Ninja Boxing Calculator, inspired by the original Handheld Boxing Hit!

Ninja Boxing appears to be a simple calculator, performing all the functions you need but with the slide of a switch it turns into an action-packed Fighting Game that warps you straight back to the 80's.

You control your Ninja's every move. Make him jab, punch, dodge and kick. Build up your attack power and & flying kick the CPU Ninja for six!

But you'd better keep your fighter out of the other Ninja's reach! Because if he hits your man with a good one, you'll be on the ground getting counted out before you know it!

You have 8 rounds to knock out your opponent, and you can rack up points in up to 99 fights. Your highest scare is added to the high score table until a more aggressive Ninja knocks it out.

This is where fighting games began.

Take a trip back to the beginning!

Impression

This little game/calculator is a hidden gem! Really addictive and highly competitive! A must try.

If you like old-school pixel/dot matrix style beat 'em-ups.. This game stands out for its uniqueness. I got to fight 21, very engaging; makes you want to have another go every-time

Also doubles as a calculator, a cool looking one too

Needs to include full screen support and multiplayer over Game Center. This will make the app 5 stars! Such a classic, you won't be disappointed

This looks pretty cool, not cool enough for me to rush and buy it but cool anyway.

Hi All

My name is Richard, I'm the author of Ninja Boxing Calculator. Nice to see some positive responses, it's been a long road to get here.

Just a few quick notes on what's happening:

Just got the first review: SentralGamers just gave it 95%

Here's a seven second Vine of the gameplay:

Hoping everyone likes the game. I'm happy to answer any questions anyone might have.

A little bug i found when switching between game & calculator (mid game) The fighting sound FX will mute completely.

Really happy that you're liking it! It's taken me over two years to finish & release the game!

Sorry to hear you've having issues with sound - I'll look into it. You could try hitting the Clear button when you've in the game: I put in an easter egg that you can switch between retro & movie sound effects when pressing clear. That might fix the problem in the short term while I sort it out.

Complete agree with you that it needs full-screen & Game Center support. I've pretty much finished full-screen support & I'll do my best to add Game Center in the next update.

Thanks again!

I change my original impression! There is NO BUG!!! It seems I mistaken the clear button as a bug! Just tried it, and it is fine... No issues. The game works fine. I just assumed it was a bug switching between calculator & game... I must have pressed 'C' by mistake and not noticed

OP edited.
