Android App Video Review: Super KO Boxing

by Erik Fikkert

Boxing games are surprisingly hard to find for mobile phones and my guess is that it’s due to the controls. Touchscreens can complicate things immensely and can really make a mess of an otherwise decent game. But this isn’t the case with Super KO Boxing.

The game is obviously designed around the same concept that powered the best boxing game of all time, Punchout. This game for the NES defined boss battles and challenged players to make it to the top. The same goes for this app. Each fight is against a different boss that has his own strengths and weaknesses. Some may unleash a fury of punches while others will clean your clock with one hard hit. The controls are handled really well in the game and there was never a time where I didn’t feel in control. It gets very difficult in later levels and I have to admit I had an amazingly hard time beating it. Some of the bosses will whomp on you before you even know what hit you. Overall, the game is an excellent arcade app and definitely worth a look. Check it out.
