Panza Kick Boxing is a very nice PC conversion of the classic Amiga kick boxing game by the French company Futura. It's probably one of the best fighting games ever made (and one of the few Thai boxing games in existence). It features good smooth animations; easy but still complex enough controls that make for great gameplay; a training gym, where you can improve your boxer's abilities; and the option to customize your attacks. The PC conversion even features all the samples from the Amiga game including the cool title tune by Michel Winogradoff. Sadly, there is no soundblaster driver for them but just sample-drivers for the PC speaker and adlib sound card.

The game has some problems on modern computers such as the demo showing up after a couple of milli-seconds on the menu screen, giving you hardly any time to choose the various options. A slow-down utility might help. Two thumbs up!

Note: if you like the game, also check out the better but lesser-known sequel called Best of the Best, also on this site :)
