About The Game

Sonic Blast Man is an arcade video game where the player has to wear a boxing glove and punch a pad to attack the enemies!


Taito lost a class action suit for $50,000 to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) because of injuries sustained by players of Sonic Blast Man. The CPSC alleges that between 1991 and 1994, Taito failed to report about 70 cases in which young players fractured or injured wrists and arms as a result of hitting the Blast Man's punching pad.
