Description

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.

Trivia

In addition to the 3 1/2" disk version not having the digitized sounds, the 5 /14" version also featured additional background scenery during the fights and several different screens, such as when the player begins the game or dies.

Tongue of the Fatman featured off disk copy protection which required looking up a statistic about one of the fighters. The statistics were listed in the form of trading cards printed throughout the manual. Mondu The Fat was the only character to have an actual color card included in the box, the picture on the front of the card taken from the MCGA version of the game.
