These tweaks mean that training players to get XP and fusing duplicate cards to unlock special cards now cost less than before. Alongside this, players can help out friends playing the game by sending them stamina - allowing them to play for a little longer.
Flick Kick Football Legends is available to downloaded now from the App Store for free.
How do you make an Endless Running game more than just another Endless Running game? By adding real life prizes to it, of course! That’s the thinking behind StupidFast: a game designed for football enthusiasts, and the brainchild of former college football star and current NFL free agent, Taylor Martinez. It all came about due to his career path changing quite drastically and suddenly.
“This past season was my senior season. I tore a ligament in my foot and separated my shoulder - both in the first game. I ended up not finishing the season as Quarterback. After the season, I entered into the NFL draft. I did my pro day at Nebraska and waited for draft day," explained Martinez, "I ended up going to the Philadelphia Eagles. I went down there and they took a MRI and X-Ray on both [injuries]. They said that they weren't going to take me any more. My dream was crushed and I didn’t know what to do. I decided to make a football app, and this is what I came up with.“
“I [have] been building apps for four years now," he elaborated, "I love doing it and have a lot of passion doing it... Stupidfast is different than any other app because it allows users to earn rewards and prizes. This concept is the first of its kind and would allow users to compete and earn rewards.”
Taylor’s lined up some fairly big companies too, with the likes of Sol Republic, HobbyTown, Cutter Gloves, Shock Doctor Mouth Piece, and Black Fly sunglasses all currently on board. Martinez also explained how there will be different console games you can win along with other prizes, including a “GoPro Raffle for every time you share a Kamcord.”
Kamcord support should prove quite a hit with StupidFast too, given its fast-paced nature. Players tap as fast as they can to try to run away from the safety, as well as jump over pillars. A stiff arm can also be employed to break the pillars, ensuring there’s plenty to do.
Martinez explained that, “prizes will be won based on your daily high score, best high score, the achievements [via] Game Center, and playing the football game. Inside the game, if you land on a certain number, you will win that prize.”
Achievements are varied, with awards for getting tackled by the safety and knocking your helmet off, falling on your butt when you hit a pylon, falling on your face hitting a pylon, collecting stiff arms, and passing 50 and 150 points in game.
“Every time you break your daily high score you will have a chance to enter into a raffle," Martinez went on to explain, "Inside the main menu you can click Earn Rewards, and see what prizes you can win that day and what raffles you can enter into."
Thanks to Taylor Martinez for taking the time to answer our questions. StupidFast is set to be a freemium game with in-app purchases available for more stiff arms, lives, and ad-removal. It’s set for release September 7. We'll be sure to let you know when it's out.
Square Enix has announced that their free-to-play football management game Champ Man will be receiving a new version for the new season - Champ Man 15. This new edition will allow players to manage one of 440 real clubs from 23 leagues from around the world in a realistic season set-up. The game will also come with up-to-date team, player and competition data, new training systems, and more tactical options.
Kenji Hisatsune, Vice President of Global Mobile Contents for Square Enix West, had this to say on the newest edition in the Champ Man series:
Champ Man continues to evolve with each season. We’re not looking to continuously make the same game. We listen to our fans and how we can improve their experience. The series is one of the longest running of its kind and we are very pleased to announce the new release for this football season. Champ Man 15 combines the depth and control you would expect from a management simulation with the speed and accessibility of a mobile game. We’ve improved the match engine to allow for a greater variety of chances, enhanced commentary, additional formations and tactical options. We hope our fans enjoy it!
Champ Man 15 will be free to download when it launches sometime soon.
The World Cup is still in full swing so it's an ideal time for soccer games to be updated, which will explain why that's happened with Flick Kick Football Legends.
The game now offers cut scenes for the International Cup, a new skill change in the form of Stare Down, an increased stamina bottle (up to 16 slots), and the option to play the International Cup in a suitably-themed stadium. Clearer explanations for the country link skill have also been included.
