Description:
The Taekwondo Game – Global Tournament is the first ever mobile taekwondo game! Challenge your friends in cross platform multiplayer over local wifi, or make your way to the top on your own in the Global Tournament.

With movements based on motion-captured professional taekwondo players, the game stays true to the fighting style. Even the sound effects have been recorded in a real taekwondo dojang. The tournament, set in three stunning environments – Korea, Mexico and Iran - follows the Olympic rules.

Positioning and timing is key in taekwondo. Practice your skills in a taekwondo dojang before entering the tournament. Smart controls and easy-to-learn commands creates a great depth - making the game just as enjoyable and challenging for those new to the fighting genre, as well as veteran players.

The strikingly scenic graphics, the cool sound effects and the realistic animations give you the true meaning of taekwondo - the way of the foot and the hand.

It's a pretty sick game if you know anything about the sport. I love that it goes by the points for strikes and is not another brawler, that said the local Wifi for multiplayer is a real downer and I hope that changes soon so I can take on the world. I'll have to wait for the U.S. release to unlock the full game but it's pretty good

The matches seem too long. It would be better to set a max number of points for each round and the player who reaches it first wins the round.

It's staying true to the sport which has 1-2 minute rounds, generally people get 4-5 points a match but that would not work for a game. It's a true representation

And that's why I love this game, it's stay true to the sports! If only someone could do the same with Muay Thai
