Are you excited for the World Cup? You should be, seeing as it’s the best sporting tournament in the world bar none. And there’s no better game to put you in the mood for it than Stickman Soccer 2018.

A sequel to, er, Stickman Soccer, this 2018 edition looks to offer a much deeper and more involving experience than its predecessor.

Make no mistake though, this is still an arcade experience at heart – with fast paced action and easy to grasp touch controls. However it’s added several gameplay features missing from the previous iteration, including red and yellow cards, fouls, headers, and even overhead kicks.

It’s the level of customisation where the game has improved massively though, and that’s before you even get to how many teams (over 150!) and players (over 75 million, yes – 75 million) are already included from the (kick) off.

You can actually edit players, logos, and club names to create your dream team – and then have them compete for over 300 cups, including the fabled Master Trophy.

Outside of this huge swathe of silverware to bag you can test your skills against human opponents both online and offline too. The latter even has controller support.

So if you’re looking for a warm up to the festival of football that’s about to occur in Russia, we’d advise you to check out Stickman Soccer 2018. Best of all, it’s absolutely free to download on both Google Play and the App Store.
