"Power? Football? Oh my goodness that sounds awesome enough to be a mini crappy boring 1d flash sports game." If you had that kind of impression or thought upon reading the title of the game that I am about to review, prepare to be wrong.
The game is as simple as it can get. With only a few different keys you can start scoring goals like you have never seen before. Goals that are within the penalty box that is. You can pass, shoot, lob, tackle and slide. The keys are simplistic and easy to get used to. The match engine however is still under development. Several key features such as cards are not present, heading and some other stuff you would definitely notice if you played it. However, it is still impressive to note that for such a small java game, it had rules of fouls, penalties and even an offside system. Yes, offside is present in the game. The ability to save and view highlights is definitely something extremely exciting to look forward to. You can save how you tackle the opponent keeper and then kicking the ball onto the keeper making the ball bounce back or whatever. There is also an instant replay for good shots and goals. For so much in such an unexpected small java game, it is simply fantastic.
Glitches and bugs do exist in the game, with rather poor gameplay if lag is present. However, what is really innovative about the game is that the game is presented in a way of an MMO (massive multiplayer online) game. With levels and stats explained earlier, you also get to design your own badge or team kit (members only though). There are cups, leagues, ranked matches as well as the normal friendlies all giving you experience once played. You get to adjust and edit your team tactics, write opinions about other teams and even rate the teams after having a tough match with them. It is simply good for a game of that small, just extremely unexpected. Talking isn't going to do much of a help unless you try it out yourself. Do yourself a favour, just give their game a hit and tell me your comments either through the site or even talking to me after having a match in-game. My username: swiftpolar is ready to take you on. Please just don't trash me, I feel bad.
