Flick Soccer! HD review (iPad)October 16, 2011
♫ “I know I used to be a real wild child
But now I am a Volvo-driving soccer mom”
10 word description: Flick freekick game with “after-touch”. Five different game modes.
10 word review: Addictive and polished – fun, and not just for sports fans.
You will like this if you enjoy: Flick target games: Flick Golf, Can Knockdown, Paper Toss, iQuarters, etc. Soccer / Football.
The good news: It’s essentially a more accessible and entertaining version of Deadball Specialist (also by Full Fat). Graphics are good. Controls work well, particularly the after-touch which is similar to the way Flick Golf (also by Full Fat) plays. Plenty of different modes and difficulty levels.
The bad news: If football annoys you on a fundamental level, you’re probably not going to want to play this game. I can’t blame you; I just have to point out that it is possible to enjoy it, even with a genetic hatred of the sport itself.
Arcadelife verdict: It’s a good game, and so much more fun than listening to workmate ‘A’ cheerfully taking the piss out of workmate ‘B’ on a Monday morning because the team that workmate ‘A’ supports (called “We”) won a game, and the team that workmate ‘B’ supports (called “You”) didn’t. Tragic. We all know that obsessively playing videogames is so much more manly.
