“I’m drawing the line at boxing werstle!” This is Bull Fight: Ring no Haja for PC Engine, a boxing game with incredibly bad controls, inscrutable game play, and a side quest that I didn’t even want to explore when I couldn’t master the boxing portion by itself. Mike Tyson’s Punch Out this is NOT.
This game could and should have done boxing so better, but the programmers were so lazy they didn’t even animate you being knocked down by your unstoppable opponent — they just cut away to black and then show you face down on the canvas — similar to how I felt after playing.
