Punch-Out! marquee

Nintendo, 1984

Gameplay

One of my favorite games and on my top ten list, Punch-Out! is a boxing game played from a first-person perspective. You see yourself as a green-gridded boxer. Use the joystick to bob left and right and to put your hands high or low. The stick also controls whether you will throw a "body blow" or an "uppercut". I think my favorite part of the game is the sound effects. The voices are just great. Who can forget "Body blow! Body blow" and "Uppercut!"?


Acquisition

At my second Winston-Salem auction, I found this one in the LAST row. The top monitor had some problems (the top half of the monitor is wavy) and it was in the last row so I was HOPING I could get it cheap. I did -- $40! Everything works fine. The CP needs to be cleaned and new plexiglass put on it and the sideart is almost all there (dang kids peeled off the front quarter of each side). Great game and great buy.


Repairs

I bought a replacement top monitor from a friend for $25. I have yet to install that. I also need to replace the plexiglass on the control panel. Other than that, it's great. It'd be nice to find some replacement sideart, but I'm not holding my breath.
