Kung Fu Kid, known as Makai Retsuden (魔界列伝) in Japan, is a beat-'em-up action game developed and published by Sega for the Sega Master System. It is a sequel to the SG-1000 game Dragon Wang, in which the player reprises the role of Wang, a kung fu master.

In Brazil this game was re-released as Sapo Xulé O Mestre do Kung Fu in 1995, complete with graphical changes.

Story

The young kung fu master Wang must defeat the evil Madanda and his henchman Kyong Shi to avenge the death of his master, Tayron.

Gameplay

The game is a beat-'em-up. The goal is to make it to the end of each stage, where a boss fight awaits. Enemies continually pour in to challenge Wang. Wang moves with Left and Right and crouches with Down. He jumps with 1; he jumps higher the longer the button is held. He can jump off walls by pressing 1 again after touching the wall. Wang attacks by kicking with 2. He can do a sweep kick with Down+2 or kick in mid-air by pressing 2 after jumping. He can also collect talismans that appear in the air and throw them at enemies with Up+2.

Wang has a life meter that goes down as he takes damage from foes. He loses a life if he loses his entire life meter, and the game ends if he runs out of lives. The player gains an extra life for earning 30,000 points and another for every 1,200 points earned after that. Each stage is timed, and the player also loses a life if time runs out.
