Karate is a fighting video game for the Atari 2600, released by Ultravision in 1982. The game allows for both single-player and two-player modes, where players can engage in combat against each other or the computer. The objective is to achieve a black belt by winning a series of fights.
Players control their fighter using the joystick to perform various kicks and punches, with each move earning different point values when executed successfully. The fights have a duration of two minutes, and at the end of this time, the points earned by each player are tallied to determine the winner.
Karate offers two difficulty levels, providing a suitable challenge for players of different skill levels. The game focuses on strategy and timing, requiring players to utilize their fighting moves effectively to come out on top in each match.
