80s Mania Wrestling

Recommended Posts

So, I did a quick search, but I came across no mention on EWB of this. And it shocks me. Because this seems like its something right up EWB's alley.

I just started a game and I'm having a blast. My favourite, by far, is Red Pirate Rogers XD

I've gone with Wrestle World for my first run through. So much stupid fun.

Looks like a Serious Parody to me.

Been playing it for years on and off, they just put out the Returns version of it and I brought all my progress into it. Some good mindless fun.

I played the last installment and wound up overwhelmed when I bought like 5 main event people because I didn't have spot for them all. Going to check this out though.

I've been playing this since the beginning. I actually did my own version of the G1 Climax for the 1980 wrestlers, and have been planning a sequel for 1981. I've posted the results on their official forums. :)

Can you start earning tokens any other way than paying for it? Because honestly I'm kind of getting tired of just using the same people over and over again, with the same results because I can't increase their push <_<

I downloaded it and then it immediately wanted to update something else on my phone. I'm not made of phone space damnit! So I uninstalled it.

I think you get a token when you complete each year or something along those lines? It's slow to start for sure but it picks up and it can be fun to use push cards to try and make upsets happen etc.

I sent them an email a couple of weeks back with a suggestion on how they could improve the filters for booking a match by separating them into push/style/alignment - and they agreed with the diagram and stuff that I laid out.

They totally patched it in today with battle royals, tournaments and some other features. That's so awesome.

Just picked this up recently to replace WWE Slam, and I'm having a good time with it.

Do card positions change at all? Like, will Chet Skye ever be able to be anything other than an Opener, for example?

Not that card specifically - but there'll be other cards through time eras of that same character that can have higher values.

So I should probably avoid putting my Openers in World Title matches then. That is good to know!

I'm at a weird point with the game where I'm just trying to max everything out. I come out on top for shows, can afford the best arenas, etc - so I just use the favorite/bookmark system to note the wrestlers I haven't maxed out in skill yet and spam them over and over again.

Really cool to see a lot of things I've suggested and gone back and forth with the devs make it into the game too.

You can promote them, but it requires tokens to do so.

I figured out that promoting a push just adds 3 to their push level, but does it change their card position at all? I swear Zen was a midcarder when my game started. I've promoted a push for him, so his push level is at 10/7, and he's currently listed as an Upper Midcarder.

Text doesn't really matter. Focus on the draw numbers (regarding rating) and push numbers (likelihood of winning).

Dr. B is listed as a "main eventer" because he's your top guy when you start, but he isn't really a main eventer in the grand scheme of things.

That being said, the card position will change, but again, other than organizational purposes, doesn't really matter.
