When Backbreaker Football was introduced, it was pitched as a Madden-killing physics powerhouse of console football. At long last, the game has been released… on the iPhone. For 99¢. I’ll admit it—I downloaded the game expecting to giggle at what a hot mess it was. Turns out NaturalMotion molded Backbreaker into a clever arcade football challenge (you simply steer your player down the field, dodging tacklers with accelerometer and touch controls) that’s perfectly suited for the iPhone.
About our scale… the number of words in our review reflects the score of the game. In practical terms, you could assume that games reviewed in 49 words or fewer should be avoided, games reviewed in 50-75 words would make a decent rental, and games reviewed in 76 words or more would make a solid purchase.
