Go Ahead…Break Your Back! Backbreaker – Android Game Review

June 16, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

Backbreaker is beautiful. The combination of nearly flawless 3D graphics along with addicting and smooth gameplay make this one a keeper

Name: Backbreaker

Description: Backbreaker is an intense arcade football experience. Score touchdowns by sprinting, juking and spinning past defenders, rack up combos and score multipliers on your way to the end zone!

Backbreaker features amazing graphics and 70 unique levels!

Brilliant – EDGE Magazine

NB: May not run on early devices (e.g. G1).

How It Works: You play the game by tilting the phone left and right and using the touch buttons provided. The goal is to dodge the defenders and get to the end zone. You can see this in action in the video embedded.

Opinion: I absolutely love this game. It’s easy to play, addicting, and has very good graphics. I suggest you try it out if you have a newer Android phone.


  • 3D graphics
  • solid gameplay
  • addicting!
  • Decent price


  • only works on 2nd generation android phones such as the Nexus One
  • only 2 modes

Conclusion: Even though there are only a couple of game modes, this is one of the best 3D games that the Android Market has to offer.

NOTICE: This game will only work on newer device such as the Droid or Nexus One, so don’t try to install it on a G1 or Droid Eris. It WILL NOT work.
