Product: Tiny Striker
Developer: Fat Fish Games
Format: iPhone, iPad
Genre: Arcade, Sports
Tiny Striker is a beautiful expression of simple touchscreen gameplay. A few choice swipes make you feel more like a football god than any amount of convoluted button presses ever could.
Watching a strike swerve in an almost perfect semi-circle around a wall then smash into the back of the net is a truly joyous experience.
There's not much to the game, but there's a compulsive rhythm to the swipey gameplay all the same. It turns out a ticking clock and a high score to chase is all an arcade kicker really needs.
The game sets you a series of ever-more challenging shots. To begin with it's just you and the goal, but as you score the game drops defenders and a goalkeeper in your path.
A brilliantly fast-paced arcade kickabout. Tiny Striker isn't all of The Beautiful Game, but it's enough of it that it's hard to resist
