Back in the day, before the era of mobiles and tablets, kids played games like Table Soccer for fun. I remember in boarding school, how we used to collect crown corks (aka counters), empty sugar boxes and old cassette reels, so we could create makeshift Table Soccer arenas in the school Dining Hall. Oh those were the days…. And now we can all relive them, thanks to ChopUp.

ChopUp is a online mobile gaming community by Pledge51, the same guys that brought you Danfo Reloaded. They are Bayo Puddicombe and Zubair Abubakar. Their latest game is aptly called TableSoccer and I must say, it totally rocks. The look and feel is nostalgic – players resemble counters and the ball is an actual cassette reel. You can select from a variety of counter teams with different strength and weaknesses. Some counters require you to unlock them first, for a token fee on the Play Store.

The mechanics of the game are also pretty realistic – you press, hold and release to shoot. And it combines just the right amount of simplicity and brevity (3 minutes per game, 15 seconds per turn) to make it potentially addictive. You can play against the computer or against a friend, by Bluetooth. Your phones must already have been paired before you attempt to sync.

My only gripe is with the music, so I play with the volume off. So far I pretty much suck at the game. I’ve been beaten endlessly by both human and computer. I’m not about to let it continue like that forever. I think I have a good idea what I’ll be doing this weekend
