Just so that you know that Android Kung Fu lovers aren't stuck in the eighties with buzz cut hairdos when Yie Ar Kung Fu was the cutting edge of martial arts games and memory foam mattresses were cool Bitmash Labs is making kick 'emus cool for Android again with Hero of Shaolin: it's not just a Kung Fu throwback, but also a first for Android gang with the interactive movie idea borrowed from other '80s video game legends like Mad Dog McGee, Hero of Shaolin is the first Android game based on live-action, martial arts cinema footage. During a match, the game plays a fight scene video. The player must press buttons in sync with the kung fu moves Tuta Shen performs in the movie. Otherwise, the movie transitions to one of several “You Lose” cutscenes.
Theatrical sound effects, retro kung fu music and synchronized haptic feedback add dimension to the overall chop-sockey experience. The game’s melodramatic, English-dubbed dialogues pay tongue-in-cheek homage to the kung fu films of the 1970s.
