It took less than 24 hours for NaturalMotion to make an impact on the App Store, as Backbreaker Football has already breached the top 50 for all paid games. The first in-house game from the development juggernaut that produces the animation technologies euphoria, morpheme and endorphin (rapidly adopted in both the game and movie industries by companies such as Rockstar Games, LucasArts, Disney, THQ, CCP, Bioware), Backbreaker Football offers a mobile football experience that can be rivaled by none.
The game, which utilizes the iPhone/ iPod touch’s accelerometer controls, presents football in full 3D glory. Backbreaker Football’s amazing replication of bonecrushing tackles is sure to please both pigskin fans and mobile gamers alike. Directly inspired by a mini-game taken from NaturalMotion’s Backbreaker (currently in development for Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3), Backbreaker Football truly brings a console-like experience to the iPhone/ iPod touch.
As a standalone title, the action and gameplay speak for itself. Not only is Backbreaker Football an elite application, but its release marks the unique opportunity to showcase aspects of a future console title on an entirely different platform. The opportunity for NaturalMotion to create both a superior application, as well as officially introduce the world to the powerful gameplay associated with the future Backbreaker console title, serves as a win-win situation for anyone with an iPhone/ iPod touch.
