This is one great mod! Some of us probably have seen the previews already on Facebook but now it' completed, you can get it and play it.

Many people should know that I did similar things in the past so I must generally like mods and have some
experience with them. Yes, I like mods ;) and I can assure you, this one must have involved a lot of work and talent.

I've also seen on Facebook guys talking about "nostalgia", that they don't want any other Bruce Lee than the one that they
remember. I can understand this attitude but personally I prefer being open to a new experience. So if you didn't get frozen in an icecube
in 1984, go and check it :)

Thanks. The new Bruce sprite is a nice addition. Id like to like the new music, tiny tiles and heart bubles in ladders. The yamo's kick is really broken and confusing. His long noise looks like strange to me.
I would prefer new maps and gameplay all with the original graphics except Bruce and new characters.

This is great! It almost reminds if the Americana re-release was an updated version, kind of like the Sorcery+ re-release where the game received graphical updates.

I don't mean to scorn Allan's efforts, but I still prefer the simpler, cleaner look of the original. The new last enemy in particular looks funny to me, and the absence of the final screen with Bruce standing at the exit looking at the green mountains outside is a big minus in my book.

You mean the big boss sprite?
Yes, I don't like him much in new version too. While everything else is an improvement, here we have a step back.
I recall reading, probably in Facebook, that the author wasn't really happy with him too.
