Bruce Lee Lives: The Fall of Hong Kong Palace, known simply as Bruce Lee Lives, is a 1989 video game software developed and published by The Software Toolworks for MS-DOS-operated PCs. It stars the Jeet Kune Do founder and movie actor, Bruce Lee. The game included a biography book titled "Dragon's Tale: The Story of Bruce Lee", written by Bruce Lee's wife, Linda.



The game's plot takes place at the Hong Kong Palace, a peaceful place where martial artists practice in order to become professional warriors; however, a large group of thugs lead by a vile name Master Po came to start the destruction of Hong Kong Palace. This caused the citizens of Hong Kong Palace to cry for the help of a martial arts legend Bruce Lee to end the destruction of Hong Kong Palace by defeating Master Po and his henchmen to bring back peace to Hong Kong Palace.

The object of the game is to beat the required number of opponents: from Bruce Lee's students to Master Po's servants. After defeating them, the final battle against Master Po awaits. Unlike most fighting games back then and nowadays, Bruce Lee Lives features a special AI engine that changes the difficulty level by focusing on the player's actions. If the player overuses one move in order to beat an opponent, the AI engine will reduce the player's chance at beating the next opponent with the same moves used so often against the previous opponent. This leads the player to a challenge of beating opponents if they were controlled by the designers of the game, causing the opponents to identify the easiest ways to knock out Bruce Lee.
