Silly Physics-Based American Football Game ‘Touchdowners’ Hits the App Store

Silly Physics-Based American Football Game ‘Touchdowners’ Hits the App Store

We’ve been excited for the release of Touchdowners [Free] ever since its first unveiling early last month. I mean, this is from the people who have made wacky physics-based sports games like Wrassling [Free], Dunkers [Free], and Golf Zero [Free]. How could I NOT be excited for their wacky physics-based interpretation of American Football? And as we learned a week ago, Touchdowners was all set for a June 22nd release. Except? it didn’t show up in time for our normal weekly new games roundup, which I though was kind of weird, and we hadn’t heard anything from the developers about when specifically it was releasing, which was also pretty weird as they usually send emails about everything.

Well, Touchdowners did end up showing up last night, and when I checked this morning it all made sense: It has one of the major big banner features in the App Store. Nice! As most everyone knows by now, once Apple contacts you about potential featuring, they don’t like you to go around blabbing about the release or anything, so that explains the radio silence and the slightly delayed release. The important thing though is that we can all finally score ourselves some touchdowns by wildly flailing our appendages at each other, which is really what life is all about. If you want to take Touchdowners for a spin you can grab it for free with the link below, and there’s a one-time $ 1.99 IAP to remove ads if you wish. Also, feel free to drop by the forum thread to leave your impressions or any hot strategies.

Wacky Physics Game ‘ Touchdowners’ Releasing June 22nd

Wacky Physics Game ‘ Touchdowners’ Releasing June 22nd

Take a pinch of wacky physics and add a pinch of American football (of sorts), and you have the upcoming Touchdowners, from the team behind the Golf Zero [Free] game. In Touchdowners, you control a team of 3 players, and you can do three things: jump forward, jump backwards, and throw the ball. Each of your three players has different skills, with the player at the front jumping forward fast but jumping backwards much slower and so on. No matter your skill, the wacky physics will ensure all kinds of silly shenanigans.

The game is coming out June 22nd (which is next week), and will be free with ads and one IAP to remove the ads completely. If you want to see more of the game, flail over to our Upcoming Games forum thread.

Colin Lane is out to deliver unique interpretations of every single sport on Earth. After his floppy-armed takes on wrestling with Wrassling [Free] and basketball with Dunkers [Free] in collaboration with Folmer Kelly. He’s started working with Brad Erkkila, and they did Golf Zero [Free] earlier this year, and it was good. Now, the duo is set to take their talents to the gridiron with Touchdowners.

Expect more of the flailing-arm, goofy-physics sports action that Colin Lane and co. have managed to deliver so far. But the element of passing shows some promise for making this unique. The board could suddenly flip around with a good pass. Or, chaos could ensure with a particularly bad one. However it all goes down, it’s sure to be goofy. Touchdowners is in development right now, and you’ll be sure to hear more from us when new details emerge.
