#353 – Kung-Fu

                                                                                                                                     Kung-Fu (warning: does not contain any actual kung-fu)     And by kicking over his opponent, Kung-Fu Man realized he would spend the rest of his days in a wheelchair.   PLAYERS: 1-2 alternating PUBLISHER: Nintendo DEVELOPER: Irem GENRE: Action/Arcade RELEASE DATE: October 1985   Kick, punch, it’s all in the mind.

#352 – Krusty’s Fun House

                                                                               I like that Bart’s smiling while Krusty’s being attacked by rats.                                  This screen cap explains everything you need to know about the game, and yet, it’s so vague…   PLAYERS: 1 PUBLISHER: Acclaim DEVELOPER: Audiogenic GENRE: Puzzle RELEASE DATE: September 1992   I’m all for watching hours of “The Simpsons” … Continue reading #352 – Krusty’s Fun House

#253/351 – George Foreman’s K.O. Boxing

                                                 Sure, Foreman’s all smiles, until Eddy “The Pirate” Preston knocks his teeth out.                                                                                      So George… how ’bout that Punch-Out game, huh? Pretty neat.   PLAYERS: 1-2 simultaneous PUBLISHER: Acclaim DEVELOPER: Beam Software GENRE: Sports RELEASE DATE: December 1992   I never expected a boxing game to be so depressing, but … Continue reading #253/351 – George Foreman’s K.O.

#350 – The Krion Conquest

                                                                              Glenda the Good Witch and the Tin Man strike out on their own.                                                                   I feel as though I’ve seen this game before, perhaps six different times…   PLAYERS: 1 PUBLISHER: Vic Tokai DEVELOPER: Vic Tokai GENRE: Action RELEASE DATE: January 1991   First of all, let me express how terribly … Continue reading #350 – The Krion Conquest

#347 – Klax

                                                                         “You’ve been klaxing again, haven’t you Billy?”                                           Electric Light Orchestra should have composed the soundtrack for this game.

Klax says, “Screw your outdated Soviet imagery and folk tunes. … Continue reading #347 – Klax

#346 – KlashBall

                Despite what this cover shows, you don’t actually play outdoors, surrounded by adoring fans.                                                                               KlashBall looks confusing, but it’s really just gussied-up soccer.   PLAYERS: 1-2 PUBLISHER: Sofel DEVELOPER: Sofel GENRE: Sports RELEASE DATE: July 1991   If KlashBall is the sport of the future, then it really needs to … Continue reading #346 – KlashBall

#345 – Kiwi Kraze

                                                                  I’m going to guess that this game sold poorly for obvious reasons.     This is the original title and cover for Kiwi Kraze.

His puffy pink design (complete with … Continue reading #344 – Kirby’s Adventure

#343 – Kings of the Beach

                                                                      Truly this cover deserves a proper burial in a New Mexico landfill.                                                                                                                           Let the volleyball bro-down commence!   PLAYERS: 1-4 simultaneous PUBLISHER: Ultra Games DEVELOPER: Konami GENRE: Sports RELEASE DATE: January 1990   Beach please, Konami must have a mental disease!
