Vblack:

1. How to get up after being knocked out in this new version? I still don't understand it and there's no tutorial on how to do it.

2. I love the new RPG-ish approach of the game where we can increase our player's stats. My question is, will this increase our opponents' stats too? eg. I'm using Omar now and have increased his stats, when I use Wong Lee, will I face the original Omar or the strong Omar?

3. Also, why is the original music now very rarely used? I love that one a lot!! In fact, that partially sold the game to me

4. When I win the game, I much prefer there's no 'victory tune' like in IFB 1 and 2. At the moment, whenever I win, there's always that victory tune overlapping with the background music.

5. Animations when people getting up and lose is still not fixed from v1.0. They stand up and get into fighting stance first before realising they already lose, lol. Not big problem, but it's better if they don't get into fighting stance if they already lose.

Overall, I'm super duper delighted with the update. Never knew you guys were this committed to this game, I'm so surprised with such a massive update, new features and even the coming Online Multiplayer!!

I think vblack has some better looking screenies than the one on the Appstore.

Anyway, at $1.99, this game is officially bargain of the month.

There are only 2 fighting games worth mentioning in AppStore: Blades of Fury and Iron Fist Boxing.

Oh, I saw the $1.99 price on salsamd post so I thought it was $1.99
Yes, even at $3.99 it's still a bargain of the month, especially for 3GS owners!!

You guys took a step back with the icon, I reckon. Text on it is illegible, and the boxing glove isn't as clearly identifiable as it was previously. Text below the icon is also fragmented ("Iron...xing 3"?) which contributes to the ugly appearance.

Time to see how much the actual game behind the icon has improved, though!

[edit] - Erm... I entered 'sparring', and on the character select screen I pressed the button on top of the phone when interrupted to find my phone vibrating away in my pocket. Thought it might be a call, but I unlocked the phone to find the game telling me that I'm not blocking. Should the game not pause when you lock the phone?
