Do we need more games about punching? Yes. The answer is always yes. So dust off your knuckles and celebrate the arrival of Fist Puncher on Android.

Fist Puncher is as good a name as any. It's a game about punching people with your fist - a retro-style 2D brawler - after all. Whether or not you punch fists is debatable. You certainly punch skulls and ribs, though.

And anyway, we already have Punch Quest, Trigger Fist, Fist of Awesome, and Unstoppable Fist, so Fist Puncher is just fine.

It was originally released on PC a couple of years ago and seems to have gone down well. Like a knuckle sandwich delivered to the face of a pompous git.

Anyway, if you don't mind a bit of sidescrolling street fighting, Fist Puncher is here for you. It's also full of complete buffoonery.

Here, I'll prove it: a city has been held in a criminal grip by a guy called Milkman. You play as a black belt neurosurgeon known as Dr. Karate who sets out to rescue the citizens.

And if that's not proof enough, one of the screenshots shows a lorry driving past with an advert on it for "Spunk Cola." Yep, that'll do it.

You can purchase Fist Puncher for £7.82 / $9.99 on Google Play right now.
