WrestleFest Bodyslams onto iPhone and iPad

Growing up, I was a bit of a wrasslin’ fanatic. Recess and lunch breaks were devoted to armlocks and running clotheslines as we attempted to mimic our favorite WWF wrestler at the school yard. Then came the glorious arcade game WWF WrestleFest, which ended up eating most of my spare quarters. Well thanks to THQ, we can all relive the good ol’ days once again on-the-go with the release of WrestleFest for the iPhone and iPad.

The WWE arcade game fans have cherished for decades is back and better than ever! WWE WrestleFest delivers classic WWE action in 2-D. The faithfully recreated experience is complete with current day WWE Superstars like John Cena and Randy Orton, as well as iconic WWE Legends like Jake “The Snake” Roberts and “Macho Man” Randy Savage, all poised to compete in a variety of popular match types within several well-known arenas. In WWE WrestleFest, players may also challenge themselves to win a series of championships on the Road to WrestleMania and engage in multiplayer action.

The current lineup of WWE stars is somewhat slim, though THQ will be updating content every 30 days with more superstars and arenas via IAPs (first DLC is available for $0.99). There’s even an online multiplayer mode so you can go head-to-head with with both strangers and mates. And if you’re not ready to drop $2.99/$3.99 just yet for the full game, you can first grab WrestleFest Lite and WrestleFest HD Lite to get a good feel of the controls and gameplay. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to give Randy “Macho Man” a nasty DDT with Jake “the Snake” Roberts.
