Punch Club is a cross between sports management and The Sims, packed together in the retro pixel-art style. The plot is based on the 1980s and 1990s action movie staples and is full of ironic references and quotes from them. You play as a young boxing prodigy whose father was murdered by a stranger. Your goal is to become a great sportsman and win a tournament, but also to investigate and avenge your father’s death. The player controls his character around the clock, making him exercise, eat, go to the job, buy food and other items, and interact with other characters.
Working out will improve the boxer’s main characteristics, such as strength and stamina, moving him towards his goal. But there are also essential Sims-like attributes like hunger and happiness that wear down during activities and need to be replenished. Money is also essential and can be earned by performing jobs and quests or by winning boxing matches. Before each fight, be it a match or an assault by a street gang, you choose a number of skills that the boxer will use this time. Completing quests will earn you favors from the other characters that will help you to advance the central plot and find the murderer.

Punch Club reviews and comments

Karate Kid 2.0 Punch Club is an indie title from the Developers LazyBearGames. This Game is just fantastic. Anyone who stands on pixel art and many Allusions from pop Culture and Films of the 90s should access here directly. For a "combat simulator," the Graphics are very nice to watch and are a little reminiscent of Hotline Miami. The Allusions are countless, ninja Turtles, Pulp Fiction, A-Team or even Double Dragon etc. In every Corner of the Game you can find Allusions to Movies or Games from the 80s 90s. The Dialogues are very funny and the Soundtrack is pointed Class. With each Win you get skill points and can distribute them to The round-sized Skilltree at will. Unfortunately, the Game quickly becomes monotonous: Train, eat, sleep, earn Money and occasionally take part in Competitions like the beginner League to meander up on the Courts. The Soundtrack also quickly becomes monotonous over time. These little Quirks don't stop this Game from playing through to the End, thus becoming the champion of the whole Nation. 8/10

Game bugged out on me. I lost the play-offs and am unable to restart them. All fights and side quests are done. This game has been available for a while now and game breaking bugs are unforgivable at this stage. Glitches after 110 days with 13,9,7 build.

Since I updated my iPad, I have the sound but no music, which I find a pity, because it is good, and actually reminds me of the retro games (Amstrad, nes ...) Can you correct please ? I'm still putting 5 canvases because addictive TRS game

Does not play well on the iPhone 4s game starts up slowly or not at all and if you are in the game then the screen is actually too small for this game .. Would have liked to know this before I bought it ... Free had been the best . On the PC this is a fun game. There are bugs in it that you cannot leave the buy menu in a shop. Interface is too large. Whether this will be improved or I want my money back.

It can not be that I have better stats than my opponent but he barks me off with ease each time because he gets + 4-8 energy every second but I only get plus 2 just as the man loses a good 20% of the workout every day gets extremely little money to eat what is most important mega expensive that just does not fit together well if man would not lose 20% a day from the training would be nice and the man can defeat the opponents more than 2 points less everywhere As I hope for quick fix otherwise I can only advise against buying the game
Five Word Review: Little too grindy, mostly fun.
Favorite Thing: I like the concept and the off-the-wall story and events.
Least Favorite Thing: It's grindy. Really, really grindy.

Date Completed: 2018-02-15
Playtime: 10h
Enjoyment: 7/10
Recommendation: If you don't mind a little (or a lot) of grinding then yeah.
