Penalty Kick Wiz
Football is one of the most popular sports for a reason, but the reason keeps changing depending on who you ask though the excitement of moments like Penalty Kick Wiz certainly contributes. Yes, a football match can be so long, intense, and neck-and-neck that it all comes down to the player-versus-player battle of the penalty kick. This is a third-person game about trying to score goals as the attacker and block them as the defender. It's all about trying to get into the heads of your opponents and being able to react as quickly as you can to make sure that your team stays in the lead.
About Penalty Kick Wiz
Though the world of football is a huge one with teams and individual players getting a lot of attention, penalty kicks bring it down to the individual. It creates the closest thing that the game has to a one-on-one fight where it's just an attacker and a defender. No matter which side you're on, you can feel the tension of the situation. This is a game-defining event where even the slightest mistake can cost you the whole game. It captures the idea of a physical test as much as it is a mental one.
How to Play
Penalty Kick Wiz is contained to a game screen that only requires you to use the mouse to make and block shots. The main gameplay UI element appears when you're making a shot. A target will move back and forth along the bottom of the net. By clicking the left mouse button, you can stop the target and take the shot toward where it stopped. When you are blocking, the target doesn't appear until after the attacker decides to take the shot. Once it does appear, you can click the target to dive toward it in an attempt to block the shot.
Each team has five attempts to score points, as shown in the top left corner of the screen. A winner is determined once one side makes more goals than is possible for the other side to match. In the case of a tie, additional shots will be taken. Your objective is to beat as many teams in sequence in order to win cups.
Tips and Tricks
There's not much to this game, but the key factors are timing and versatility. Try to avoid making the same shot twice to keep the goalie on his toes. When blocking, be sure not to dive too early and try to time it with the attacker just before he takes the shot.
