Featuring great, energetic sound design, paired with anime-style visuals, Soccer Puzzle League provides a great sports atmosphere. However, the busy main menu screen and stats system can be a bit overwhelming at first. There are three different tutorials, which is a very comprehensive way to get comfortable with the game itself.
In Soccer Puzzle League, your goal is to match three icons to clear the field (such as a coin, blue glove, or foot.) The controls might be a little different than what most match-3 gamers are used to.
Rather than tapping to swap items on the screen, you need to tap the screen, hold your finger down, and then slide it across the three matching items. Additionally, you can match items that are not in a direct row or column, which actually ups the level of difficulty a bit. However, the “tap and hold” method of control slows down gameplay a little bit, and can be a bit frustrating at times.
Soccer Puzzle League keeps things fresh with a total of 18 teams to play against, tons of equipment upgrades and achievements, 6 levels of difficulty, and a handy auto-save feature (though the game doesn’t need it because of stability issues: there were no crashes during our play testing time.)
If you like matching games, definitely give Soccer Puzzle League a try!
