“Election Year Knockout is a boxing game that wears its Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! influence on its sleeve.”
Hardcore Gamer

“What really surprised me was how much depth and polish this game has. Not to mention, the writing is really witty and actually had me laughing out loud quite a few times. The developer did an “exceptionull” job on this game. (Sorry. I had to do it.) It sheds light on an otherwise dark topic for people and just has fun with it. I honestly can’t recommend Election Year Knockout enough.”
SNAPP Attack!

“While the initial pitch might inspire the odd eye roll, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Knockout looks to be a polished, suitably ridiculous arcade boxing game.”
Pocket Gamer

About This Game

Create your own political party, lace up your boxing gloves, and punch your way to the White House in Election Year Knockout! In a country torn apart by its political divide, the nation has resorted to boxing to settle its differences. Fight your way through hilarious political opponents from both sides of the aisle before squaring off with president Donald Thump himself!

Game Features

Beat them all and become president!
Fight political parody figures including Jab Bush, Uncle Joe, and Birdie Sanders. Maybe you even have what it takes to reach the White House and take on the leader of the nation, Donald Thump! Each opponent presents a unique challenge with his/her own strengths and weaknesses.

Absolutely hilarious
Hysterically funny cut scenes and political jokes are mixed in everywhere. You’ll never laugh harder at a boxing game!

Customize your fighter
Customize your fighter including the gender, hairstyle, skin tone, and hair color. There are even multiple patriotic styles of boxing attire to choose from with much more on the way soon!

Dozens of challenging bonus missions
The game doesn’t end after beating an opponent in the ring. Optional bonus missions will keep political pugilists interested for hours. Can you beat Jab Bush with a single punch or counter Donald Thump’s Stormy Smash with a haymaker three times in a single round?

Full controller support
Plug in a supported controller (including Xbox One and PS4 controllers) for an even more authentic retro boxing game experience.
