Whenever you weren’t kicking around a ball when you were younger, there were two ways to kill your football eagerness: with stickers and with bottle caps. And it’s precisely this second option, bottle caps, that’s represented in Soccer Stars, a football simulator for iPhone and Android that may seem rudimentary but that turns out to be very addictive.
Not everyone needs the rendered graphics of PES and FIFA: we can find pleasure in the simple things in life.
How to play has no secrets at all: each user has a team of players, taking turns to move them, and has to flick the ball to score a goal. There are now throw-ins and nothing prevents you from doing all sorts of tricks to get the ball into the back of your rival’s net.
You only need one finger to play, although you can use two or three if you require more accuracy: press on your player/cap, drag your finger to the opposite side to where you want to shoot depending on the force you want to use and aim your shot. As easy as that.

One of the most interesting aspects of this game developed by Miniclip is that we can play in multiplayer mode. It expands the entertainment possibilities, turning it into a very fun football game with huge doses of amusement, despite having nothing to do with the classic FIFA or Pro Evolution Soccer.
However, in this version of the app for iOS devices, unlike Android, you won’t have the chance to download any kind of APK hack or mod to get hold of cheats. In any case, it’s still very worthwhile.