Flick Kick Football Legends is free to download from the App Store, so of course that means the update is free, too!
The World Cup is only a short six days away, and to celebrate, PikPok has added the International Cup to Flick Kick Football Legends - bringing in over 200 new international player cards to collect. Alongside this, players can now customize their team and country kits, collect captain cards to boost their teams, and take games all the way to sudden death and penalty shoot-outs.
Flick Kick Football Legends is available now and is free-to-play.
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
With the World Cup set to start in only a couple weeks, Snaptee have created an app to allow anyone to create their own football-related t-shirt. The World Soccer 2014 - Snaptee app contains over 32 vibrant style templates, covers every country that has qualified, and users can personalize their shirt design by adding their own name and number on the back. Users can then share their design on social media and order it within the app, with the t-shirts priced at $29.99 plus international shipping to anywhere in the world.
The World Soccer 2014 - Snaptee app is available now on the App Store and is free to download.
FIFA 14 is getting into the World Cup spirit with its latest update, which adds some tweaks and other goodies.
First, the game is becoming "more international" by adding in Turkish Language support. Also, an Origin login isn't required to create an Ultimate Team - it is possible to play such anonymously. The controls and movement mechanics have also been tweaked for smoothness.
This free-to-play soccer simulation remains popular, even months after we first reviewed it in the Fall of last year. We were impressed then, so it is safe to assume this update can only make the game better.
The Super Bowl is this Sunday, and as always, there are plenty of apps that can help you watch the game or enrich the gameday experience. Appropriately enough, here are six apps; with an extra app that’s not necessarily football-related but could make a Super Bowl party more fun.
Fox Sports Go: If, for whatever reason, you can’t get to a TV but have an iPad with you, Fox Sports’ official app will be streaming the Super Bowl on iPads. iPhone and iPod users are out of luck, and the app requires login with one of six supported TV providers, so not everyone can take advantage of it. But for those in the Venn diagram of “able to watch Super Bowl on iPad” and “need to watch Super Bowl on iPad,” Fox has got you covered.
SportsCenter: Maybe you just want to follow the score of the game while it’s happening, checking stats and whatnot. ESPN’s app is one of the best for that, and its push notifications ensure that no important sports news goes missed. So if, say, you get stuck working on Super Sunday but want to know when a team scores, this app will keep you in the know.
NFL Mobile: Another way to get scores is with the league’s official app. This boasts the advantage of also having game highlights, streaming video, Super Bowl commercials, and even support for those actually at the game or in New York with iBeacon support. [Editor's Disclaimer: If in New York, please don't use the app while on the "toboggan run."]
NFL Connect: The one thing the NFL playoffs are missing is the “game-within-a-game” of fantasy football. This app might fill some of that void during the Super Bowl: compete with friends by guessing which events will happen first to get points and filling out your 4x4 bingo card. Look, it’s either this or fantasy Puppy Bowl.
Foodie Recipes: Look, you could order pizza and wings for Sunday, or you could cook some frozen appetizers. Boring. Why not do something a bit more creative, like make the food yourself. This app provides some fancy recipes for gameday like beer cheddar waffles. I’ve never had one, but as a Chicagoan I love decadent food, and I want one.
Seamless: So let's say you try to make a beer cheddar waffle and you fail miserably and now the kitchen's messed up as though Octodad rolled on through - like what would happen if I tried to make one. You’ll need a backup plan. Don’t just call a pizza chain: use this app to find plenty of nearby places that deliver, including perhaps off-the-beaten-path ones that might be able to bring food before the game ends! Huzzah!
Spaceteam: Look, do you really want to watch a freezing Bruno Mars perform at the halftime show? Or watch eons of pregame coverage? You’ll have far more fun if you gather together some iOS and Android devices for this fun party game, which now has an experimental 8-player mode available from the upgrades menu. There’ll be more yelling and screaming than when a big play happens in the 4th quarter.
