Kung Food - The Atari Times

Kung Food

A real food fight is more fun
by Dan Loosen

Ugh. This review is going to end up short because by the time that you are done reading this sentence, you could've found out how bad this game was by trying it out. I'll start out by listing the good things about this game:

All right. That's it. Now, onto the bad things. The game's sound is horrible. The gameplay itself is about what you would expect from an early generic beat-em-up, and not something that was released in 1992. The graphics are poorly animated, and the "action" is barely there. Most of the time, you can't tell if you're winning or not. The control lacks so badly. On top of that, while food is funny, beating up food can be funny and some of the enemies were creative... this game just ends up looking stupid most of the time. Within five minutes of starting to play it, I had no desire to go further. And since then, I have never had the desire to pick it back up. Perhaps if the creativity was put into a game with better control and mechanics, this would be a favorite of mine. Instead, it ends up being one of my least favorite Lynx releases.

Oh, I get it...
Rotten tomato!
The ice boss.
Bag o' carrots.

I actually think the graphics are quite good. The sprites are colorful and large. It could have been a good game, but I find the controls lacking. You don't have a lot of moves and you have to line up 'exactly' face to face with the opponents to kick their ass. After a while it just gets frustrating....
