I remember this one from my C64. Basically it's a Jump 'n Run with some fighting elements, although the name sounds more like a real Kung Fu-Game or something like that Bruce Lee is far from being that. You are very limited in the ways of fighting. Basically you are collecting some kind of lamps (?) that sometimes open doors and are running away and/or fighting that black ninja and the fat guy - the game is not bad, quite enjoyable, but pretty fast without a slowdown-program. Still playable though. My cousin and I used to play this a lot, well... as far as I remember the C64-version was a bit better.
One of the first semi-realistic side-scrollers for PC. MobyGames has the scoop on this martial arts classic: "Bruce Lee is a decent platform game with a lot of action thrown in. Reflexes are needed to pass certain sections, as is a lot of timing to jump past obstacles. You're pursued by two enemies, who unrelentlessly come after you, snapping at your heels. It's very fun for anyone who likes platform games. There is no "easy" mode to help novice gamers get used to the game. Also, fighting the enemies is relatively easy and just gets irritating after a while. Finally, Bruce Lee only runs at the correct speed on a 4.77MHz PC. Well, one more gripe, actually--you're Bruce Lee, yet you only have two moves, punching and a flying kick. A little disappointing from a master of martial arts. If you love platform games that require good reflexes and timing, Bruce Lee fits the bill."
The game also features a great range of movement and attacks that makes games such as Bushido simplistic in comparison.
