Evander Holyfield's "Real Deal" Boxing Description

Evander Holyfield's Real Deal Boxing is a boxing video game that was developed by ACME Interactive and published by Sega in 1992. It was released for the Sega Genesis and Sega Game Gear consoles. It was followed by a sequel that featured a number of improvements, Greatest Heavyweights of the Ring.

The game features Evander Holyfield, and 28 other, imaginary fighters. The visuals of a fight are made up of 2D, sprite-based boxers, and a simple 3D rendering of the ring. A small, overhead map of the ring, featuring both fighters' positions, is visible during fights. Thus, it is possible to move 360 degrees around the ring. However, due to all the boxers' sprites being drawn from one side-on point of view, their lateral movement appears somewhat unusual. The game features a career mode in which the player fights their way through all the boxers in the game until facing Holyfield himself, and an exhibition mode, in which they can play as any boxer, against any boxer. The cartridge utilised battery-backed RAM to save a player's progress.

A player has a stamina meter that decreases whenever they are hit. When the stamina meter reaches zero, that player's boxer will suffer a knockdown. The stamina bar is not affected by how much physical activity the boxer engages in (apart from the physcal activity of getting punched). Aswell as their main stamina meter they also have a meter for their head and their body, which shows how damaged each section of their physiology is. When the head or body meters reach zero, that boxer will temporarily stagger about, dazed.

During career mode, the player creates their own boxer. Options to edit include name, body size, handedness, skin colour and short colour. Each boxer in the game has four attributes: power, speed, stamina and defense. These attributes all vary widely between the 30 boxers featured in the game (Evander Holyfield has the maximum rating on all of them). During career mode, all of the attributes can be increased by using money earned from fights to pay for various activities, such a free weights session or a protein diet.

Digitised speech is used, for ring announcements, and for the taunts that computer-controlled boxers will sometimes say during a fight.
