App description: iTable Soccer Online (ITS) is the very first iPhone videogame based on the legendary table football game, today an official sport named Table Football, played according to the traditional rules of the game.
In Table Football, each player has 11 figures, and the object of the game is to score by flicking the ball with the finger into the other sides net, following the rules set by the "Federation International Sport Table Football" (www.fistf.info).

There are three ways of playing iTS:

Minigames: 4 intuitive and addicting arcade games, (playable also offline), where players must hit the target with the ball, scoring as many points as possible (to enter world rankings). Exciting games also for those who have never played before and great for practice too.

Championship: a simulation game played against real opponents from all over the world in a thrilling online championship (INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED).

1 Vs 1 : match in the same iphone

Taking advantage of the iPhones special features, iTS game interface is extremely realistic. Thanks to its advanced physics engine, the figures are moved by running the finger on the display to simulate the touch that has made this sport an absolute legend; the strength of the shot depends on what movement is made. This creates endless actions, breathtaking challenges for hours and hours of sheer fun.

Graphics are fully 3D, so players can zoom in/out and shift the camera wherever they like (with two different shots).

At the end of each game, the system saves all the results, so players can then check statistics and rankings in real time with total points, matches won and lost, goals scored and conceded. The results can also be viewed on the www.itablesoccer.com website.

iTable Soccer Online "Championship" is a simulation game, so players need a quick training session to understand the basic rules, which are inspired from those set by the International Federation. The application has a specific help area with video tutorials to quickly master the game.

Following quick registration on the multiplayer server, each player can configure his team by choosing from among the kits of 84 countries (first kit and second for away matches), then type and weight of the base of the figures (which gives different shooting speed and accuracy) and line up.

Multiplayer demo video posted to

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYjadJja0UY

I will also soon (in 1-2 days) post a more elaborate post on the game to the multiplayer update / news catch-up thread ( http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?p=419463 ) and, finally, may also update the main multiplayer article here at the User Reviews forum (see http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=34037 ). The latter will only be done later (if the quality of the title warrants it, that is).

NOTE: the usual remarks explained at the bottom of http://forums.toucharcade.com/showpo...5&postcount=10 (see section “4. The videos”) apply – that is, 3G vs. 3G S speed comparison; only one player etc.

It caught my eye at first, but I started losing interested while I watched the dev struggle to move the camera around and even play the game...

I'd need to see another video before I would reconsider.

My videos aren't advertisement or developer videos - that is, one can't expect a perfectly engineered one. Their sole reason is to show you how one can start multiplayer, what multiplayer options there are and also show what the game is about. They are NOT suited for a more complete introduction to the game, the physics it uses, all the tricks of the control etc.

Then I suppose I didn't realize what you were trying to achieve with the video.

I'd have taken your word for it (or the description) that it has working multiplayer.

And I still stand by overall feeling that it made the game look clumsy.

The video was specifically designed to show how multiplayer works. If you think the video looks bad then great!!! but probably best to keep it to yourself because you don't want to look silly eh?

To the Devs, thanks for the Vid and i'm going to give this one a try, after all its only 1.99 the price of a NZ pint of beer........mmmmm beer

I look silly for voicing my opinion, and asking for an additional video properly showing off gameplay?

Apparently unless you're a fanboy, you're not welcome in threads. I guess I missed the purpose of Touch Arcade merely being a place for users to stroke developers' egos.

*Shrug*

had nabbed this a while ago when it went on sale, was a shame to see it dip under the radar as it is quite a polished title.

it does take a long time to get the hang of flicking the ball around the pitch tho and sadly i wasnt motivated to perevere when noone was online to play against

should have been a freebie for a couple days to build up a community. really good attempt at subbuteo tho so maybe i'll give it another bash!

Currently playing: Joe Dever's Lone Wolf and FM2014

I'm not a dev. Ughii is right, the video could have been better, but, again, it's not an "official" one, just a quick video showing how the multiplayer should be started. The devs themselves would surely have spent far more time with planning and, then, shooting and post-processing the video than me. My video is NOT trying to be an all-in-one one, as is also explained in my Multiplayer bible.
