Kang Fu is the only video game developed and published by GREat Effects Development (GREED for short), released in 1996 for Amiga systems. It's a Platform Game in which you control a kangaroo named Klont who has to save little kangaroos from the bad guys across 10 levels.

The official website still exists, but it's so virus-ridden you shouldn't bother searching for it.


This game provides examples of:

  • Cool Shades: Klont always wears shades, which are especially meant to accentuate his coolness on the game box where he appears with a smug smile.
  • Game-Breaking Bug: Due to a memory leak in the CD32's boot sequence, the game will run out of memory and crash on start if you don't use the workaround in the manual.
  • GIS Syndrome: The game mostly uses compressed stock images for level backgrounds or background objects.

  • Goomba Stomp: Klont can jump on certain enemies to kill them.
  • Loads and Loads of Loading: It can literally take eight and a half minutes to load the game.
  • Never Trust a Title: Despite the title, Klont doesn't actually use any kung fu moves and instead uses a gun or other weapons. The closest the game ever gets to this trope is an Extendo Boxing Glove being among the weapons Klont uses.
  • Password Save: The game gives you a password to let you continue after the first and fifth level, though considering that the game has ten stages, it's not as useful as it could be).
  • Pun-Based Title: The title is a pun on both the martial art and the animal species name.
  • Video Game Cruelty Punishment: It is possible to shoot the baby kangaroos you're supposed to save, but doing so will deduct points from your score.
