    Pencak Silat Martial Arts Game   Inspired by an ancient Indonesian martial art game, Pencak Silat is all about winning the International tournament.

You will have to press the arrow keys to move your character and space bar to make a combination of Pencak Silat attack moves to defeat your opponent.

    The plain 2D visuals in Pencak Silat may not appeal to many people, but the smooth animation for every attack move is perfectly executed. The background music is reminiscent of Southeast Asian classical music. Overall, the Pencak Silat is a nice martial arts-themed game.
