YieArKungFu Gameplay.

A martial artist armed only with his fists and feet attacks opponents with powerful limbs and/or weapons. Successful attacks deplete your opponents’ life bars enabling your character to progress onwards in the martial arts tournament.

The game has two different levels of martial arts contests. Each has number of different stages where your character must face a different opponent.

The first level is Hot Fighting History and is set inside of a cave. The level has five stages and the order of opponents is Buchu, Star, Nuncha, Pole and Feedle.
The second level is Master Hand History and is set outside of a palace. The level has six stages and the opponents are respectively Chain, Club, Fan, Sword, Tonfon and Blues.

Both hand-to-hand and projectile attacks are employed by opponents and different martial arts styles are represented.
Combinations of buttons and joystick movements enable different types of attacks in jumping, crouching and standing positions.
