Some people call boxing ‘The Hurt Business’. The bright Vegas lights and the million dollar pay cheques are a distant dream for most boxers.
Climbing the ranks to the top of the world is never going to be easy, dreams can be shattered with just one punch. Just a handful of fighters will have the will and the skill to drag themselves up from the canvas and keep on fighting.
Big Shot Boxing gives you the opportunity to live out the career of a professional boxer from their debut to retirement. Choose how to train your fighter and manage their progression up the ranks. Will you build up skills and experience fighting journeymen or will you race up the ranks to challenge for the title?
Find your own fighting style, box behind the jab and counter punch or throw caution to the wind and go for the knockout!
What's New in Version 1.2
Thanks for playing and all the feedback!
Here are a few bug fixes and balance tweaks.
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!
I like the simple controls. I don't think a joystick or more buttons would improve the game at all. I do think making the buttons a little larger or a little farther from the edge of the screen would be nice. I have big fingers so occasionally I miss the button because my phone case keeps me from hitting the small buttons. (For the record, my phone case is pretty slim)
I also think that some scouting reports would be a nice addition. It would provide some details about the fighters as well as give the game more depth. I do think Ray Roberts Jr. may be a little OP. Fighting him is really, really difficult on Pro. I often have to rely on some lucky hits to knock him out if I hope to win. I am all for a challenge but he seems quite unfair on Pro difficulty.
Overall, this is a good game with some quirks that can be frustrating. It doesn't need a lot of work but a little would go a long way. Cheers.
I’ve played the game for awhile now and like it’s a amazing game I believe the controls r good and the game itself is fantastic, but Ik you as one of those game developers that make small games that r fun nothing over the top. This game is different I beat the game already and well I don’t understand the point of defending ur title I believe you should add more characters even maybe expand on career so u can make your own character and maybe include differnt outfits and titles and even more upgrades, this game has a lot of potential and I see u reach most of it I’m jut saying what I would like Bc when o beat the game I wanted there to be more to it even tho it was amazing i just wish for like a expansion or somthing I hope to get a response if possible thanks keep up the Amazing games
