Addictive Football v1.5

Another update and quite a big change to the game.

We've now included after-touch so you can bend the ball - great for putting the ball past the keepers. It only bends the ball slightly but it's just enough.

The pitch size for the grass and concrete pitches has been increased in width slightly. They originally looked a bit narrow. The astro and indoor pitches are unaltered.

The goal kick has also been improved. If you use the Shoot key to take your goal kick (boot it upfield) the ball will grow in size to show height and will go much further than before.

New demo version can be found at

If you like the game it can be purchased from

Also, don't forget to play the demo and then fill in the Addictive Football Survey. By sending it to us you can receive a 15% off discount code which can be used on any of our games.

We'd love to get your feedback on the new improvements to the game so please post your comments here or send us an email.

Bend it like Beckham

Currently working on some code for the game which will give you the option of applying after-touch to a shot. If you don't know what after-touch is, it basically allows you to curve the ball slightly to the left or right when a shot is taken.

This was one of the features suggested by a number of people who completed the Addictive Football Survey.

If you haven't filled the survey in then please do go to the link above and give us your feedback. As a thank you we'll give you a 15% off discount code for any of our games.

The after-touch code seems to be working pretty well so far but some more tweaks are still needed. We're also going to include the option so you can play with it on or off. This new feature will be added to the next build of the game which should be released before Christmas.

We've just put up a very short survey to do with Addictive Football and would really appreciate it if you'd take the time to fill it in. It's only 8 short questions which should take a couple of minutes (max!) to complete.

The survey can be found at

If you fill in the survey and supply your email address we'll send you a 15% off Discount Code for any of our games. It's our way of saying a big Thank You for helping us out. As always your email address will be treated with complete privacy and will not be passed onto any other organisations.

A tiny, tiny change

Well, I promised myself that I wouldn't do any changes at least for another week but I couldn't resist!

A new version has been uploaded (v1.4.1) which has a tiny change to how the pass indicator works. Previously the team mate you could pass to had an arrow above his head. If he runs off screen though the arrow stays above his head meaning you can't see who to pass too!

The new version fixes this so if your team mate runs off screen the arrow stays on screen pointing to where he is upfield. It makes life (and passing!) a lot easier now.
