It's a classic. No two ways about it. We all loved taking control of perennial underdog Little Mac and pounding our way past Glass Joe, King Hippo, Bald Bull, and the rest. Whether you faced Mr. Dream or Mike Tyson, you knew that final fight was going to be one of the toughest challenges a video game could offer up.





Then some punk had to come along and do it all blindfolded...




Way to make us all look like fools... jerk.

Let me share you a little secret of my very own... I could never get past Glass Joe. I played the game like three times but I couldn't figure out anything about it (I also suq bigtime at Super Mario 2).

Well, I'm sure given enough time and attempts, you would have made it well past Glass Joe. But that was the thing about Punch Out. It required a tremendous amount of patience and time to advance. Learning each fighter's behavior and then what moves were most effective against them.

You are probably right, but the thing with most NES games -for me, at least- is that I can't "get used" to them... to me it's: I either get them right away or I die trying

I remember when they parodied Punch Out in a Simpsons episode.

Just a few days ago, a man discovered an easter egg in Mike Tyson's Punch Out that has been hidden for decades. There have been other visual cues discovered over the years, but people are STILL discovering them even today. Crazy!
