Karate Champ's players each had two joysticks, by using a reference chart just below the moniter you could make combinations in joystick movement for various moves (i.e. up with left and right the right joystick would make a jumping head kick). Karate Champ was well ahead of its time.
Next to the more simplistic fun other machines had to offer in the early-mid eighties arcade scene, it became a footnote instead of the innovator Street Fighter's similiar gamplay would in time become.
