You can play the game, with visuals just slightly better than its predecessor, in a variety of modes including season, postseason, and exhibition.
The game features all 30 MLB teams, and you can play an entire 9-inning game in just 20 minutes. It also features easy-to-use "classic" controls, allowing you to control the game with what is basically just two buttons.

Finally, there is unlockable in-game content such as legacy jerseys that you can unlock by playing season mode.
You can get R.B.I. Baseball 14 on the App Store for $4.99.
