In this online soccer game, you go one-to-one against the soccer goalie. Use swiping movements to kick the ball past the goal tender and into the goal for points. My high score is 1,450 points. See if you can beat that!
This online soccer game is quite challenging and requires intense concentration. If you like this free soccer game, you might also enjoy the other free concentration games on this site, such as Slalom Ski Simulator and Slope.
You get 15 penalty kicks per round. The kick number is displayed in the lower right of the game. For example, you might see 4/15, which means you are on kick 4 of 15. Your running score total displays in the lower left. Higher-quality kicks are worth more points.
If the goal keeper blocks your kick, the message "Saved" appears, and you are awarded no points. When you do make a goal, you may see Good or even Excellent!, depending on the effectiveness of your kick.
It is important to aim your kicks carefully, because it is quite possible to kick the soccer ball above the crossbar or to the right and left of the goal. In those instances, you receive no points for the kick, of course.
Whenever you make a goal, the crowd in the soccer stadium cheers. When you miss, the crowd chants "Awwwwh!". You can mute the soccer game's sound effects and background music using the speaker icon in the upper right.
This is a concentration game. In terms of strategy, try mixing up your kicks. In other words, don't always aim for the same area of the goal. Kick right, then left, and so on.
Also, I've noticed that it is easy to overpower your kicks and thus miss the goal entirely. As you practice kicking, you will get better at judging the power needed.
In soccer, or football as it known outside the US, a penalty kick is awarded in cases when certain fouls have occurred in a specific location, that is, in the player's penalty area. For example, if a foul that would normally be punished by a free kick or indirect free kick occurs in the player's own penalty area, a penalty kick is awarded instead of a free kick or indirect free kick.
This free soccer game online simulates the penalty kick situation in a fairly realistic way. Just like in a soccer game, it's you versus the goalie, with your player positioned at the penalty spot taking a direct free kick at the goal from 12 yards distance.
Concentration games like this Penalty Kicks free soccer game online train important brain skills including attention and visual perception. Play games these often to give your brain a boost.
