Let me start by saying that Soccer Puzzle League is one of the best games I have reviewed this season on iOS. Soccer Puzzle League is a connect three puzzle, RPG style and a strategy game all in one. And boy, is it addictive! It got me hooked from the get go, and there’s been no looking back since.
If you are familiar with Match 3+ games, you can pretty much start playing right away. If not, the game contains a very interesting tutorial, and you will get the hang of it in just a couple of attempts. Soccer Puzzle League follows rules consistent to the Matching puzzle genre, and manages to transcend to a level absent in most of its peers.
You are squared off against the computer, where you can play and build your profile by learning new defensive or attacking skills. This is where you can customize according to your preference and add skill points to your preferred category. If you are an attacking player, and prefer to score goals, you can add skill points into the Shoot (SHT) category. Conversely, if playing defense is your style, then you can add the points to the Tackle (TKL) category. Your opponent will throw soccer balls at you, which will reduce your Damage Points (DP). The goal is to wear down your opponents damage points and score a goal. The one with the top score at the end of the game is the winner.
The game contains stellar graphics for a Matching Puzzle Game. I tested the game on an iPhone and an iPad, and i would definitely recommend the iPad for a better experience, as the game may seem a tad bit cramped on the iPhone.
Soccer Puzzle League is a superb mix of addictive gameplay and great graphics, and for just $0.99, it’s a steal. Kudos to the developers at Match3Studio. Great going guys.
Soccer Puzzle League is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.
