While flying back from CES a few weeks ago I was able to catch a flick on the flight back to my home state of PA. I was about to doze off on the plane when I opened one eye quick to check out the in-flight entertainment. It was Real Steel with Hugh Jackman and Dakota Goyo. The movie takes place in the near distant future where human boxing has been completely replaced with the more popular robot boxing. A pretty cool high tech remote controlled boxing robot was at the command and disposal of Wolverine himself. Awesome if you ask me. I’m a dork for movies like that, what can I say? So when I saw Jump Games made it available for my favorite operating system in the whole world, I jumped right on it and had to write a post about it to share with the rest of our Android fans.
Gizmodo says, “game looks fun as hell.”
iPhoneappreview says, “Real Steel is a solid winner.”
The future, robots, fighting and more! What else is there to say? So go download it already! Just kidding, here’s a little premise on the game itself first. Real Steel for Android allows you to enter the underworld of fighting high-tech machines weighing in at 2,000 lbs and battling it to the death all on your smartphone or tablet. It’s a new age Street Fighter in your pocket! The game offers two different play modes, “Tournament” and “Free Sparring”. Tournament mode allows you challenge a whole roster of bots while Free Sparring Mode gives you quick fights against the bot of your choice. Your goal is to unlock all the cool robots you can by putting a beat down and whoopin on Midas. The game will run you a buck but it’s well worth the game play. Ready for the challenge?
