Description[edit | edit source]
Around 30 years after the publishing of the Kung-Fu action game Bruce Lee, a few programmers developed an unofficial follow-up called Bruce Lee II as a fan project.
In 2013, the programmer Bruno R. Marcos developed the game Bruce Lee II for PC (Windows and Linux) with a C64 and an Amstrad CPC graphic mode and sound from the original Bruce Lee game.
In April 2014, a conversion of Bruno's Bruce Lee II for the C64 was started by by Jonas Hultén. The C64 version was finished around a year later. It exists in several versions. The first release has the version number V.18. All other following releases have the version number V.19. The V.19 releases fixed bugs and other problems.
Also there are four versions of Bruce Lee II: for the floppys 1541 and 1581 as disk image D64 and D81, as image for the EasyFlash cartridge and for the Magic Desk cartridge.
Bruce's sister has been kidnapped by the evil sorcerer, Tao-Bao, and imprisoned in his massive palace. As Bruce infiltrates the large fortress, he will encounter numerous traps while constantly being targeted by Tao-Bao's henchmen.
In order to proceed deeper into Tao-Bao's lair, Bruce must collect lanterns and pull switches to open doors. Bruce can run, jump, climb, fight with punches and flying kicks, and swim to make his way through the numerous hazards and opponents that block his path.
Design[edit | edit source]
The action game Bruce Lee II features multicoloured 2D-graphics, and single screens that switch when crossing the screen borders.

Solution[edit | edit source]
- You start with 5 lives (falls) on normal difficulty, and 10 on easy. You can get more by collecting Yin/Yang symbols.
- You have to collect the lamps (lanterns or lampiongs) to progress.
- When collecting the lamps, ladders and platforms can appear, and gates and trapdoors can open, but obstacles and traps can also appear.
- There are many traps (swords, bombs, barrier, laser, etc.) to kill you, and four randomly appearing opponents: Dan, Kareem, Chuck, and the ninja from the first game. If any are killed with kicks and punches, they will reappear after a short time.
- You do not lose a life immediately from taking hits in combat.
- Opponents can also be killed by the traps. However, then there are no points.
- Traps are immediately fatal, attacks from your opponents are not.
- The game is finished if you reach the goal screen with Bruce's sister.
Cheats[edit | edit source]
The C64 conversion has an option for infinite lives integrated.
In the CSDb exists cracks with trainers.
