Soundboxing

Soundboxing is a single player boxing game where you’ll get to pick your own music and punch to the beat. Face to face with robot challengers, you’ll be using your agility to quickly but accurately punch spheres flying towards you at varying speeds. Make your own beatmaps to use for yourself, your friends, or for other people online to benefit from and enjoy.

Fitness Potential

Create your own beats from your favorite Youtube music videos or play a round with user-designed beat patterns as you get a full body workout. You’ll be using your obliques and abs to turn as you throw punches and you’ll be using your legs and thighs to provide stability in a game that will keep you on your toes. Your upper body and chest will benefit from punching in a way that will confuse and challenge all your muscles, making this a virtual fat burning powerhouse.
