Football is, without a doubt, the most followed sport ever. As such, it is the sport with maybe the most impact on popular culture – football-related merchandise is all over the place, football stars are influencing our shopping decisions, sometimes even the way we vote, and it certainly influences our choice of games to play. People play football-related video games on all their devices, in many forms – seriously and casually alike. Today, we’re going to take a look on the casual side of the football-related video game market, to see three games that are perfect for the football fan in you.
FIFA 17 Companion App
Released this September, the smartphone companion for EA Sports’ FIFA 17 is the app for a more serious football PC gamer. It’s all about the FIFA Ultimate Team play mode, that mixes franchise management and fantasy football in a manner unique to the game. Players can measure their team building skills against those of players from all over the world.
The FIFA 17 Companion app works with the the full game running on PC and all major console platforms. It is available on Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.
If FIFA 17 is about new football, Shoot! is about the old one. It is one of the best casino games you can play at All Slots, one of best online casinos out there. Shoot! takes its players on a trip to the golden age of the sport, and pays a tribute to one of the longest-running football magazines: Shoot! The game, one of the most played slot machines at the All Slots Casino, has a retro look and feel, reviving not only the legendary players of the past – like Cruyff, Best, Pele, Maradona, and Beckenbauer – but also the times when we would collect stickers to put in our albums. All this in a playful and convenient way, on a desktop computer or a mobile device.
New Star Soccer
New Star Soccer is not a new game, but it’s one that should be on the smartphones of all avid football video gamers. At first, it seems like a simple, casual game where you have to shoot goals and overcome various obstacles. A cheap in-app purchase will unlock its “career” mode, though, where you take over the life of a football player, leading him through a career and more. Aside from improving his stats, you can also manage the player’s decisions in other aspects of life, like what to spend his wage on – cars, race horses, houses – which will all have their impact on his stats – like happiness and fitness – and, indirectly, on his career.
