Universal Boxing Manager
Winter Wolves Games today released Universal Boxing Manager 1.3.8, an update to its boxing manager simulation game that adds a redesigned right-panel with detailed statistics. The latest release allows players as well as the computer to 'throw in the towel' to avoid serious injury. The game is priced at $25, and requires Mac OS X (specific system requirements were unavailable).
Players who continue to fight even when their boxer is being badly beaten can receive serious penalties to that boxer's skills which can compromise their career. Each punch received reduces some of the boxer's speed skill, which determines how good he is at avoiding an opponent's blows. The update also features better round scoring with ratings determined by effective damage, rather than the number of punches landed or missed.
