Game Overview

The time has come for you to prove that you are the toughest man in the world by entering the Toughman Contest. The game is based on the real contest. This will not be easy, as you must face 24 toughmen from around the world, each with his own set of unique skills.

If you're good enough and you make it to the end. You may even face the two-time Toughman and oversized butterball, Butterbean. Pick from three fighting modes: Exhibition Fight, fighting through the entire Toughman Contest or compete in a tournament among your friends in the Custom Tournament. You can fight against the computer or go head-to-head against a friend. You can even travel around the world and fight in four different venues against the other Toughmen.

The Toughman Boxing Contest features great animations of boxers fighting. You can choose from 15 custom Power Punches such as the Popeye Punch, the Haymaker and the Super Hook. In connection with the punches, you can pull up a special knockout animation if you can knock your opponent out of the ring or if you knock him straight up and he lands on his head.

This hard-hitting boxing game can take up to eight players. If you're having a hard time working your way up through the tournaments, you may have to practice some more. Take some time off and practice your offenses and defenses in the gym.

This is one punch-fest that many gamers will enjoy playing. Who's the man?

Here's a game that will knock you out of the ring, literally. Toughman Boxing is not your ordinary boxing match--anything can happen in the ring.

As you begin, you must pick which region you want to fight in. Then pick from the 24 characters the game has to offer. Each fighter has different fighting attributes, three special punches that he can use anytime during the match and a unique fighting style. If you're not happy with the special punches your character has, you can change the punches by picking from the 15 special punches.

The region that you pick determines where you will fight, as there are five unique arenas built into the game. Each has different sized crowds, sound effects and noticeable animations taking place in the backgrounds.

Of course, there will be ring girls showing which round it is.

Now the dirty work comes into play: Offensive and defensive moves are crucial to the game. There are three regular punches: jabs, hooks and uppercuts. These are basic punches, but still have to be mastered to defeat your opponents. You must use them wisely in attacking your opponent. If you miss or mistime your punch, your opponent can do twice the damage to you! Every dodge, punch and jab will determine the outcome of the match. There are special punches ranging from the Popeye Punch to the Windmill Wind-Up. There are a total of 14 special punches. These are the most damaging punches if they are used in combination with other punches. The more combinations you create the more damage you inflict. Each special punch needs precise timing. If not, your opponent may end up doing the damage to you.

Defense is essential also. Blocking, dodging and ducking are your best defenses. Be patient with your punches. When you find the opening or weakness of your opponent, that's when you let him have it.

There are three ways to win the Toughman Contest: the KO, TKO and the Decision. At the end of a fight (if it does go to the decision), the judges will post their scores for the three rounds you fought. The scoring is based on the "10-point must" system, the winner in each round receiving up to 10 points. The points are determined by your boxing performance in each round. The way things work: The more points you score, the more likely you will win the match. After defeating your opponent, you move on to the next fighter who is stronger and more skilled.

Just keep practicing your punches and you'll eventually reach the top to become the toughest man around.
