Bruce Lee fans will immediately recognize the iconic yellow and black tracksuit as worn by the master martial artists and actor in his final film Game of Death. You could also bear in mind it from the several tributes such as Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, Revenge of the Nerds, Shaolin Soccer and numerous other locations (as referenced in the substantial sub-section on wiki). Now you can pretend to be the legend when you don a Bruce Lee Men’s Bathrobe. It has Bruce Lee’s signature flying kick on the back, along with the words “Jeet Kune Do” which is Bruce’s martial arts style, and of course it’s in the yellow and black colors. Put on it to function!
As the 70th birthday of the martial-arts hero and movie celebrity of all time, Bruce Lee is approaching, his fans and admirers are seen getting indulged in a unique celebration of the great day and it is the immense love of people for him only that Enterbay has been inspired …
Remote controlled robots are pretty cool, but what about a robot controlled by a giant Madagascar hissing cockroach? It might seem cruel, but maybe the roach is having the time of its life with a giant robot to control. It’s mounted at the top of the robot, and runs around on a ping-pong ball, functioning very much like a trackball, and there is an array of lights in front of it that will illuminate to indicate upcoming obstacles, which should tickle the roach’s natural aversion to light and make it move away. Check out the video after the jump, and let us know if you feel it’s creepy.

I have been hooked to the fighting games genre since the first time I inserted a quarter in a coin-op machine. Since then, I simply cannot recall how many days I spent playing games such as Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and Dead or Alive. Most gamers will agree with the fact that one of the key ingredients to enjoy a beat’em up at its fullest is a good joystick/gamepad, so reproducing the full experience on the iPad seems like a real challenge – at least at first. With Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior HD , Digital Legends Entertainment was up to the task, and managed to make an amazing looking, fun to play fighting game. Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior HD is by far one of the best Bruce Lee game ever made, and certainly the best fighting game for the iPad as of now. The game takes place in the 50’s, and has you fight through a variety of martial arts masters, gang members and thugs that were notorious at the time. At the beginning of your journey, your character is limited to basic moves such as punch and kick, but as you progress, additional moves will be offered to you, as well as more playable characters. Each character has its own specialty, such as Kung Fu, Karate or Thai Boxing. The fighters’ moves are extremely realistic, fast and very smooth. The game looks amazing, and features shader effects, dynamic shadows, dynamic backgrounds and dynamic camera angles – when compared to a game console, the quality of the graphics is somewhere between what a Playstation 2 and a Playstation 3 can do. Impressive. The implementation of the controls is where the game falls a bit short. While very responsive and well designed, the use of the touch screen forced Digital Legends Entertainment to simplify the controls, and besides the virtual pad that allows you to move your character around the screen, the game only provides one punch and one kick buttons. Not the best setup for the fighting games aficionados out there, but the developer presumably decided to keep things simple, as more buttons may have made the game impossible to play on a touch screen. One last grief: you cannot jump, at least not without having to invoke a kick combo for instance. Note that Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior HD features a decent combo system that helps compensate for these limitations, but still, we are far from what a Super Street Fighter IV can offer. The soundtrack is pretty good, with some nice sound effects, Bruce Lee yells and screams exactly like in the movies. We noticed a couple bugs here and there, but nothing major. We were much more bugged by the fact that the game does not offer a multiplayer mode, a feature that the developer will hopefully provide via an update. What we liked: The game is fun to play, and will keep you hooked for 10+ hours. The graphics look great, the 3D engine is impressive, and overall the game is very fast yet smooth. Lots of action for the money. What we didn’t like: The gameplay needs some improvement. The addition of basic moves such as jump, as well as the addition of a multiplayer mode would make this game a 5 stars game. To buy or not to buy: Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior HD is simply the best fighting game available for the iPad, as of today. Overall, and besides a couple shortcomings, the game is a blast.
