About

Not to be confused with the Hartung Game Master game of the same name.
Urban Champion (アーバンチャンピオン) is a 2-player fighting game produced by Nintendo in 1984. It was inspired by the 1984 Game & Watch title Boxing (also known as Punch-Out!!). It is also Nintendo's first 2D fighting game, eventually followed in 1993 by Joy Mech Fight, released exclusively in Japan for the same platform.

Urban Champion (1984) reviews and comments

The REAL Street Fighter. Not really, that was a joke. This game's way better.
You play as someone with zero fashion sense beating up his twin that also has a non-existent fashion sense. Like, really? ALL BLUE, INCLUDING YOUR HAIR? Like, oh my gosh how do you, like, walk around like that? That is soooo 2019! Where's your mask?

The folk in the city are also all psychopaths, with J. Jonah Jameson (aka JJJ) throwing flower vases on one of you, hoping that you will die and stop fighting. And his wife throwing a bunch of confetti when you successfully murder your twin brother by throwing him in a manhole. Not a very educational game for kids, that is if you don't want your kid to murder his twin brother and celebrate doing it. If you do, well then I've got good news.

Overall, rating out of 100:
Story: 0
I admit, I made that whole twin brother thing up. There is no story.

Gameplay: 30
It's simple but effective AND fun. You can punch high or low and automatically block depending on your stance. For example, I'm in a high stance so if he hits high I'll block it. Unless I also hit at the same time, in which I will lower my guard. You can also dodge backwards which is a lot of fun to do.

Graphics: 5
Not very impressive, I think there should be better colors other than blue and green. Geez. Get some sense.

Sound/Music: 0
Eh.

That leaves this game with a knocking 35 out of 400! Not bad to play with someone.
