It may cost more money, but purchasing a football and throwing it up into the air to yourself will give you more enjoyment than Football Hero. I apologize if that sounds mean. Football Hero has to be one of the worst apps I have ever played on the iPhone. There is a quarterback and a receiver only. The quarter back throws it and we then control the receiver.
What does the receiver do in Football Hero? He avoids all these tacklers in this 2D side scrolling game. How far he runs is determined by how far the quarterback throws it. Which sometimes can be six to ten meters only. Magic Cube could not even get that accurate. Its yards in football, not meters.
I played Football Hero fifty times. I had earned enough gold to completely max out the receiver and the quarterback in their skills. Now I could save up eight thousand gold to purchase a better receiver but I saw no point. I could also continue to complete the goals set before me. Again what was the point? They would just replace them with new ones.
The blocky look in Football Hero does it no favors. Nor does it help to have repeating characters in the stands. The prostitute looking cheerleaders should have been left on the design table. The sounds in Football Hero range from the special effects to the tackling sounds. Football Hero tries to have an epic feel to it, but that’s hard to do with such little content.
I heard about
this app called Football Heroes coming soon back in May in the year of
our Lord 2013. I thought Football Hero might be that game. Unfortunately
I was wrong. Full disclosure time - part of my irritation with Football
Hero is I thought it was going to be a team football game, not a throw
and catch little app. Pass on Football Hero, you can spend your
ninety-nine cents on something better.
