Game Details

Arm Wrestling used TWO monitors, much the same way that Nintendo's Punch Out did. At one point, a villian would appear in the top monitor, and try to throw down a money bag at you in the lower monitor. You can pull the joystick away from the console for special actions.

"Bald Bull" makes an appearance as a masked character (you pull on the joystick to pull his mask off at the end of the match).

***** by donkeykong. Comment: "This game is great. TIMING is the key, not fast button bashing. Got as high as round 8. " 2003-07-01 21:37:43Z

***** by Chuckernut. Comment: "Very innovative game for the time. I got a kick out of seeing peoples faces when I'd face Alice and Ape III. They were all like "What the hell is that!"" 2003-11-09 15:31:01Z

***** by sodapopinski. Comment: "a deceptively difficult game. My dorm mates and I would spend hours (and lots of quarters) trying to beat that robot ape. In the vein of punch out but much more bizarre and much more Japanese in concept and feel. Had a great sound while wrestling. The announcer would say "LEKBO! LEKBO! LEKBO!" I can still hear it in my head." 2006-01-02 10:26:12Z
