Weekly Time Waster – ‘Touchdowners’

Rate this item
(0 votes)

Football starts in less than a month. You might have forgotten, but the preseason for the NFL is almost here. What better way for us to get into the mindset of good ol’ American football than with a game called “Touchdowners,” right?

“Touchdowners” is a hilarious physics-based football game. It’s chaotic, it’s silly. And well - it’s perfect. This game is not a simulation of football, but rather a mere interpretation of it. The game sees you controlling a team of three football players. You have three buttons; two of them move the players left and right, and the other throws the ball (or shoots the ball out of your arms like a pirate ship cannonball). All three players move at the same time, and in the chaos of the game, the players end up bouncing around off one other.

You score points by getting the ball into the other team’s end zone and touching it physically on the ground. With the ball physically having to TOUCH the ground, it gets tense when there is a pile of players under you and the ground. Better yet, the other team can grab the ball right out of your hands and chuck it away. There is nice career mode which sees you playing for championships, as well as an arcade mode to see how many touchdowns you can get before the other team scores.

Whether you’re a fan of football or not, pick up “Touchdowners" for free in the Android or IOS stores. You will not regret it!
