I don't think it has any of what you just listed.

Tried this one out, and its a blast for pickup and play. At the start of the game you choose a country to play from 9 total, and each one varies in difficulty. All the gameplay involves is you shooting/flicking the puck at the goal with a goalie defending it, and trying to score as many goals in a row as you can. The controls work great, shooting is accurate and fun, you just hold the puck down and drag it to wherever you want to take your shot from and a power meter will go up and down to determine the strength of your shot while your dragging/holding, when ready just let go or flick to the direction you want the puck to go. The movement of the puck is fast and fluid, the higher the power meter is when you shoot the stronger and higher the puck will fly. There is no time limit or clock in the game you just shoot for however long you want. The A.I. (the computer goalie) in the game is surprisingly good and will block your shots like a real goalie. As you drag and move the puck around before your shot and try to fake out the goalie, he will follow your movements and be ready to try and block realistically. Your current amount of goals scored will be displayed on the top left, and your best amount of goals scored in a row will displayed to the right. You will always be trying to surpass your best amount of goals scored.

Sounds in the game are good, realistic hockey sounds, from the puck shots, to the puck hitting the metal post, to the goal buzzer, even the faded crowd in the background isn't bad. Graphics/animation are polished and good but keep in mind its just basically one screen of gameplay in the game, you just face a goal/goalie and shoot to score. Obviously this is a pickup and play game, but its a real good time killer. Highly recommended for a $.99 game to play with when your bored and have a few minutes to kill. Those minutes may rack up though, while its not a game loaded with content, its addictive and a lot of fun to play.
