Joe Barilla's Pocket Hockey is a strategic game of 2-on-2 hockey!
If you're looking for more depth and skill than a quick game of air hockey, look no further.
Players take turns trying to knock the puck into the net, using a system similar to pool or billiards. Body check your opponents out of the way, and fire the puck in!
Play against the computer in one of three difficulty levels. Try the PAIN difficulty for a real challenge.
School your buddy! Play head-to-head against a friend on a single iPhone or iPod Touch.
If things aren't going your way, start a fight and give your opponent a penalty, for a 2-on-1 advantage.
"Pocket Hockey is totally boss!" --Joe Barilla, 1982 Pocket Hockey World Champion
- If an opponent is in the way of a direct shot, try bouncing the puck off the boards and into the net.
- If you're not lined up properly for a shot on net, and you only have one shot left, hit the puck on a glancing angle and knock it in!
- Balance offense and defense. Sometimes, if you know you have no hope of scoring, it's better to move your player into the net, to try and stop your opponent from getting an easy goal.
For us hockey fans who are longing for a true 5-on-5 hockey game, this game is a step in the right direction. Very addictive and challenging game. A nice change from the numerous air hockey variation games in the App Store. Would request that the game designer add 1 additional AI level (between the beginner and intermediate level). Beginner is too east and intermediate is just a lottle bit too tough. Put in an easy-intermediate level and this game is perfect!
Very fun and addicting hockey game. Im a hardcore hockey gamer and this is by far the best hockey experience on the itouch thus far.
Definitely a must buy!!!
I'm a hockey fan and I love this game! You can fight too. Best hockey game ont he app store. I reccommend it!
