Superbowl Sunday Special: PocketSports Football

Author: iPhone Reviews // Category:

PocketSports Football is a Football game by Solus Games. $4.99

This special fast tracked review is in honor of the Superbowl XLIII between the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers. PS Football is the first real football game I have seen on the App Store. This is a very good game by Solus which really delivers NFL to the iPhone. The game has two game modes, quicky and league. Quicky is a quick game where you choose how long the quarters go for, 1, 2 or 3 minutes and your team and the opposition. League mode gives you a full league where you choose which team you will play with and the length of the quarters. Currently league mode only shows the win loss record with ties counting as a loss. I would like to see a full leaderboard in league mode and some achievements or unlockable items such as more teams.

Th graphics are ok for its price. The graphics are a bit pixellated but I'm not complaining as I find the gameplay alot of fun. The game is responsive and the buttons are easy to use. When passing the ball to another player the it is simulated well and if it is done at the wrong time it will be incomplete. Another option that I believe could be changed is that if you get free it is impossible to be caught if you don't stop running. I would like to see certain players that go faster and certain players that go slower to add some variety.

The sound is quite good. Some audio is put into the game to add the stadium feel. I generally found the audio was in sync with the game and wasn't annoying. Again I don't believe sporting games need to worry that much about sound and if you don't enjoy the sound then it is easy to turn it off.

Being originally from Australia I am only just learning all the rules of the NFL and this game was surprisingly easy to play and understand. Even for someone with no football knowledge would easily figure out that you have three goes up running or passing to make it past the next line and if you do you get another three goes. If you can't make it past the fourth go lets you either try again and risk a turnover or punt the ball. While in both offense and defense there are four options for set up and four options of how to play the point. I believe this is a great idea so that you are controlling the whole team and not hoping that they go to a good spot. Touchdowns will give you 7 points. In an update I would like to see maybe 6 points for a touchdown and a chance to kick yourself an extra point.

This is a great game for all NFL fans and even those who are interested in sport but don't have must knowledge of the game will pick this up and be able to play interesting. There are some slight improvements which I believe could be made but it is an excellent start for the first real football game on the iDevice. Great job Solus!

Gameplay- 8.5/10
Graphics- 7.5/10
Sound- 7.5/10
Overall- 8/10

I would recommend this game if you enjoyed- X & O's Football

At each and every social gathering there are two sorts of individuals * those that want to return home and those that don't. The trouble is, they're usually hitched to one another.

Nice post here buddy! I really like how you present the game and make it look good even though it’s an app that only targets a small portion of the market! I don’t know if you realised it, but not many people around the globe know about the Superbowl or American football! I personally would rather opt for numbers game in the likes of Numbs: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id674456722 . It’s a cool pastime!
