Today’s Beast Game Idea: Beast Boxing Turbo

I’ve always said that the PC needs more first-person boxing games, and so I must extend my gratitude to Good Hustle, developers Beast Boxing Turbo. It’s not hard to guess where they take the game: you box lizards, you box trolls, you box skeletons, you box demons – all in a lovely hand-drawn art style. It’s just about beasts getting a thump up the bracket, basically. And they look good while they’re doing it. I am not sure how “turbo” relates to it, but I am guessing it’s one of those suffixes that are automatically added to games dependent on genre, without any real reason.

Anyway, you’re probably definitely going to want to see skeletons get punched with bright-red boxing gloves, so there’s a video below for that. The game will be released “soon”.

    Looks like Punch Out!! x Wii Sports Boxing only worse.

    As someone who hates fantasy I can say that looks quite interesting.

    I wish more devs were willing to think outside the box like this.

        You don’t need to canvas opinions; these puns are definitely ropey.

    Is there any first person boxer where you use two mice?

      This is GENIUS.

      I was just thinking that it would seem quite unsatisfying to play a game like this just clicking away at the mouse buttons….But two mice = move the arms? That makes it sound not just playable, but stupidly fun.

      Why *aren’t* there any games that use two mice? Why is that not a thing? (Maybe there are and I just don’t know it?)

    Shame that at 17s when you get knocked out, the viewpoint doesn’t fall backwards when the arms do. Maybe they can still fix that. Looks fun tho!

    Ahem. www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHKnU-YkOE4

    But seriously, I love the art style. A much better illustrated look than Borderlands’, which is kinda fugly.

      What happened with proper sci-fi movies anyways?

      Last thing i saw, that was plausible, was Prometheus, and that’s the first since… forever. :S

        In my case, the name Arena didn’t ring any bells, but as soon as I’ve seen ‘Lt. Commander Ivanova’ in there, it has all come to me. Funnily enough, I hadn’t really forgotten about this movie, but for some reason my memories of it had been mixed with Robot Jox, which, sure enough, is listed on the related videos column as well.

    Anyone else find it a bit weird that it’s normal boxing gloves in this spikey, monster-filled world and not big spikey gauntlets? Bit strange, IMO.

      If you consider “flaming” to be “normal”, i guess…

        I was just looking at the screen shot. The Bright red boxing gloves. Surely this should be spikey knuckle fist-fighting?

      Hey, I’m the dev – more glove variations are available in the new gear system, which I added in since working on this video last month. No spikes! But there’s cool stuff in there nonetheless.

    “(…) monsters fight for fame and fortune. You are the first human to try.” I am guessing the protagonist tricked the dumb troll in charge of registration by showing him those green arms. ^_^

    I just had massive flashbacks to Power Punch 2, the Psuedo Sequel to Punch Out!! on the NES
