Animal Boxing 


When I saw Animal Boxing for such a low price, I did not expect a lot from it. How good could a boxing game on the Nintendo DS done with animals? Destineer has surprised me with this little hand held video game. First off you have to turn the Nintendo DS upside down to play this game. This feels weird at first, but after a few matches it feels very natural. The touch screen is used to determine where your players punches will go. Make no bones about it Animal Boxing is a boxing video game. There is a lot of punching in the face. Hit the characters enough times and their faces will start to show damage. Nothing graphic, but those swollen eyes tell the tale.

The visuals are decent for the Nintendo DS. There is quite a range of animals in Animal Boxing. With that said, while you go through the championships you will run across some of the same looking animals. Destineer also made sure to include a lot of variety for the players as well. There are male and female characters in Animal Boxing. They dress in boxing attire. To me this did not reach the level of enticement to lust.

I really like the special effect sounds in Animal Boxing. For some reason the music reminds me of Rocky. It is not the same ensemble but it has a real boxing feel to it, like Rocky does. There is a storyline that involves boxing. I found no offensive sounds or words while playing Animal Boxing on the Nintendo DS.

Destineer could have cheaped out in the replay department, and stuck with the unique kind of boxing. They choose a different path. You will spend weeks defeating all of the boxers earning championship after championship. That is just one mode of a couple in Animal Boxing. You can also take on friends in this game, and that is where a lot of strategy comes into play. If you like boxing games, you will find your money well spent on Animal Boxing. I purchased this game, and feel I got my moneys worth.

The controls in Animal Boxing work great. I love being able to jab, uppercut, and hook with the touch screen. The computer animals are pretty easy to beat as long as you keep your hands up and take your time whittling them down. Hit them 2-3 times, and then block. Repeat this and you will usually win in the first two rounds. The animals do get more difficult as the game progresses.

I can see Animal Boxing becoming a great game on the Wii someday. I am hoping they make a port to that system. Families can use Animal Boxing to talk about violence, and boxing. The main lesson in this DS game is to hit them before they hit you. I hope more boxing games control like Animal Boxing.
