Last weekend I did a review of the game Super Mario Land 2. I enjoyed doing it so I want to start now a series of journals talking about videogames. Today I want to tal about a videogame from the NES, Punch-Out!!
Punch-Out!! Is a boxing sports videogame released on NES in 1987. It’s the first videogame from the series published in a home console. At first, Nintendo reached an agreement with the heavyweight champion Mike Tyson to promote the game. The game was called Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!! And the champion was the final boss on the game, but after an incident, Nintendo broke the deal and in did other version without him.
(The Tyson’s challenge was the principal attraction of the game)
The plot of the game is simple. You’re a boxer called Little Mac who wants to be the World Champion, so he has to face a series of strange stereotyped boxers from different countries around the world in order to reach the top. How the name says, Little Mac is small, his opponents are usually taller and stronger than him, but they have always a weak point, the counter attacks! When Mac faces someone he need to see and anticipate to the attack of his rival, dodging it and later punching it. Maybe you can be weaker than you opponent but you’re cleverer and faster!
(Here you can see the colossal size of you oponnents XD)
Now I’m going to start talking about one of the greatest facts of the game, your rivals. How I say before, they are a lot stereotyped. I will explain. The first boxer that you faces is Glass Joe, he is from France and he is the weakest boxer in the game and the tutorial”. He has only 1 victory and 99 defeats in all his career of boxer (and he is 38 years old). His name is a word game of Glass Jaw. The second boxer is Von Kaiser, from Germany. He isn’t as weak as Joe but is still easy to win. He is like a German old soldier (has 48 years old), with a huge mustache (which shake when he is going to puch you XD). Later comes Piston Honda, a huge Japanese boxer who can be the first challenge; the next is Don Flamenco, the Spanish boxer, who on the biggining of the fight hold a rose on his mouth and dance sevillanas XD; and also more boxers like an Indian magician and huge Russian who drinks Vozka on the middle of the battle X) .
When you defeat all your rivals, you have the opportunity of challenge Mike Tyson (or Mr.Dream in the later version). This is the hardest battle of the game. Tyson has a ridiculous dismal power. He is very fast, has a huge resistance, and with a few punches he can make you sleep on the floor, meanwhile you need around to 50 punches to knock him one time, and he gets up so easily. You won’t beat him if you don’t try the fight a lot of times, believe me!
(You will beat him?)
At last I want to say that it is a funny challenging game. I didn’t complete it yet, Soda Popinski, (the Russian boxer), beats me over an over (T.T). But I can say that it is a good game, it’s very addictive and has a good music. If you want an easy game to kill the time, this is not for you, but if you like fighting games and you want a challenge you must try it. I give him
This is all for today, if you want to say me an recommendation, write below in the comment box, see you!!!
