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.
