There are 3 of them do date:

Foosball
Table Football
Foosball World Cup

Haven't tried them. All released in the past 2 days. One concern, at least for some, is that it seems you move all players on your team at the same time, rather than a row individually.

Ehhhhh that doesn't sound very good. Table football looks kinda cool, it says up to 6 players? Man that would be very tough to make work I'd imagine

A question:
why Apple tend to release same kind of apps in the the same days?
It's not the first time that the same kind of application is released in 2-3 days.
Is it a big coincidence?

I remember it happened the same for PocketGuitar kind of app and iPhysics (Trace), but also for other ones I'm not remembering.

What do you think?

I've purchased Foosball World Cup and I like it. Here are some facts:

- you can move all players or just one row
- you can set players layout (4-3-2, 3-4-2, 3-3-3)
- you can select field background, sound effect on/off and music off or one of the two sound track
- you can set ball speed and 4 skill levels
- 1 and 2 players
- Practice mode

In resume you can move the players (all or by row) but they will kick automatically (there's no way to e.g. control the ball).

I hope it helps. As I said I like the game.

Yea that does help a lot... I'm gonna wait and see if anyone has the other one/s before I make a decision. Thanks for the advice..
