With the Champions League and World Cup Qualifiers in full swing, what better way is there to celebrate the beautiful game in gaming terms than by playing Football Cup from Viaden? This well-presented game is sure to please fans of all ages and levels of fandom, and it may just be good enough to even appeal to those who aren't normally fans of football.
With all of the new gaming innovations out there, it almost seems surprising to say that newer games that combine great presentations with a number of cool gameplay features rarely come along. Football Cup is definitely one of those great games that falls firmly into that category.
The presentation will likely be the first thing you notice about this one. Fans of the beautiful game will instantly recognize the background as being very similar to that of the logo of the most prestigious club competition in European football. The music one could give or take; you will either find it catchy or annoying (luckily you can turn it off if it's the latter). The effects round out the solid presentational features.
A wealth of cool features finely complements the gameplay. Each time you make a winning combination, the reels that made the win are held in place and the ones that didn't are re-spun, effectively giving you another chance to win on each spin. The gamble bonus is also souped-up, as it asks you to beat the goalie by picking a corner of the goal to shoot at. A regular wild symbol and pick-em bonus round out the features.
If you want to go for footballing glory, you will need to make your bet and then give the reels a spin by pushing the "spin" button. The only other decision you will need to make is to gamble any possible winnings, and to pick which corner to shoot at if you do.
