[prMac.com] Cheltenham, United Kingdom - Neon Play, the UK mobile games studio has launched an American Football sports game, Pro Football Touchdown 1.0 for iOS. For the release they have partnered with Miniclip, a leading online games and entertainment portal.
Pro Football Touchdown offers the unique experience of playing as an American Football receiver. On screen floats a pair of gloves surrounded by a roaring stadium. In the distance a quarterback appears, throwing a ball towards the player. The aim is to catch the ball by maneuvering the gloves into the right position, the smoother the catch the bigger the score.
Learning the controls takes a moment. Touching the screen equips the gloves, which can then be moved by sliding a finger around the screen. Quick responses are required to catch every ball as the throws vary in height, speed and spin. Catching the ball rewards the player with multipliers and points are rewarded based on catching efficiency.
There are three different game modes:
* 3 Lives - the player has three chances to get the highest score by catching as many throws as possible
* Sudden Death - one life and one chance to get a massive score
* Multiball - the quarterback throws 50 balls non stop! This mode is for the real pros
The game features live global leaderboards and scores can also be posted to Twitter and Facebook to obtain bragging rights amongst friends. There are also over 20 achievements to complete using Game Center, Apple's social gaming network.
Oli Christie, CEO of Neon Play commented, "Pro Football Touchdown is a truly simple, fun and addictive iPhone game and we hope players love the game. With stunning graphics and intuitive gameplay, we feel it's a tasty slice of iPhone gaming perfection!"
* iPhone, iPod touch or iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later
