App description: For the first time ever, Wrestling Revolution features BOTH aspects of the business in ONE shared universe - and this special "Pro" edition offers full access to each career with no holds barred! Start anywhere with anyone, and either take shots in the ring as a wrestler or call the shots backstage as a booker - 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!

Your purchase also includes a "Backstage Pass" that allows you to save 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 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:

A wrestling game? Is it a scam or pure evil? I didn't hear anyone talk about this.... You guys haven't said a thing.... Strange

I've played the original version. It's made by the guy who made Hard Time (Prison Sim).

There are some things I question but the game is pretty fun.

You make your own character and choose all of your own moves. Even your walking style and intro music and animation.

Wrestling is quite cold and if it's anything besides WWE you won't get much attention to your product...if it was 1999 it would be a much different story. Also Mat Dickie is quite a controversial fellow in the gaming world due to what some people would call "lack of humility" and his hype jobs on his projects makes him a less than sympathetic figure in some people's eyes which could contribute to the silence.

Personally Iv'e always liked the guy and find him to be a stand up type of person who is not afraid to offer his reply and in my opinion he makes great wrestling games that offer much more replay value than the high tech WWE fare and from the few times I've emailed him he was always really friendly to me.

I can certainly say that Wrestling Revolution 3D is not a scam and it's easily the best work of his career and the best wrestling game on the Idevices by far. If you have played any of the older AKI games such as WCW World Tour, WCW/NWO Revenge, WWF No Mercy you will certainly feel at home with WR3D. I think the presentation is on par with the earlier AKI releases and the gameplay is fantastic if your into the older style of wrestling game. The only downside is the game requires the newer Apple hardware to run well.

Yep no scam here just probably the best wrestling game you'll ever play that gets little to no attention.
I already had the free version and used the IAP to unlock the full game, I would say it's amazing but i do love mdickies games and have all the ones he's released for iOS.
Slightly prefer the 2d version but I still enjoy this 3d version too and if his precious games are anything to go by this will ony get better and better with every update.

Yep, I've been playing the Pro version for a few days now but didn't really care to post a thread since there was one for the free version and let's not kid ourselves...no one seems to give a crap about these games. Mind you, when I say that, I mean it a bloody shame, because yes...this is easily, easily the best wrestling game on iOS and is also MDickie's best work. As always, the options are endless, there's always something to do and for the first time, both Wrestling and Booking parts of the game are all in one package (hence the higher price). Such an easy recommendation.

Wow, this is very good. I just tried the free version. This would have been perfect if it could be officially licensed but still all of the premium goodness.

It doesn't really need to be officially licenced as you can edit the full roster yourself anyway customising all the characters,names entrance music etc. And have none of the restraints of being a licensed wwe product.

I'm still switching between both 2D&3D versions but they are both the best wrestling games around in terms of variety of moves and how everything flows in the matches with reversals and things.
Love them both.

Couldn't agree more. Granted I still prefer the 2d version due to the dynamic career and the insane amount of content which just has not made it into this version yet. But in a year or two once he's done his thing with this it will undoubtedly trump his previous work. For what it's worth I think the career in the 2d version tops most 'current' wrestling games on any platform.

Now just need to convince him to do an MMA style game. :-P
