Just in time for Superbowl Sunday, Macworld has posted a roundup of the current football games that can be found in the App Store.

Macworld had already given high marks for LED Football [App Store] and LED Football 2 [App Store], but also took a look at these remaining titles in their roundup:

  • Paper Football (Free)
  • Finger Football (Free)
  • X's & O's ($1.99) - fun to a point. becomes repetitive (pictured above)
  • PocketSports Football ($4.99) - traditional football experience. some shortcomings.
  • QB Pass Attack Football ($1.99) - good casual fun
  • Solus Games' PocketSports Football seems the most promising traditional title with 3D gameplay. The game uses the accerometer to control movement of your players and multiple camera angles. The main shortcomings listed included difficult passing and little control over defense.

    Our discussion thread comments from the developer seems to indicate these may be addressed in a future update.

    This gameplay video gives you an idea of the game:

    Meanwhile QB Pass Attack Football earned high marks for pure fun. The game is one of Skyworks' sports games which offers an arcade recreation with great touch controls. A gameplay video from the developer offers you an idea of the game.

    Well, I guess it's time I buy Pocketsports Football, it looks as though Solus may actually be sticking to this price-point, thanks for that!

    Just a note,I bought PocketSports Football the day of release, and am still playing it daily! I think it is one of the fastest, most explosive games available. I don't see how games like Hellfire and Westward make it into the iTunes top 50 when PSFootball has a better star rating, and more reviewers.

    Oh well, this game is a true innovation and stand-out in the Appstore!

    Ok, here goes 4 straight comments in a row.

    PocketSports Football:
    This game, with the new update released today, just went from being the best, albeit underrated, sports title on the Appstore, to being THE BEST GAME on the Appstore! Still underrated though.
