There's a new Mike Tyson video game out, but it has nothing to do with Nintendo. Instead, it's an iPhone boxing title called Mike Tyson -- Main Event. Spoiler alert: It looks a lot like Mike Tyson: Punchout!! but it's free, and you can download it right now.
I wonder if Nintendo is mad? It's a lot like Punchout, with a roster of colorful boxing opponents, with names like Jordy McDirt, Fluke O'Brady and Jay Shore Tenerelli, and the same kind of over-the-shoulder, swing your fist action.
Is it fun? Sort of, sure. It's worth the price, anyway. The commercial above, however, is better than the game, I have to say, if only because it stars old Iron Mike, who is among the most enigmatic, charismatic figures in popular culture. I (heart) Mike Tyson!
