Trio The Punch: Never Forget Me... is an Arcade game released in 1990 by Data East. In the game you pick from three characters (a ninja, a brawler and a barbarian) and cross various short stages where you must defeat enemies and pick up the hearts they drop to face the stage boss.

Why It Sucks

  1. Repetitive gameplay. You only walk left to right while killing enemies for the entire game.
  2. Sloppy collision detection, which coupled with the character's short attack range can make the game quite frustrating.
  3. Bad platforming.
  4. After each stage you get a roulette where you can power up or down, which seems to be totally random.
  5. There never seems to be an objective or any cohesion in the game.
  6. Repetitive (if catchy) music. Each character has his own theme, which loops indefinitely through the entire game until you change to another character.
  7. The game may sometimes glitch and leave your character stuck, forcing the player to reset the game.


  • According to the Japanese arcade game magazine Arcadia, the game was originally planned as a sugoroku game titled "TV Sugoroku Trio The Punch", until its content was changed during production into its released form.[1]
