Kick punch it’s all in the mind! No, it’s not Parappa the rapper, It’s Knockout Home Fitness on the Nintendo Switch. Ever fancied punching and kicking the air in your front room sweating profusely? Good because this is the game for you! It has that knack of looking basic and kinda lightweight but is actually well thought out and planned that your muscles may not ache instantly but come the next morning any basic movement will feel like a Herculean effort. The whole game plays out like a physical rhythm action game. You get told which action and which side to do then it’s a case of timing the action with the icon on the screen. Home Fitness does do a good solid workout as you unlock a new action often but it doesn’t have as much variety as other games in the genre. Home Fitness focuses more on Maui Thai and boxing rather than your traditional actions and for that, it does offer something different. I wish it had a bit more variety but what it does is perfectly fine. It’s time to dust off the sweatbands, rip out the lycra and lace up your Hi – Tecs for there is exercise afoot! This is the workout game for those who only have a limited of time in a day for exercise.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
