Developer Dynamic Pixels has released Goal Defenseon iOS this month, and with the Olympics starting today it's having a double celebration by giving away an iPad 3 (or 'The New iPad'). 

Goal Defense is a sporting take on the tower defence genre, and sees you play as a team of underdogs (the blue team) who must hold off a team of lunk-headed jocks (the red team).

You do this by strategically setting up pitchers, cheerleaders and boxers to fight off your foes from grabbing the coveted 'Golden Bowl.'

Goal Defense is available for iPhone and iPad now, and is currently free to download [iTunes link].

A sporting chance

To bag a shiny new iPad to play the game on you'll need to help out the blue team though – through the power of your imagination.

All you need to do is to think up what would be the perfect sportsmen to join the blue team – what features and skills would they possess, and why would they be a good fit for the squad?

The most amusing and creative idea wins, so think away and we'll select the best after the closing date of August the 24th.
