(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really a full fledged game review as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know whether it’s worth your time/money or not.)
Glowing Gloves claims to be the first ever AR boxing game. (I’m not 100% sure if it is or not, but I couldn’t find much like it on the App Store.) Now, I haven’t really gotten into the whole AR phenomenon that’s going on right now. I’m more of a lazy gamer and don’t like to move around much when gaming. But, I’ve got to say that I’m really impressed with this game! Punches are as simple as tapping or swiping on the screen and you actually move around an open room while fighting you’re opponent. To be honest, I actually felt like I was really boxing while playing! I will say that there are a few hiccups though. The game is totally PVP, so you’ve got to deal with opponents dropping out of matches or like this morning, not finding opponents at all. I would have liked to have seen some sort of Single Player Mode where you can just go up against a bunch of bots. A little better customization system would be nice too. Regardless, I could see this game being really good after a couple updates. So, if you’re looking for something new and don’t mind bobbing & weaving around the room while the dog bites at your ankles (my life), then give Glowing Gloves a shot.
