Many thanks for buying Karate - Way Of The Fist, really glad you like it!
To set your moves you first hold the button then press the direction. To remove a move, set the basic stance to that position. You need to clear a move this way before you can set a new move to a position already assigned. I maybe didn't explain it too clearly in the text file manual, sorry.
To block an attack, press up, to dodge, press down. The blocks are more of a 'functional' style rather than the flashy blocks seen in the movies.
Thanks for the comment about red text on black background - something I'll avoid in future games!
I've never been a fan of sport karate, I guess that's reflected in Karate - Way Of The Fist, but I loved the old 8-bit games as a kid so Furious Fighters is kind of a tribute to those games. I'm planning a tournament mode complete with tatami and rules for stepping off the mat (jogai). Hope you like the demo, there's still a long way to go, still adjusting the main character sprites I have now, as well as creating new characters.
