X vs O Football for the iPad Copyright 2011 by Les Bird
X vs O Football
is a unique take on the X & O Football games. In X vs O Football
you design out your own plays by drawing them on the iPad touchscreen.
When you're ready just tap on the quarterback to hike the ball and your
receivers and backs will run the routes that you designed.
In X vs O Football you control your players by sliding your finger
anywhere on the screen. The player with the ball will always move
towards your finger. To pass the ball just tap anywhere on the screen
and that's where the ball will land. If there are any receivers in the
area they will run and catch the ball if it's in range (try not to
overthrow your receivers!).
The quarterback can run or pass the ball. If a backwards pass is made
the receiver can then pass the ball again so plays like the flea
flicker will work just fine.
How does the scoring work?
There are 2 scoring methods in X vs O Football.
There's the traditional scoring by touchdowns. If you pass the ball and
score a touchdown it is worth 6 points. If you run the ball in as the
quarterback it is worth 7 points.
Then there are bonus points awarded for:
1ST DOWNS - 1,000 points
Touchdowns - 2,500 for pass or 5,000 for run
Every yard gained earns you 10 points each
Scoring a touchdown in less than 10 plays scores a maximum of 5,000
Team and quarterback stats are recorded including total yards, total
points scored, total yards rushed to name a few. A quarterback rating
is computed based on the official NFL formula (158.3 is a perfect
Game Center (if logged in) will record your best touchdown score and
