The Fighting genre has taken a long time to prove it can be made to work on the iDevice. After some hiccups and original views Ragdoll Legends for example, one of the most famous franchises of fighting games – STREET FIGHTER IV took the AppStore literally by force. It finally put an end to the discussions around the right of the fighting genre to exist on the platform. And almost out of the blue Bruce Lee Dragon Warrior, originally designed for the iPhone, has arrived to fight for the crown of best fighting game.
Arcadia, California – Morning Egg, creators of the popular iNutty game for the iPhone and iPod touch announced today the release of “Boxing Fighter”, a fully customizable boxing game in the arcade style made popular by such classic titles as Mortal KombatTM and Street FighterTM.
Fighting Game fans on the iDevice have undoubtedly been getting their fill (and unleashing countless fireballs) with the recently released Street Fighter IV. Not to be lost in the Capcom hype and buzz, Artifical Life’s Spartacus: Blood and Sand has just dropped in price from $4.99 to FREE. Based on the original Starz TV series of the same name (produced by Sam Raimi), the iPhone game features great visuals, solid controls and numerous gameplay modes. For those who like the genre and/or enjoy the well received TV show, this is one App Store deal that shouldn’t be missed.
The ragdoll physics craze started back in 2005 when Mark Healey released his indie game – Rag Doll Kung Fu. The distinguishing feature of such games is that you control one or more hot-points on the character and the rest of it follows using common physics. There have been several games on the iPhone using the same basic idea, but none have yet been able to rival the success of the grand-daddy that started them all. And just recently Chillingo released Ragdoll Legends – the would-be contender to the throne.
