Punch-Out!! 01

He's going to feel that tomorrow morning

Most gamers born in the 80s have fond memories of a classic Nintendo title called Punch-Out!! – a game in which you go head-to-head with a series of cartoon boxers, until Mike Tyson himself bashes your face in and puts an end to your virtual boxing dreams.

2009’s Punch-Out!! for the Wii and WiiU introduces the new generation of gamers to the franchise. You play as Little Mac once again, an unassuming boxer working his way to the top of a professional boxing circuit. Every opponent you’ll face boasts a particular style; your job is to figure out their vulnerabilities, identify openings and weak spots, and strike when the opportunity to tear them a new one presents itself. Slug them at exactly the right time and place, and you’ll stagger them and gain a star. Stars can then be used to perform a devastating Star Punch.

This arcade boxer will text your reflexes, timing, and observations skills, as well as provide a welcome nostalgia trip to older gamers. Definitely one of the best boxing games you can play!
