"The most addictive sports game I've played on an iPhone"

"It feels like PS3/360 gaming on a tiny little screen… it’s THAT good!"
"Backbreaker Football looks amazing and the animations are topnotch. But you'd expect this of NaturalMotion - which provided the animation engine for GTA IV."

The Appera
"Just do yourself a favor and play the frickin game!"

Customer Reviews


I love this game, and everything about it. I don't have a single concern with it. Everyone who has said the juke or spin doesn't work sometimes, doesn't press the button. The just press the speed button again on accident. Love this game, think I'm addicted..

Needs to be updated

This is a good game but it only worked the first time I played it. That means I have to uninstall this game then install again whenever I want to play it. That's the only way the game works. I have an iPhone 4s and I have the latest version of iOS installed. Maybe it's because my phone is old. Please update this game.

Bad, bad, and unfair

1st. Sometimes when i'm running down the field when I press the juke and spin buttons sometimes they don't work, so I lose lives! Then when I press the retry button and start playing again an advertisement gets in the way causing me to lose a life. Also, when I am able to juke or spin sometimes the tacklers when they've already leapt to tackle me move in midair and end up tackling me. Absolutely horrible game.
