Thank you for trying it. I appreciate your feedback. exactly what did you hate about it? please keep in mind this is based on the American sport called Football.

Hmm I just didn't have a clue what was going on? All I saw was a top down pic of one guy then some guys bumping into him form the side and one time he threw a ball???
Not sure maybe it needs a better tutorial or something, it wasn't that I hated it so much as didn't have a clue?

In the main menu, click on "How to play" it tells you the objective of the game since i'm guessing you are not at all familiar with the sport of American football.
To summarize what the in-game tutorial says, you just have to get your player and the ball to the other end of the field more times than the other team.

The other team will attempt to tackle you if you have the ball. try your best to keep that from happening.

I love it when a dev takes constructive feedback properly. Just for that, downloading!

Doesn't seem to work at all on iPad mini in 2X mode. The menu is partially cut off, and then when I try to start a game, all I get is a black screen with a pause button that doesn't do anything.

Thanks for testing with the mini! the graphics are all 1136x640(iphone 5)... i made it specifically for the iphone, i discovered after creating all the graphics that apple lets the game go on ALL platforms. i'm currently researching ways on how to fix this for all platforms ASAP

Edit: I found out the mini runs the 1024x768 resolution... the same as ipad 2 and a friend of mine had a similar problem on their iPad with this game. Im guessing since its not technically a retina iPad, i'd have to find out someway to scale down the textures... i've been researching to no avail but still trying. if you come across something could you please let me know?

you said "Hmm I just didn't have a clue what was going on? All I saw was a top down pic of one guy then some guys bumping into him form the side and one time he threw a ball???

That sentence told me that you did not look at the tutorial, and you lacked a basic understanding of football since you couldn't figure out why you got tackled. sorry for the misunderstanding.
ps. so far you are the only one who understands American Football that doesnt have a clue on what is going on in the game.
