Trivia

The title "Tongue of the Fatman" arose from the original tiles "Red Belt" and "Mondu's Fight Palace." The title was based on one of the most memorable boss fighters, a sumo-like alien who had a tongue come out of his tummy!

One of the original cover art comps simply showed a tipped over chinese food box with a tongue sticking out!

The title Red Belt represented an "illegal to-the-death" fight, which was the original concept of the game. It then took on a more wacky form when the challengers became aliens with special powers, and you could buy "bio-boosts" to increase your stats in the game.
