Iron Fist Boxing

App store:Iron Fist Boxing

funky punch isnt bad and its "funky" (oi) , smack boxing (smack boxing ) is like oldschool nintendo punch out but your characters old now (maybe why he's bald ) fighting the village people, but FINALLY a decent looking fighting game that even has "muay thai" (Muay Thai)....why this may be better than "Christmas in July"....

And it seems this is not just a 3D engine show up... It seems to have content, at least more content than the average game.

Content is really, really important.

I don't mind to pay more for that.

From the website:

"Each boxer comes to life with unique attributes, different fight styles (Classic Boxing, Muey Thai, and Kick Boxing). 16 characters are availables. Use the touch capability to draw special slow motion combo during fight, use the accelerometer capability to move around and shake the iPod to recover from KO"
