Shao-Lin's Road is a 1985 arcade game released by Konami. This game is also known as Kicker. The game was ported to several early home computers. It has also been featured in classics compilations: Konami Arcade Classics in 1999, Konami Classics Series: Arcade Hits in 2007, and most recently as a game you can purchase on Microsoft's Game Room in 2010. The game is a spiritual successor to Konami's other Kung Fu inspired game Yie Ar Kung-Fu.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The player has to try to kick all the enemies, which if in contact with or attacked by four times, a life is lost. When all lives are lost, the game ends.

When all the enemies are kicked, the player rises up with a smile and yells "GUTS!".

The enemies try to put their hands on their knees and bounce down to the other platform as a way to try to attack.

Ports[edit | edit source]

Shao-Lin's Road was made available on Microsoft's Game Room service for its Xbox 360 console and for Windows-based PCs in March 24, 2010.
