In Bruce Lee you will experience the power and glory of Bruce Lee, one of the greatest masters of the martial arts. As Bruce Lee, you will confront a barrage of vicious foes. You must pentrate, the fortress of the Evil Wizard and claim his fortunes. Destroying the Wizard will earn you immortality and infinite wealth.

A classic platform game. It may have some crude graphics and sound, but the game play is top notch. In it's day it was highly regarded and even now still holds up amazingly well. Simply, one of the best platform games ever written for a home computer. The level design is well thought out, and the in-game obstacles, like streaming pan lights, electrical charges and moving vines are genius. Some nice graphical touches, like turning the lanterns off and the T'sung-lin bushes that are activated by running over them.

WARNING: Playing this flash video will reveal the end game sequence
