Today’s free iPhone app at FreeAppADay.com is Backbreaker Football, from NaturalMotion Games.
the game, as you might have guessed, is a football game, taking you through multiple gameplay modes including Challenge Mode and Endurance Mode. The gameplay itself sees you tapping or holding on one of the many buttons placed along the lower half of the screen. There are buttons for Juke Left, Juke Right, Spin Right, Spin Left, Sprint, and Showboat.
In the game’s most general gameplay mode, you’ll find yourself going up against wave after wave (90 waves in all) of increasingly difficult defensive players. You’ll have to keep yourself from going out of bounds, with the ultimate goal being to make it to the endzone without being tackled.
In Challenge Mode, you’ll have to complete each challenge before you can move onto the next, with a single challenge consisting of 10 waves. At the end, you’ll receive a score, with high scores being rewarded the bronce, silver or gold backbreaker helmets. You have four attempts per wave, if you’re playing in either Rookie or Pro difficulty modes. The Hardcore difficulty gives you a single attempt per wave.
Finally, in Endurance mode, you work to complete all 90 waves in one sitting, hence the mode’s name of “endurance.” You’ll have five attempts per wave in the lower difficulties, while Hardcore, again, only offers you with a single shot at each wave. You can post your scores from Endurance mode on Facebook to show how you compare against the Backbreaking elite.
