Karateka Classic bringing original game to mobile May 16

Karateka Classic, an iOS and Android port of Jordan Mechner's first published game, is headed to mobile devices this Thursday, May 16.

The $0.99 game includes the pixelated throwback version of Karateka, which was originally released for Apple II computers in 1984. Mechner, who would later create Prince of Persia, developed the side-scrolling Karateka while he was a student at Yale.

Last year, Liquid Entertainment brought a Karateka remake to Steam, Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and iOS. For more on the game and the remake, be sure to read Polygon's interview with its creator.
