Teleroboxer (テレロボクサー?) is a game for Nintendo's Virtual Boy video game console. The game is a boxing simulator played in the first person view.


It is the 22nd century, a time when a technology called "telerobotics" is commonly used. This area of study was developed to enable a robot to mirror the body movements of the human in control of it. The use of Telerobotics enabled robots to work under conditions unbearable to humans. As the technology matured, increasingly specialized robots were created. To increase people's interest in telerobotics, the pre-eminent scientist in the field, Dr. Edward Maki Jr., developed teleroboxing -- a boxing match between robots that are remotely controlled by human players. The players called themselves "teleroboxers". Teleroboxing achieved world-wide popularity immediately. Teleroboxers entered their robots in matches all over the globe, and each claimed to be the best. Finally, a Teleroboxing tournament was organized to determine the true world champion among the best teleroboxers.


The hero, Harry, is a relatively small robot who fights other robots in the boxing ring. The game uses two D-pads, one for each hand. The game is similar in many ways to the Punch-Out!! series (in fact, the game was developed by Nintendo IRD, which created the Punch-Out!! series).

The game pits Harry and his operator (the player) against 7 other robots. Each robot has a different look and attack style. For example, the kangaroo robot "cheats" and attacks with a second robot in its pouch.

If a player defeats all opposition without losing once, he faces the "Legendary Champ", a cat called Milky. Winning this battle without losing puts the player in a survival round where he must fight all the robots in the game at random until he loses. The robots are harder the second time around.
