Karateka

Online version of Karateka for Commodore 64. Karateka is a 1984 computer game by Jordan Mechner, the creator of Prince of Persia. The game begins with an impressive graphic of the fortress of the evil Akuma. Akuma is holding the lovely Princess Mariko. The player must defeat the guards of the castle and must eventually face Akuma himself in order to rescue the princess. Mechner adeptly used character gestures and musical cues to evoke the game's immersive atmosphere. The animations nearly match the quality of the ones seen in Mechner's Prince of Persia five years later...

Commodore 64 Computer

Online emulated version of Karateka was originally developed for the Commodore 64 (also known as the C64 or the CBM 64), an 8-bit home computer introduced in January 1982 by Commodore International. Preceded by the Commodore VIC-20 and Commodore PET, the C64 took its name from its 64 kilobytes (65,536 bytes) of RAM. With support for multicolor sprites and a custom chip for waveform generation, the C64 could create superior visuals and audio compared to systems without such custom hardware. The C64 dominated the low-end computer market (except in the UK) for most of the 1980s.

The C64 uses an 8-bit MOS Technology 6510 microprocessor, 64 KB of 8-bit-wide dynamic RAM, 1 KB of 4-bit-wide static color RAM for text mode and 38 KB are available to built-in Commodore BASIC 2.0 on startup. The graphics chip, VIC-II, features 16 colors, eight hardware sprites per scanline (enabling up to 112 sprites per PAL screen), scrolling capabilities, and two bitmap graphics modes. The C64 has a resolution of 320×200 pixels, consisting of a 40×25 grid of 8×8 character blocks. The C64 has 255 predefined character blocks, called PETSCII.
