The company behind Way of the Exploding Fist and Fighting Warrior also tried its hand at wrestling, with this game claiming to be the first 3D combat sports game, in which you can avoid the opponent by moving up or down the screen as well as left or right.
Like any fighting game worth its salt, the game can be played with one or two players. In one-player mode there are 10 opponents to take on in sequence.
The moves on offer include almost everything you'd find in real wrestling (and I don't mean WWE) - piledrivers, arm twists, body slams and turnbuckle flies, all of which are fully animated. The whole experience includes detailed multi-colour graphics and a full rock soundtrack.
Bop 'N Wrestle is a fun arcade-style wrestling game that was way ahead of its time in terms of graphics and player animations, although coaching options leave a lot to be desired. Your job: use over 20 different wrestling moves to advance Georgeous Greg towards winning the championship belt. The best thing about the game is the sheer number of wrestling moves you can use: clotheslines, full nelsons, backbreakers, and even suplexes are all here-- provided you learn how to execute them with awkward keyboard controls. Still, excellent graphics and animations that look great even today more than make up for the non-transparent interface. You can even do the crowd-pleasing Turnbuckle Fly move, which sees you land onto your groaning opponent from the corner ropes. A bit mindless, but a lot of fun, with enough wrestling moves and variety of opponents to keep wrestling fans entertained.
