Yie Ar Kung-Fu II is an even better sequel to Yie Ar Kung-Fu, one of the first truly addictive beat 'em up games. In this second game, Konami adds plenty of new enemies, levels, and attacks, while making the game decidedly more difficult. Released in 1985, it's probably the first computer game that allows you to perform special moves, as well as features opponents with distinctive attacks (can someone please confirm this for me?). For example, Yen-Pei throws her pigtail at you, and Li-Jen makes thunder bolts fall from the sky. Instead of fighting opponents head-on (eight of them this time), you must first fight their little minions in each stage in standard 2D side-scrolling fashion.

If you like the first Yie Ar Kung-Fu (and there's no reason you wouldn't, if you are a fighting game fan), you'll probably enjoy this sequel. The high difficulty level dampens the enjoyment quite a lot for me, though, so be advised if you are reflex-impaired like me.

Note: the game was never ported for the PC officially, but enthusiasts have recompiled it to work in DOS anyway so look for that version.
