Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) May 23, 2014
Engage Mobile Solutions has been selected as a finalist for the 2014 Appy Awards for its groundbreaking game Vs. Football, which launched last fall.
The annual awards event, which is presented by MediaPost Communications and acknowledges creativity and excellence in app design, is known for “recognizing the best apps and developers around,” according to its Facebook page.
Kansas City, Mo.-based Engage Mobile was selected as one of the top three finalists in the category of Games: Action/Arcade/Sports.
“It is exciting to see Vs. Football grow and gain acceptance in the market by both casual and hard-core football plans,” says Matthew Barksdale, president of Engage Mobile. “We have had more than 1 million plays called in the system in the first few months of release, and it is only going to get better and bigger going forward.”
The Appy Awards celebrates the best apps in a variety of categories “from games and news to health and fitness, social networking, photography and many others,” according to its website. Apps submitted for the contest can be those designed for mobile devices, computers or those that operate via social networking websites. This year’s awards featured 40 different categories.
“Vs. Football is a completely new and unique take on the concept of a sports strategy game,” says founder and CEO Darrin Clawson. “It’s like no other game in the market – the app was created by football fans for football fans. It was built from the ground up to provide an authentic experience.”
Vs. Football is structured just like a real football game – with four quarters, halftime, punts, field goals, and touchdowns. The game is not an action game with floating joysticks where you try to “juke” your opponent – it is a contest of strategy where each player calls the plays for his team.
Add to that the unique look and feel of the game (think old school football with X’s and O’s on a chalkboard) – and that presents an authentic experience for real fans that makes this app one to be noticed.
Engage Mobile released the game during the heart of football season last fall (October 2013) and released an update that included stats and random opponents during the NFL playoffs in January.
