Frank Bruno's Boxing
Copyright/Publisher: Elite Software, Release Year: 1985,
Genre: Boxing, Number Of Players: 1 or 2

Any comeback by this oldie is a bit dubious. Based on (but not an official licence) the ancient Punch Out coin-op, this has eight computer opponents with vastly different fighting styles - 'Fling Long Chop' even does kicks!

The action is viewed in 3-D, from just behind your boxer (Frank, of course!). There's no moving around the ring (never Bruno's strong point), just choosing from a selection of punches: left/right hooks, jabs, uppercuts and Frank's famous knockout punch.

Both boxers have a power bar which increases every time a blow is successfully landed: get hit and if decreases. When it reaches maximum you can use your knockout punch to deck the other guy - trouble is, he gets up the first two times.

The limited gameplay gets repetitive, while graphics are on the crude side with quite a bit of glitching on the large sprites. Not really a top contender any more, know what I mean, 'Arry?
