Another title I'm just now digging into, Kick Master haunts used game stores all over America. Most will probably dismiss it because of the generic title, but new player will undoubtedly discover much depth and adventure with Kick Master. From Issue 28 of Nintendo Power (1991), enjoy these awesome scans! They covered quite a few levels, and nothing compares to the Nintendo Power strategy guides.
Kick Master starts like any other platformer, but an experience system which increases your available combat moves, rocking music, and jaw=dropping boss fights separates this one from the pack.
