The controls were a big pain. The players gripped handles that could be swiveled left and right to simulate punching. The problem was, they kept being broken by players. More and more was done to strengthen these controls until they were capable of finally being able to withstand public abuse. Unfortunately after all this the game didn't test well enough to be released.
