One of the first semi-realistic side-scrollers for PC. MobyGames has the scoop on this martial arts classic: “Bruce Lee is a decent platform game with a lot of action thrown in. Reflexes are needed to pass certain sections, as is a lot of timing to jump past obstacles. You’re pursued by two enemies, who unrelentlessly come after you, snapping at your heels. It’s very fun for anyone who likes platform games. There is no “easy” mode to help novice gamers get used to the game. Also, fighting the enemies is relatively easy and just gets irritating after a while. Finally, Bruce Lee only runs at the correct speed on a 4.77MHz PC. Well, one more gripe, actually–you’re Bruce Lee, yet you only have two moves, punching and a flying kick. A little disappointing from a master of martial arts. If you love platform games that require good reflexes and timing, Bruce Lee fits the bill.”

The game also features a great range of movement and attacks that makes games such as Bushido simplistic in comparison. Two thumbs up!

Note: If you like the game, also check out Mark Rosten’s amazing 2001 remake of the 16-color Commodore 64 version, also on this site.
