Football Heroes™ has put up impressive first season stats on the virtual gridiron, with one million players worldwide (since launching in November) and over seven million games played in just one week. Football Heroes™ has outranked Madden 25, FIFA 14, and Candy Crush Saga on the Top Grossing and Download App Store charts at various times throughout the 2013-14 NFL Season, a major achievement for the independently-developed game.

"We have been blown away by the response to Football Heroes," says Michael A Marzola, the President/Creative Director of Run Games LLC. "Some players have played over a thousand games of Football Heroes since launch [three months ago]. That is just nuts! To show our thanks we are adding tons of new content and new game modes to ensure the fun does not stop during the NFL offseason. This Super Bowl update and all the new content would not have been possible without their feedback and continued support."

Football Heroes™ is a hard-hitting, fast-paced football game reminiscent of classic sports games like Tecmo Bowl and NBA Jam with a twist of Mortal Kombat. An arcade football/fighting game with HD visuals, a wide variety of customization options, and role playing game (RPG) elements with a highly-addictive multiplayer component, Football Heroes™ is a unique gaming experience. According to Marzola, "We wanted to make a football game that emphasizes fun and creativity over realism and simulation, Madden has had that covered for over 25 years."

Football Heroes™ (iPhone) and Football Heroes™ HD (iPad) v1.4 is now available on the iTunes App Store for free.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
