Tips ‘n’ Tricks for Football Strike – Multiplayer Soccer
When first diving into this competitive swipe for all, it can be a little daunting if not yet used to the finesse of the speed, aim and accuracy of the one touch controls. Therefore, if so, it is best to not waste valuable coins learning the ropes yet instead practice offline without any fear of penalty and reparation to hone skills and perfect shots before returning to the main stage to use those perfectly honed talents to dominate leagues and quickly rise up the ranks.
This may seem to be a slow waste of time at the start, yet if wanting to progress quickly, this is without a doubt the best way to leap-frog through levels and barriers!
Swipe Fast, Swipe True!
When starting out it may be tough to perfectly hit that precision shot every single time with both speed and accuracy. Yet in order to hit targets before opponents and to strike the back of the net before keepers can react and save shots, players need to swipe as quickly as possible in as straight a line as possible right up to the exact point of targeting. Doing so will increase power and speed yet over swiping will overshoot and end up as a missed shot.
Curl, Curl, Curl!
As opposed to the previous advice of striking fast and straight, the flip side of the coin is to warp the flight of the ball in both direction and speed as possible. This is exceptionally important in the free-kick shoot-out mode where hitting the target as quick as possible is far less important than tricking opponents with deceptive shots. The intensity of the curve will increase with different gear, so be sure to always take a few practice shots offline to gauge exactly how far the boundaries can be pushed while still being successful. Yet be sure to keep in mind
Control the Corners!
In the Free Kick mode of gameplay, targets are either stationary or moving depending on the level. Hitting moving targets offers more points, up to three for a bullseye, while stationary is either one or two and hitting the corners is two with a bonus. Yet more important than the point structuring system is that when competing often players will end up aiming for and shooting at the same target yet depending on shot power and timing the latter will end up missing no matter how perfectly on target. This means that it is best to aim for the most appealing target if shooting first and the least appealing target if shooting second. Therefore the constant, safe and very little targeted corner shot is more often than not the best way to ensure a steady income of quick points before switching back to high value targets when the timing serves.
Keep Patient when GoalKeeping!
As any good keeper knows, it is imperative to balance intuition with realities all the while striving for that sweet spot of perfect timing between the two. Thus the position of goal-keeper is unquestionably the most difficult and mentally arduous and demanding. This is also true is the digital world of Football Strike. Therefore before randomly rushing to dive this way or that, be sure to take a nanosecond to first stand ground and then quickly react as efficiently as possible once the shot has been taken.
It is extremely important to note however that swiping is extremely finicky and that avatars more often than not will dive in the wrong trajectory and / or out of dive. Consequently the goalkeeping function of Football Strike is both the most aggravating yet pleasing aspect which also makes it the most appealing and worth the practice and patience.
Personal Impressions // Review of Football Strike – Multiplayer Soccer
For quick arcade fun, Football Strike is a must have for all football fans who love quick action with simple swipes as opposed to long drawn out complicated matches. The controls are extremely simple to learn yet at times aggravatingly difficult to master. The graphics and sounds are clean and detailed to just the right amount finesse without making the game too heavy in download size. Yet as addictively appealing and fun as the game is, it does start to become quite monotonous through repeated gameplay. The career mode is also exuberantly stingy in that players only have three bars of energy to progress as far as possible yet rejuvenation times require hours of waiting which makes it very unappealing.
Therefore, if looking for a simple and fun striking game to fill in a few minutes every day, then Football Strike is a great option, yet if wanting a game with a little more depth and reward, perhaps this is not the game for you. Two and a half stars out of five.
