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.

would be good at this, ho ho ho””]

In crossbar challenge, the aim is to hit the crossbar. Insert painfully predictable joke about team supported by workmate here.

10 word review: Addictive and polished – fun, and not just for sports fans.

To make it more challenging, you have to hit a target rather than just getting the ball into the net

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.

In this mode, you have lives which are lost when you miss a target

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.

Here, we are breaking panes of glass that make up the advert across the front of the goal

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.

That shot was so good, the goalkeeper has decided to pray to it

Arcadelife rating: 82/100
