The Contender: Fight of the Century

By The Frosty Pop Corps Inc.

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


* Please note: You can use multiple fingers to tap to get up! So tap fast with as many as you can! Also pause menu can be found in top left of gameplay screen next to timer. *

In a world you cannot understand, the ring is your salvation. You are, The Contender.

Get rocked in this 80s throwback to arcade boxing champions of yesteryears. The Contender is a less-is-more homage to classic 8-bit console (boxing) games that will, ahem, stretch your limits!

With deeply flawed control limitations, you will burst into tears of joy and passive rage as you walk into multiple left hand jabs with your stiff upper lip and stretch your arms across the ring to land your punches. And don't forget to tap furiously to avoid being knocked out!

Float like a butterfly, sting like a b... no chance.

Needs improvements...

This is a nice app to play. I like the way it keeps up with your record, the pixelated look, and the health regen in between each round. However, the cons outway the pros. The game is extremely difficult to play. You can't hit and move at the same time like actual boxers do. Also the buttons are way to small for my fingers and on occasions the game says I lost a match when I knocked down my opponent and won most rounds. So basically I was cheated out of a win. It could also go better with custom rings, fighters, and can challenge people online for titles and stuff. And it would be nice if the AI opponent changed so often and they all had background info about them like their records. Lastly, the opening of the app makes me think there's going to be some sort of story mode but let's me down when there isn't.

Great Game!

I've been playing this game for the past couple weeks and it's a really fun! If you are looking for a nostalgic and fun 8-bit game, this is a good choice! A few critiques I would like to throw out are:

Custom fighters, different AI difficulty levels, more colors to the location and fighters, more arenas and more people in the crowds as you gain more wins.

Overall I'm giving it 4 stars because although it's a pretty good game, I think it can be improved to be one amazing, 8-bit fighting game.

I like it, but..

The AI need to be harder or there needs to be a harder difficulty. Also having different rings would be nice. There's so much you could do with this game. Also I don't understand the purpose of tapping in between rounds???? I don't get what that's about. I paid to get rid of the ads. The game brings back nostalgia.
