Amit the Charmer - Challenge Mode Battle Rank A

Coffee Beans:
     It's been a while since I have posted any video from Rage of the Gladiator, but earlier this week I received a comment on one of my YouTube videos, and the comment said, "I was wondering if you have an Amit the Charmer Challenge Mode video?  Or do you have any hints on beating him...?"
     Well, I had already uploaded several videos from Rage of the Gladiator, but none were a full battle against Amit the Charmer.  So, I sat down last night and recorded some matches against him.

     Amit the Charmer's description in Rage of the Gladiator reads, "Amit is a dirty vagabond who roams the streets of Avalance.  He's a well-known con-artist that's always looking for handouts.  Rumor has it that if you don't pay him off, he'll charm you with his flute, and then order his snakes to devour you."

     SPOILER ALERT: The video below is of a full battle against Amit the Charmer, in Rage of the Gladiator's Challenge Mode.  If you don't want to see a full battle against him, you shouldn't watch the video, but if you're stuck on him, or trying to achieve a higher Rank, the video may be of some help to you.

Filtered Thoughts:
     I was using the "Horizontal" controls in the match, which are the controls using just the Wii Remote.  One big piece of advice I have when playing against Amit the Charmer in Challenge Mode, and just trying to beat him, is to never skip any in match animations/cut-scenes.  What I mean by this, is never press the button that skips the animations of you getting up from the ground if you get knocked down, and don't skip the animations/cut-scene in between rounds when you knock him down...just let the animations play out.
     There are a few boss battles in Rage of the Gladiator that will sometimes have the attack timing thrown off briefly if you skip the animations during the match, and Amit the Charmer is one of those bosses, so it's best to just let them play out.
     As I stated in the video, if you're interested in Rage of the Gladiator you can currently download a free demo for the game on the Wii's Shop Channel, and play through the game's first three boss battles.  I highly suggest giving the game a try, especially if you were ever interested in the Punch-Out games, but perhaps never gave them a chance.

     Have any of you downloaded the demo for Rage of the Gladiator, and if so, what do you think of what you have played?
     If you already own the full WiiWare version of Rage of the Gladiator are there any boss battles you would like to see footage of?

If anybody is interested in Rage of the Gladiator, the full WiiWare version is available to download for just 1000 Wii Points, or $10.  You can use a Wii Points card, or you can use a credit card, to purchase it from the Wii's Shop Channel.


  1. Excellent work! Not as flawless as some of your other fights in Rage of the Gladiator, but it's almost poetry in motion.


  2. @BitNick:
    "Not as flawless as some of your other fights..."

    LOL, yea I think Amit was probably my most challenging Rank S to get in the game, just because of his Fire Throwing/Spitting attack that starts happening in round two of the battle.

    Do you own the game, or have you tried the demo, by any chance?

  3. That was a good video. I haven't actually played this yet, but I do believe I'll grab the demo. I liked the original Punch out, and the Wii one was one I've been meaning to talk about on my blog for awhile now having beaten and traded it in somewhat recently. No clue when I'll find time to play the Rage demo, but I'll hafta let you know what I think. Nice job in the video though - you looked like you had that fight down.

  4. Ha ha! Yeah, all I meant by the "Not as flawless" remark was that you, my friend, have shown some real mastery in some of your other videos. In all fairness, some of Amit's moves are not as easily defended as some of the other combatants.

    Funny enough, I am a big "Punch-Out" fan, but I haven't played Rage of the Gladiator. I'm going to hop on the Shop Channel and download the demo right now!
