A retro football flashback is now available on your Android device. Remember the good ol' days when you could play the 1978 Mattel electronic football game on a handheld?

Enjoy the simple and entertaining gameplay that started it all using the latest micro-electonics. You play as the ball carrier, and the computer is on defense. The interface was designed as an exact replica as the original. If you knew what you were doing then, you'll know exactly how to play now. Use the buttons to cut back, avoid tacklers, and run for daylight! Score a touchdown and hear the victory sound.

It's just like you remember, with the competition of real football, the skill of real play, and the entertaining challenge that made it a classic in the first place.

Tip: Sound is controlled by your Android device's sound. Make sure to turn your phone off vibrate mode and with reasonable volume to hear the sound. Turn vibrate on if you don't want to hear the sound

LED Football has 36 ratings that has a 4.2 star rating in the Amazon Appstore. It's unclear why it's not in Google Play, but that doesn't really matter. It was released to great fanfare on April 11, and we're surprised that it only has 36 reviews. We hope it has more that that many sales.
