Imo not directly comparable. 1 vs 1 fighter and a scrolling Brawler. Though i prefer Yie Ar Kung-Fu. Kung-Fu Master can be a bit repetitive after a few minutes.

never played the arcades of either, and dont think I played Kung Fu master at all.....maybe?

But Yie Ar Kung Fu game with my +3 Spectrum. Good times. Not just fighting my siblings, but laughing our heads off when mum and dad had a go.

Yie Ar Kung Fu was for many years my favourite game ever, kind of..
And it's the spiritual grand daddy of Street Fighter.

So it's a clear winner here for me.

(and I played the arcade version in a local store in 1985)

It's a tie for me...
though, I agree that they are not comparable (not same gender).

Played both version on my C64, and both had great gameplay, nice graphics and music with soundfx.

Played only Yie Ar Kung-Fu in arcades and have found memory of it. Later played it a lot on C64. I don't remember getting far in Kung-Fu Master mostly because I disliked repetition. Probably should revisit that game and try to complete it.

Even, those 2 games are quite different genre, I would still say Yie Ar Kung-Fu is far better game.

Vigilante was perhaps a better comparison - I think it is either the official (or spiritual) successor to KFM

Out of the choices, YAKF for me

That's a very different game, though..

Kung Fu Master is a far superior game.
