Guide to Punch Hero for iPhone: Tips, tricks, cheats, hints and strategies

Punch Hero is a new boxing game by Gamevil Inc, the makers of such hits as Zenonia and Baseball Superstars 2012. As you might have guessed from the title, Punch Hero is a boxing game, with both arcade elements and role playing elements. You play as a new, rookie boxer who is trying to make it on the amateur, and eventually, professional circuit. It can get VERY difficult at times, but with these tips and tricks, you can get farther than you ever thought you could at this game. Read on!

The fastest way to recover and stand back up after getting knocked down is by tapping the screen with as many fingers as you can at the same time. You can do more than just two fingers – in fact, you can tap the screen with 6 fingers at once if you have large hands, or 8 fingers at once if you have small hands, and not only will you recover much more quickly, but towards the end of a tough round, your quick recovery could buy you one more stand up with the rival boxer.

To eliminate the lengthy backswing that goes with the uppercut (or to a lesser extent, with the hook), as SOON as your fist passes the point of contact with the enemy, do a dodging move to the left or to the right. Your swing will immediately be cut off, and you will do the dodging move just like normal. When using this with the uppercut, this can cut more than a second off of the time spent in a vulnerable position, and when your opponent is seeing stars, you can hit them one or two more times with this.

Another good combination attack is one dodge, one hook, one uppercut. Use the one dodge in the same direction that your opponent is swinging from to set up the attack, then hit him with the hook for a critical hit. Then hit him with the uppercut immediately afterwards for another easy critical hit. When you follow up a hook with an uppercut, the hook’s backswing will disappear and the uppercut will happen more quickly, making this an excellent and deadly combo.
