Backbreaker Football: the Name Says it All

NaturalMotion Games Limited's Backbreaker Football is an intense, three-dimensional graphics, arcade football experience. Like a football combine on steroids, Backbreaker Football focuses on individualistic feats of football-based athleticism. Backbreaker Football eliminates all of the excess, leaving only the essential parts: namely, high-speed end zone runs, early-onset, dementia-inducing tackles, and showboating. Leave the team work to the soccer players. Backbreaker Football is you against wave after wave of glory-crushing defenders.

Hard-hitting Gameplay

You score touchdowns by sprinting, juking and spinning, racking up combos and score multipliers on your way to the end zone. Backbreaker features 90 waves, nine challenges, and three difficulty levels. The variety of gameplay can keep you on your feet or on your knees for weeks. Avoid bone-crushing tackles all the way to the end zone and rack up player stats.

In setting up for yor backbreaking challenge, you can assign yourself a player name, your skintone, your jersey number, and choose your team name. Depending on the level of challenge you decide upon, you're assigned a team to play against. Don't worry, though. They're all capable of knocking the stuffing out of anyone carrying a football. Choose Rookie, Pro, or Hardcore player levels to suit your expertise. Be careful in selecting your level of challenge: you may not survive. The more you play, the more experience you'll get to avoid those head-on collisions that'll send you to the hospital or at least the sidelines for quite a while.

View global High Scores and perhaps submit your own if you're good enough to compete with the best of the best. You can even send a challenge to a friend to beat your score via e-mail from the app.

Set in a stunning 3D stadium with multi-angle instant replays, Backbreaker is a thrilling, offense-based take on America's most popular pastime. Now, get off that couch, and play like real pro!

5.0 out of 5 stars Game's great, your phone might be a problem though April 5, 2011
Verified Purchase
It's not so much a football game as it is a set football based mini-games. The graphics are very crisp and the controls are smooth. My only gripes are the giant intro advertisement for the console version of the game, and as a non-sports guy, I'm not sure how long this will hold my interest, but your mileage may vary. Also, apparently this doesn't run properly on some phones and tablets, so do some research before you hit "buy". Works great on Galaxy S though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works on LG Optimus V (Virgin) phone April 5, 2011
Verified Purchase
I'm surprised it works on the LG Optimus V (Virgin Mobile) phone. You do stare at a blank screen for a while when you load it, which made me think it didn't work at first. But very impressed at least with my cheap phone that it played this, after reading that a lot of people are having trouble. I wish it was more of a full football game though.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow!!!!! April 5, 2011
By Neal
I'm in love with this game!!!! So graphics are perfect and its plays really smooth. I didn't experience any lag what so ever. I would recommend this game. Download it now, you won't be disappointed. Don't listen to all the other comments, they must have crappy low-end phones. I have a Galaxy S phone and a Nexus One it works for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good game April 5, 2011
By BoB
Always enjoyed this one. Fun and simple concept, which gets challenging as you progress through the levels. Great graphics and sound. Used on both Droid and Droid X without issue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ehhh... April 5, 2011
By w87b
This was definitely more entertaining than I had expected. However, controls can act weird sometimes, but if you close out the app and start it again they work fine.
