Stickman Soccer is a recent addition to the App Store that offers iDevice owners, and particularly soccer fans, a fun sports experience starring teams of “stickmen.” There are times when stickmen work well in iOS apps – think of Stickman Golf, for example – and Stickman Soccer looks to be in the same league (no pun intended, of course!).
In the app, iDevice users can enjoy three game modes (Quick Game, Seasons, and Training Mode), and a bonus mode – Street Soccer – is also available. You can configure your team to consist either of four players or the conventional 11 players, and three difficulty levels aim to ensure a degree of longterm motivation.
Two running modes (automatic or manual) allow for easier or more precise control, and 32 different soccer teams are available to choose from. As outlined in the app’s release notes:
Experience pure soccer fun with fast paced gameplay, an astonishing atmosphere, stunning smooth animations, simple controls, insane action and tons of replay value. Choose your national soccer team and rank up while playing various seasons in spectacular stadiums or simple dominate in street soccer style matches. Decide whether you want full control over your players with manual running and shoot timing or use the automatic running mode where you have control over precise pass timing and watch your players tackle your opponents. Choose your favorite national soccer team from more than 32 different skilled teams and lead them to glory!
The app is actually created by the developers of another popular stickmen game, Stick Stunt Biker, and we’ve been fans of that particular application since it launched, back in 2010.
