt the shame.

LOL, lots of digits eh?  You can just post each score separately, I'll add them up.

Holy flashbacks, I could be wrong but I think this just might be my first exposure to emulation, back in the late 90s:

 

https://web.archive.org/web/20000816000425/http://www.classicgaming.com/museum/sms.shtml

 

https://web.archive.org/web/20000815070325/http://www.classicgaming.com/vault/smsroms-AM.shtml (all dead links now, of course)

 

I had never heard of the SMS before, but I saw some familiar titles and had to check them out.

 

I remember downloading Bonanza Bros., Golden Axe, Golden Axe Warrior, and Mortal Kombat.

Probably Altered Beast and Bart Simpson vs. the Space Mutants?
Maybe Gauntlet, Moonwalker, Rampage, and Sonic?

Hmm, maybe it was a different site, because I definitely remember downloading WWF Wrestlemania Steel Cage Challenge as well, and they don't have it.

I remember Harry Tuttle's The Dump too, but that came a bit later: https://web.archive.org/web/19990204024403/http://www.classicgaming.com/thedump/

I've never played either of these before. Hard not to compare them to Kung Fu on NES, which sorry, is the winner for me.

 

For anyone who was as lost as me as to how I was seeming to randomly jump high in Black Belt, here are the manuals, plus a gem from each:

 

Black Belt: https://www.retrogames.cz/manualy/SMS/Black_Belt_-_SMS_-_Manual.pdf

"Kyoko, your beautiful Japanese girlfriend, has gotten herself into a beautiful Japanese mess." Can't make this stuff up folks.

 

Kung Fu Kid: https://www.retrogames.cz/manualy/SMS/Kung_Fu_Kid_-_SMS_-_Manual.pdf

"Wang will be awarded more life after he reaches 30,000 points. At this time, one additional opportunity to collapse will be given to him." And collapse I will.

 

So in BB, the final boss is Wang (the jerk who seems to be orchestrating this beautiful Japanese mess ?). And in KFK, your character is Wang. Now I'm not saying there's a connection, but I'm not not saying it either...

And for my first scores...

 

Black Belt - 139,100 (died at first boss)

I like how the enemies break apart and explode like the baddies in Altered Beast. Does anyone know what happens when you collect the floating items? I couldn't tell if I got bonus points. Didn't see it in the manual.

 

Kung Fu Kid - 48,000

Don't think I got far at all.

 

Going from one to the other gets you all turned around with jumping. I keep wanting to press up in KFK. It is easier to jump all around in that one tho.

 

TOTAL: 187,100

Whoops, forgot to include the total

Too many wangs in this round.

New score for Black Belt of 441,700.  I could not beat the stage 4 boss so I went to Youtube and watched a video for the rhythm.  I made it to the stage five boss and had her down to no health.  I hit her multiple times each with a flying kick, standing kick, crouching kick, standing punch, and crouching punch when her health bar was empty and nothing finished her off.  After the fight I realized I need to hit her with a flying kick while she is in the air.  I cannot believe I did not try that one.

Improvement to 474,300.  I made it to Wang, the final boss a couple of times, but have not been able to finish him off yet.

 

Edit: made it to him again, this time with all my lives. The result was the same though. I did get him down to his last hit point, but I hit him with I think a jumping kick, and it did not finish it. My bet would be a standing punch for the last hit.

Finally defeated Wang on my last life.  Luckily I think I had my highest score going into the final boss yet.  Score after defeating Wang was 623,000.  I then entered the code to go into the secret chapter seven.  I died with a score of 683,800 in chapter seven, but I doubt we will count anything after defeating Wang in chapter six.

@BydoEmpire I see you put in my score for chapter seven. i guess that means I need to try to complete chapter seven now too. I guess this gives me a reason to give Black Belt some more time. Which since I do not have Kung Fu Kid I need to get my Black Belt score as high as possible

haha, it's the score that counts to play as much as you want!  I've never beaten Wang, and I didn't even know there was a chapter 7.  More power to you!

I finally did it, I made it through chapter seven.  I died once fighting Gonta at the end of chapter three, which did not bode well for the rest of the game.  Fortunately I made it through chapters four and five without dyeing, I may have lost a life on the chapter five boss, Rita.  I lost one life to Wang, but beat him on my second try.  I found a pretty good rhythm to beating him.

 

In chapter seven I beat Ryu with only being hit once.  I beat Hawk without getting hit even once for the very first time.  Gonta hit me once, but Oni never laid a hand on me.  Rita tore me up the first time we fought.  The second time I beat her with only one section of my life bar left.  That meant Wang only had to hit me twice to finish me off and he did rather quickly.  My next attempt went much better though.  I was able to finish him with a few sections on my health bar still left.  I still had another life in reserve too if he would have won that match.

 

My new, and last, score is 881,800.  I am happy with that score and I will not be trying to beat it.  Black Belt was the very first Master System game I ever beat when I first started playing Master System back in the mid-2000s.  Of course back then I did not know about chapter seven.  I can now retire it for a while again.

First game of Black Belt in several years. I really dig it, I forgot about the awesome animation after you beat a boss. That was (and still is) so cool.  I've never beaten it, but maybe now's my incentive. I got destroyed by Gonta in this game: 250,400 (had to wait for attract mode to get a shot of my score).

Kung Fu Kid -- 550,200

Black Belt -- 346,300

 

 

I've been focusing on Kung Fu Kid for the past couple of days, and can finish it without too much trouble, now.  I really like that one quite a bit!

 

I started working on Black Belt last night, and gonna focus on it over the next few days with hopes to finish it.  So far, I haven't found an answer for the 4th boss.  I can get there without too much trouble, but I've yet to actually land a hit on the boss.  Gonna have to queue up a Rocky montage of me watching youtube and reading game faqs to get stronger for next time.
