Have yourself a Drago little Christmas…


Here it is, the biggest I-Mockery project of 2006. "Ivan Drago: Justice Enforcer" allows you to take your raw Soviet power to the streets and make 'em run red with the blood of all lawbreakers. This huge new flash game features 3 unlockable characters, a variety of super combo moves, a mini-game and much more. It will also save your progress, so each time you unlock a new character, it will stay unlocked even after you've closed your browser window! This game is dedicated to all of the "Rocky" films that we grew up on.

Please post your thoughts on the game here in the blog, we'd love to hear what you all think!

This is our big Christmas/holiday surprise to all of you. From myself, PoX, BoM and our tireless beta tester, Dr. Boogie, we hope this game leaves your holidays bruised, bloodied and beaten.

In all seriousness though, thanks to all of you who've supported the site so much over the years. Looking back on 2006, I honestly think it was I-Mockery's best year ever and this latest game is icing on the cake. Expect a lot more in 2007, including the launch of some new sections, features and a site redesign early in the year! Well anywho, I'm here in San Francisco now on break, but I've got WiFi access from our hotel room and will check in sporadically over the next week. And yes, the drive up the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) was absolutely incredible and everybody should do it at least once in their lives.

Me need sleep now. Have a spiffy holiday everybody!

A very fun game from i-Mockery. I'll admit to being a merely mild fan of the Rocky films, but this was truly a gem to play - I'm not sure if these graphics are originals or just palette swaps, but either way they're well animated and detailed well for such a game.
Nice little beat up feeling that links back to stuff like Battletoads and Double Dragon from when I was but a wee-lad. It's probably a bit hard for some people just beginning this genre (like there are any who are visiting the site), but still not as big of a bitch as Double Dragon felt like.
Probably the best pixel based Flash game I've seen so far. Can't wait to see the next game you guys produce - you keep surprising me.

Rog and Re-
have a wonderful holiday!


Oskar (Guest) on 12/24/2006 6:32 am

It's... a little glitchy, on several occaions through my play enemies have frozen and been unkillable. Then when I fought and lost to Apollo the boxingring got stuck so when I played the usual beat em segemtn, Apollo was standing ther punching me and the ring was infront of the screen. But overall it's a great game.


WatcherPrime (Guest) on 12/24/2006 11:04 am

Comrade RoG, you have done it again!

You make Mother Russia proud with this game!


Vert (Guest) on 12/24/2006 11:34 am

Well, I left you a little review on Newgrounds, but before I unlocked everything, so just wanted to add that the minigame was a nice tribute to that old classic!
Cheers and Merry Christmas!


Kai (Guest) on 12/24/2006 12:06 pm

hmm, the game seemed fine to me :P

uhm, how about putting the charge punch while crouched too?


Dan (Guest) on 12/24/2006 12:11 pm

All my 5s are belong to this. Easily one of the best SNES looking games I ever played. That big Russian boxer needed a game since a long time :D Thank you, -RoG-, PoX, BoM for this awesome game. You guys rule! A little too easy and glitchy, but, eh, I don't care. Three thumbs up!


Revenant (Guest) on 12/24/2006 12:31 pm

That was fun, I unlocked everything :D


TheWarfreak (Guest) on 12/24/2006 12:48 pm

A fine game! Thanks and happy holidays.


Shane Skekel (Guest) on 12/24/2006 2:46 pm

Badass, reminds me of Kung Food and Batman Returns for the Atari Lynx (I also made pixel art that resemble Lynx games).


Communisto (Guest) on 12/24/2006 3:20 pm

In Soviet Russia, game plays you!


Steve (Guest) on 12/24/2006 3:28 pm

Congratulations on kicking ass this year, you could stop now and still pull ahead of the year you exposed the lies of the shaving industry.


JohnyDamage (Guest) on 12/24/2006 3:31 pm

Merry Christmas.

I almost pee'd myself when I saw Ivan fighting the dinosaur.


El Hombre de los Moleculos (Guest) on 12/24/2006 4:11 pm

Cyborg or no, you've committed sacrilige by making Apollo more powerful than Drago. And how can you have Drago doing Gorbechev's bidding? Don't you remember those immortal words: "Yah seeb yaag. YAAH SEEB YAAG!" Otherwise, great game. I about died laughing when Pauly's robot appeared.


Gus (Guest) on 12/24/2006 5:37 pm

umm, Rog, Ivan Drago is one of my favorite rocky opponents next to clubber lang, so i loved this game. two things that would make it better is when ivan kills someone he could spout one of his HILARIOUS one-liners like, If he dies, he dies. the only problem i had is with the rhinestone cowboy freezing and not dying. have a merry christmas and a happy new years


you vill lose (Guest) on 12/24/2006 8:11 pm

Rog posted in the I-Mockery forums saying that the latest bugs were fixed and I just played through the full game with no problems. Drago's super move is awesome and came in handy a few times! Hold down A+S+D together and then release! WOW it destroys everybody in its path! I haven't figure out his other super move yet, have any of you?

The unlocked mini-game at the end makes for some good body smashing stress relief.


I defeat all man (Guest) on 12/25/2006 7:55 am

Hey RoG. Great game, but why no Clubber Lang in the game? I would have preferred some Mr. T instead of Herbert. I laughed when Drago cut off Apollo's list of nicknames.


Kev (Guest) on 12/25/2006 8:02 am

Another I-Mockery flash game, another brilliant game destroyed by impossible difficulty, another question of "Why do you hate us so much, RoG?"


Angryhydralisk (Guest) on 12/25/2006 9:18 am

destroyed by impossible difficulty? You just suck at flash games.


