Description: This is a workout plus memorization game, where the player must punch the pads, in the correct order that each combination is called out over 3 rounds. At the end of the workout, your score will be added to the leaderboard. The faster you throw correct combinations and the more punches you throw in total, the higher your score will be. You will need to memorize the combinations called out and throw them as fast as you can in the correct order.

You will receive points for each punch, based on how quickly that punch was thrown. If you complete the combination correctly, you will receive bonus points based on how many punches there were. If you get a punch wrong, then you will not gain any bonus points for that combination. If you successively get combinations correct, then the combo number will go up and if you get one wrong, then the combo number will go down.

Review: If you are willing to take the time to get into ‘Punch Pad Workout’ you will find it is better in terms of gameplay and options than it is on appearance and presentation. This is a boxing fitness simulator and you will be training with a poorly animated 3D character and playing mini-games that are pretty exhausting and do leave you feeling as if you have had a good workout. If you are willing to use this app more than once and get into it (look past its flaws) you will get your money’s worth. If you are not sure it is something you will use more than once or twice I would wait for a sale before giving it a go.
