Iron Fist Boxing v2.0 update is out!

[App Store Link, $3.99]

If you want to know what has changed in the current update:
Iron Fist Boxing : Second Round.

Basically it addresses every issue from the 1st Iron Fist Boxing.

+ Fixed game stability (all random lockup are fixed, lockups with touch screen fixed as well)

+ Added new stats at end of each matches (attack, block ratio and much more).
+ New cameras during match.
+ Improved particle engine (bloodier )
+ Metascore, based how you played a match. Metascores can be compared against a *online* database with a TOP 5 of the world best fighters.
+ Added new game mode : training mode for understanding the controls.
+ Added a minigame in the middle of the story mode.
+ Added story lines after each match, with a plot for each character, tips from your trainer for a deeper and more interesting story game mode.
+ Improved menus (with button for navigation in addition of sliding the page)
- Removed the 'help' page (use the training mode instead).
+ Added vibration support for iPhone 3G.
+ Added new musics.
+ Added new game ending.
+ Quick restart : Play a game, exit, then launch the game again : it will bring directly to the character selection, skipping menus.

yeah that's too bad.....I would have picked it up to try it at .99too, but at 3.99 I think I'll wait for the time being. not saying the app isnt worth it, I'm sure it is, but I there is just a big difference trying a 4 dollar game compared to a 1 dollar game. Best of luck with 2.0 dev.

Even after going through the training, I still can't beat the first boxer. Blocking is horrible, and it feels like me pressing punch gets me hit more times then I swing.

Great graphics, but just not fun at all for me. Too bad, as I had high hopes for this update.
