Product Description

Feel the intense pressure, excitement, and skill of Rugby conversion kicking with this fun sports title from PikPok Games. Try to make kicks from different angles and distances, and even take into account shifting wind speeds and directions. Choose from Sudden Death, Arcade, Time Attack, and Practice modes, then use the intuitive flick controls to begin playing right away. Easy to pick up but hard to put down, this classic time-killer is sure to appeal to casual gamers and die-hard rugby fans alike.

Flick Kick Rugby
Account for wind and distance with each new kick.
Gameplay

In Flick Kick Rugby, players make conversion kicks of varying difficulty through the goalposts at the end of the pitch. Pick one of four different game modes: Practice, Sudden Death, Arcade, or Time Attack, and try out Flick Kick Rugby's intuitive control system to begin making kicks like a pro.

To make a kick, simply line your finger up with the ball and flick the touchscreen in the direction of the goalposts. Not every kick is straightforward though: experiment with curving left or right in your followthrough, or give a longer swipe to kick the ball further. Find the technique that works for you, then adjust each kick to account for changing windspeeds and angles.

Challenging Conditions

To add to the difficulty, factor in winds that can come from any angle or change severity with each kick. Anything from a light breeze to gale force winds must be taken into account if you want to succeed.

Online Scores and Achievements

Flick Kick Rugby features online leaderboards and achievements with OpenFeint support. Rack up the points and then post your newest scores to Flick Kick's global leaderboards. Think you're good? Show off your skills online as you compete against others for the top spot!

Multiple Game Modes
Sudden Death

Challenge your concentration with this classic test of skill. Score as many conversions as possible without missing. With no time limit given, just focus and keep making kicks to add multipliers to your score.

Arcade Mode

Make five kicks from five different positions on the field. Adjust your aim to score as many points as possible, then use the last ball at each position to score additional bonus points. Keep making successful field goals to build up a score multiplier, but watch out for changes in wind strength and direction: you'll need nerves of steel to keep that multiplier going under pressure!

Time Attack

Score as many conversions as possible within the given time limit in this quickfire flick kicking challenge. As each successful kick adds on bonus time, you'll have to keep cool and maintain steady aim to rack up a new highscore.

Practice Mode

Take the pressure of scores and time limits off your shoulders as you perfect your technique and learn how to become the best flick kicker in the world.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quickly Becomes Boring July 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a simple game app where you swipe your finger or stylus upwards toward the goal in order to score. Your score is based on a percentage of how close the ball came to the center of the goal. Wind speed and distance will vary greatly as the game progresses.

The game can be played by oneself or against the computer using the multiplayer option found in the menu. You can also play against online 'friends' through the help of the dreaded & most hated means of OpenFeint.

Regardless of how I feel about OpenFeint, I still checked out the game but, found myself becoming quickly bored within less then 10 minutes with the repetitious 'flicking'. I could almost predict my score before I'd even made a move!

Overall, I'm not all that impressed & will not be keeping this one...

2.0 out of 5 stars Too simple July 18, 2012
Verified Purchase
You kick...a ball...through uprights.

That's it.

Sometimes it's windy. Ooh. Tricky.

How bored would you have to be before this game became awesome? I can't even imagine. Maybe Tom Hanks sitting on a beach busting his teeth out with an ice skate might find this game to be an awesome diversion. Maybe.

On the other hand, the game is well made and the graphics are good. They did a good job creating a dull game.

I will start with the fact that I played this game for 3 min. and I got board out of my mind!!!
I also found out that the game is not about flicking at all, but simply slideing your finger.
Isaac looking to play a real game of Rugby but all the game is, is making a.ball go into a field goal.i am anoyed!

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent July 17, 2012
By K

This is a very simple game.

The "Flick-Kick" games are all about the same as far as gameplay goes, so, if you already have one , for instance "Flick-Kick Football" you won't find anything new here as far as the actual gameplay is concerned.

The graphics are very "rugbycentric" so if you enjoy rugby you will certainly like this theme.

The game plays well and the touch screen controls work flawlessly.......... which is necessary in a game like this one!

This is not a game you'll play for hours in a sitting, but, it is one that you will likely find yourself coming back too pretty often over time when you have a few minutes to kill.

The actual game activities are a little too sparse to award it a perfect rating. But , its close.

On its face I would rate this game as above average with 4 stars.

-2 Stars for integrating mandatory Open Feint

I rate this app with 2 stars

3.0 out of 5 stars Game is so so September 5, 2012

Flick Kick Rugby is quite average in my opinion. It is similar to Paper Toss except with a Rugby ball. I feel like the presentation is so plan. You just flick a ball into the post with some wind. The play screen does not attract me to keep playing.

I'm not sure why someone wouldn't love this game! It has multiplayer (turn based) built in. And the game itself actually requires skill. Different single player modes too. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Rugby
Fun game by the same people that did soccer, and football. Same concept, but the only thing that this game and football is the wind factor.

not any real depth to it, and probably not worth much money, but my 7 year old loves it for whatever reason 7 yo kids use for logic.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Meh...
Typical flick game. Nothing innovative basically kicking a rugby threw a post. Just like the waste basket flick game or the dozen of others like it.
