If you've ever dreamt of being a taekwondo expert but had neither the skills nor the patience to actually learn it, now you can live out your dreams through a mobile game. Taekwondo Game is simply that: an Android game that lets you compete against computer experts or even real players from around the world, based on real-life rules and physics from the sport itself.
The developer says that it is actually the first ever taekwondo mobile game but it is not just a haphazard kind of game. It is actually based on the motion-capture of real-life professional players making the movements and animations mimic that of actual taekwondo experts. It also follows the Olympic rules in terms of scoring and ranking. Even the sound effects are realistic enough since it was recorded in a real taekwondo place which is called a dojang. You can choose to play against bots or actual people in the Global Tournament.
The cross platform multi-player game is set in three different environments: Korea, Mexico, and Japan. Before you even enter the tournament, you can actually train and practice in a dojang, where you can learn both precision and timing. The controls and commands are not that complicated, and if you're a heavy mobile games user, it should be easy enough for you to determine.
If you're a new player who's interested in "the way of the foot and the hand" or if you're really into the sport and would like to also digitally master it, this game is a pretty nifty addition to your smartphone or tablet. You can get Taekwondo Game for free from the Google Play Store.
