Out There

Wanna play football (or soccer) on your iPhone?

There are three new apps for that

They say you wait to catch a bus for ages and then three arrive together.

Apparently it has more to do with human psychology and pattern recognition than bus schedules though, so I suppose there’s some sort of clustering of meme theory that can account for receiving three press releases about iPhone football games in one day.

Maybe...

Anyhow, to get down to business.

Touch Soccer 3D

Sauce Digital has just launched its fifth game, Touch Soccer 3D in the US [App Store Link] and Touch Football 3D elsewhere [App Store Link], which is available now, priced 99c, €0.79 or 59p.

Taking a novel, portrait screen perspective, you can see how the cartoony game, which has you directly controlling the ball and your movement around the pitch (sort of a bodily first person view), against team of wobbly opposition players, works in the following video.

Magnetic Sports Soccer Alternatively, you could try out Bulkypix's Magnetic Sports Soccer - due out on Monday 14th December. Based on table football or foosball, it includes tilt controls as well as magnetic forces. Most neatly, there's also a head-to-head multiplayer mode (supporting local/online wi-fi, Bluetooth or 3G), and online results and achievements are enabled via the OpenFeint social network. You can see a video of the multiplayer mode here.

Goals! Arcade Soccer Finally, The Game Creators have taken inspiration from the much loved Sensible Soccer with its Goals! Arcade Soccer. It’s a topdown football game of the old school variety, that keeps the action fast and frantic.

It’s out now, priced 99c, €0.79 or 59p. See how it works below.
