Description of Tongue of the Fatman

Mondu commented :This is pretty much the best fighting game ever released. It is horribly unbalanced, and incredibly retarded. However, nothing beats getting hopped up on those speed boosters and just thrashing an opponent because you can throw ten trillion punches in under one second.

Rubix cube man for life. Also that green blob thing, and the bloke with blades for hands. If anybody is wondering how to do the fart attack, it's the special move for behemoth (I think that's his name; I'm referring to the person standing between the blue and the pink characters).

the dos game came with a baseball card. I got "Mondu the Fat", with a record of 75-5-2.

controls... you have
7 8 9 w e r u i o
4 5 6 s d f j k l
1 2 3 x c v m , .
action key: 0 space enter

action up?
shove jump highkick
fwd special back
throw duck lowblock

action down
punch high kick punch
specmov special backflip
fwd flip low kick flip opposite

now special + the corner keys is for special weapons.
i.e. 5+7 or 5+1 or 5+3 or 5+9

rpg elements should be added to themes. this is probably the only versus fighting game, that really includes rpg elements.

Never knew there was a DOS version of this game. Back in the early days of Sega Genesis in the early 1990s, I remember seeing a crowd of kids outside video game stores playing Fatman.

This is the best game I have ever played.
It's so unusual and amazing.
After you take the time to discover how to properly use the controls it become's a whole new experience.

Right - this is an awesome game for its time (1989). It was hard to learn how to fight and use all the weapons but it was worth it and I still remember it after all these years. New generation will not understand it anyway.

Man, I loved this game when I was a kid but it was always really buggy. I think my computer was not quite capable of running it correctly. It was extremely frustrating because I thought the game and characters were amazing (when it was working). I don't know why this game had such a big impact on me as a 9 year old kid but it did.

Quite retarded, but still awesome.

Great game, one of the all-time best, and was a genre-defining game at the time, because it had RPG elements that other fighters didn't (Street Fighter II, etc) in that you could gain winnings and purchase items to use during a fight. Also, one of the fighters' moves, as I remember, is to blow a fart in the opponent's face. Yes, genre defining classic I tell you.
