THIS GAME WAS NOT DESIGNED FOR TOUCH. IF TOUCH WILL BE YOUR ONLY CONTROL OPTION DO NOT PURCHASE THIS GAME. It supports keyboard and joystick and with those the game is a nice shootout at frantic speed levels. If playing with touch you will have to reduce the game speed (unless you are a touch wizard).
Find further game information and links to the free to play html5 version of this game at http://www.beppigames.de/hyperactivesoccer. If you like that consider purchasing. Notice that this android version does not (yet) contain a 2 player mode as in the html5 version.
You play a game of 5-a-side soccer in several SINGLEPLAYER modes for 2x90 seconds.
Game modes to choose from:
1. Tournament: You select a game speed from 5 levels, then your nation (from 16 available) and play a tournament against CPU controlled teams. If you win three games in succession (you start in quarterfinals) you win the tournament and celebrations follow. Note that in this mode a draw counts as a defeat (there is no penalty shootout).
2. Friendly match: You select a game speed from 5 levels, then two nations out of 16, yours and the CPU controlled opponents.
3. Singleplayer: You play against the CPU. This mode allows you to select brain and speed levels which are applied to both teams.
Brain level denotes the rate at which the AI makes decisions. There are 4 levels to choose from. Speed level denotes the running and shot speed. There are 6 levels to choose from. So in total you have 24 levels to play with.
If playing Tournament or Friendly match, the brain and speed levels are associated with the nation. The aforementioned 5 levels scale down the speed but the brain levels remain unchanged.

In the CONTROLS menu you configure the touch control:
"ONSCREEN ON/OFF" toggles if onscreen controls are active and visible. You will want to turn them off when playing with joystick or keyboard. "NORMAL/SMALL SIZE" toggles between normal sized and small sized controls. "SENSITIVITY" sets the sensitivity of the onscreen controls: This is (simplified) the amount of distance to move the virtual joystick to be registered as a new direction. For a low level keeping a running direction is easier while a high level allows for quicker direction changes. The default (3) should work best. "DESCRIPTION" leads to a short listing of all control alternatives.
The author was influenced by International Soccer (C64) and RealSports Soccer (VCS 2600). The celebrations are a homage to International Soccer.
