After Mike Tyson was put away for rape, Mike Tyson's Punch Out!! was rereleased as Punch Out!! featuring Mr. Dream. I'm sure there are lengthy articles on the internet about whether Little Mac fighting Mike Tyson is canon or not.
Just bought for $.30. I've been playing this game for over 20 years but I've never gotten that far and now that I have it on Wii U and can easily play it both on TV and in bed, I'm going to finally take it down. I'd prefer to face Mike Tyson over Mr. Dream, but what are you gonna do.
After I'm done, I have Super Punch Out! and Punch Out! Wii, neither of which I've touched at all, ready to go.
No, and I don't either...but this is a game I absolutely couldn't beat without them today. When I was ten and had all kinds of free time, sure. Heck, I beat Final Fantasy (NES) with four White Mages when I was twelve. I wouldn't have that kind of patience today.
So yeah...I'll just save state after fights if I have to, but I try not to abuse it. Still, Nintendo built it in, so it's not like I'm cheating ala Game Genie or something like that.
You get three continues, and the game keeps track of those continues via password. And yeah, it gives you a password every time you complete a circuit.
You can just reuse the passcodes. I used to have both the final circuit and Tyson's code memorized, but not anymore.
Name Code Major Circuit 005 737 5423 World Circuit 777 807 3454 Super Macho Man 940 861 8538 Mike Tyson/Mr. Dream 007 373 5963 Another World Circuit 135 792 4680 Busy signal 800 422 2602 Nintendo's old customer service number! See the credits 106 113 0120 Hold Select button and press A button+B button after entering the code.
Oh I know you can re-use passwords, it was more of a "if I used a continue in this circuit then finished it, the password would change to reflect my record and how many continues I had left" type thing.
I'll probably end up buying this since it's only 30 cents. I already own the Mike Tyson cart and have it on Wii VC. But for 30 cents I think it's worth it for the save states. I can handle Piston Honda, it's that Soda Popinski that gives me trouble and I'm tired of fighting Honda just to get to Soda Popinski every time I lose to him.
