Hi Karateka is truly an awesome game and Jordan Mechner's first masterpiece (his 2nd being Prince of Persia). I'll be glad to help you play it once again. Just e-mail me for details on how to at rendezvous(at)club.fr. I myself I'm looking for another Apple II game I kinda lost over the years, so perhaps you can help me find it too, then we can both sleep well once more, right? hehe :). Cheers.

Karateka screenshots

Hi I tested several versions of Karateka on a real Apple IIc ; one version will continously reboot at start, while another seems to work fine. Here are some actual TV screen shots of that working version :

Just for fun : the picture below is from an emulator running Karateka showing the Karateka beating Akuma right in front of the Princess in her prison chamber : No retreat, no surrender !

back in the day

I played it on both a IIe and II plus as well as a II clone and i don't remember that problem. I wouldn't be surprised if the rebooting problem was due to copy protection.

Weird Karateka endings :

WARNING : SPOILERS!

The worst and most pathetic ending possible : Akuma defeated, Karateka dead, with the Princess alone and looking on two inanimate bodies :

The Bad, the Good and the Ugly !?

Best ending possible ? Vanquished, Akuma lies dead next to the soon-to-be-wed Princess and Karateka :

The Beast and the Beauty !?

Karateka, arguably the greatest Apple II action game? Cheers Smile

RE: Weird Karateka endings

The only way you get the "worst and most pathetic ending possible" is to approach the princess in a fighting stance after you have defeated Akuma. If you just walk over to her then you'll get the "best ending possible".
