Italian game developer Winter Wolves Studio has released
Universal Boxing Manager 3D, an updated version of their boxing management game for Mac OS X and Windows. You can download a demo; the full game costs US$24.95.
Universal Boxing Manager 3D isn’t an arcade-style boxing game; instead, it’s a boxing manager simulation. You can manage up to six different boxers in 17 different weight categories, each with different statistics and skills. You search for new talents, arrange fights, buy new training tools, hire doctors and help your boxers in the ring by suggesting tactics that will let them win against their opponents.
While the game still uses pre-rendered graphics for the fight sequences, Winter Wolves Studio said they’re working on a full 3D fight capability now. As it is, you can see boxers in 3D in the Manage Boxers screen.
System requirements call for Mac OS X V10.2 or later, 600MHz or faster CPU, 64MB RAM, OpenGL graphics card with at least 8MB VRAM.
