Glad to see this freebie, I almost jumped on Pixel Cup Soccer when it launched but there were some other soccer games I favored instead. PCS got reasonable reviews and looks promising.

Hi, please find below some key tips to improve your gameplay!

Push Passes are an essential part of Pixel Cup Soccer gameplay. Here you can see how you can make your way through the opponents defenses using push passes.

Chip Passes are also very useful and can be also used as centers. You need to hold the pass button for a moment to do a chip pass instead of a push pass. They combine nicely with headers to create deadly attacks.

The Strong Curve Ball is one of the secrets for beating even the best goalkeepers. Remember to move up or down while holding the shot button for a moment to power charge your curve ball!

The Long Pass is another tool to beat your opponent in a very fast move. Use the shot button to put the ball deep into your opponents field. Then the use the shot button again to put the ball deep in the net!

This is a REALLY good soccer game. Controls are easy and the AI is competitive but not too difficult. Highly recommend it, worth more than the $1 original price. If you played NHL94 this has the same vibe. I thoroughly enjoyed it! I'd love to see the dev do more.

It was free US too, but the sale ended... Th sale originally started on June 30th and ended early today. A late post, as it was free for 2 full days

The free version is just a race against time to score as many goals as possible, not a full soccer league play game.

148 Review 3 out 5 STars http://www.148apps.com/reviews/pixel-cup-soccer-review/
Passing is a bit sluggish, meaning it’s often more effective to pass the ball to one player then run with it, straight to goal before trying to chip it in. That makes Pixel Cup Soccer a fairly fast-paced game that almost reminds me of the arcade nature of the likes of NBA Jam. There’s certainly enough running back and forth to be reminiscent, but it’s not as much fun. Pixel Cup Soccer doesn’t have the depth to sustain any extended sessions. It’s a passing distraction more than anything else.

TA Review 3 1/2 out 5 STars http://toucharcade.com/2014/06/06/pi...soccer-review/
The art and fast-paced action, any inaccuracies feel like they're just part of the game's charm. This is not meant to be a realistic soccer simulation, and if it was claimed to be a revival of an actual early-90's soccer game. Just, again, don't expect hardcore soccer simulation, but the kind of soccer game you'd play on a Sega Genesis back in 1994.
