Based on the Dreamworks movie, starring Hugh Jackman, Real Steel is an underworld fighting Windows Phone 8 game set in the near-future, where 2,000 pound robots fight in a no-holds barred battles to the death. In many respects, Real Steel is a futuristic version of the classic Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots.
The game has been available on XBox Live Arcade, iOS and Android for a while and has now made its way to the Windows Phone Store.
While the game description claims it to be a smash hit with over 6 million downloads across all platforms, it is a little awkward to release a licensed game two years after the movie released and didn’t hit the jackpot in reception.
Also, the app hasn’t impressed most on XBLA and iOS/Android all this while. The Windows Phone version isn’t much different. While it is an interesting game with an engaging gameplay, it’s pretty slow and rough and could do with a major update. The game includes a Tag Team mode which lets you team up two of your favorite mean machines and take them to glory.
The game is available for Windows Phone 8 devices for $0.99 from the Windows Phone Store. There’s no trial version available, which may hurt the game's appeal. If you give it a spin and test your skills in the steel sport, let us know how you like it.
