For those of you who are as brain dead as Frankie pretends to be, FBB is a 'simulation' of a boxing match in the same way as the classic arcade game, Punch Out. You view big Frank from behind and have total control over his dodging, weaving, bobbing, punching, and being hit very hard. Your aim is to win the title by beating hell out of 8 internationally stereotyped opponents ranging from the big but clumsy Canadian Crusher (a lumberjack by occupation) through to the USA champion, Peter Perfect.

Graphics are cartoony and very well animated. Sound is just a few thwaks here and there, but this doesn't detract from the enjoyability. Playability is high, and I can see it being played for quite a while.

One of the best punch-em-ups of all time. The price won't hurt you though.
