Have you ever been stuck for something to do? Maybe you have spare time to fill or perhaps you just want to relax and have some fun? There are lots options for us to be entertained by but one of them is online games.
Have you ever played one of those games that make you feel like a real part of the action?
Nowadays, technology offers a huge amount of online games that not only provide the user with a great variety of entertainment but also give us the option of becoming real players with games such as chess, roulette or poker full of promotions and exclusive content; the same goes for football games. About this last option – one thing most football games have in common is the ability to hook you in and keep you entertained for hours on end. So, what free online options are available to you? There are also plenty of entertaining football games available on consoles and PC, but let’s concentrate on the free football games available online.
New Star Soccer
The classic game where you take your chosen character from the lower divisions to the highest point you can. You follow the career of your character as you live like a real player. You make decisions on life, training and the player’s trajectory. You even control key passes, shots and interceptions in the games themselves. It is easy to get lost in and is hard to stop playing so prepare to be immersed!
Soccer Balls 2
Soccer Balls 2 is like the football equivalent of Angry Birds; it is highly addictive, and hard to drop once you get started. It isn’t the standard format for a football game, but instead, it has you working out puzzling tasks where you are required to get the ball into the goals whilst avoiding obstacles, opposing players and referees who may show you the ‘red card’. If you like problem-solving then you will love this game, so be prepared to spend a lot of time on it!
Probably the most abstract on the list, this game requires the player to volley shots goalwards at oncoming zombies. You must keep hitting them until they die and then you have to score the winning goal. Your task is made easier with magic balls (metal, frozen, exploding etc). Do you have what it takes to defeat them?
Ultimate Football Management
Like any football management game, this one puts you in the driving seat at a football club of your choice. There are various leagues available (Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga etc) but you decide team selection, tactics, formations and signings and take your club on a quest for glory. Very similar in style to the well-known and loved ‘Football Manager’, you can spend hours on this game.
Jumpers for Goalposts
Very much in the mold of New Star Soccer, this is a career-based game that allows you to make decisions on the lifestyle and off-field activities of the player. It also puts you in control of in-game situations such as volleys, headers, crosses and the various actions a player might have to carry out in a game. Another game that is difficult to stop playing, why not see if you can go to the top?
A freekick game where the player competes in a small knockout tournament game by game, taking on the opponent and seeing if they can better them over a five-kick shootout. You can activate bonus features such as power shot, wet gloves and slow motion.
There are plenty of different football games with different formats and levels of addiction, so you really are spoilt for choice.
There are hundreds of different websites and games on offer for the keen gamer, so if you ever want to fill a spare moment, or you are keen to try something different, then there will always be something for you. There are plenty of other gaming options available and if you like a game with a competitive edge then there are options like online poker, roulette and other options where you can compete and even come away with a cash bonus!
