SAN FRANCISCO and OXFORD - September 2, 2009

NaturalMotion, the animation technology and game development studio behind the euphoria engine, today released the official trailer for Backbreaker Football: Tackle Alley, an upcoming intense, arcade football experience for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

The player must sprint, dodge and spin past waves of oncoming defenders, racking up point combos and score multipliers on their way to the endzone. Through Facebook integration, players will be able to see how their high-scores stack up against their friends'.
