Kung Fu Heroes, known in Japan as Super Chinese (スーパーチャイニーズ, Sūpā Chainīzu?), is a 1986 video game developed in Japan by the company Nihon Game, and released in North America in 1988. It features an overhead view and up to two players may play simultaneously. It is a direct port of the earlier arcade game Chinese Hero developed by Nihon Game at the time the company was involved in the coin-up industry. Kung Fu Heroes is an NES port of Chinese Hero, and unlike other titles in the series, it does not incorporate any console role-playing game elements in the gameplay.

Story[edit | edit source]

Monsters have taken Princess Min-Min captive and have stolen the 10 treasures of the nameless land the game takes place in, leaving everything in sorrow. Kung-fu Masters Jacky and Lee return from training and must set out to rescue the princess and find the treasures.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The player controls one of the characters, Jacky or Lee, and each level pits the player against countless enemy warriors. The goal is for the player to defeat enough enemies so that the door at the top of the room opens allowing the player to exit the room and proceed to the next. Enemies' attacks and weapons vary throughout the game. There are quite a number of BONUS levels which players can enter.
