[prMac.com] Orlando, FL - Steamroller Studios announced that "iLectric Football" is coming to the iPhone and iPod Touch this summer. The game is inspired by the old vibrating football games that became popular over 60 years ago. It was built from the ground up to appeal to both casual and hardcore gamers. It's simple enough for a dad to play with his kid, yet deep enough to satisfy the hardcore football fan.
While the game will inherently appeal to a very niche and loyal crowd, it was created with the average iPhone user in mind. It sports an easy to follow user interface with the ability to play a full game by clicking only one button. You don't even have to know the rules of football or remember the original vibrating game to enjoy it. Having said that, the game is filled with many exciting features the hardcore fan will love. Including throwing passes, kicking field goals, full 3D camera control, and setting up custom plays. iLectric Football has a little bit of everything for everyone.
Steamroller Studios is currently planning on launching iLectric Football late this summer on the app store for the initial price of $1.99. There are many exciting updates for the game already being planned out that will be announced at a later date.
