Posted by adminNo CommentsJun 11, 2012

To celebrate the long overdue update to Spotflick and the kick off in the 2012 European Championships in Poland and Ukraine, Spotflick has decided to run a little competition to give something back to the finger flicking faithful. During Euro 2012, if you download or update Spotflick you will be able to enter a competition to win an England shirt signed by English footballing enigma Paul Gascoigne.

Simply play the game in Arcade Mode and then follow the instructions on screen when posting your high score and you could be the lucky spotflicker who walks away with Gazza’s tear drenched shirt*. If you want to find out more about the competition you can visit the Spotflick website, or simply just download the App and give it a go. For only 69p it would be rude not to.

*Please note that it is not the same shirt he wore the night he cried in Italy. He dd give me that shirt but it stank so I washed it and the signature came off. Damn you Vanish Oxi Action!

Spotflick 3.0 is out now!

Posted by adminNo CommentsJun 11, 2012

The Spotflick Blog has seen less action of late than the marital bed of John Terry so it is with great delight that I can finally post again with something vaguely newsworthy. Spotflick has just been updated and version 3.0 is available to download from the App Store now. Your favourite flick to kick penalty shoot out game for the iPhone has just got even better so get yourself over to the App Store and download the update now in order to make your Spotflicking experience even more finger flicking good.

Spotflick now features even more goalkeeping talent than before as the chairman has loosened the purse strings and allowed me to dip into the transfer market for the first time in a few years. We have made fewer signings than David Moyes recently, but we are hoping our latest additions will be more akin to Nika Jelavic rather than . So with our new signings on board that means there are over 20 of the best shot stoppers the world has ever seen crammed into the App. And Spotflick now has Retina Display graphics so crisp that you could shave David Seaman’s tashe off with them, if he hadn’t already shaved it off. We have also made a significant addition to the back room staff with Conor Winders and his craic team of flickers at RedWind Software coming on board. They have managed to weed out a lot of the negative influences from behind the scenes in the App that were causing it to crash and under perform.

The game still features 3 modes of penalty flicking action, including Arcade, Practice and Spotflick Cup Mode,  and is still the most footballing fun you’ll have had with your iPhone. Well, at least since you bought Score! Classic Goals. Which I hear is meant to be very good. But why not try Spotflick as it is pretty good as well. Honest. Go to www.spotflick.com to find out more.

Congratulations iPhoneGamerUK!

So when the competition ended last night the person with the highest score was Adrian Smith, better known as @iPhoneGamerUK, who just so happens to run the iPhone App review site – iPhone Gamer UK. Adrian showed some excellent Spotflicking Tekkers by posting a score of 393,500 and is now the proud owner of a signed Real Madrid shirt. Although being a Spurs fan I am not sure how happy he was to win!

Football Pays the Penalty!

It was a big weekend in football and penalty kicks for many reasons. There was a Manchester derby in London, which saw City defeat United 1-0 in the FA Cup semi-final and set up a FA Cup Final date with Stoke, who dismissed Bolton 5-0. There was a crucial game in the Premiership between Arsenal and Liverpool which ended in a dramatic 1-1 draw with two injury time penalties, with Dirk Kuyt scoring from the spot in the 102nd minute to put a serious dent in Arsenal’s title hopes. It also saw the latest installment of El Clasico in Madrid as Barcelona took on Real Madrid

Real Madrid Spotflick Penalty Kick iPhone App

A late penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo earned Real madrid a draw in the Bernabeu after Lionel Messi had opened the scoring with a penalty of his own in the 52nd minute. The result kept alive Real’s slim hopes of wrestling the La Liga title back from Barcelona who currently have an 8 point lead over their fierce rivals. The sides will meet again on Wednesday in the final of the Copa del Rey and also in the semi-finals of the Champions League, so let’s hope for more penalty kick action like we saw over the weekend.

Carling Nations Cup Kicks Off

Posted by adminNo CommentsFeb 09, 2011

The Carling Nations Cup kicked off last night in Dublin, with Giovanni Trapattoni’s Ireland taking on Gary Speed’s Wales, in what was the former Welsh internationals first game as gaffer of the Taffs. And it don’t go according to plan for the former Leeds Utd, Everton, Newcastle, Bolton and Sheffield Utd great. Wales went down 3-0 to the Italian Irish, with goals from Gibson, Duff and Fahey doing the damage.

It was a good start to what promises to be a very interesting tournament, involving all of the home nations, except England of course, as they would rather play Denmark. Probably due to Fabio’s desire to sneek a cheeky visit to Legoland in after the game.

But despite England’s absence we can still expect a great tournament with Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland battling it out for the title of the best team in the British Isles and Ireland, besides England. Maybe England were afraid of another humbling at the hands of Northern Ireland like they did in the 2006 World Cup Qualifier in Belfast.

Northern Ireland begin the defence of their British Home Nations Championship crown this evening against Scotland, so here’s hoping that Norn Iron can relive the glory days of 1983-84 when they last brought the title back to Belfast.
