This one is sort of weird. There’s a straight port of Mike Tyson’s Punch Out available for Windows Phones. It’s called Punch Out of course and it’s not a game similar to the classic NES game – it’s the same. Same characters and even the cheat codes work. Intriguing on one hand and makes you wonder how it passed certification, right? There’s an iOS game that’s a remake on the classic and that’s fair game I think. But this one crosses the line, no? What do you think? By the way, it’s $2.50, no trial and people are complaining about the controls and lack of sound.

What do you think about this? Should it be in Marketplace? Are you just happy to see a classic?

Here’s the download link.

  1. Yes, why not? As long as they clearly state it is the same game. $.99 with free trial is more appropriate and they need to fix the issues. A single app that is a collection of popular NES classics would be cool.

  2. I like it even as flawed as it is. Its not mike Tyson but the original punch out. Grabbed it up quick cause I don’t know how its even available in mktplce. The download size has me curious though

    Isn’t the original Mike Tyson’s Punch Out? Then after he went to jail, Nintendo reissued the game without Tyson?
