Flick Kick Football challenges players to score from free kick positions by bending the ball around fearsome defender walls, while immersing the player in the nostalgic 70’s age of football greatness. In Bullseye, players must use their aiming skills to hit as many targets as they can within the time limit. Hitting targets rewards the player with both time and point bonuses. The more precise they are– the higher the score. This latest update to Flick Kick Football is now available.

“Flick Kick Football has had multiple free updates since launch as we continue to add to the game and give the community more for their money,” said Jos Ruffell, manager of the PikPok label.“Our goals are to keep adding features and growing the player base of the Flick Kick line while showing players that PikPok games are synonymous with fun, high-quality gameplay and new features.”
