You Are The Ref

Art strip-based decision-making game gets an update.

Four Door Lemon are pleased to announce the launch of version 1.1 of You Are The Ref on the iPhone and iPod Touch.


The ‘You Are The Ref’ cult football art strip, which has been hugely popular with fans and players since 1957, features a series of awkward football refereeing decisions to challenge your knowledge of the rules of the beautiful game.


The updated version includes: -


- Support for Game Center including challenging achievements and competitive leaderboards.


- A new art gallery to allow viewing of Paul Trevillion’s highly recognisable artworks which are featured throughout gameplay.


- Retina display support for the iPhone 4 and the new iPod Touch giving amazing high resolution visuals.


- In response to one of the main areas of feedback we received, answers are now hidden whilst you  consider the situation allowing you to view and enjoy the associated image for longer.


“Great game, addictive as heck and brilliant presentation”, “Amazing”,  “Great game, perfect for football nutters” are just some of the comments received for the initial release and Four Door Lemon plan further updates in the coming months.


Keep watching for further updates and a version for iPad – coming soon!
