Fun game, reminds me abit of Super Punch Out. You play a boxer and you can control side to side movement, left/right punches, types of punch, and blocking. It can be challenging at times, but with good timing, a bit of strategy, and carefully chosen upgrades, you can really tear through this game quickly. As of this review with 2.8 hours played, I've 100%'d the achievements already (including the 4 secret ones) so I'd imagine you'd get a similar amount of time out of it give or take a few hours. I don't have any other games like it, so I may go back and play it somemore just for fun.

Lots of fun though, recommended if you can get it for very cheap or in a bundle. I was lucky enough to be given mine!

Like Punch-Out? This isn't like Punch-Out.

Beast Boxing Turbo does not use the usual 3 K.O. for a TKO. This game uses the fighting formula for winning a fight(I.E. 2 KO's).

You and your opponent have regenerating health bars and stamina. Taking a blow reduces the maximum amount of health you can have indicated by the red bar. Stamina dictates your power and how many punches you can throw before you tire yourself out. Tiring yourself out is not good because your speed will drop, making your punches and movement slower.

The story has 4 leagues from the easy to beat to opponents that are able to react faster than you.

For those looking for a bit of a challenge normal difficulty does not give that. I beat all my opponents with some relative ease on normal.

After each fight you get coins which are used to purchase equipment and upgrading your stats. Once you beat an opponent they are available on exhibition. This mode allows you to farm for less coins but still a good way to grind for them should you need coins to fight the next opponent.

I really find this game to be very fun. Kinda short on Normal but fun nontheless.

Words not enough to convince? Here's a video of me showing it off: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXTgTpgmqTQ

A decent, easy boxing game. It kind of looks like a Punch-Out‼ derivative, but it isn't really about pattern recognition the same way. Too bad Beast here is *really* is easy – even the hardcore difficulty mode didn't really prove difficult to run through. It's all in the jabs.

Super fun. Nice characters.

This game has simply control likes "Divekick" and amazingly enjoyable gameplay. If you have this game from bundle, you should play it or if you hesitate about buying this game, I would prefer you to buy this game immediately. It really worths my money.

Super Punch Out!! always seems to be forgotten by people when listing off the SNES's best titles. To be fair it's up against some stiff competition, but to this day SPO is still an incredibly fun and polished gem that has sadly faded from most people's memories. The developers of Beat Boxing Turbo clearly remember it though, with their game being clearly and highly inspired by Nintendo's boxing puzzle game, with a bit of Fight Night mixed in for a colorful arcade feel that reminded me why I miss SPO so much. It's in no way a perfect replacement, but it's an admirable effort and a surprisingly fun time!

So you want to box? Well tough luck, human, there's no place for your kind in the ring! Under a disguise though no one would stop you, and thus you enter the world of beat boxing in an attempt to make a name for yourself and prove humans have a place in the sport.

As the name suggests, this isn't straight boxing, but somewhere between the over the top feel of the before mentioned Punch Out and a simple arcade recreation of the sport. Your collection of moves is small and the way to utilize them equally limited, but you're given just enough variation to be able to plan out various moves, and counter the attacks of your beastly enemies (which true to form all have their own special attacks and fighting styles). It's easy to learn and honestly pretty easy to master as well, which actually becomes an issue after a point as fights become cake walks and the CPU's way to counteract this is to rely on cheap hits and forcing you into corners that never feel particularly fair. It's disappointing the difficulty fluctuates from such extremes, but when it's not beating you in the face without remorse the ease of conquering your opponents never became hugely unsatisfying.

As a budget priced game there have been some obvious cuts and as a whole the amount of content here is slim. Perhaps most disappointing is the absence of any multiplayer mode, which seems an obvious addition that could have extended the hour or so story mode a lot further. Other issues arise in the clunky combat, that isn't a problem generally but on higher difficulty levels leads to a lot of cheap KO's. Some recycled character models/frames are a bit tacky as well, but the cartoon artstyle mostly makes up for the corners that have been cut off the presentation.

