My childhood friend had this game and we played it quite a bit.
The gameplay is very simple: collect idol statues and defeat your enemies. This game has some incredible music! Stay on the opening screen for a while to listen to the whole thing. It’s not some short little loop, it’s actually a full song. The graphics are pretty good, too, with a unique background rendered on each screen.
In addition to punches and kicks, we have shuriken to add some range attacks, and a sword, which is very powerful but leaves you a bit at risk.
As you get closer and closer to the room where the last idol is stored, the enemies tend to increase, with five enemies to contend with on the last screen. If you defeat them, grab the last idol and return to the main screen. Winner!
