Kenny Powers is Back: Eastbound and Down iPhone game

Eastbound and Down entered its second season last week, and it looks like Kenny Powers is getting his pitch back in Mexico. So what better way to celebrate than with a free iPhone app?

In the game Kenny Powers’ Home Run Fiesta: Deep Inside Mexico, you play as the batter who is trying to get a hit off of the infamous Powers. The controls are ridiculously simple: as the pitch comes toward you, shake the iPhone forward to swing the bat. The point is to hit as many home runs as possible.

Each time you leave the park, you get one step closer to the next level, and gain the adoration of female fans in the stands (because what’s more important to KP than the ladies?). Plus, each time you level up, you gain access to “exclusive Eastbound and Down content,” which turns out to be a few promotional pictures and a short video clip.

But you didn’t download this app for elementary gameplay, pixelated women and a few snapshots, did you? No, you came for the musings of a great pitching guru, and Kenny Powers definitely delivers. While the one liners are great, the best part of the game is the taunts that are available to you, including cheerleaders, a mariachi band and a zebra. As if the game wasn’t easy enough already, each time you taunt Kenny he will throw very slow, very hittable pitch.

Breaking it Down

+It’s free
+Great Kenny Power dialogue
+Classic, but very pretty, graphics

-You’ll probably only play it once or twice
-It’s too easy
-Not much depth

Verdict

Download it. You’ll some good laughs, and 20 minutes of simple gameplay, for free. Also, be sure to watch the new season of Eastbound and Down on Sundays at 10:30 p.m./9 p.m central on HBO. If you missed the first season, pick it up on Amazon.

    I’m glad that I don’t have an iphone because i would waste tons of time playing this. I grew up in a family of gamers so i easily get sucked into these type of games. maybe i will end up playing it someday.

    Kenny “F’ing” Powers is a hilarious character on “Eastbound and Down”. I’m totally okay with him getting his own iPhone app game. Hilarious.
