Bruce Lee (atari 8 bit) 1983
First beat 'em up.
Earliest Magazine review- Electronic Games (1984)
1) On its original release, the ZX Spectrum version of Bruce Lee received enthusiastic reviews. Computer Gaming World stated that the game "delivers all the foot kicking, kick jabbing, quick ducking action-packed adventure you'd expect from a good grade B, martial arts movie"
2) Story - you're as Bruce Lee seeks secret of immortality and wealth in the wizard's fortress.
3) Beat 'em up is a video game genre featuring melee combat between the protagonist and an improbably large number of underpowered enemies. These games typically take place in urban settings and feature crime-fighting and revenge-based plots, though some games may employ historical or fantasy themes. Traditional beat 'em ups take place in scrolling, two-dimensional (2D) levels, though some later games feature more open three-dimensional (3D) environments with yet larger numbers of enemies.
