Game modes

In Kung-Fu High Impact the fun never ends! The Kung-Fu master inside you will always find new challenges to face.

The main game mode is the "Story" mode. In this mode you are the protagonist (that is, the hero) of a comic strip that will follow you through 15 chapters full of excitement and battles! You can select the level of difficulty and indicate your sex. At the beginning of each chapter you will pose, following the game hints, to see your image inserted into the comic strip that narrates your story!

The battles you will face in Kung-Fu High Impact are virtually infinite, thanks to the "Custom Fight" mode. You can choose your enemies as well as the battleground to test your abilities in challenges in which the only limit is your own power. How many enemy waves will you be able to defeat before you succumb?

Special moves

In Kung-Fu High Impact the hero is you! Thanks to Kinect technology you will be transported into a spectacular, comic-book style world full of dangers and enemies to challenge with Kung-Fu moves.

The punches, hits and kicks you perform in reality will be copied by your image inside the game world, giving life to the most spectacular fights you've ever had! Hitting your target with consecutive attacks creates incredible combos that will have a devastating effect on your enemies. But don't forget that a Kung-Fu master also knows when it's the right time for defense. So keep your eyes open to block your adversary's attacks too!

All of the real Kung-Fu masters you admire also have secret weapons: incredible punches that take their adversaries by surprise, special moves that can suddenly change the outcome of a battle, superhuman abilities with devastating effects! In Kung-Fu High Impact you will discover you have special powers you never imagined you had. After all you are the hero of the game!

As your adventure unfolds you will unlock your new powers, but be careful when you use them. They consume your precious Chi energy. This takes a long time and a lot of hits to your enemies to regenerate. Here are some of the special powers most exercised in Kung-Fu gyms:

Power Punch
A "double" punch, done with both fists. Useful for fast attacks, capable of reaching the most distant enemies.

If you jump and as you land you hit the ground with your fist what will happen? Easy, you will cause an earthquake that will surprise any circling enemies!

Time Stop
Do you have too many enemies around you? The best solution is to slow down time to deal with them as you like!

What's better than a well placed lightning bolt to block the most insistent enemy attacks, or to eliminate distant enemies?

Magic Bow
Some Kung-Fu masters have an answer to the question above: to eliminate enemies far away there's nothing better than a powerful magic bow.

In Kung-Fu High Impact the hero is you: will you be able to master your new special powers?

The technology behind the game

In Kung-Fu High Impact, thanks to Kinect technology, you are projected directly into the game world, ready to do battle with Kung-Fu moves!

Kung-Fu High Impact takes full advantage of the possibilities offered by Kinect and emphasizes both its incredible sophistication as well as its simplicity of use: you only have to turn on the console, place yourself in front of Kinect and start to play without worrying about lighting or friends standing beside you making competing moves or even how you are dressed (obviously, we recommend everyone wear clothing appropriate for an expert master of the noble art of Kung-Fu).

In Fact, Kinect technology can perfectly recognize a player’s body, optimally reproducing it inside the game without interference from your surroundings (your living room or your own personal Kung-Fu gym): the structure of your body and your own silhouette are scanned and rendered on screen in real time, integrated naturally inside the game world. In Kung-Fu High Impact you will have full freedom of movement, and you will be able to do battle in any style you prefer!

If you find yourself in trouble, you can use your secret weapon...or weapons! Thanks to Kinect technology, you can use any object you have on hand as a weapon inside the game! Your favorite book could become the perfect secret weapon. Or even a handbag! Hitting your enemies repeatedly with… an umbrella can be highly amusing. Just try it and see! What other weapons can you invent? Prepare to fight!

Play in your own style: become an expert hero of Kung-Fu!

Unleash the Kung-Fu master inside you. Your moment has arrived!

In Kung-Fu High Impact the hero really is you, thanks to Kinect technology. Your own image is even projected into the game world to challenge first hand all types of enemies and danger in a fantastic adventure that is half comic book, half cartoon! Are you ready to show your friends that, for you, Kung-Fu is no mystery? Whatever your answer, keep your guard up!

In Kung-Fu High Impact fighting is intuitive because every Kung-Fu move you make in reality – even the most extreme – is immediately replicated inside the game: make a fist, extend your arm and watch your enemy be blown away by the force of your impact! But that’s not all! If you love devastation, this is the game for you. In reality you probably aren’t able to jump as high as a building or make the earth shake… but in Kung-Fu High Impact you can! It’s up to you alone to discover how the adventure unfolds and to unlock a series of incredible special powers (and show them off to your friends).

Every battle in Kung-Fu High Impact, from beginning to end, has only one protagonist – you! At the beginning of each level you need to strike a pose and make a face (following the game hints) to have your picture taken. These pictures get inserted in a comic strip in 2.5 D (two and a half dimensions!) that narrates the unfolding adventure, putting you literally at the center of the action. So get serious and unleash the Kung-Fu power inside you (remember that all true Kung-Fu masters want to look good in pictures too!).

You have to show you have style, your own style. Will you be a fearsome fighter in slippers and pajamas? Will you face your enemies with a black belt (or purple or red, or even white)? Will you do battle with ease in a more casual style? It’s your choice. You are the true hero of Kung-Fu High Impact!

post scriptum: Kung-Fu High Impact technology can make you extremely fit - just by playing a videogame. Any resulting six packs are unintentional.
