Chicago, 22nd September, 2011: Jump Games, a leading international publisher of mobile entertainment apps, also a part of Reliance Entertainment, announced today the launch of the official iOS & Android game of the highly anticipated action film from DreamWorks Pictures, “REAL STEEL.”
“REAL STEEL” stars Hugh Jackman and is directed by Shawn Levy (“Night at the Museum” franchise).
“REAL STEEL” is a gritty, white-knuckle action ride about a former boxer (Hugh Jackman) who, against all odds, gets one last shot at a comeback when he teams up with his estranged son (Dakota Goyo) to build and train the perfect contender for the new high-tech sport of robot boxing.
The game, named ‘Real Steel,’ is an Underworld fighting game set in the near future where 2,000-pound robots fight each other with no rules or regulations. There are eight heavy-duty robots to choose from in the game and each robot has unique fighting styles and signature moves giving the player a chance to choose his preferred robot. The player can use a mix of standard boxing moves, jabs, crosses, hooks, uppercuts, and some specific Underworld moves, such as low blows, knees to stomach, etc. in the fight.
With three difficulty levels – Easy, Medium, and Hard, the game will allow the player to gain experience and gear up for more difficult fights. With every win, the player will receive upgrade tokens, which can be used to upgrade the robots’ characteristics making him stronger. There are various venues where the fights take place – Parking Lot, Zoo, Saloon and Crash Palace.
The game features two play modes – Tournament Mode and Free Sparring Mode. The primary objective of the game is to defeat the robot, Midas, in Tournament Mode to unlock all eight robots. The user has only four robots to select from initially. The rest are locked. Once the player has reached the Crash Palace and defeated Midas in Tournament Mode he will then have access to all eight robots in Free Sparring Mode. In this mode, he will be able to select any robot to fight as, any robot to fight against, any arena to fight in and any difficulty level.
Speaking on the launch of the game, Rohit Sharma, CEO, Reliance Entertainment (Digital business) said, “Jump Games is thrilled to launch the official game for 2011’s most awaited Hollywood action movie Real Steel. It is a well crafted and layered game which will give the players a unique gameplay experience with high quality graphics.

A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, “REAL STEEL” stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.
