- Sumo Fighter [Action Game] -

- Potential Pros & Cons -

- You get to play with a SUMO WRESTLER
- Detailed backdrops and large character sprites
- Decent audio
- Moderate length
- Password support
- Different difficulties present new enemies and challenges
- Interesting blend of platformer, RPG, and Japanese aesthetics
- Uncommon game (for collectors)

- The hero, Bon-chan, lags slightly between turns
- Bon-chan stomps fairly slow
- Rising levels create holes everywhere you jump (very annoying)
- The U.S. needs more games with Sumo Wrestlers for stars

Vyse States:

"More fun than a barrel of monkeys? Maybe not, but Sumo
Fighter is a fine Game Boy Action/RPG starring a hero we hardly
got to know. This game wields a solid gameplay engine and
Japanese culture in spades, not to mention you even get a little
of the whole Sumo Wrestling/Oozumou experience on the side.
Too bad we'll probably never see anything like this in the
states ever again."
