PC (opens in a browser) - Power Challenge Soccer
Power Soccer is a 3D football game, which is played in your browser. Meaning that whilst it is by no means Fifa or PES, it can be played on virtually any computer provided you have a good internet connection.
Pointer control can be used as the sole input for gameplay. Move the cursor to move the direction and dribble with a player whilst in posession. Click into space or on another player to pass. When the opposition has the ball tackle with a left click (or equivelant). To shoot on goal aim the cursor at the net and click as with tackling or passing.
The game is played either against strangers or friends online. With points awarded for wins and goals. During the season you play for points for the team you support in upcoming fixtures, adding some competative rivalry. With points lost for leaving a game early, quitting is rare.
Whilst at times highlighting how advanced more established football titles are, Power Soccer offers the competition, challenge and fun expected from the game within a browser and for free ensuring many people without access to other higher spec games get the chance to give it a go and get involved.
