Fight As The Best Boxer In The World On Your iPhone In Manny Pacquiao: Pound For Pound

One of my first favorite portable video games was a boxing game on — of all platforms — a Casio calculator (that’s right — you think your life’s tough, try living in a world where the most entertaining handheld a kid can play with is a calculator). The third-person perspective of Manny Pacquiao: Pound for Pound, a new iOS title that’s expected to be released soon (pending approval by Apple), reminds me of that game. But with features like swiping for attacks, customizable outfits and being able to level attributes, it’s bound to be, well, a knockout.

In case you’re not a boxing fan, Manny Pacquiao is widely considered to be, pound-for-pound, one of (or the) the best boxers in the world, hence the name. The game lets you use some of his signature moves as you battle through bosses, increasing attributes as you level up. The graphics look pretty cool too; pity there’s no two-player mode though.

MP: PfP will be $3 when it finally arrives at the App Store. Check out the (really short) clip here.
