NaturalMotion once again asks the eternal question of "Are you ready for some football?" with the announcement of Backbreaker Football: Tackle Alley, an iPhone game based on a mini-game from Backbreaker, a game currently in development for the XBOX 360 and PS3. The game takes advantage of "morpheme", NaturalMotion's iPhone graphics engine which allegedly "produces animation of a quality not seen before on the iPhone and iPod Touch providing the on-screen characters with a fluidity of motion rivaling that experienced on home consoles."
The iPhone version of the game is being developed by Ideaworks3D, the company behind Airplay SDK, a cross-platform environment that enables high-quality 3D graphics across a ton of mobile devices including the iPhone. The list of mobile phone games they've been involved in is pretty impressive and includes titles such as Dirge of Cerberus Lost Episode - Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid Mobile, and Project Gotham Racing among others.
In the game, players use the accelerometer and on-screen buttons to control their player through waves of defenders. You will be able to sprint, dodge, and spin past your opponents to rack up combos and score multipliers making your way to the end zone. Also included is Facebook integration to broadcast your high scores to your friends. Backbreaker Football: Tackle Alley will be available on the App Store sometime this fall.
Here is a trailer for the console version of Backbreaker:
