Kung Fu Kid, known in Japan as Makai Retsuden (魔界列伝?), is a Sega Master System video game about a kid that has knowledge of kung fu (including the fascinating art of wall jumping). This action game tests his skills as he defeats terrible enemies in order to save the day.

Reception[edit]

Computer Gaming World criticized Kung Fu Kid's "incredibly contrived play-mechanics" (including a lobster that would give the player extra powers) and the "tiny and cartoon-like" graphics, and mocked the Engrish documentation that stated that the player would fight "the unnaturally evil one".[1]
