FaceFighter is a rather light applications coming in at 10.8MB in size. This is not bad considering the application has terrific graphics and photo editor on-board that morphs your pictures into an opponent you can beat the heck out of, including great sounds and user interface. On initial load up you will get to fight a character called “Big Ben” or create your own. I started with Big Ben to get an idea of what I am dealing with. You can choose up to four levels of game play. Appy Slappy, Easy, Medium, and Hard. I chose the Easy setting and proceeded to duke it out. On the card tonight is technogog vs. Big Ben.

After you load your character, press the “Fight” button for a no holds barred cyber fight, Kung Fu style. Big Ben wasted no time trying to put the smack down on technogog. Four button’s (Two on each side of the screen), provide punches, kicks and blocks and you will need to use all four to whack your opponent into submission.

Taking on Big Ben, I decided to throw some kicks and connected with a foot face plant and immediately laughed after watching Big Ben take my foot in the face, leaving behind a black and blue mug. Poor Ben got his grill colorized.

Now the fight is full on, punches and kicks flying around like two warriors fighting to the death. Big Ben was far from finished, after he ate my foot, he countered with some blows and kicks and was holding his own. Too bad for him, I connect with a combo and took his teeth out.

Big Ben, with his teeth kicked out, turned up the heat and came back with feet and fist’s flying. He wasn’t going down easily. He jacked me up pretty good with a kick and punch and started gaining the upper hand.

Actually, laughing at the game (LMAO) I was getting my butt stomped and Big Ben landed a few good hits for a KO against technogog. Not that the game is that hard on an easy setting, it was so funny to watch the action I just couldn’t hang with the tough guy!

Now that I got schooled in Kung Fu by Big Ben, let’s take a look at how easy it is to import a picture and fight anyone you want to. To import a foe into your game click “Make Foe” this will pull up the picture editor. You can import pictures from your camera roll instantly or use your library to import the desired photo. Pinch or stretch screen to scale and or rotate the picture to match the eyes and mouth outline and that’s it! Now you’re ready to fight anyone!

Appy Entertainment, Inc., has created a really kick ass fight simulation that combines cartoon splash screens with hi-res action figures for a unique and unusually funny experience. The game is fun to play and will keep you laughing as long as you decide play it. People around you will actually wonder why you are having so much fun with your iPhone to the point they move in closer to get a look at the action.

The user interface is very easy to figure out, the sounds and graphics are great. The entertainment value is excellent and overall value of cost of ownership is outstanding. At $0.99 at Apple iTunes, this is a steal for such good clean fun, okay maybe not so clean but definitely fun! I happened to import a photo of my wife and she wasn’t so amused with my kicking and bashing her face into a pulp, but boy was it fun for me! (LOL) Like a good sport, she asked to import my picture, now I know how she feels. Now she enjoys giving me a pummeling without ever laying a hand on me. It was funny and gratifying at the same time.

FaceFighter is an oddly strange and funny application. Appy Entertainment pulls off a super fun game with exciting game play with exceptional value! Well done Appy! Over-all this application kicks butt and I recommend anyone to download this.
