Score:124160

Score: 87400

This game is fun. Stage 3 the cargo ship, the weird spread eagle drop kick the little jon Moxley 's do is fantastic and by stage 4 you get to kick a gorilla! 

 

Way more fun than Kung fu.

This was a bold statement to start the thread. Surprised it hasnt stirred up controversy. I played it some last night after getting demoralized by marbles. It is a really fun game amd a great sequel. Definitely an awesome choice for contests. Better than the original though? Thats tough.

Kung Fu is an all-time classic, but this is still a great sequel.  I haven't played it in years, but I just threw it in and played a game as sort of a familiarization exercise with no point-pressing tactics or anything and I didn't even beat the game.  Oh well, I'm on the board initially with: 132, 590.   Sadly, it doesn't show your score on a game over, so here's a new game started with my previous game's score as the "Hi-Score"...

EDIT: 310,640, but I guess I'll have to max the score for a tie with NESFiend...

Final EDIT: joined the 999,999 club, with 14 lives in reserve.  Man, that's an hour and a half of my life I'll never get back... 😞

The title screen cinematic is better than the whole Kung fu experience. 

Alright, someone has to bite. Its a tremendous game from what Ive experienced so far, but kung fu is one of the greatest games ever made. This is a very nice game was some attributes of the original, but kung fu still reigns supreme

Kung Fu is definitely a better challenge; this game (Spartan X-2) is way too easy once you know what you're doing...

I can't tell if you're joking.

 

I was joking about you being a crazy bastard, but I was serious that I thought you still had 2 lives. I thought you were still going because you arent back at the beginning. Should have looked closer and considered the possibility you hit 'continue' at the end. Oopps
