Paper Football is a fun, free app that simulates the classic, two-player, football-like game that's usually played on classroom desks or school cafeteria tables, with fingers for goalposts and a folded-up piece of notebook paper for a ball.

Much as in real Paper Football (or Flick or Finger Football), you take turns flicking the ball across the table, trying to score a touchdown by going over the edge without falling off. Once you score, you go for an extra point by trying to flick the ball through a "goalpost" formed by the opposing player's fingers. Paper Football lets you play one- or two-player games to 35 points, with a computer AI that can be set to Easy or Tough, and you flick the ball by swiping the screen on your iPhone or iPod Touch. There is also a Kick Mode for practicing kicks, as well as a high score list and Worldwide Scoreboard. Although it may be lacking in depth and replay value, Paper Football is a fun, free diversion, especially in the two-player game mode.
