App description: The Wrestling Revolution rumbles into the 3rd dimension - now featuring BOTH aspects of the business in ONE shared universe! A wrestling career challenges you to take shots in the ring, whereas a "booking" career allows you to call the shots backstage - promoting entertaining matches every week for ratings. Seeing each side of the curtain gives you an even better appreciation for the other, and ensures you'll never grow bored of wrestling again! Both modes are available to play for free, with the option to upgrade to enjoy the "Pro" experience with no ads or limitations.

And if playing Pro isn't enough, a separate "Backstage Pass" allows you to play God by saving your changes to all 9 rosters before pitting them against each other in dream matches of your own creation! With 4 pages of rules to mix & match - including up to 20 wrestlers in rings of any shape or size - the only limit is your imagination. You can also blow off steam with no pressure by revisiting the 8 weeks of free shows from the game's promotional tour. Not to mention the interactive training process that teaches you how to lock up in the first place.

BASIC CONTROLS
The game features an interactive tutorial that you are advised to play through, but the basic controls are as follows:
CURSORS = Movement (double-tap to dash)
A = Attack (with a direction to aim high, without to aim low)
G = Grapple
R = Run
P = Pick-Up / Drop (with a direction to throw)
T = Taunt / Pin / Referee duties
EYE = Change focus / Turn opponent around
HEALTH METER = Switch character
CLOCK = Pause / Change camera angle

PERFORMANCE
Although every effort has been made to keep performance as high as possible, some devices may benefit from a visit to the Options menu to fine tune the display:
- The number of characters is perhaps the biggest factor so consider turning off referees and setting a limit on the match size.
- If you don't want to sacrifice numbers, you can sacrifice polygons instead and opt for "Basic" character models (no fingers).
- The ropes are surprisingly demanding and you may squeeze in an extra character if you make them "Static".
- Turning off shadows and reducing crowd sprites may also help.

I regret that there's more to this game than I could ever fit in an app store description, so please consult the online guides for further reading:

Oh phew! I'm useless when it comes to sport, had no idea if I was fluffing up and reposting something lol. Glad it's good though; all I know is that MDickie is a respected name at least.

I'm here I've been playing this all day but then I had to go out so that's why I've not been here.
I really liked the way they incorporated the adverts into the matches. Because one fight I had the guy on the mic say we'll be back after this short advert then a 15sec advert played and then it went back to the fight. It seemed like a nice way to place the adverts in a free game.
The game overall is awesome and I can't wait for the updates but at this point I'm still preferring the 2d version of WR.

Just got done trying out the first release and this is easily the most wrestling of any wrestling games I have played in recent years including consoles. One of the main criticisms of the 2d game is the dated look but WR3D is very nice to look at with the graphical candies turned on and I am loving all the new animations that make the matches feel much more alive than any of his previous work. The big downside as of release 1.0 is that you need the latest hardware to run the game at max at a acceptable frame rate without sacrificing a graphical setting somewhere. This will easily be the best wrestling game on the App Store when all the features and extra polish are added (WR2D taking the top spot right now).

Yeah it's more of a demo right now than full-featured game but the updates should be plentiful in the coming weeks and months.

Am I just not seeing the double ring match it mentions or is just a teaser for one of the upcoming updates the devs planning?
