Become a rookie boxing manager with something to prove, working to establish a stable of talented fighters to take on the world – in LEATHER®: Tactical Boxing Management.

Recruit promising young amateurs, established professionals or retired veterans, challenge favourable opponents, and train your fighters for upcoming bouts. Fights are won or lost depending on the strategy and tactics you devise, so it’s crucial to analyse both your combatant and your opponent to create the correct fight plan. Winning bouts will move your boxer up their respective weight division rankings, to eventually challenge for the world championship belt itself.

But the boxing world is a slippery one; losing bouts will delay your ability to challenge others, ruining your momentum and allowing other promising stars to challenge your position. Suffering injuries during bouts will lower your boxer’s subsequent fitness, meaning they will be less effective in the next bout unless given time to rest and recuperate. Boxers you seek revenge upon might shift weight division, foiling your plans for immediate payback.

Different boxers peak at different stages during their careers, and as time passes your boxers will age and their abilities will wane. Young, fresh-faced opponents will rise through the ranks to challenge your dominance, and wily old campaigners will battle on long passed their best, eager to show they’ve still got it.

The path to glory is not always clear, and it is up to you how you form your fighters’ careers. Do you ambitiously rush them up through the rankings – challenging as high as you can each time, or do you favour a steadier approach – building your boxer’s skills over more contests? Do you favour the breathless punch exchanges of the lower weight divisions, or the thudding power of the heavier ones? Will you dominate in one weight division for a decade, or will you shift your fighters from division to division, capturing as many titles as possible before their skills begin to wane? Do you allow your recruits to retire undefeated at the peak of their powers, or do you keep ushering them on for one more tilt at the big time, long after their abilities have deteriorated?

The choice is yours; there’s no end-game in LEATHER®. The only definition of glory is your own.

Honest Personal Review

So, I won’t mimic everyone’s reviews about how you can build a gym/team the way you want and all of the ins and outs of the game. I agree with 95% of what I read after downloading and playing the game.

My review is more just about how I appreciate a game centered on just boxing. As a fan of both Boxing and MMA I can understand why people would want this developer to make a MMA game. But after reading their responses about how they’re a bigger fan of Boxing and wouldn’t do the MMA game justice I’m glad I saw that. Personally, I prefer boxing to mma by a wide margin. To me boxing seems like more of a SPORT. It’s a combat sport for sure, but in boxing with the standing 8 count I feel like it’s based more to show off your skills at the sport of boxing. While I wouldn’t equate mma to “human cockfighting”, it definitely seems more barbaric as the ref is only there to stop one guy from killing the other. Add that with the long drawn out times on the ground and it becomes less about sport and more about just hurting people. No MMA fight can compare to something like Ward Vs Gatti 1 in my opinion. And for a developer to stick to just boxing is something I applaud

Thanks for the review. The money-hunting side of me wants to learn more about MMA to produce the equivalent game for it, however considering just how long it took me to build Leather I think it's a complete non-starter, plus building the updates to this alone is quite the effort, never mind adding more onto my plate. For me boxing has always been easier to just "get".

A definite “Sign Me Up”

I’m a huge fan of sports games but many of them requires me to play the game with other real life players (which I avoid those games). So it’s quite rare to find a single player sports game. But when I found this game and downloaded the game, I didn’t regret it. My favorite thing about the game that it is simple to learn the ins and outs of the game within a couple of minutes. Another thing that I love about the game is that you can play the game as you want to. If you want to build up a gym out of $10,000 dollars, you can, if you want to have a game where you play as a YMCA that has 1,000,000,000 but only one boxer but a boatload of staff, you can too. I also wish that the creator of the game would release something like this but it would be based on MMA. Overall, I really love the game and I have no doubt that I will download the full version.

Developer Response ,

Thanks King Edward. I've had a few people ask me about the possibility of making an MMA version, however I'm not much of an MMA fan, so I don't really understand the strategy and tactics surrounding the sport - I doubt I could do it justice. I also think a proper MMA game would require a team of combat experts to form the fight engine correctly; as one guy I can make a boxing game, but I think you need a blend of martial arts disciplines to make a similar level of MMA game.

Does your progress convert to the full version

I love this game and have had a blast with the first year at first I had a bug where I couldn’t hire more than one coach but that got fixed. I wanted to know if there was a way to convert my save file from the lite version to the full version, if so I will definitely get the full version.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review. The lite and full versions are two separate apps, and iOS system security prevents me from making data available between the two, so I'm afraid there isn't a way to migrate the data - sorry.
