Top Android Game: Pocket Soccer

Top Android Game: Pocket Soccer

  • Size: 6.21MB (apps2SD enabled)
  • Category: Games
  • Price: Free



To start, choose either 1 or 2 player mode (2 player best suited for an Android tablet because of the large screen real-estate). Then, choose which of the over 60 countries you’d like to represent (e.g. Brazil, England, or the USA). For fans of some of the smaller countries in the World Cup, you’ll enjoy the fact that you’ll find them on the list (e.g. Angola, Cameroon, or Trinidad and Tobego).

The gameplay itself is extremely simple and relatively similar to the Glow Hockey Android Game, with its bouncing walls and crazy angled shots. Each team has three players or “buttons” represented by the country’s flag. Flick your players toward the ball to ricochet it and shoot or send them backwards to defend your goal. The game itself is turn-based, meaning you have a maximum of five seconds to decide what you want to do and move a player. Once you move or the five seconds has expired, it will be your opponent’s turn. The first team to score 10 goals is the winner. As you win you’ll unlock new fields, different balls, and various crowds to spice up the game.

Pros:

  • An addicting hybrid of soccer and air hockey
  • 60+ countries to choose from
  • 1 and 2 player modes



Areas of improvement:

  • Online multiplayer mode is a must!



Conclusion: A fast-paced, simple, entertaining virtual soccer Android game.

  1. I think subbuteo (https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Subbuteo) is the word you’re looking for…

    Nice game! Took a few tries to get it to run on my SGS, but it’s good, and the computer is pretty tough to beat!

  2. If you want to play similar game in Online Multiplayer mode across Android, Windows Phone, Windows 8 then download “Air Soccer Fever” on all three platforms.
