Our Rating: ★★★☆☆ :: SHALLOW CHARM :: Read Our Full Review >>

Cute but ultimately a little too simple, Pixel Cup Soccer might entertain for a brief time but it's a little too shallow for anything weightier than that.

What's New

This new version features important improvements on the game controls:
- The virtual control now gives visual feedback when you move it.
- There is a clearer difference between a push pass and a chip pass. To do a push pass you tap the pass button very briefly. To do a chip pass you tap the pass button for a longer moment, just like you do with the shot button to get a power shot.
- The short range push passes have also been improved in speed and accuracy.
Other changes include a new app icon and several minor bug fixes and improvements. Also, the help screen is now displayed before the first game you play.
