Who Wants to Beat Up a Millionaire is a video game parody of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. It was created by Hypnotixc Inc, and released in 2000 by Simon & Schuster Interactive for Windows 95, Windows 98, and Sega Dreamcast.
The objective of the game is to answer multiple-choice questions correctly, by using a buzzer to answer. Following this, the player assaults another player's character. The objective of the game is to assault another player sufficiently so that they drop off the game's ladder, a parody of the real show's question ladder. The last player is the winner.
Like its more serious (and non-violent) real-life counterpart, Who Wants to Beat Up a Millionaire? gives the contestants "lifelines" to help them out if they get stumped. The three lifelines are:
- One or the other: Eliminates two incorrect answers, analogous to the 50:50 lifeline on the real game show.
- Pass the buck and chicken out: Give the question to another contestant.
- Fortune cookie: Gives the player a hint.
- Egregious Philbin, host and parody of Regis Philbin
- Sheik Abdul Chickpea, a Middle Eastern oil magnate
- Daisey Mae LePlume, a possible parody of Anna Nicole Smith
- Rich Littleweasel III, a rich spoilt brat
- Melvin Dotcom, a parody of Bill Gates
- Ronald Hump, a parody of Donald Trump
IGN rated the game 5.7 (Mediocre) for lack of replayability.
