Mike Tyson's Punchout

   I can't believe that I am this far into my blog and I completely forgot about Mike Tyson's Punchout! What the heck was I thinking? Someone should slap me!

   Just kidding, although, MTPO is a freaking fantastic game and definitely one of the classics. It was almost impossible to beat without the use of a game genie.I am proud to report that I have managed to beat it without having to cheat! Your character (Little Mac), had to fight his way through several opponents that got progressively more difficult until you reached the end where you got to fight Mike Tyson. All of the characters had their own special moves that became more intricate as the game carried on, except for Tyson who just flat out pounded you in the final fight.



   The game was widely popular when it was released, however, Mike Tyson's personal indiscretions forced Nintendo to drop him as the sponsor and delete his character. Mike Tyson's Punch Out was changed to Punch Out! Featuring Mr. Dream, it was exact same game but with a different final character to beat, and yet, this was a far inferior version than it's predecessor. 

Other Punch-Out! games were made for later version Nintendo systems (like the SNES), but they weren't nearly as popular as the original.

  1. Ah, the good old days. Throwing a video game controller across the room has never been more justifiable. If you haven't guessed by now, I never beat Tyson, lol.

  2. One of those games I beat when I was younger that I probably couldn't beat today. My twitch reflexes just aren't what they once were. I keep thinking I should get the Wii Punch-Out game, but I always find that there are other things I need to spend money on.
