GOAL! Soccer Games That Aren’t Soccer
¡Ole, ole! It’s World Cup season, and many of you may be, at this very minute, enjoying the world’s favorite game. Football is very big in other nations, but admittedly, it doesn’t have the same exposure and fame here in the Philippines as other sports like basketball, billiards, and bowling. While some of your friends may be cheering on for their favorite teams and players, you may be lost in the craze.
The best way to appreciate football is to learn it, but the beautiful game can appeal to people who don’t have the faintest idea of how to play futbol. We found a couple of soccer-themed games that have the essence of soccer, but aren’t soccer at all. Take a look at what we found on the Web today:
Soccer is not just about footwork, it is also about teamwork. In Soccer Balls, brain and aim come together to create quite an addictive game.
Soccer Balls is a simple aiming game where you pass a ball around, keeping it in play. However, instead of hitting the ball into the goal, the objective of the game is to hit the referee with the ball. There are some switches, fans, and spikes to contend with, so make sure to make every ball count!
Soccer was always played on a well-maintained football field, although in some places, the Global Game is played on dirt roads and dusty schoolyards. Soccer balls don’t turn into powerful comets that pick up stars and break up towers, but that’s how the game works in Skyline Soccer.
Skyline Soccer is a simple aim-based game with a twist. Certain players possess powerful kicks that blast the ball to impossibly high heights. Collect stars, wreck structures, hit billboards, and get other bonuses as you pass the ball to your teammates. The game environment can be a bit distracting, so better keep your eye out for obstacles and other things that get in the way of a perfect pass.
There you have it: some of the best soccer games out there that don’t take place in well-kept football fields, or follow the same rules as soccer. While you won’t be painting your face or blowing vuvuzelas, you can catch up with World Cup madness with these cool, free games from the Web.
