Online Football Game ‘Quick Hit’ Relaunches With Official NFL License
TechCrunch-reading football fans may remember a nifty, free online game we wrote about last year called Quick Hit that puts you at the helm of a virtual football team. The game doesn't involve the twitchy gameplay of gaming goliath Madden , but is instead built around strategy and play calling (though it does feature rich, 3D graphics to keep things interesting). You may also notice that the game's logo looks a little different from last year's: it now sports the official emblem of the NFL. And that's a big deal. You see, when Quick Hit launched last year it didn't have the NFL license. That meant it didn't have any of the official NFL teams, so you'd have to coach generic squads that don't actually exist. Which, to put it lightly, is a big buzzkill when you're trying to pretend you're Bill Walsh and are reigning over the fictitious San Francisco Tigers . But now Quick Hit has forged a deal with the NFL that gives it rights to all of the real teams, uniforms, and stadiums.
