Most def a blend of Tecmo Bowl and light NFL Blitz. A lot of fun with easy controls. IAP aren't intrusive and between earning players and plays it creates a pretty deep card collecting strategy game underneath the already awesome light football sim. I see myself easily sinking a ton of time into this. Really the quick football game iOS needed.

Thanks Killer,

We need to improve League mode. Seeing it in the live environment, it's not working out the way I had hoped it would

Love it! Though I do wish for some new graphic changes, maybe more stadium designs or character faces, to give it a fresh look. Maybe even some kind of new mode? It just seems relatively the same as before.

Aside from that, it's still an amazing game (especially without contracts). I LOVE how you can play it on iOS 6 and how you can play offline. Though it does bug me that while I'm offline it keeps telling me to turn on notifications every time I open the app. Not sure what's up with that.

I wish there was an easier to way to get a specific character, doesn't even have to be the gold version. It's just that there's so many players and teams, I wish I could make a team with most of the ones from their current roster since the starting ones you get often don't have the actual starter players and are using backups instead.

Ok, so one complaint from me after some decent sessions. I have a iPhone 6s+ and it makes my battery warm and drains it kinda fast. Not anything super severe, but enough to notice. Hopefully this can be figured out in a update. Besides that, everything is still going good. Bought my first IAP to support the devs and got some solid players and plays, so the pack RNG seems fair or I'm just super lucky. 😁

- Graphics - absolutely right. The game looks a bit stale. We are planning to move to complete 3D next season. This will allow tons of customization and make it easier to implement new animations. We plan on adding touches to the stadium this season. Making changes to the animations (frame based animation) is expensive.

- will look into the notification bug. Thanks for that.

- specific player - yeah this is the goal of the game. Keep opening packs until you get your player. It's a hard thing to balance.

We are going to try and add physic driven pillions into the end zones and add collision to the stadium for the ball to bounce off of, improve the graphics in the endzone.

Modifying the characters is very difficult and expensive. Too much for this year's game
