Has a lot of potential
I love the game it’s super addictive and fun I like the way how it’s retro and has an arcade type of style and I have a 4 star because the amount of things you can do is very simple and also I would love it if you guys probably added a storyline i hated this game a few months ago because of how simple and repetitive it was but now after the updates I think a lot has improved and you can improve a lot more there should be more ways to earn money and different venues, you guys don’t have your game in ads on social media which is a reason it isn’t as well known and your game doesn’t push ads all the time like the game BitLife does (because of that it has mixed reviews) and sometimes when there are forced ads you can skip the idea of getting in game currency for watching ads helps both of us and is a good decision there are a few typos I noticed and also some glitches I also noticed the new characters look like Pretty Ricky Conlan, Apollo Creed, Adonis Creed, Rocky Balboa (I think), Mayweather (maybe), Mike Tyson and Connor McGregor which kinda made me chuckle when I noticed currently it’s pretty linear and there’s not a lot to do but there’s always room for improvement, this game will go down as one of the best in the hall of fame if the fans get what they want!
It’s okay...updated; it’s quite good
So I wrote a review when this game first came out and I was pretty sour about the game and really did not talk about the positives. After a few updates and more playing time, I must say this is a very good boxing game. And it’s even more amazing that it’s free and contains very minor advertising. It is rare nowadays to find a developer who truly cares about the audience they are trying to reach instead of the money they are trying to make. And you can tell by they gameplay and design that the developer was not worried about lining his pockets. He was more interested in making a very good game. The controls are quite simple. The gameplay is self explanatory. The addition of fighter bios are great and they almost give you a scouting report of your opponent. The upgrading system is simple yet satisfying. The “randomizer” seems to be a little more balanced now to me (I may have just gotten better lol). The game is slightly realistic. For example, You can’t fight until your 90 years old. Heck, it’s hard to fight at 40 in this game. A few things I would like to see are, a few more boxers obviously and maybe some venue changes. Other than that, if you are looking for a great game at a free price, look no further. Keep up the good work and I look forward to more updates.

Thanks for the feedback and finding the typo :) I'm continuing to tweak the randomiser, Maybe you need to focus on upgrading the characters chin? it is mostly in your favour against most of the opponents. From what I'm seeing on youtube it appears to be behaving as I intended it to.
Really fun arcade style
I wasn’t even looking for a boxing game, I just downloaded this one on a whim. Really fun. They really captured something interesting in “gamifying” boxing. It’s not Punch-Out, in that it’s not just a game about hitting the other guy until his meter runs out. There’s a lot going on under the hood, hidden from the player. The punches that will stun you, the strength of your opponent in taking your punches, rhythm, random chance; all of these things must be calculated when stepping into the ring. You can’t just mash punch and win through sheer force, you really have to box. That’s interesting to consider with how simple the game and its controls are. Jabs don’t do damage, they help measure out distance and push your opponent into a corner. Blocking takes a step back, like a dodge, but takes you out of range, unless the opponent takes a wild shot, in which case you can counter with a devastating uppercut. Like I said, it’s all about timing and rhythm. Knocking a guy out doesn’t just mean emptying his health bar, it means hitting the opponent when he’s open, but at the same time managing not to take too many hits yourself. Heck, even matches that end up in a decision are fun to win, as you spend each rounds recovery considering how ahead or behind you are.
Entertaining, stimulating, challenging!

Wow, thank you for the amazing review! There are a few people out there that really 'got' what I was going for with this game and you hit the nail on the head. Your review makes up for all the 1 star reviews.
