Rock’em Sock’em Robots is the epic duel of boxers The Red Rocker vs The Blue Bomber that are controlled by the players. The way to win is by knocking off the head of your opponent. Rock’em Sock’em Robots was first designed by Marvin Glass and associates and manufactured by Marx Toys Co. in 1964. Through the years, Rock’em Sock’em Robots has been made by various toy companies like Hasbro, Mattel, Playco, and Toy “R” Us since the 2000s.

Rock’em Sock’em Robots is a simple and easy game to play. Truly it’s just taking two boxers and battling each other until there’s a winner. The true flaw about Rock’em Sock’em Robots is that you can only move your boxer forward and back and can’t go side to side and forward and back like in a real boxing match. It feels contained with only having one way to go, but does make it harder to protect yourself and attack your opponent at the same time. In the end, Rock’em Sock’em Robots gets 3.5/ 5 stars.
