Ever wanted to streak across a football field? Fight soccer hooligans with police batons? With Weird cup for Android you will be able to do this, and much more! By making fun of some of the top soccer players across the world, whilst giving you the ability to play a series of odd soccer themed mini games, you'll find that there are no two words to describe this game other than completely bonkers.
When you first start this game up, you will be taken to a character screen - from here, you will be able to choose what player to play as, and although at default there is only one standard character, you will be able to unlock more by completing challenges or by paying for them with real money. The cartoon depictions of some of the soccer players on these pages are hilarious, and the sound effects and descriptions that go along with them will certainly make you giggle.
When it comes to actual gameplay, the hilarity still plays a large role in this game. You will find yourself completing round after round of strange mini game. These mini games vary from streaking on a football pitch whilst dodging security, to hitting down soccer hooligans from trying to climb over a fence and into the stadium. There are many other mini games thrown in the mix, and each game will take just a few seconds to complete successfully.
In a similar fashion to the ever popular Dumb Ways to Die, the pace of the mini games will start to speed up as you begin to complete more, and you will be limited to five lives before your game is over. At the end of the game, your score will be tallied up, and you will be notified about any character unlocks.
Considering Weird Cup is free to download, and it has a decent amount of fun-filled gameplay, we don't see why you shouldn't give it a go.
