Flick Football Review
- Easy to play, hard to master flick-style gameplay.
- Plenty of countries to choose from.
- Announcer can be switched off.
- No native iTunes support.
- Curving is an imprecise science.
With the World Cup right around the corner, this is the perfect App to pass around while waiting for commercials to end or to fill the minutes until kick-off starts - either way, it's a great game.

Flick Football by Neon Play joins other simple endless flick-based physics games with its soccer-based free kick style. Much like its paper-throwing, pigskin kicking and coin-bouncing compatriots there's an art to successfully scoring each goal, but while serious players can duke it out for the high-scores, casual gamers can easily while-away free seconds of their day to occasionally score big and earn bragging rights on Facebook.
Basic flicks will kick the ball in the direction you indicate with its power modified by the speed of your flick and curving shots is as easy as curving your flicks. Sudden Death mode is exactly what the title implies, with players being shifted around the free goal box as they score to increase the difficulty. Vs The Clock mode gives you a time-limit to score as many points as possible, however failure will only reset your multiplier, but accurate shots can result in free points and additional time.
The game is played in 3D with a simple flat 2D audience. The visuals are bright and it's nice to see some animation on the soccer players, if only to make them feel less like rag-dolls blocking your kicks. An announcer has been included and suffers from the same repetitive issues in most sports titles, but each country is called out individually and the acting is energetic.
Flick Football is a great time-waster and with two game modes to master you'll have plenty of opportunities to score that perfect goal.
