Right through the uprights!

Super Football Kick 3D is a simple, one-player game in which you attempt to kick football field goals from varying distances.

Super Football Kick 3D is a simple, one-player game in which you attempt to kick football field goals from varying distances.

The touch interface is easy to master: you just swipe up the screen quickly, with your vertical motion determining how far the ball will go and horizontal motion determining its direction. The game looks great, with sharp graphics and 3D camera views that randomly alternate between different points of view (including occasional "ball's-eye view" shots in midair). The sound is also fun, with rousing drumline intros to each round (six rounds in all, each 10 yards farther out than the last), crowd noise that reacts to each kick, and even a realistic metallic "tink" when you hit the uprights.

What's missing from Super Football Kick 3D is much of a game. You are just shooting field goals for points, 10 kicks each round regardless of your success, so 60 kicks per game. The game doesn't even have navigation to leave or save once you've started, and the app won't remember your progress if you close out of it, making it difficult to pick up and play quickly.

Super Football Kick 3D definitely has potential--and it can be fun for some oneupmanship over OpenFeint--but it's currently only worth picking up if you can find it for free.
