Gibbage has just been added to the main Retro 247 site. Unless you've been living on a farm in Bulgaria you'll know all about this excellent deathmatch game. If you've never heard of it or played it before then go HERE and download the demo or buy the full version.
We did a review of the game many months ago which gives a lot more detail on the finer points of the game.

It's a remake of the classic Commodore 64 game Bruce Lee. Now, over time I've played a good few remakes of the original and none are as good as this one. You might disagree and your entitled to, but for me this is a great remake because as soon as I started the game I was teleported back to my youth, perched on the end of my friends bed playing Bruce Lee on his C64.
It's funny that even at 33 years of age I can think back so far and remember room layouts from the original game and even the timing of the moving electricity! This is a great remake which has the feel and charm of the original.
The game is for Windows and more info, screenshots and the download can be found at http://planetflibble.com/blitz/
