The Way of the Exploding Fist is a martial-arts sparring game released for home computers in 1985. It was originally created for the Commodore 64, before being ported to other platforms.

The game consists of a series of one-on-one battles between two martial arts competitors, in a tournament style match. Unlike most other fighting games that use a health bar, the competitors score either a half-point or full point on each hit in the bout, before continuing to the next stage.
