Android App NFL Kicker 13 Review


In pro sports, the least-respected positions are the kickers. No one really has any emotions about them until they succeed, or fail miserably. Ask a Buffalo Bills fan about Scott Norwood. NFL Kicker 13 from Full Fat Games celebrates these players with a game of their very own. Using the flick controls established in Flick Golf, this game is about kicking field goals and even being an effective punter. Yes, the punters get into the action too!

There are two modes for field goal kicking, “In The Zone” and “Time Attack.” Each has the goal of kicking the ball through the uprights, with steadily-increasing wind. However, “In The Zone” is endless, and rewards players with higher multipliers for kicking into the gold section of the end zone. “Time Attack” lasts 60 seconds, and players increase their multiplier by kicking into the glowing zone, and can also increase time this way. “Coffin Corner” mode is a different challenge: players must punt the ball out of the end zone. There’s a bonus multiplier for doing this on a bounce, and an overall multiplier that increases for kicking it out of the gold section of the sideline that’s basically within the 1-yard line. Doing this nets extreme points, though.

The controls are still simple to use like they are in the other “Flick” games. It’s all about flicking upward with the right angle, and watching the ball sail. Applying english to the shots to make them just perfect is extremely satisfying when they help get a very high combo multiplier. The ability to play as a player from any NFL team is great. As a new Chicago resident with no previous affiliation, I must play as DA BEARS.

Now, the most amusing part is that the kicker in NFL Kicker 13 is probably the most showboating athlete in football history. He makes the Gramaticas look subdued. If he were a real player, Roger Goodell would shoot him on sight. It’s funny because this kind of thing usually isn’t seen in NFL-licensed games.
