Pro Strategy Football 2013 by Pro Strategy Games ($4.99, 45.6 MB): Built for the stat, skill, and otherwise number crunching fans who truly understand the elements, this turn-based strategy football game is all about precision planning. Sure, you have a playbook in hand, however, it’s useless if not applied properly. On a simplistic level, you would select a 3-4 or nickel for pass, nickel or 4-3 for an assumed run, etc. However, the decisions that lay before you here go much deeper. Because you rely on variously skilled players, which are totally AI controlled, to execute the plans of attack, recognizing advantages and weaknesses of players and groups on your team as well as the opposing is essential. For example, the choice to blitz depends upon many factors: each lines’ strength, wide receiver and secondary defensive players’ speed and hands skills, plus the quarterback’s ability to throw accurately on the run and quickness at recognizing open receivers. Indeed, there’s a lot to consider, and you must calculate it all. The game features pixelated 2-D graphics, retro arcade sound effects, energizing instrumental soundtrack, season and scrimmage modes, single and two player match support locally and online via Game Center, simple play selection with valid individual configuration adjustments, replays, statistics, match highlights, and all 32 NFL teams.
