MANOS: The Hands of Fate, the 8-bit video game

You ever seen someone beat Mike Tyson in Mike Tyson’s Punch Out? You’re about to.

If you grew up on the NES, you’ll remember that was an era where games were often really, really fucking hard. There were cheat codes, but no easy mode and no way to buy your way to the end of the game. And one of the more notoriously difficult end bosses was Mike Tyson in the original version of Punch Out. The boxers you met along the way were cake, because once you got to Iron Mike, shit got real and very few people could take him down, and when it happened, the whole damn neighborhood turned out to watch.

Computer program can learn how to play and beat classic NES games

Classic NES games could be insanely difficult, but there was generally a pattern to the entire game, to the boss levels, etc. Straightforward and predictable, even if beating the game sometimes took superhuman reflexes. But if you take the human out of it and teach a program how to recognize those patterns, you would have this— a program that can learn how to play and beat the crap out of those difficult NES titles.
