WELLINGTON, New Zealand - May 31, 2010 - PikPok TM today announced that it will be releasing Flick Kick TM Football for iPhone and iPod Touch in the coming weeks. Flick Kick Football challenges players to score from free kick positions by bending the ball around fearsome defender walls, while immersing the player in the nostalgic 70's age of football greatness. The game will be available for a special 50% off launch price of $0.99, which is much less expensive than a World Cup Ticket or even a Pint.

"We know fans of the beautiful game will find Flick Kick Football to be the perfect challenge for the living room or the bar, whenever there's a crowd of rowdy hooligans or fellow fans that want to show they are champions."
