    Wow. I was just saying the iOS needs a blitz style game. Blitz was for n64 abs was awesome. And this has mp which should be amazing.

    There are around 100 perks planned for the games release :)

    Here are the Perks we have announced so far:

    Power Boost - Increases the damage your player inflicts when he punches
    Sticky Hands - Increases receiver's ability to catch passes
    Double Jump - Tapping “Jump” while in mid-air allows your player to defy physics and double jump
    Shuffle Speed - Increases QB's movement speed behind the line of scrimmage
    Ground Pound - Knock down all opponents in a given radius
    Stiff Arm - Knock down all opponents in a line while moving
    Fire Bomb - Throw the ball faster and farther and increase the odds of a player being able to catch the pass. And oh yeah, the ball is on FIRE!!

    We will be revealing new perks on this thread in the coming weeks, so keep coming back to see the new perks!

    Yes, we are planning release on the following platforms - iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android devices.

    It is very important to us that the game runs well (60 fps) on all versions of the game as it is a Multiplayer game. As we finish optimizing we will update with the specific hardware versions that will be supported by the game.

    Whoa! This game totally reminds me of Techmo Bowl meets Arch Rivals meets NBA Jam. This is an insta-buy for me for sure. Can you tell me more about your rpg stats/tech tree in the video?

    Sure thing, when your players gain XP by doing awesome stuff like: catching passes, rushing for yards, punching dudes you will gain XP. When a player gains enough XP they will level up and earn 1 Perk Point. You can then spend that Perk Point on any perk that is available in your player's skill tree. As you spend perk points the skill tree will branch and open giving you access to more powerful moves.

    New perk - oil slick

    NEW PERK - OIL SLICK - Leave those chasing Defenders on their behinds by dropping an Oil Slick. When the defender runs over the Oil Slick they will lose their footing and slip on the field they will have to get back up to get back into the play. Hopefully by then you are already in the ENDZONE!!!

    This game looks fun, I've always been a fan of arcadey sports titles. But why did you make team of all white football players against a team of all black football players, and you played as the white team (typical)? I really wanna buy this game but type of B.S. just make me think twice about giving your company my money.

    Oh no this is a terrible bug! The bug only allows for one skin tone per team for all players. We have a system in place to allow you to pick the skin tone per player on your team. I am sorry that we did not fix this bug in time for the announcement trailer. This is a terrible oversight and this bug will definitely be fixed before the Beta and for the final release of the game!

    Yep, you can customize everything about your players: Name, Number, Skin Tone and by unlocking Perks you can start customizing your players to your own personal playstyle.

    What kind of skills are in the tree? Can different skills make guys move faster or hit harder? Or is it just everyone on the team hits harder?

    When each player levels up their base abilities will increase (run faster, punch for more damage, increase health) but you will also have access to perks that can modify and increase these abilities even more!
