“If you know the enemy and yourself, you need not fear the outcome of hundreds of battles. If you know yourself, but not the enemy, for every victory you gain, you will also suffer defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” —Sun Tzu, The Art of War.

9 Monkeys of Shaolin marks the rebirth of the iconic beat em up genre in the spirit of old-school video games.
