iBrawl - Hail to the Chief

Didn't see any threads on this for some reason, it seems like a nice fighting game with a fun political theme.


It recently got an update included was:
- Added options menu to control sound and music.
- Added difficulty settings. Start out as an Intern or jump right into Tycoon status if you're an experienced fighter. Instantly fight against the best that the A.I. has to offer.
- General Bug Fixes.
- Even bigger update on the horizon. Stay tuned, and thanks to everyone for their input!

iBRAWL - HAIL TO THE CHIEF answers the question plaguing economists for years. What do the wealthiest Corporate CEO's do for fun? Extreme Bare-knuckle Street Fighting of course.

Jab, dodge, and pummel your way through some of the most brutal Chief Executive Officers in the world. Real-time brawls will challenge both your skill and your wits as you try to win over the crowd for special attacks.

Each successful attack drives the crowd to your side in the Public Opinion meter. Give them a good show and they'll throw things at your enemy, scoring you bonus points.

Smooth animation and simple controls make iBrawl the perfect game for a quick arcade fix. Knock heads with sophisticated AI fighters or take on your friends in head-to-head MULTIPLAYER action.

Full player control allows you to tap and hold an action to perform an attack, or simply tap to fake the action, leaving your opponent always guessing.


CORPORATE CAMPAIGN - Battle your way to the top and claim the prize of Ultimate CEO Fighter. Face all of the CEO's, including the final four Corporate Outlaws.

ENDURANCE CAMPAIGN - Conquered the campaign with your favorite CEO's? Then take them all on in a non-stop marathon of increasingly difficult challengers. How many rounds can you last against the Best of Wall Street.

TWO-PLAYER MODE - Pound your friends into corporate powder with head-on realtime two player matches. All of the same arcade fighting action with the added benefit of bragging rights.

UNLOCK ALL CHARACTERS - Play as any of the 12 available CEO's, including the Corporate Outlaw bosses.

I wonder why no one has mentioned it... no one's gonna buy this let alone be interested in the first place.

It's one of our's. I haven't done an official "Upcoming Release" post on it yet because: A) We released the original before I joined the forum and B) I wanted to wait until we got this update out.

It was our first release, so I didn't have all of the timing down. Once it actually hit the app store it was already buried like 5 pages down. Pretty disappointing. We nailed it this time though, getting the update to drop on a friday. I'll do full post on it here in a day or two with screens and videos and such. Just been a little swamped with upcoming projects to get to it.

One thing I'll note about the game, we put a lot of love into the AI. It's a simple enough fighter with 3 actions. Dodge, Jab, and Uppercut. But you can tap any of those actions to fake it and swoop in with another attack, really adding a complexity to the gameplay. Fools human opponenets on head-to-head battles all the time.

But the A.I. knows this as well and will sometimes be fooled by it, other times it won't, leading to some very heated matches at the highest levels. That's the reason for the recent update. Used to be you had to beat several guys before you got a really good AI. now you can jump right to the hard levels, and the back-and-forth of attack and dodge and counter-attack is something that we're pretty proud of in action. In fact I'm hoping to get an AI vs. AI mode in the next one just so I can set it up on my desk and watch these guys duke it out.

Update is out and price dropped to 99 cents. Now includes Bluetooth 2-player action. Left the 2-player on same device in there as well. Think of it as Rockem Sockem Robots... but with Bankers.

Mods, could you change the title to reflect the new price?
