Wonderfully simple with a retro feel

Same device multiplayer, simple fun, completely free
A theme song would have been a great addition
Here is a game that helps to relive the wonderful feeling of playing air hockey with your friends in arcades, hotels, and everywhere else it was available. Glory Hockey for Android brings back the fun and removes the need to purchase those pesky tokens that the table game required in order to function.
The game plays really smoothly and presents tons of fun. Simply drag your virtual paddle across the playing field to project the puck and try to score a goal on your opponent. The game may be easy on the lower difficulty, but at the final one it takes a player with skill and a trained finger in order to defeat the AI.
In terms of graphics the game keeps a simple design, yet modern design. Even the sound effects help players relive the fun they had playing, as they are an almost replica of the ones produced by the table game. Navigating the menu is a more calming experience due to the relaxing piano sounds produced when tapping any of the game’s buttons (this can be quite helpful after you have lost several games on MAD difficulty).
Overall Glory Hockey for Android is an extremely enjoyable game with a very retro feeling to it. The inclusion of same device multiplayer is an added bonus that, if you find the right player, can provide countless hours of enjoyment and friendly smack-talk. In terms of single player the game is still plenty of fun, though at a more reduced level.
