Backbreaker: Fight your way to the endzone by juking, spinning and sprinting your way through the defense. Each level adds more players to get by, as well as limiting pathways to run.

There are two modes, challenge and endurance, both with different difficulty levels. You can unlock more content by earning gold helmets and passing challenges. 99 cents in the app store.
Flick Kick Field Goal: After breaking tackles and fighting your way through the defense, tack on a few extra points and stick it to the other team. You control the angle and curve of your kick, and flick to split the uprights. Wind is a factor, which comes from any of the 360 degrees and can be a breeze to heavy winds. The game modes include sudden death, arcade mode, time attack and practice mode. You can also challenge your friends using the leaderboards and achievements via OpenFeint. 99 cents in the app store.
