Over the past few weeks, Dan and I have been teasing you about a new sports game that is in development by some former industry veterans. Today, we’re going to give you a bit more information about a free-to-play game for iOS and Android called, Your Turn Football.
As you can see from the screenshots, the game has a “10 yard fight” look to it and has a great pick-up-and-play type interface.
The game play controls are much more simple than a lot of the sports games that you have seen on mobile platforms before. Gone are the options to pick “X-Right, Y-Split, Iso.” You pick your offensive strategy and then the game leaves the timing of your cut or passes up to you with, simple, two button controls. For the defensive side, the only thing that do is to pick your strategy to run against the opponent while they are playing offense against you.
By playing games (either winning or losing,) you gain coins that can be used to enhance the players on your team. Also, if you want, you can spend real money to get dollars in the game that allow you to purchase better players, upgrade your special teams, or buy better offensive and defensive coordinators.
We’ll be posting our Riding the Pines podcast with the staff behind the game in the next week or so when the game releases and you’ll get a ton more information about the game at that time.
I can safely say that this is one of the most fun games I’ve played on a mobile platform to date. Between my phone and tablet, I have over 15 games going all at once and am enjoying every one of them from the blowouts to the nail-biters.
The game is due to be released in the next few weeks and we’ll be pestering each and every one of you to download it as soon as you can, so we can start playing games against all of you.
