Tongue of the Fatman is an eclectic fighting game. Choose from different alien races (including Human) with different abilities and fighting styles, purchase weapons and devices, and fight your way through multiple opponents to face the Fatman. Some of the features include being able to place wagers on the outcome of the fight, and the phenomenon of a special move being less powerful the more you use it to balance gameplay. Two-player, head-to-head combat is supported.

The Genesis version- as Mondu's Fight Palace- did indeed get released (see previous trivia entries.) This title was also used on some (all?) versions for other systems, such as the European C64 release.

Activision sponsored a contest which may have been the source of the flame spewing chicken mentioned before... on the back of the manual is a contest for people to send in ideas and sketches for a new character. ("Mondu Challenges You to a Draw!", ended April 30, 1990.) There is a slight hint that either a sequel or update was planned- "...we'll decide if your challenger is outrageous enough to be on the Fight Palace's next fight card."
