George Foreman's KO Boxing
is a boxing
video game produced by Acclaim
. The games was released in 1992 for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis
and other 16-bit
gaming consoles such as the Super Nintendo
that features retired multiple heavyweight champion and inventor of the Foreman grill
, George Foreman
. The game was also later available on the 8-bit Sega Master System
, and virtually identical Sega Game Gear
version, due to the similarity of the hardware architecture.
In the 16-bit versions, the player takes a generic boxer and must go on to defeat other generic boxers in the game in order to take on George Foreman in a 12-round boxing match featuring toe-to-toe action. Instant replays
of every knockout provide a realistic pay-per-view
look to the action that is going on in the screen. The game uses various camera angles for added realism.
In the 8-bit versions, the player character is George Foreman himself, and "powers up" before each match against increasingly difficult fighters. Unlike the 16-bit versions, the game is only side view action.