Irregardless, Beast Boxing Turbo is worth recommending if only for how unique it is to the platform, and for how fun it is while it lasts. It's far from the classic that is Super Punch Out!!, but as that is a sequel itself perhaps it's only a matter of waiting for Beast Boxing 2 for it to reach that point.

In the meantime I'll be over here punching pigs in the face.

Beast Boxing Turbo is actually very similar to the likes of Punch-Out!! in many ways.

The story revolves around the protagonist Char, who is secretly a human fighting in a beast tournament. Said tournament doesn't allow humans to participate in it. With the help of her mentor, she masters boxing. And that's the extent of the story.

The gameplay makes up for this, though. It works very much like Punch-Out!!; There's hooks, jabs, uppercuts, all of that. If you relentlessly punch a monster in the face, you'll get tired and your punches won't be as effective.

The game itself can be a challenge if you're playing on a higher difficulty. Please, if you buy this, do yourself the favor of playing on the hardest difficulty and then New Game+.

One problem I have with the game is that the monsters lack a colorful personality. One of the many things I liked about Punch-Out!! is that the fighters' personality made all of them stand out. That isn't in this game.

Not only that, but there's no multiplayer. That's a completely missed opportunity.

However, for the price tag, I can't say that this game is bad. In fact, for the 5 dollars you pay (unless you got it from a bundle), it's actually pretty worth it.

In summary, Beast Boxing Turbo is a great albeit short game. I recommend buying it when you have the chance.

Fun game but way too short, has New Game+ at least.

The AI learns from you and you have to learn their strategies too and the game definitely gets harder but the skill ceiling is still pretty low after you get the hang of it.

I was given this game by a friend who hadn't played it. He also gave me a bunch of hilariously bad games, so I figured this would be one of those.

Nope. Not at all. I haven't gotten too far in, but the mechanics are fluid and the game runs great. Love the music and art style. The graphics aren't mind-blowing or anything but the fighting is a lot of fun, and the upgrading and equipment keeps things fresh. The writing, where there is writing, is well done.

I anticipate putting a lot of free time into this game. :) Definitely would recommend if you're interested in a boxing game that can be played casually or with a lot of intense strategy, depending on difficulty.

Story: BEAST
Gameplay: BOXING
Graphics: TURBO

This is a game where you play as a human girl from the slums who wants to break racial prejudice in monster-only boxing league. I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO TELL YOU HOW GREAT THIS PREMISE IS.

Boxing. Monsters. You click buttons, and then your fists go punch punch, and then you hit the monsters and they make silly sounds. I could not possibly be any happier about this arrangement.

While this game is not ambitious, the execution is awesome. Funny dialog, great monster modeling, bad-♥♥♥ skull armor upgrades, and enjoyable, if not very deep, arcade boxing combat. This is a great example of a successful game vignette -- it's brief, but everything provided is well polished and serves to explore the game's premise.

I love this game. The three hours of game play reflects two complete story playthrough, mostly not by me. The first game was a hotseat game where I swapped out with a number of friends on each fight. The second playthrough was mostly one friend that decided to play everything again on hard mode. I am content with this experience as it stands, and probably won't ever play this game again, unless there's people to show it to.

Atriplemonsterplus, am completely satisfied with this purchase.

In Beast Boxing Turbo, You play as Char, A human boxer dressed as a beast to enter the beast boxing league. You fight through 5 leagues. Each league has 3 fighters. Which mean the total enemy you're gonna encounter in this game is only 15. This game isn't that hard. You can upgrade your stats, buy stuff to make your character stronger.

I wish the game is harder and longer because this game is really fun. I'll give it 6/10.

Much fun, smashing beast endlessly...
12 Different Enemy(or Opponent), all have different fighting style, classic punch-out like fight system(counter, dodge, smash).
Boxing game with stats are always awesome.
Gain money from matches to improve your stats and equipment.
Control is very simple and comfortable, Good Graphic(for this kind of small and epic game), great sounds, good gameplay.
Rule is just bit different from real boxing. Have Best of (?) Round system, no knockdown, have HP.
And story is very short. Maybe Game is endless, after hard difficulty there is plus1 difficulty.
Spent 3 hour for All Achievement.
Worth to Play.
