App of the Week: ‘NFL Connect’ comes to Windows Store just in time for the Super Bowl

With the Super Bowl less than two weeks away, now is a great time to download the “NFL Connect” app from the Windows Store so you can play live alongside your favorite NFL games.

“NFL Connect” takes the best elements of watching the game with your friends, and enhances them with direct head-to-head competition – all on your Windows device.

Here’s how the app works: The game board features key players and plays, and you manage game tiles in a race to be the first to “connect” four tiles in a row based on the actual events of the live game. Players can use weapons to mess up their opponents’ gameplay.

Each player also gets power-ups to increase their chances of winning. And the best part? Built-in chat features allow players to trash talk each other in true Richard Sherman-Michael Crabtree fashion!

Players can log into the game using Facebook Connect or create their own account with game publisher OneUp Games.

Download “NFL Connect” from the Windows Store now! Hut! Hut! Hike!
