I'm in a nostalgic mood today, when I found an old arcade machine of Karate Champ:

After beating everyone to the 8th level and losing, I was thinking: Does this game ever end? Or this is a game like River Raid that never ends?

Based on the fact that people are still setting high scores on this game (exceeding a million points!), I don't believe it ever ends. You'll just keep facing the master over and over again until you fail.

Wow, never thought people were still setting high scores on this. – Machado Jan 16 '12 at 11:51

I'm pretty sure that Karate Champ VS never ends. I got to 10th DAN and kept fighting figher after fighter. The backgrounds changed but you keep facing a 10th DAN ranked fighter until you either lose or the arcade closes!

Great game, an all time favourite of mine.

Level 12 is the Final Dojo. I have never beaten level 12. When you beat Level 12, you start over at Level 1 again, and the game is much much harder.

Which version of the game are you referring ? I just went to level 9. – Machado Jan 28 '13 at 14:12
