Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu, known in Japan as ジャッキー チェン [Jakki Chen] "Jackie Chan", is a platform beat-em-up developed by Now Production and published by Hudson Soft Company for the NES in 1990 and the TurboGrafx-16 in 1991. In the game, you play Jackie Chan who is trying to rescue his girlfriend.

I first heard about this game because it was a prize on a children's television game show, but I never saw it played until years later using an emulator. While the game looked good and seemed interesting, I first dismissed it as just another NES platformer. Years later, while looking for video game music to record, I played the game's NSF file and was impressed by the music. Wanting to know where in the game a particular song was played, I took to playing the game through and got to the third level. This was more than enough to demonstrate to me how enjoyable the game is, so I decided to play the game for real. On my second attempt, I was able to beat it.

I do not own the game, but I have beaten the NES version.
