Game Description:
4D Sports Boxing is a 3D boxing computer game of the 4D Sports series, with motion capture animation, developed by Distinctive Software, Inc. (DSI) from Vancouver under their secondary trade name Unlimited Software. Its first version, 1.0, was published by Mindscape, Incorporated, on 1991-06-15. The game was released for PC, Apple Macintosh, Atari ST, Amiga and Fujitsu FM Towns Marty. The Macintosh version has slightly improved graphics, but a smaller screen size.

The game features stylized boxers in polygon-based graphics, composed of triangles, some with names suggestive of non-fictional people. All opponent boxers have different fighting styles' some prefer to attack, some to counter-attack. Some (like Smokin' Joe Blow) have great punching power, some have amazing speed; The Champ has nearly perfect attributes. The game is regarded as one of earliest, and possibly first, examples of a 3D head-to-head fighting game. During the game, the player can choose which attributes to improve in his avatar: speed, power or stamina. While fighting, different tactics and strategies can be used, like all-out attacks, counter attacks, dodging, etc. Sometimes fights end in a unanimous decision, even 15 round fights. Draws and disqualifications are also possibilities.

A second version, 2.0, was published in February 1992. Version 2.0 was the "Electronic Arts" version which had different music, introductions, and pupils added to the boxers' eyes. The FM Towns Marty version was based on Version 2 with better sound.

Personal Notes:
Forgot Nintendo and 3D games this is 4D!

Beat 50 boxers in your career on the way to facing and beating the champ!

I love this old game - you should give it a try :)

I still remember the first time I got really far I was ranked second - and I kept getting the message "your boxer is getting old" I thought nothing of it - but then when I finally went to fight "The Champ" - I got the "your boxer has now retired"....I was all sad. :(
