-- Tony Simpson, president of Hard Lick Sports, and former Verizon Wireless president, announced today, "Our Hard Lick Sports' studio development team has been working hard towards completion of a novel "11 versus 11" football simulation game for many months. We believe that it will be the first such advanced sports simulation ever built using the Unity 3D platform." Hard Lick recently launched a $250,000 Kickstarter campaign, which will fund major enhancements to the graphics and animation making the game a total immersion experience. "We are really testing new ground on Kickstarter with a high-end sports sim like this, since most of the successful Kickstarter projects have been focused on fantasy role playing and adventure game genres. Early feedback from sports genre fans interested in our game indicate that our Kickstarter project will reach a successful conclusion."

Simpson indicated that the game is designed specifically to showcase mobile devices with high-resolution touch screens and high-performance chipsets including Apple iPad/iPhone 4 /4S, Nvidia Tegra-powered Android phones & tablets, and the new Kindle Fire. Hard Lick Sports' motto is "Full contact sports to rock your mobile world!" In this new American football simulation, Hard Lick Sports iFootball: "Mud, Muscles & Mayhem" gamers will get a testosterone-
pumping "fix" of physical and psychological satisfaction every time they give their opponent a bone-jarring hard "lick."
