A Boxing game for the Macintosh that was praised for its "stunning human-like motion" back in 1992. Real boxers were video taped and analyzed until they animated movements precisely with stick figures. They then superimposed 3D-polygon shapes on these stick figures to achieve a more realistic simulation of human movement.

4D Boxing lets you create a boxer and take that boxer from the 51st rank in his weight class to become the new champion. In order to achieve that goal, you need to fight in Main Event competitions against other boxers within three ranks. Each competition allows your boxer to train in attributes like speed, power and stamina. By challenging better-ranked boxers you move up the roster more quickly, but get less chances to train. Since your boxer's career has a max. of 45 bouts after which he or she retires, a strategy element is added to the game.

For controls use the numerical keypad (directions) and the shift key for punching. You can even taunt your enemy by pressing return and the numerical keypad.

Just updated the description to give this fine boxing game some more attention - anyone in posession of the original game? Reuploading it would be nice. Great game to play on one of the LC Macs btw Smile
