Videogame Flashback: Lupin the 3rd Punch The Monkey Game

By Justin D Williams

Punch the Monkey follows the mold of other rhythm action games such as Dance Dance Revolution and Bust A Groove. All of the music in the game comes from the three CDs bearing the name Punch the Monkey. These CDs contain remixes of Lupin theme and background songs from various artists. Boasting Guncon and analog controller support, Punch the Monkey is an addicting game with loads of replay value. The normal game contains seven levels with each level having four difficulty levels: "Easy", "Normal", "Hard", and "Blind".
