It’s always seemed a little weird to me that we don’t have more boxing games on the App Store, as the few that have come out have all worked so great with touchscreen and gesture controls. Well, a new game got posted to our upcoming games forum titled Mean Streets which takes Punch Out mechanics combined with swipe controls. Mix in an art style that seems vaguely reminiscent of Team Fortress 2, and I’m totally onboard. Check out the trailer:
The developers mentioned in our forums that they’re on the hunt for a “strong audience looking for more substance in actual combat scenarios," and I hope they find it. This is the exact kind of thing I want on my iPhone. Be sure to add Mean Streets to your watch list, as we’re going to be following this game closely.
