This game is one of the best football game on the App Store! Absolutely outstanding! It's an arcade game, so no foul and no free kicks, but if you like captain Tsubasa, then this is the game for you! I really love it! It needs more depth as there aren't enough teams and modes, but even tho, I love it, it's with SSC 14, the best football game of the year!

To the dev, Korea one star only is a bit arsh, they aren't that bad. And it would be great to have a bit more depth, changes and more teams. I was a bit sad not to be able to play with Switzerland. A part from those little things, this game is amazing! It really reminds me of Captain Tsubasa!

does it have extra-time? what happens when/if a match ends draw? golden gool rule or it has penalty? i really like the penalty kicks in every football game

edit: matches outside the groups, like semifinals and the final

Ok so I just played another game and from what I see, the difficulty is pretty high (in a way), just like old games, it depends which team you are playing against, I played twice with Japan against Korea (easy win) and Mexico (more difficult and lost), beating the goalkeeper is very hard, he will catch/box away nearly every shots on target. Control feels good but a bit like NHL in the past (its good but you'll need a few minutes to adapt), there are no changes (no bench) and no shirts selection (I hope it will come in a future update), its a pure arcade game, but its a really nice one if you only want to have fun and dont really mind about the depth of the game. If you want a simulation and retro game, then go for SSC 14 which came out two days ago, its absolutely brilliant, if you want a more arcade game, then you'll definitely enjoy this one. I am a huge huge football (soccer) fan (I work in the football field), so I really dont regret spending 2 dollars for this game as its beautiful and really reminds me of all the old game I was playing on my SNES and GameBoy when I was a kid.
