Hasn't been updated in almost 2 years. Latest reviews say it crashes before kickoff. Was going to buy but not now.

I don't understand the "not compatible with ios 6" part. I've got games with openfeint or plus that haven't been updated for 3 years, yet run fine on ios 6.

I bought a game, some itunes says it crashed on start, I bought it anyway.

And it crashed on start. So now I am forced to play on my iphone, which I don't.

Moral of the story, don't ignore the warnings.

Anyone got it to work on ios 6.1.3? This any good?

agree don't ignore the Most Resent/Critical Reviews

just tested ios 6.11 + ios 5.11 on ipad 2, ipad, ipad 3, ipod 4g and all crash at kickoff. wonder if there is a work around fix or a jb fix modified file?

looks pretty good if it would work.


NOTE: Not compat with IOS 6+

I got it working on my IPAD 1 64GB ios 5.11 (2x), cleared some space, hard reset etc. Was shocked when tried quick play and it worked. exit and hit season and played a whole game with no crashes on kickoff. still can't get it to work on other idevices as it crashes when ball is kicked off.

has some alright stats, nice you can change playbook plays at anytime. don't like the screen tapping to break tackles much, would be cool if it works on icade! comes with all the sacks, bouncing fumbles, dive over the pile and anime. can't see anyone enjoying playing this on a small screen; iphone or ipod.

its worth $1-$2 to the avid sports fan like myself(little fun) and if it was priced at $1 to see if it works. but for $4-$8 seems to high with the guess what device this may work on. would give it 2.5 out 5 stars, but warn users it may not work on there iphone etc.

old Review found on TA http://toucharcade.com/2011/05/26/te...to-the-iphone/ from the video post by Blake on TA.

if anyone else owns this if you can post your setup/device.

Sure was. Too bad this version sucks, and it's probably a blessing in disguise that it crashes on launch.
