Cristiano Ronaldo is not one to miss out on a marketing opportunity, whether it’s underwear or steel. So it’s no surprise he’s got a new free-to-play mobile game entitled Cristiano Ronaldo: Soccer Clash.
“This is an entertaining new way to connect with my fans, especially the younger generation of football fans who never got to see me play early in my career,” Ronaldo said in a news release. “I look forward to sharing my skills in an interactive way with users of this app.”
(It’s debatable if Ronaldo even knows much about this game, never mind has even played it.)
Ronaldo’s game is based around playing head-to-head shootouts with other (real) players. You swipe on your screen to send the ball in various directions from various spots on a field; you can add curve and even use superpowers on offense. Then on defense, you choose whether to upgrade your goalkeeper, improve your defenders or other changes to the opponent, such as deflating his ball or making it rain.
It’s simple and semi-intuitive. But is it fun? Download it on Google Play and find out for yourself.
