Using the on-screen controls, you move side to side with the directional arrows and throw punches with the “L” and “R” buttons. Down arrow allows you to block a punch and the up arrow with a right or left punch is an upper-cut.

Overall

A very fun game. Graphics are top notch. At times the controls seems a bit unresponsive, which can be frustrating when your in the midst of a bout, but otherwise the game is a real winner. The game is free and ad supported, but the ads aren’t intrusive while you are playing. You can purchase Rockcash which allows you to buy things in the “Store” to help you fight, like a 3-pack of Power Punches.
