Puncho Fighto, an iOS fighting game
It's a 2D fighting game for iPhone and iPad. Bonus: features music from mefi's CarrotAdventure!

I wanted to make kind of an old-school fighting game designed totally for touch screens, so all gestures and swipes and no on-screen buttons (though there is a joystick, unavoidably). I programmed it and one other guy did the graphics. It's the first game for me and the artist so we're living the indie dream right now (making $15).

Here's a low-quality demo video: click
Here's the App Store: click
And here's an unrelated but awesome mega thread of fighting game backgrounds: click

I think/hope it's fairly unique among iOS fighting games. It's at least pretty weird. Here's some promo codes for a free copy:


Thanks, hope somebody out there likes it!

This looks amazing. From the video I don't understand what the "joystick" does.

Thanks a lot grobstein! The joystick lets you walk and block (by holding backwards away from your opponent). I experimented with non-joystick methods of doing that, but couldn't come up with anything simple enough.
