A downloadable game



This is an unofficial "continuation" of the classic C64 platform beat'em up Bruce Lee originally published in 1984 by DataSoft, Inc.


35 years later - the Evil Emperor has again risen to power. Only one man can save the day, and we all know who. Bruce's long-time foes, the green Yamo and the black Ninja has been recruited once more, and they are as always hell-bent on foiling any progress Bruce might make in his attempt to overthrow the Evil Emperor.

Was the original 1984 game removed from the Duology?  I've downloaded it from three different sites but they all go straight into ROF+.  The menu shown above that allows you to pick which game you want doesn't seem to exist in the version I'm running.  Is there some trick to it?

Hi BiceBob. Very strange. Nothing was removed, but just to be sure I downloaded it myself from here and tested it.

"Bruce Lee Classic 3p" is the original game, albeit with an optional 3 player option. Maybe that caused some confusion. Hope that helps!

Thank you for freely sharing your work. Bruce Lee was my favorite C64 game growing up. It's great to have a bug-fixed version of it now, as well as Return Of Fury!

Thank you for the kind comments! Happy Bruced-Up holidays :)


Happy Bruced-Up holidays to you as well!


Such great work!  Thank you for taking the time to create so much fun for the rest of us.  I echo Runstop73's comments.

Thank you cbernard! The game has been on my mind since, 1985 I think it was, and I'm proud to carry the torch :)


I can't see a download. Did you remove it or is it somewhere else?

Hi! Sorry, I have no idea what happened here. Anyway, it has been re-instated. The zip contains a CRT and a D64 file. Let me know what you think! Thanks.


I will as soon as I find a Vice copy to play it on. Kind of stumped atm as I'm running Linux off a livedvd.

Did you get it working? Crossing fingers.


Just here to say thanks for this awesome game and the wonderfull load screen! I could not believe when i read about this new Bruce Lee game. I love that it has the same gameplay as the original.  I played it on my C64 a few times, works great. Thanks again!! 

Thanks Runstop73. This old digital heart warms up hearing you enjoyed it!


True labour of love... I love it.. and great to have a stable OG Bruce Lee bundled in a crt format.. 10/10


Thanks Hayesmaker, really appreciated!

Really great work, thank you!!

I've tried the .crt version on a C64 Mini.

For the player selection to work in Bruce Classic where you need to either press F1, F3 or F5 I have made a .cjm file with the following content:

T:Bruce Lee Duology

Just copy/paste the above in a text-editor and save.

The filename needs to be the same as the .crt filename, just with .cjm as extension. Just make sure that there is no hidden extension, like e.g. .cjm.txt !

The .cjm file needs to be in the same directory as the .crt file.

On the Bruce classic selection screen you can now press the leftmost button for F1, the second button for F3 and the third button is F5.

Awesome! I added it as a download!

Files updated: Fixed a bug in Bruce Classic where lives suddenly went to 0. Fixed a bug in ROF+ where game froze if button hit in demo mode.

Disc version of B/L Classic wont load with a Jiffy kernal.

Hi! Only Classic, or any other file as well? Thank you for reporting. I updated the d64, hopefully it works better. Please confirm if you have the time.


Can confirm all files working again with Jiffy kernal. Thank you :)

Thank you, that takes a load off my shoulders :) Hope you enjoy it!
