Karate Champ - Player Vs Player

Not working

Original Data East Karate Champ arcade game circuit board. This board does not work, it doesn't do much on power-up.  We did test the bottom board in a working set and that one is working so the issue is with the top board.  We did notice some signs of rust / oxidation on the IC legs on the top board. We suspect they will need to be cleaned up a bit and possibly some sockets replaced, but we don't think this board is a lost cause. Should be repairable given some time and effort.

Sold as-is, needing repairing.

Karate Champ

Karate Champ was one of the earliest karate games released. The game was released as both a one player versus computer version and a head on head version. Each player uses two joysticks to control the movement and karate moves performed. As rounds are won the player advances through a series of tournaments. The two-player game is one of a few with four joysticks (two joysticks per player).
