Smack Boxing

App Store Link

The first boxing game made byFull Control ApS who also made the very underrated ElectroCute. Looks kinda cool and only $1.99, anyone wanna take the plunge? Gameplay looks a little slow though.

Wtf

I just beat the first cigar smoking guy and then I have to fight him again? dont you move on after a fight? The punches are a little slow and boxers dont slide all over the place. Feels odd without the dodge....how will you counter? Time to get some shut eye

Hi

I am one of the Smack Boxing developers. Any feedback is greatly appreciated, and we do listen carefully to what people say.

For this first version there is no career mode for one. So you have a random encounter and can thus end up fighting the same guy once again on the next fight.

We do want to add at least a "pick who you want to fight" screen as well as a career mode to the game + some extra opponents. Requests for crazy characters are most welcome. We initially had caricatures of political figures in there in the best "Spitting Image" style, but that got Apples reviewers up from their chairs. So we had to do last minute total art change.

With our latest game ElectroCute not really doing that well (thanks for thinking it was underrated - we ourselves really dont know why it never took off other than Apples semi crazy way of sorting apps by initial upload date instead of when they approve it), we decided to get the boxing game out fast and see what happens rather than spend 4-5 weeks extra development at this point. We do support all our games though no matter how well they do. But good comercial success means that we can expand a game much more.

Sounds good, mate. Hope you get cracking on career mode soon, then i'll probably get it. At the moment, the game seems a bit too random for my liking. The concept is really good though!

Best of luck

Thanks! I do hope you consider buying it though right now, as its a bit of hen and egg problem. If everyone waits, then there is no incentive to make great feature updates.

And we think there is great gameplay already present in there using the random opponent mode for several train trips and similar :-)

And you cant beat the $1.99 price for a original and good looking game ;-)

you should promote it more to make more sales. Anyway, the video doesn't show how you control your boxer. By tapping? Acce?

A good sword remain inside its sheath
A good M16 remain in safe mode
God! So, many games n so little money!!
