Shoot Pro Wrestling game for iOS ( iPhone & iPad ), Android, and Amazon Fire is OUT NOW!
Shoot Pro Wrestling Game puts you in control as General Manager of your own pro-wrestling promotion, in this fantasy wrestling simulation game.
Each wrestling promotion in the game has a stats screen that gives details of finance, roster, and past events. Each promotion is trying to increase ratings for events and increase profits.
As well as your events, the competing wrestling promotions are also putting on events of their own. Charts of the Top 10 TV Wrestling Shows and of the Top 10 PPV Wrestling Events let you see how each company’s five most recent TV shows and PPVs compare. Which company is winning the wrestling ratings war?
Each month, your wrestling company (or fed), and your two competitors, has four weekly live events that are broadcast on network TV, and a live PPV event that’s exclusively for a pay-per-view audience.
Every wrestler in the game has a detailed stats page giving information about their current skills and status, and a history of their last five matches. Every wrestler in the game ages, improves their skills, loses their skills, and eventually retires, to be replaced by a rookie. Wrestlers also move from company to company as their careers progress, or sometimes find themselves out of work and on the free agents list.
No professional wrestler is invincible, even if they sometimes seem that way, and if they take too much of a beating in a fight, an injury may occur that could potentially put them out of action for months. Of course, some wrestlers are more injury prone than others, so you need to pay careful attention when hiring new talent. Who wants to pay a wrestler a monthly wage for being injured all the time, and how will you put on good shows when your roster is stripped down by wrestler injuries?
Each wrestler in the game also has their popularity and their personal character. Talking to your talent agent about a wrestler can tell you if they are suited to their role, and how their popularity stacks up against the best in the World.
For every TV show and PPV event, you must select a venue and set ticket prices for admission. In addition, for PPV events, you must set the cost for people to buy the event on pay-per-view. After every event, you get to see a breakdown of the finances. Did you sell out the venue, or did your high ticket prices put people off? As you put on more wrestling events over time, you can look at the history of the last five TV or PPV events to see how they compare. Should you consider booking a larger venue for your next event, or should you lower ticket prices to try to compensate for falling ratings?
For every wrestling match, of every show, you must book the wrestlers, the type of match, and whether titles will be on the line. However, once the match gets underway, it’s all down to the skill of the wrestlers. Who will be the winner?
Shoot Pro Wrestling Game offers fully simulated text-based shoot fights between wrestlers (singles and tag team) with play-by-play commentary. Who wins the match is down to skill and wrestling ability (though a bit of strength and muscle sure helps). You can also see what sort of reaction the wrestlers are drawing from the crowd.
For every TV show and PPV event, you need to put together the best card of wrestling matches to sell the most tickets and make the most money. However, you also need to think about the future of your wrestlers and your promotion. Do you want to risk putting your highly popular World Champion in a match against a dangerous bad guy “heel” wrestler? What if the heel injures your champion and puts him out of action for months? How will that affect your future ratings?
As well as booking wrestling matches for your shows, you can also book the promo spots that will occur during your TV shows. These spots can range from simple video packages, to in-ring segments involving unwanted guests and possibly a brawl. A good promo spot can boost the fan buzz and popularity of your wrestlers. At the end of a match, or when a promo spot is run, you can see the amount of fan buzz that segments drew from the crowd. More buzz leads to more ticket sales and better ratings for your shows, and increases the wrestlers’ popularity.
So, are you ready to enter the world of professional wrestling and take your place in the ratings war as a wrestling manager?
