Super Punch-Out!! Nintendo’s boxing video game was developed and published for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). It was released on September 14, 1994.
The gameplay for this game is near perfection. It has to be played and not described actually to understand how this game really plays. You would think the fights are similar each time because it is a SNES game, but each one is pretty unique. The fights are all unique in how your strategy has to change for each opponent. You never feel like you have just fought the same guy twice, or just a harder version of the same guy. Even the ones that look similar, like Bear Hugger and the clown guy.
Control is excellent, and the buttons are not hard to get used to. Your assortment of punches suits you well. As for difficulty, you are almost guaranteed to lose the first time you face an opponent in the World or Special Circuit. If you watch him for a few matches and learn all his combinations, he becomes easy. The trick is in seeing how quickly you can beat him. Some of the boxers, such as the bruiser Brothers, can still be somewhat tough even after learning their moves.
Additions to the character roster range from impressive to dismal. I like the intimidating, hulking Masked Muscle, and enjoy the privilege of cleaning the clock of the vain Narcis Prince. I would not say I like downright wimpy Piston Hurricane or the stale Heike Kagero. There are some gains and losses here, relative to the original. Some of the fighters are colorful and hilarious; others, putrid.
