Super Punch-Out!! (SNES)
Super Punch-Out!! (AKA スーパーパンチアウト!! in Japan) is a boxing game developed and published by Nintendo for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in 1994. In the game, you play the role of someone who wants to build a name for himself in the world of boxing. This game is the sequel to NES’ Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!
With a total of four circuits to go through, you begin from the Minor Circuit where you will beat 4 opponents that are pretty easy to defeat. Going through this circuit will give you a good idea about what tactics to employ in Super Punch-Out!!.
You will have to learn your opponents’ weaknesses in order to beat them. Learning how your individual opponents move is another way. Working out how opponents play their game is half of the game’s appeal. You can actually step back into the ring and play with the same guy over and over again until you knock him out without you getting a single punch from him.
Controls are excellent, but will require you a fair amount of time to fully master. The graphics are 16-bit delight, with colorful characters battling it out on the screen. The punches look great with some effects incorporated here and there. The sound aspect is something that you should forget. Some of the characters’ vocals are memorable and neat, but efforts for sound might just have been not enough.
Super Punch-Out!! is probably one of the most favorite boxing games but it would make such a great addition to your collection. It’s one of the rarest that you can find among collectors, so putting aside a fair size of your budget to have it is necessary.
But it’s not only about it being rare. Honestly, the game’s one of the jewels in the Super Nintendo period. It offers a good level of challenge and the difficulty curve that it has is something considered to be a gem in console boxing games.
Super Punch-Out!! has been ported to SNES (this version), Virtual Console and Super Nintendo Classic Mini.
