The English Premier League is set to kick off today and, as we reported a few days ago, you can watch every match of the league right on your iDevice with the NBC Sports Live Extra app. But if you wish to be a player rather than a mere spectator without having to lose your grip on your beloved iDevice, then get a kick out of playing Perfect Kick.

Developed by Gamegou and published by Chillingo, Perfect Kick is a new game that offers classic soccer penalty shootout gameplay.

The game lets you log in as a guest or via Facebook or Game Center. Then, it prompts you to challenge other players around the world and to swipe to kick and block balls. Lots and lots of balls.
