Retro Game Weekend: Punch-out!! (NES 1990)

220px-punch-out_mrdream_boxartSo, this weekend me and my boyfriend played Punch-out!! We thought we would see if we could be able to beat Mike Tyson. However, what we didn’t realized before we went up against the last opponent, was that the version we played didn’t have Tyson to begin with. We faced Mr. Dream, the sprite that they had edited in there instead of Tyson when the license to use him expired (and they didn’t wanna renew).

So this is Mr. Dream, apparently…

The game is rather cool, with a nice difficulty (when you figure it out) and fun sprites. It really takes a little while to get the hang on how to beat each opponent, they all have their own little hints and kinks to take down. It’s just a matter of knock down or be knocked down. A few of the opponents gave us quite a challenge. Mr. Sandman and Bald Bull #2 must have been the hardest, though Mr. Sandman is the harder of the two. I should count Mike Tyson/Mr. Dream into this as well as we barely landed any hits, let alone took him down. We didn’t try for to long, but damn he was hard.

Overall it is a game worth playing and a perfect weekend challenge. If you haven’t tried it already, you really should.
