NFL Kicker 13 for Android Review

NFL Kicker 13 for Android is the game that allows you to take up the boots of a professional American Football kicker and lead your team towards victory (not really). The game offers the players that ‘kick’ they’ve been longing for in a genuinely recreated sport game and indeed manages to deliver the fun you expect from it. So, let’s check out as to how this game for Android fairs.

The Game Play:

Firstly, the game is fully licensed by the NFL and includes almost every NFL team present. The game begins by asking you to select a player type, because there are two – male and female.  Once, you’ve chosen, the game then lets you assign a name to the player and add him to any NFL team preferred (out of 32). Since your player is a rookie, the game then presents a tutorial mode that allows the players to actually learn the basics for the different gaming modes to come.

The gaming controls for NFL Kicker 13 is quite simple and allows for an easier game play. All you have to do is just flick or swipe your fingers forward to initiate a kick. A slower flick will result in the ball falling way ahead than intended and a faster (too) will result in the ball making its way towards the audience. So, precision is the secret. The game even allows you to slice the ball in a particular direction for a much stylized finish. The slice also turns out to be helpful during the different game modes that have a bad weather scenario.

The game offers several unlockables that can be opened on reaching a certain experience level. The unlockables include additional game mode, classic team jerseys, alternate team jerseys, cheerleaders, football accessories and equipments, stadium upgrades and much more.

Game Modes:

NFL Kicker 13 offers three different game modes for its players to play with. While some of the modes are already available for the players to game on, some require certain experience points to get unlocked.

Zone Mode – Zone mode here, will remind you of the game – Paper Toss, where the paper is replaced by the ball and the trash bin with a goal post. The same finger-flick controls, anyway! This mode simply asks you to kick the ball towards the post under a series of weather conditions. A series of successful goals will reward you combo points and individual points for each successful kick.

Time Attack Mode – As you may have guessed by now, the Time Attack Mode is all about scoring the maximum number of goals under a given limited time. Every successful goal will increase the ticking clock by a second or two and a series of shots will reward you with more time. This mode is non-linear, which means that the players will be given a different angle and weather conditions in each shot, which they have to successfully complete.

Coffin Corner Mode – This mode is inclined more towards the defensive front. It requires the gamers to punt-kick the ball towards the opponent side. The points are rewarded to the players according to the distance covered and additional points are offered to players who punt the ball after multiple bounce.

The Graphics:

Graphics in NFL Kicker 13 is great. The developers have made use of the licenses to the optimum and have come up with some really cool recreated versions of jerseys and accessories of every team. The interface is simple with minimal crashes and a decent response time. One of the highlighting features related to graphics and animation is that the in-game players perform several dance moves on scoring combos including the Moonwalk! Also, fireworks shoot from the ground when the players hit the golden spot on the post. The arena, the environment and player details have been indeed taken good care of and the outcome is clearly visible during the game play. Overall, great graphics!

The Verdict:

NFL Kicker 13 is a great paid app for your Android devices. The simple controls, decent console-style graphics and three playable game modes are sure to boomerang you back to the game frequently.  An obvious Thumbs Up!

Features of the game:

  • Includes officially licensed 32 NFL teams
  • Uniforms and equipments powered by Nike
  • Feature to compete against your Facebook friends
  • Upgradable stadiums
  • Punt mode
  • Players can be created and customized with a preferred player name and jersey number
  • Live NFL ticker
  • Great graphics

China’s Baidu enters mobile browser fight

China’s dominant search engine Baidu Inc rolled out a mobile browser on Monday to help secure its share in a mobile Internet market that surpasses the US population in size and to fend off smaller rivals such as Qihoo 360 Technology Co.

In China, the number of users who access the Internet from mobile phones has risen to 388 million, according to a government report in July, outstripping the number of users who access it from a desktop computer for the first time.

The Baidu Mobile Browser, which will compete with UCWeb Inc’s UC Browser, Google Inc’s Chrome and default Android browser, and Apple Inc’s Safari, is about 20 per cent faster than its rivals based on internal tests, Li Mingyuan, Baidu’s general manager of mobile and cloud computing, told reporters on Friday at a pre-launch briefing.

Baidu’s mobile browser also allows users to access a plethora of web-based mobile applications (apps) and run high-definition video through the browser without having to download apps or supporting software.

The browser, together with Baidu’s other mobile products such as its mobile operating system and cheap smartphones launched with partners, forms the core of what Baidu hopes will eventually become a source of revenue.

“Monetizing mobile is hugely important for Baidu,” said Michael Clendenin, managing director of RedTech Advisors, who added that the drive to monetize would be a medium-term concern for Baidu as its advertising clients still need to create mobile-friendly websites.

The shift to mobile could pose problems for Baidu if it can’t find a way to make money from search traffic. Baidu currently makes the bulk of its revenue from users searching from laptops and desktops.

Baidu’s goal is for 80 per cent of China’s Android handsets to have downloaded the Baidu Mobile Browser by the end of 2012, Li said.

The Baidu Mobile Browser also comes as Baidu is fending off threats on its home turf. Anti-virus software firm Qihoo 360 Technology’s entry last month into search caused Baidu’s shares to tumble 17 per cent to date.

Baidu is also moving into cloud computing, a term used to describe data storage or processing on the Web.

Chief Financial Officer Jennifer Li said on Monday the firm will invest more than 10 billion yuan ($1.6 billion) to set up its cloud computing centre.
