User guide

This football game is referring to the European Football (Soccer) and not the American Football.

It requires player to move single character into rival's goal by a turn-based game. Your mission in the game is to go into rival's goal.

Basic movement:

  • At the start of the game, you'll see a player in the center of the stadium.
  • To move, touch a player and draw a line with the Stylus from the player to one of the 8 collindant corners.
  • After that, you'll see that the player will move to the corner touched and a line of your color appear.
  • This is the basic movement, when a basic movement is made, the players turn change automatically.

You can't do a movement overwriting other line, only can do in a clean line.


  • If you do a basic movement but the corner was painted (by you or your rival) already, you will bounce.
  • When you bounce, your movement is increased, the turn don't change and you can make another basic movement.
  • You can make any number of bounces on one turn, this is the best way to take advantage to your rival.
  • Also, you can bounce on the walls, but you can't do basic movement overwriting a wall.

The way to win is to make a point, make a basic movement into your rival's goal.
