For some reason I can't fathom, Chuck Norris post are always really popular. So I thought I'd chuck out another one. (See what I did there?) Chuck Norris Superkicks (1983), was a cartridge based video game that was released on the Commodore 64, Commodore VIC-20, Atari 2600, and Colecovision platforms. Packaged as a "double-ender" (*snigger*) cartridge by XONOX.
The game was an early beat-'em-up style game. What else would it be with Chuck Norris's name attached to it? After the license to use his name the game was re-released under the title Kung Fu Superkicks. Which considering the game is set in Japan, the home of Karate and not China, the home of Kung Fu, it seems a bit of an over-sight. The manual stated. "You are 'Chuck Norris' trying to reach an ancient monastery to rescue a famous leader that is being held hostage. BEWARE!
