Vivid Games released Real Boxing for Android earlier this week for $4.99. That price is a bit on the high end when it comes to mobile games, so it’s understandable to want to know all you can about the game before slapping down the money. We’ve put together a video demonstrating the basic aspects of Real Boxing including its control scheme, customization options and mini-games. Give a look and see if this game is one you must own.
The biggest draw about Real Boxing is its graphics. This game was developed specifically for NVIDIA Tegra devices. You must have a device with a Tegra 2 or Tegra 3 processor in order to play Real Boxing. It’s also powered by the Unreal Engine 3 which gives it an extra glossy coat of paint. These great graphics also don’t bog down the gameplay. It runs very smooth with little to no lag. The startup time is pretty fast as well.
Now comes the bad part. Real Boxing has an in-game purchase system for currency. There’s only one kind of currency in this game, but you need to have it in order to strengthen your boxer. If your stats aren’t equal or at least close to that of your opponent, you can and will get knocked out easily. The solution to this is to grind on weaker challengers until you’ve earned enough coins to increase your stats without waiting to train at the gym. I wouldn’t necessarily call this game pay-to-win, but it could greatly benefit from some balancing.
