The iPhone version of Street Fighter also brings back all the original features including the Revenge Gauge that supports Ultra Combos, and Victory by Special Move. The game menu is broken down into Solo Play, Versus, Stats, Invite A Friend, Get More and Special. Solo Play is where you will spend most of your time, and allows you to choose from Tournament, Dojo, Free-Sparring, and Training Room.

Street Fighter IV Dojo
Street Fighter IV Moves

Dojo is a where you go to progress through stages honing your fighting skills, including Basic Training, Special Move Training, Strategy Training, Combo Training, and finally Fighting Secrets. The Dojo sessions are a powerful place to visit where you go through 5 stages to hone and enhance your arcade fighting skills, including Basic Training, Special Move Training, Strategy Training, Combo Training, and finally Fighting Secrets. In Free-Sparring mode you can pick your own and opponent’s character and set their handicap levels.

If you’re not too keen of the placement of the controls, going into the game settings you’ll find that you can fully customize where each button is and how transparent they are over the gameplay. Each game has a 3-5 second loading screen which s good enough to let you collect your thoughts and maybe give your fingers a little break, while you read some random tips about playing the Street Fighter IV iPhone app. You can also change your screen orientation in the options section and change the sound level and language between English, French or Chinese. If you’ve never played SF IV before (which is hard to imagine) there is a full help screen that explains everything quite nicely which you can get to by tapping the ? icon.

Street Fighter IV on the iPhone

In Versus mode, Street Fighter IV uses Bluetooth to find local iPhone or iPod touch devices that you can connect to. It is recommended for this feature to work better that you turn off your Wi-Fi and that besides the two players, there are no other devices in your close proximity.

When you finish any solo play mode you get to watch a special version of the movie footage for Super Street Fighter IV, like the one you can watch by tapping the special button on the main title screen. The Stats screen is where you can replay saved replay videos, and see your versus and tournament stats summary, as well as change your player name.

Unfortunately the game does not save your progress if you quit out of the app in the middle of a fight. It also does not offer online playing capability which would make this game a must own, given the excitement of playing a live opponent. Nevertheless Street Fighter IV for the iPHone and iPod touch is the reincarnation of the classic arcade fighter, and will be a blast to play for anyone remotely familiar with the game or genre. Street Fighter IV for the iPhone sells for $9.99 and is worth every penny.

  1. HahHHHaaa dat video is so fake….you just recorded a video and pretend you wore playing it. Bull sh!t

  3. It will be out tonight

  4. damn i love this game 😉

  5. Just an FYI there is no option for Chinese as you say above. It says English, French and Japanese!!! All the voices will switch to Japanese and menu options too.

  6. how do you see recorded games

  7. The game does not start….or only provides one player…after few seconds playing it goes of…How can i get my $9.99 Back…o how can you gays fix this problem…

  8. Note that we did not create the app so demo videos are made by others and we post them here for our readers.

    If the app is not working properly, try uninstalling the app from your iDevice and redownloading it. It won’t charge you twice since you already paid for it. The iDevices are essentially like a computer. Sometimes things just don’t install properly on the first go.