JohnEnigma (Guest) on 12/25/2006 11:26 am

By some strange cosmic mystery, I happened upon this game early yesterday afternoon. Even then, the only problems I faced where the Rhinestone Cowboy freezing (solved by using Drago's Super Move) and an endless loop of the intro to the fight w/ Rocky.

While the latter prevented further play, a simple refresh solved that and allowed resumed butt-kicking. Anyone else managed to get through Herbert's game w/out suffering damage?


poxpower (Guest) on 12/25/2006 12:09 pm

This is the easiest game of its kind ever made, so if people think it's too hard...
And yeah, too bad it's still a little glitchy, but we were short on time.
Stay tuned for the next update, with the Adrienne cyborg clones level and the Clubber Lang punch-out! Coming fall 2010.


ColdFusion (Guest) on 12/25/2006 3:07 pm

Pretty cool, though pause would be nice.


ShinRasputin (Guest) on 12/25/2006 5:17 pm

The minigame at the end is so ridiculously gory and bloody that I couldn't help but laugh. Nice tribute to the movies, too, and Herbert made me laugh (Gorby's speech with him is priceless).


Ralf (Guest) on 12/26/2006 3:12 am

The graphics and sound are great, but that gameplay needs work. The enemies have a full life bar, but some, like the Whateverjockstrap, the stabby fellow and the mafia guy TAKE FOREVER to kill. It got so bothersome in the end. =(

Still, it is a nice game. Just that there are bumps that could have been smoothed out...


-RoG- (Guest) on 12/26/2006 3:27 pm

Hey all! Still here in San Fran, but a quick note... we've just uploaded the latest bug patch to the game which fixes some issues people were having with the Herbert the Dinosaur (and with the Rhinestone Cowboy). Just do a hard refresh when you load the game (ie: clear your cache) and you'll be good to go!

Alright, back to exploring the streets of San Fran I go!


chickenlover (Guest) on 12/26/2006 5:10 pm

Awesome game and plus Rocky rules but it does freeze up sometimes and you can't see the words but once again sick game


Ralf (Guest) on 12/27/2006 12:39 am

I just noticed that when you beat Apollo Creed with Herbert the Dinosaur, the game just doesn't advance for some reason. So I never get the final battle to get the final character.

=( I ish sads!


Mike B (Guest) on 12/27/2006 2:06 am

This is amazing!! I always wanted to see an Ivan Drago game. He never gets the recognition he truly deserves. The music was perfect and the gameplay was challenging enough to prevent it from getting boring. Another great addition to your site!


Mike (Guest) on 12/27/2006 3:27 am

Awesome game overall. Pauly's robot was a nice touch. A couple of glitches though, sometimes the game won't advance.


Frank Castle (Guest) on 12/27/2006 4:13 pm

This game is awesome. "It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward." I wish you could use Rocky in the beat-em up portion though.


Logan (Guest) on 12/28/2006 11:39 am

Hey, Great game! i only have a bit of a problem after i fight APOLLO the game wont go on, i spent 2 minutes walking around the ring trying to see if i can climb out, or if i was supposed to wait for the game to continue... so basically what im saying is i think you still eed to work on a few bugs... BUT GREAT GAME!


Poobah (Guest) on 12/28/2006 5:27 pm

super moves are as follows

A+S+D and release, for a super move.

left + right + A + D and release = Super stomp.



Nathaniel De’Lauro (Guest) on 12/29/2006 9:31 am

i like it, it's like going back years and finding such an origonal idea hidden behind a crowd of peoplehuddled around the screen in arcades of the 90's


Codiekitty (Guest) on 12/29/2006 2:46 pm

He should have had a move/powerup that briefly turned him into He-Man.


John Boy (Guest) on 12/30/2006 8:43 pm

Huzzah, this game had it all. I laughed, I cried... It was better than Cats!!!


Mike (Guest) on 12/31/2006 12:17 pm

Okay now that it's breaks all other online games.


Chris (Guest) on 12/31/2006 9:13 pm

i'm sorry, but this game is impossible. i can't beat rocky, and the alfreda dude is too tough. i don't know how you people beat this game.


Revenant (Guest) on 12/31/2006 9:30 pm

That's cuz you suck Chris :3


aaron (Guest) on 01/01/2007 7:46 am

holy crap that was awsome!!!! I love the Rocky films so this was a joy to play. herbert the dinosaur was friggin sweet! two thumbs up on this gem.


Okrainets (Guest) on 01/01/2007 2:10 pm

I was kinda insulted by this, but it was fun to play nonetheless.

After I beat the game with Ivan and returned to the main menu, I couldn't play again. When I tried to select a character, the beeping noise came up and that was that.


Myahon (Guest) on 01/01/2007 9:42 pm

I froze once with the dinosaur but I still loved the game.


Connor (Guest) on 01/03/2007 2:46 pm

I couldn't have picked a better song for the minigame. I was laughing so hard, milk shot out my nose. And I was drinking beer. The only qualm with the game I might have is that "Eye of the Tiger" wasn't playing when I used Apollo. Two thumbs up!


Clubber Lang (Guest) on 11/18/2010 10:29 am

Clubber Lang, KO 3. In Rocky III, Clubber Lang, after beating Rocky in the first fight, said Rocky was tailor-made for him because all Rocky would do was charge in, upon where Clubber's superior strength and power would lay him flat. Rocky had to change to a more stick-and-move style for the second fight in order to stand a chance. The way Drago fights, as seen from Rocky IV, is to charge in, just like Rocky in the first Rocky III fight with Clubber. Drago would not take advantage of his superior reach and height. Assuming Drago and Clubber are in the same class when it comes to punching power, Clubber's superior experience (remember, Drago's fight with Rocky was only his second pro fight ever) should win the day. While it is true that Clubber Lang would being tiring and punching himself out after a couple of rounds, the fight shouldn't last that long. Lang in 3!
