Glu Mobile has launched an HD iPad version of its Super KO Boxing 2 iPhone game, offering cartoon pugilistic thrills on Apple’s tablet.
The game sees you playing as the K.O. Kid, tasked with beating the bejaysus out of 15 opponents, each with their own quirks and special moves. There’s a choice of Circuit, Challenge and Endurance modes, with achievements awarded for your progress to unlock extra content as you go.
The game is reminiscent of classic Nintendo boxing series Punch-Out!!, as you view the action from behind the K.O. Kid as he swings, ducks and dodges. A modern twist is added with the game’s use of in-app payments for ‘Roid Rage’ power-ups, which give you an angry advantage over your rivals.
