AFL Gold comes to i-Phone and i-Pad

General News
Finally, after much speculation, Aussie rules gameplay finally comes to the smart phone and tablet PC with the AFL Gold edition, brought to you by Tru Blu entertainment and Wicked Witch Software. This latest AFL game is an adaptation of the popular AFL Wii for recent iOS devices and captures many popular features of the original game, such as teams from AFL, VFL and TAC Cup, player and team creator, and career management. 
 
The graphics are in full 3D, from the player characters to the realistically represented AFL stadiums. With motion captured animations and real ball physics linked to high quality sound effects, the game creates a live experience, which combined with dynamic camera angles, television like transitions and smooth effects, lands you right in the middle of the action.
 
Added to that the intuitive virtual controls and you might find yourself playing for hours, working up from the easy levels, through to Legend difficulty, defeating opposition teams and triumphantly singing authentic club songs, attaining player medals and premiership glory.
 
The Quick Match option is the best way to throw yourself into the action- choose your team and get in a quick fix of AFL action as you battle it out on the field. For a more in depth experience, try the Custom Match option which allows you to chose the stadium, geurnsey and game length, and includes alterable effects such as weather conditions, time of day and crowd characteristics.
 
Begin your career playing in the TAC Cup and work your way up through the VFL to AFL level and premiership champions. Coach your team through training, tackling realistic scenarios such as injury management and tribunals, or take the step up into management and control staffing, salary caps and other finances, player and coach contracts, team sponsorships, draft picks and multi-player trades. Or simply take to the field with a selection of over 50 teams, plus unlockable bonus teams, and play in a selection of 4 different leagues. Competitions features include team line ups, fixtures, ladder and player stats.
 
The game is available to download from http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/afl-gold-edition/id479793371 and more information, including screenshots and support can be found on the Wicked Witch website www.wicked-witch.com.au

Did wfn get paid for this ad?  if so it should be made clear that wfn did.  None of the afl computer games to date have been better than mediocre. I have a hard time believing this will be any different.

No we did not get paid.  This company has been very enthusiastic about including international teams in their footy products and as such we wish to support them, as it is an important part of promoting awareness of international footy.

 A story about the support that they have given to international footy with a link to their game website would perhaps be a better way of giving something back to this company rather than reproducing what looks like a generic marketing press release.  Anyway, keep up the good work.  You no doubt put a lot more into this website than you get out of it so thanks. I don't mean to be needlessly critical, but this just stuck out like a sore thumb to me.

I understand what you're saying svalovec and yes I do normally try to make a clearer distinction between a press release and our own personal review, but we're all juggling lots of volunteer and work commitments so sometimes we don't always stick to the high values of the big guys, like News Corporation (ahem!).

And like I said, these guys have been good for international footy so we're keen to support them.

For those interested in the earlier Wii release, our review / press release is here.

I found out about the AFL Gold through the Jonah Lomu rugby game and someone's post on our facebook page, and having written a previous article on AFL Wii, I asked them for some more info.

The articles aren't just a promo for Wicked Witch either- the last one I wrote got around 2,400 views- over 10 times as much as the women's footy articles get- and you can guarantee many were not our average readers, so word about international footy and the site gets spread around, and I hope the same will happen this time too.
