When you’re in the middle of a huge stadium preparing for the final tackle to get the ball to the touchdown, it’s a very emotional but funny moment. Millions are watching you on TV sets, a jam-packed stadium is cheering up for you and you’re wondering what would happen if you fail. Will you be able to leave the stadium in one-piece? Do you need police protection? Do you need to call your Momma for the last time to settle somewhere else before you go for that final tackle? On the other side of the TV screen, the question’s different: “Will there be another commercial break at this point of time?” Actually, more than a question, it’s a request which is mostly answered as “yes”. During this commercial break, you need something more interesting than the popcorns to keep your spirit for the game alive and that’s what we have today for you.


I am talking about the latest iOS app called Kickoff Rush that has been developed by LanziVision. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 6.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 ad iPhone 6 Plus.


Kickoff Rush is a sporting event that’s aimed to fill your short spans of low energies during the game and maintain an overall high-energy graph. Just when there’s a break, you can take a sip of this. Kickoff Rush is about a football player who needs to take the ball to the other end. But it’s certainly not an intense saga but meant to refresh when you’re in the middle of a harsh reality game. So there are many fatty players coming to tackle you who are a joke on their own. You can dodge by jumping over them, slide under them or just rush through them and it’s all right if you manage to touchdown.

The game can be called a package because every single element contributes equally whether it’s the gameplay or the graphics or the sounds. While the gameplay is addictive, the funny graphics make sure that you never get bored of it. The old-school retro graphics are a very good choice for this game as they go along with the theme nicely. The sounds also contribute in the same manner. The swipe controls are very easy to use and make sure your fingers and mind can coordinate without confusing. So when you’re playing this game, it’s a very different environment than the one you’re used to in Football. It’s like a comic-thriller and you’re the lead actor of that movie. Isn’t it exciting!


This game has a lot of content on offer. There are seasons and championships for you to be a part of. If you’re bored playing this game alone, challenge your friends in the Game Center in a one-on-one challenge. There are also many different colours for you to unlock for your team. So it’s as exciting as the one going on TV!

So I’ll definitely recommend this game to everyone; even if you aren’t a football fan. The app is available for free in the App Store and there are some in-app purchases for ad-free game and new colours to unlock.

Pros: funny graphics; retro feel; addictive gameplay; two-player mode; series and championships; new team-colours to unlock; free.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
