downloading the Lite version right now, where you're able to play 1 period Flyers vs. Blackhawks. If i like the game, I'm gonna buy it right away.

Hold up, people; the only place you can get the lite or regular versions at this instant is the iTunes Australia store, and any U.S. account can't purchase it there. Why the F release it in Australia first? Hopefully it will be in the iTunes US store by tomorrow morn.

so far..

+ 41 or 82 game season.
+ 2, 5, 10, and 20 min periods.
+ real time last min option.
+ camera options. this had me worried, but not no more.
+ sim season games.
+ everything in the menus is very responsive
+ phone call or text, load game back up picks up where you left off.
+ HUGE plus right here, you can make the CPU play the CPU. Very nice!!

- No center ice team logos booooo. Probably bc of the arena being the same.
- 3 or 4 guys on the bench looks funny lol.
- End of period they walk into the crowd lol.
- no create a player.
- can't edit the players names.
- no FA pool from what I have seen.

The game crashes way too much. I havent been able to complete a single period yet.
# 8 Steven547 @ 08/28/10 08:17 PM
I had a few crashes as well. Also, does anyone know how to view the SEASON stat leaders? During the playoffs, you can only view the playoff leaders. I want to look back at the season leaders. Anyway how?
# 9 Fiddy @ 08/29/10 08:12 AM
no crashes yet for me..

i only play 2 min periods. is that why? im not giving it enough time to crash on me lol. i also just sim a lot of seasons as well.

2 mins (real time), slow = good times!!

It was pretty crashy on my iPod, but I rebooted, and then played a few shootouts in a row with no issues, so try rebooting your device.

You can even call up/send down guys to the minors. Supposedly a roster update is coming. Then it's season mode! I'm impressed with all the settings/options. Yeah the graphics aren't out of this world, but it's console hockey on your phone, what do ya want!!
