Karate Champ, known in Japan as Karate Dō (空手道), is the classic Technos’ arcade game released in 1984 that inspired titles such as Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter where up to two players will compete in a Karate championship in a series of best-of-three matches.

The game was originally published by Data East and later ported to several other platforms, such as NES, Commodore 64, iPad, iPhone, PlayStation 4, Wii and Switch.

What we have here is the original Karate Champ arcade version ready to be played in your browser, without the need of installation and other hassles.
