Well, this needs iOS 5.1 for whatever reason, so I can't test it in my only iOS device (am poor)

No, you don't understand. I can install iOS 5.1 or 6.0.1 in my device, however that will render it very slow.

I have a 3GS. It's running fine in 4.3.3 and I don't want to risk "upgrading" to anything, specially 5.x which IS slow on 3GS.

I can't imagine why people keep saying that. It is not the typical way Apple operates.

However, WM6 -> WP7 -> WP8 is a rather extreme "forced obsolescence" to take an example regarding other portable units. And incidentally the last WM6 phone, the HTC HD2, were produced some months AFTER the iPhone 3GS in question. Also, i highly doubt many, if any, android phones from 2009 can run android 4 at all, let alone 4.2. And especially not by official means.

The only reason Apple seem to get that rep is because people want the latest and newest, which usually means the model launched once every year. However, most companies in this industry have at least a once a year release cycle, usually more often.

I understand. Anyway I have still not tested Active Soccer on 3GS so i don't know how it runs, to be honest.

This is the official trailer, if you want to have a look

This game is just.....

amazing!!!!

I didnt even know it existed until i read this thread, im always on the app store but the game never stood out for me.

Ever since sensible soccer football games have appeared trying to "do a sensi" and they turn out to be rubbish.

From the moment i started the app i just sat there listening to the title music, its not just a football song, its also a really really good tune! i just sat there tapping my foot and loving it.

The game started and i was pleased to see plenty of options, touch screen controls are usually awful to play games, especially football. This game feels so easy to pick up, liquid smooth graphics, good sound, lots of fun to be had. Im playing on IOS but im now going to download the version for android and play on my s4, i hope it supports joypads (USB OTG ps3 pad plugged into usb port) if not please add support in next update.

Well, im off to play football now thanks for this amazing game Thefoxsoft!
