NEW YORK and LONDON, Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Topps Company, Inc. today released TOPPS KICKSM, the exclusive Barclays Premier League digital trading card game for iPhone and iPod touch. Available now on the App Store, TOPPS KICK brings to life everything English football fans love about collecting and trading their favourite players—and more—in a casual, social game.
In TOPPS KICK, Barclays Premier League football fans compete with other fans from around the world to build the best collection of Barclays Premier League trading cards. Throughout the course of the season, fans will deftly play their cards to earn points, chase ultra-rare cards, unlock special awards, compete in football trivia contests, earn coins, and engage with an international community of football card collectors.
TOPPS KICK offers a set of fun features that includes:
Authentic and Official Collecting – Collect singles or multiples of over 100 of today's best Barclays Premier League football stars on the exclusive Topps digital trading cards. New players added weekly.
Real-time Valuation – Is your favourite player in a slump? Cards change in value based on actual on-the-pitch performance, all in real-time. Use all-new interactive charts, player rankings, and heat indexes to scope out players on form or relegated to the bench.
Real People, Real Trades – Football isn't played by robots, and neither should trading card games. Engage, chat, and trade with your football friends or foes, not with bots or simulators, using trade talk and deep Facebook and Twitter integration.
Strategic Trading – Can't get your club's captain or that international superstar? Try 3-for-1 trading to get the rarest and most coveted of cards, but choose your cards and your trading partners wisely.
Creative Collections – Mix and match your collection and get rewarded by unlocking fun and interesting awards.
Always On, Always New – Don't just collect. Compete in head-to-head challenges, trivia contests, and scavenger hunts. Earn entry into our exclusive TOPPS KICK VIP Club. Learn about your favourite footballers, from their stats to their superstitions, and test your knowledge of the sport.
