Wow.. FK3AXW3KFWPF was still available. Usually the unregistered vultures take them and don't say thanks. Thanks!

MLEMNHNN99N3 Was also still available too. Didn't expect that. Thanks!

Will leave a review on iTunes after I've given the game some play time. Looks very fun.

Finally got around to giving this some quality time. I love it! It definitely has the classic Punch Out feel. The normal graphics are nice and crisp. The retro mode (which I didn't even realize was there at first) was a pleasant surprise. I have also played Super KO Boxing 2 in the past and that game doesn't even compare. I always like when smaller devs come out ahead .

Just a couple of suggestions. Unless I missed it, I didn't see the game let the player know how to dodge. Took me a couple of matches to figure it out. I don't think adding buttons to the screen would be good as that would crowd things too much but maybe a quick tip on a loading screen would be sufficient. Also, it might be nice to have a small timer on screen to show how long is left in the round. So far none of my matches have left the first round (about halfway through the second circuit) but it might build up some tension if your opponent is one shot away from being KO'd and there is only a few seconds left on the clock.

Thanks again for the promo code. You guys are definitely on my radar now.

About retro mode, a funny thing in the Italian AppStore - a player complained about the new graphics, saying he liked the older appearance better. I hope I didn't make the retro mode option too hard to find.

We've recently submitted a lite version of Pocket Boxing Legends - waiting for approval. It's got some improvements to the 'gym' mode - specifically, the touch targets are exactly highlighted to make it obvious where to tap to trigger each move. I've also made it more obvious via the splash screen that you can rotate the device and play from any orientation. In my opinion, on an iPhone, landscape works best, while on iPad, portrait is better.

We're working on a bunch of other unrelated games, but will definitely be returning to Pocket Boxing Legends early in the new year to officially incorporate multiplayer support.

Free Pocket Boxing Legends

A lite version of Pocket Boxing Legends is now available - a great way to try before you buy, especially if you have an older iDevice. It includes training mode and three practice bouts from the amateur circuit.

Easy 8 Software working on some exciting new titles for early 2011, including major updates for Pocket Boxing and Card Shark.

In the meantime, Pocket Boxing Legends is on sale for 99 cents through the end of the holiday season. Pocket Boxing Legends is a great option for folk that want not just a "punchout vibe" but the classic arcade gameplay that made PunchOut Arcade a smash hit in the US in the early 80s.

Merry Christmas,
