Box2Glory was born when a football manager game addict got interested in boxing. He decided to find a boxing manager game…and he found nothing. Box2Glory took several years to make with a full time job in IT but it is as close as the boxing game has come to football manager yet. I even spend 3 years in a boxing gym for research and fell in love with the sport.
You start with a small gym and budget. You can go and sign some bum off the street or try to find some terrible pro that is willing to give you a chance at managing his sinking career. As you make money your gym grows. More boxers, and more importantly better boxers give you a chance. You compete against other human managers and AI.
Did I mention that game has AI? All boxers are driven by AI. You are responsible at getting them a good fight with a match up that they can win and also give them a fight plan. They might follow a fight plan, but they all have personalities that might have them deviate from it. And Box2Glory has the most in-depth strategy choices that exist in any boxing/mma simulation. If you want to fine tune minute details of strategy you will not be disappointed.
There are different types of personalities that boxers have. Some you want to be forceful with, some you want to be gentle with. So you want to reason with while others just want you to ignore. You issue press releases before fights they have affect on moral their opponents. But if you say the wrong thing it may backfire on you. Boxers make friends and enemies among themselves and managers. All this has an effect on the game. Boxers with high ambition will get upset if you don’t move them up the ranks faster, boxers with high flare will taunt their opponents, boxers with aggressive personality will forget about your instructions in a heat of the battle.
The game is turn based with a new turn every day. Thus there is no advantage to managers that have more time on their hands. If you have 10 minutes a day you will do fine. Boxers will age and retire, some become trainers, refs, scouts. The game is played continuously as times goes by as each day in RL is a week in a game.
And while you keep on winning fight, have a close eye on your finances. Can you really afford this 4 star trainer from America right now, or that superstar scout? Should I trade my star boxer for some needed cash? And once you become really big you can open your very own boxing academy and create your very own boxers.
There are many other things to do in a game that I would not go into in this press release. The game occupies a very niche space. Generally boxing fans are fans of action games. But here I give you a very detailed boxing game for much more strategy inclined. I know there are going to be some takers who will give it a try…it is totally free to play.
