Soccer Fan 2014
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Reviewed by Luke Patrick
The world over, it seems, there’s a genuine buzz in the air. And it has to do with the World Cup. Everyone and anyone is glued to a tele screen, nose inches from the pixels—unless they’re shouting at it from across the room.
Either way, there’s no better time to jump on the fervor bandwagon than with Soccer Fan 2014, from Rudolf Lokas.
The game offers a free, well-designed way to test your soccer knowledge out against either a computer player, or a friend sitting on the couch next to you. It’s exciting, good-looking and one-hundred percent fun.

Concept and Gameplay
We’ve seen plenty of footy trivia games before, but we’ve never quite seen one like Soccer Fan 2014. The game is quick on its toes, and offers a refreshingly original way to play.
Rather than blandly answering trivia questions, scoring points, and plodding ever onward, Soccer Fan 2014 lets you pick a team to represent. Your opponent does the same, and then you’re presented with a lineup of four men per team. Each represents a real position on a soccer team. Once that’s done, it’s off to the races . . . or the field, we suppose!
When you answer a question correctly, the ball moves up a position, starting with the goalkeeper. For ever positive response, you move closer to the enemy’s goal. And when you’ve finally hit that last forward, and score that final victory, you get a point!
If you miss a question at any point, the opponent gets the ball. They have the same opportunity to score, and through this, Soccer Fan 2014 manages to create a trivia environment that’s almost as intense as the game itself. And that’s saying something!

Design and Graphics
It also helps Soccer Fan 2014’s case immensely that it’s such a good-looking title. It truly is a wonder to behold, and we love the simple layout. All of your favorite teams are represented here, and the trivia questions themselves are top notch. We could not have asked for a better level of difficulty, nor a deeper pull into the bucket of footy history.
It’s obvious that the developers aren’t just trying to cash in on a quick phenomena. Soccer Fan 2014 truly is a well-designed title, and we enjoyed the way it presents itself immensely.
And did we mention that Soccer Fan 2014 is 100% free? For no cost at all, you can enjoy everything that it has to offer, both in terms of multiplayer and solo play. And with the World Cup reaching a fever pitch, there’s never been a better time to sit down and test your knowledge of the World’s Game.
We’re certainly glad we did, and we have no doubts that you’ll enjoy Soccer Fan 2014 just as much.
Soccer Fan 2014 requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
