Black Belt 7-5-83


This prototype is a bit of a mystery.  Although it is clearly dated 7-5-83, it appears to be an earlier version of the game.  Why it's dated 7-5-83 is unknown, but it might be the date that it was copied or just a mistake.  Odd date aside, this version of the game is very similar to the 12-23-82 version, but in this version your player is always in the fighting stance and cannot leave the main room.  It is unknown if the other rooms even exist in this prototype.

Alan Murphy at his best!


You're always in your fighting stance in this version
