Whether you faced Mr. Dream or Mike Tyson himself, Punch Out for the original Nintendo Entertainment System remains one of the most memorable games of the time. Released in 1987, you control Little Mac, a 17-year-old kid from the Bronx who “loves nothing better than a tough challenge” (according to the instruction manual). Well, a tough challenge is exactly what you get if you’ve played this game. I’m certain I never made it much further than Bald Bull – and perhaps that’s the reason I stopped drawing Punch Out characters after that (or maybe I just really love my 3×3 grid and I don’t want to change my template!). The subsequent sequels weren’t any easier. While I enjoyed Super Punch Out and my short time with Punch-Out!! on the Wii, I think I was most thrilled to see Little Mac finally join the fight when he appeared in Super Smash Bros 4 for the 3DS/Wii U in 2014. Truly, I think the Smash series should act as an homage to the great characters of video game history, and Little Mac has certainly earned his place amongst the other competitors. Anyway, I’ve rambled on long enough. Please enjoy my Punch Out-themed crayon art for the week!
