Natural Soccer 1.4.11 Available Featuring Various Gameplay Improvements

You keep on posting a lot of very helpful and constructive feedback about my game - thank you so much! - I greatly appreciate it!

I took the most frequently mentioned criticism to heart and improved Natural Soccer in the following ways, which, in my humble opinion, greatly further improve the overall gameplay:


Added Player vs Player Collisions

From now on, players no longer just pass through each other, enabling you to shield the ball with a player's body and perform some impressive dribbling.

It makes the game more realistic and adds quite a bit of depth to the gameplay. Hope you'll like it too!


Added Manual Passing

While automatic short passes are still available unaltered by tapping the pass button, you can now perform manual straight passes by holding down the pass button instead. The longer you hold it, the more powerful the pass will be.

Those manual passes deliberately are not affected by Aftertouch, as applying that would also let the newly controlled pass receiver run around in unintentional ways.


Greatly Improved Keyboard Controls

I carefully improved the keyboard controls so that they're no longer only strictly 8-way and allow for more freedom.

But still, I highly recommend playing Natural Soccer with an analogue controller!


Toned Down AI a Bit

Actually, the most criticism I got about the game's AI is that it's too strong/perfect ;-)
So I toned it down a bit by making it perform less perfect passing and disabled the code which made the AI block its goal in a close to impeccable way.

Hope you like the new features! Please let me know in the forums!

Enjoy Natural Soccer!

“At first glance, Natural Soccer may appear to be a graphically simplistic game. Don't be fooled! Natural Soccer is a highly-rated game that delivers an intense realistic experience that all soccer fans owe it to themselves to play.”
nVIDIA (Tegrazone Editor)

“It's like Sensible Soccer but faster paced and more fun. Either alone, or with a friend, this game is hours of excitement and addiction. With the option of quick play, this game is already better than FIFA!”
Green Man Gaming (Staff Pick)

“What a goal!!! ... In short, believe me and buy Natural Soccer because it worths every single cent of its small price.”
