Now for the next Vote:
Evander Holyfield’s Real Deal Boxing



Evander Holyfield’s “Real Deal” Boxing is a boxing video game that was developed by ACME Interactive and published by Sega in 1992, released for the Mega Drive/Genesis and Game Gear consoles. It was followed by a sequel in 1994, Greatest Heavyweights , which featured a number of improvements.

The game features Evander Holyfield, and over 28 imaginary fighters. It uses 2D sprites seen from a side-on view, combined with a top-down map of the ring, to allow boxers to move 360 degrees about the ring. The cartridge utilises battery-backed RAM to save a player’s progress.

In career mode, the player fights their way through the 28 selectable imaginary boxers in the game, with the last of these being against Holyfeld himself, for the World Heavyweight Title. Following the attainment of the title, the player then fights in a number of ‘challenge’ matches, against high-ranked contenders. Some of these fights include imaginary fighters who were previously unseen in the rankings. After a certain number of fights (usually 20-25) the player’s boxer will weaken and it will be increasingly more difficult to keep his attributes at a high level. Once the career of the player’s boxer reaches 40 fights, he will have to retire. This prevents gamers from repeatedly fighting the same low-ranked, low-quality boxers in order to receive more training (and thus better attributes, making the game easier) at an early stage of their career. If the player beats Holyfield he will also decline and fall down the rankings until he eventually retires as well. Only resetting the internal memory of the game can bring Holyfield back to his optimum form.

The Addams Family



The Addams Family’s lawyer, Tully Alford, has taken control of their Gothic mansion and imprisoned Morticia Addams, Pugsley Addams, Wednesday Addams, Granny and Uncle Fester. The player controls Gomez Addams as he explores the various rooms in the mansion, locating items and battling monsters, until he has located all of the lost family members. Gomez cannot save Morticia until the rest of the family is rescued.

Gomez starts outside the front door of the mansion. Inside the house, Gomez can move from level to level in basically any order. The player will soon discover that the mansion is full of secrets, hidden passageways and side levels, and bosses (for the purpose of increasing Gomez’s health).

Gomez dispatches enemies by simply jumping on their heads (similar to the Super Mario games). He can also find objects to throw at them, such as golf balls.

Beavis and Butthead



Beavis and Butt-head is a video game adaptation of the MTV animated TV show about a couple of slackers obsessed with heavy metal who apathetically get into and out of random situations in their hometown of Highland, Texas. In the story of the game, they’re searching for GWAR tickets and must fight through various stages to recover their torn up pieces.

The Genesis version features adventure game elements, with Beavis and Butt-head exploring the world to find the tickets.
