Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out! is one of the most iconic boxing games and was developed and published by Nintendo in 1987 for the Arcade and NES. It later made its way onto the Wii in 2007, as well as Nintendo 3DS in 2012, and Wii U in 2013.
In addition to being a classic icon, it is also one of the best-selling games of all time. Playing as a young up-and-coming boxer from the Bronx, your dream is defeat Mike Tyson himself. However, you’ve a got a long way to go before you can call yourself Champ. You have to punch your way through the leagues from Minor to World Circuit. The matches are governed by regular boxing rules with rounds lasting about 3 minutes a piece. In most of the fights you are somewhat at a disadvantage as opponents get much harder as you go along. Your moves include: left and right jabs and body shots; and an uppercut. You can also defend yourself by dodging side to side, ducking, or blocking. The opponents have rather unique personalities and require different fight strategies. Notoriously difficult, this game really tests your skills.
Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out! got excellent reviews when it was released and, as any fan will tell you, it’s still fun now. Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out! Is one of those games that I think everyone played at least once. If you didn’t, what’s wrong with you? You are seriously missing out. I gotta say, I am very excited about this game. I loved it as a kid and I never, ever beat it. I remember my dad did and my sister and I thought he was some kind of god. Got any fond childhood memories of this one? Tell us about it.
