Ashita No Joe is a boxing game published by K Amusement
and released in 1992. The game is based on a Japanese Manga popular in
the 1970s and also known in the west as Tomorrow's Joe. The player
takes the role of Joe Yabuki and must fight his way through an intense
boxing tournament. Seven opponents stand between him and victory and each pro-boxer
is tougher to beat than the last. Two buttons are used throughout the game - one throws
basic straight punches and directional button combinations allows Joe to use
uppercuts and hooks. The second button puts Joe in guard and lets him block attacks.
Life bars on top of the screen display the players current status and the winner
is decided through Knock Out on the third fall. A two-player mode is available.
