Top 5 American-Football Games on iPhone

Best ways to score a touchdown on iPhone

While most of the world thinks of 'football' as a game played predominantly with the feet, Americans, well, don't. They think different.

Of course, American football has a considerable audience outside of the US, especially around Super Bowl time. And, so, with the next Super Bowl fast approaching, you might want to get into the spirit of things with one of these top-notch iPhone gridiron games.

That's the team talk done. Now, here's our Top 5 American-football games on iPhone.

First down!

This sequel to NaturalMotion's groundbreaking motion cap tackle alley sim is the best in the series. As in NFL Rivals, the goal in Backbreaker 2 is to run the gauntlet with your heavily padded athlete, spinning, dodging, and hurdling tackles on your way to the end zone. You get bonus points for style, as well as for steering through hotspots.

The team that brought you the Backbreaker series (yep, those boys up there) really cut loose with this licensed effort, allowing you to support your favourite NFL side by contributing to its global ranking. The game itself is all about jinking your way to the end zone, avoiding bone-splintering tackles as you do so.

American football is about more than just the running game, of course. There's also the kicking side of things, you see. In Flick Kick Field Goal, you attempt a series of field goals from increasingly tricky angles and distances, always taking the wind into account.

Like Flick Kick Field Goal, NFL Kicker 13 is all about lumping that squashed ball between the posts. The difference here is that you can represent any one of the 32 official NFL teams. There are also precise punting challenges that require you to find the right area of the field with your kicks.
