"While the initial pitch might inspire the odd eye roll, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Knockout looks to be a polished, suitably ridiculous arcade boxing game."

"It’s a fairly simple looking boxing game, but the animation looks great and there’s no denying that it’ll be particularly satisfying to punch a lot of those presidential candidates in the face!"

"It's well-presented, the touchscreen controls are intuitive, and there appears to be a surprising amount of quality content to enjoy."

Tips for Getting Started
Election Year Knockout is a puzzlebox fighter where you manage your resources to destroy opponents in their moments of weakness. Experiment with each opponent to find out what makes him tick!
Fill your power meter every chance you get. A full power meter allows you to throw your haymaker. Punching your opponent fills the power meter, even if he blocks. You can also boost your power meter by performing perfectly-timed blocks.
Watch your stamina meter as you play, or you'll get winded. While winded, you can only block. However, a successful block refills your stamina and gets you back into the action, as does standing still for a couple of seconds. Landing a haymaker refills your stamina entirely and instantly.
If your opponent is blocking you, try dodging! Many opponents are defenseless when you catch them off guard.
Opponents also flash red when they are vulnerable, leading you to opportunities for a counter punch. Even better things happen if you counter opponents when they flash yellow.
If you're having trouble with the later opponents, try completing some of the earlier challenges. They can teach you alternate playstyles, advanced techniques, and even a few secrets.
