Punch-Out!! Style Boxing Game Prizefighters Hits Android
The classic boxing title Punch-Out!! has gotten a spiritual revival on Android courtesy of indie developer Koality Game’s superb new arcade style fighting game Prizefighters. This retro themed slugfest pits players against leagues of pixel art contenders in surprisingly strategic one-on-one bouts as they compete to rise up through the ranks and become the champ. Prizefighters manages to replicate Punch-Out!!’s control scheme on touchscreen rather well as players are able to swipe to dodge incoming punches and hit their opponents with high jabs, low jabs, and power punches just like in the beloved NES game. In addition to its nostalgic combat mechanics Prizefighters also puts its own spin on the genre with unlockable special abilities, upgradeable stats, and a meaty career mode where players build up their fighter from a fresh faced novice into a grizzled world champion. If you grew up on classics like Punch-Out!! you’ll have a blast with this nostalgic arcade fighting game.
