App description: Plekos is a fresh take on the popular Coin Soccer game, played on a wooden board with nails representing the players and a coin by way of a ball. In this version, the coin has been replaced by a bottle cap, and you can play against the computer, or have your own Cup championship, with up to eight players offline on the same device.

The game has been carefully crafted with a lot of attention to detail. Gameplay is simple and intuitive, yet very realistic. In the offline Cup mode for up to eight players, you can get together with your friends and the game will automatically set up the Cup table. Everyone is called to play at the right moment, and the competition kicks off!

You can also choose how many touches per turn and the number of goals scored to win.

Totmob, a division of Kinetics, has announced the release of the Plekos mobile game. The game, which is available for iOS and Android tablet devices and smart phones with larger screens, was launched on iTunes and Google Play earlier today.

Plekos is a carefully crafted replica of a very traditional soccer game. The original game is made out of a shallow wooden tray, with nails representing players. There are spaces cut out for the goals and the ball is usually a coin, or a bottle cap. In this mobile version the user can play against the machine, or against a friend on the same device. The game can also set up a championship for up to eight people on one device. To see a quick video of the game, please visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJhWG9_gBx4.

"When I was a kid we used to spend hours playing this game, said Orlando Shorter, founder of Kinetics and Totmob. In the days where video games werent around and we used to play on doorsteps and in the street, a bottle cap soccer board meant hours of fun. They were lovingly made with the help of an elder brother or a dad. We hope that this game can recapture that feel, by bringing a bunch of friends together around a tablet."

Visual Treatment:
Totmob has given the game a nostalgic touch by using plenty of wood textures and cutouts. At the same time all the menus are very clear, making it an easy game to navigate. There are some nice touches, like over 60 flags to choose from when setting up your team, which means that you`re certain to be able to play with your team`s colors. When a goal is scored, the animation is over the top, adding to the fun.

Sound Effects:
The game has a basic soundtrack, consisting of a crowd that murmurs all through the match, shouts when there`s a near miss, and cheers loudly when a goal is scored, while a sport commentator shouts "Goal!" A referee`s whistle sound marks the start and end of the game.

You can play from the get-go by tapping "QUICK PLAY," or you can set up a championship with your friends. By adjusting the settings on the first screen and tapping "NEXT" the process is very simple. To play you flick the bottle cap forward by running your finger over it, swiping it in the direction you want it to travel. The game physics are very realistic.

Oh, OK... I was expecting a game with a fresh-water sucker fish.
