Such a dumb soccer game it's fun

Soccer Physics
Crazy Soccer

For those who like crazy physics and fast paced sports.

The trouble is the players get mixed up sometimes, and you never know how they'll respond: they'll either jump, or they'll kick. Even more wacky, hilarious scenarios pop up after every goal, like slippery grass or a beach ball instead of a soccer ball. Try to get past the wackiness to score more goals than your opponent.

This is soccer at its funniest, with every goal and game a bit funnier than the last. The wonky controls coupled with the hilarious extra scenarios make the game silly and fun at the same time. The pixel-based graphics add in a retro flair that's a real throwback to the old-school console days.
