Just create a game that involves football and there is no way it won’t be popular because who doesn’t like football? And if there is a game that proved to be a big deal you don’t even need to be original, just copy it. It seems like gaming companies are thinking this way because, after the release of Head Soccer back in 2013, a lot of them have tried to recreate this game in their own way. Masomo Gaming is one of those gaming companies and although their copy was good, they wanted to create a sequel that is up to date with current football stars and today’s graphics.
Head Ball 2 is very easy and simple to play – you and your online opponent play football with a caricature that is literally a head on a foot and attempts to beat each other. Your character can kick the ball up, down and use his head too as a way of scoring a goal. Match length is 90 seconds to try to score as much as you can and not concede in order to win. Also, you have a superpower which you can use once in a match and this can help you a lot. By upgrading and using your superpowers, you will unlock more superpower slots so you can later use multiple superpowers in a match. Throughout the game, you will unlock new and better characters and accessories which will upgrade your speed, jump, shot and size.
Although your player’s characteristics are the most important thing, they are nothing without your personal skill. Hardcore gamers will easily defeat you if you are just relying on your characteristics and superpowers. In order to be good at this game, you must focus on predicting the opponent’s next move and having a great timing of your reaction. Especially when it comes to his superpowers, give your best to avoid them and use yours in the right moment. Following these steps will make it easier for you to master this game.
Winning matches earns you a better position in a league and a promotion to a higher tier. You can join a team as well and that is the most interesting part. Within a team, you are able to request a match you personally customized (match length, game mode, goal area) and play the game to its fullest.
Like most of the current games, Head Ball 2 is energy based game. Each character has its own energy so having more characters will come in hand if you want to play this game for a long time without stopping. The thing that you will find annoying about this game is, of course, ads. Even though they pop out after every match, I can assure you that is the only time they appear and they don’t affect the game too much. After all, energy and ads are understandable because the game is free.
Being a huge football fan as I am, I really enjoyed playing this game and I had a great time scoring goals and winning. I would recommend it to everyone because I think you will have a lot of fun playing it whether you like the game of football or not. Different events and modes are making this game constantly amusing so you won’t feel bored no matter how long you’re playing it. Another thing that I want to point out is this game’s graphics because they left an impression on me as I think they are remarkable.
Head Ball 2 is available for both IOS and Android devices and as I said earlier, it is free of charge.
