Freestyle soccer is an amazing combination of acrobatic and athletic moves performed with a soccer ball. Incredible ball control plus creativity and imagination delivers a unique display of soccer tricks and live entertainment. Ronaldo has become known the world over for his ability to combine a whole repertoire of freestyle moves into his match-day play, and in the game players get the chance to pull off outrageous tricks and combos as Ronaldo challenges freestyle players around the world, from England to Japan.

The game combines rhythm action and touchscreen controls to allow players to pull off loads of different tricks, taken from real-life freestyle soccer moves. Trap and freeze the ball with a flick of both thumbs, then tilt to balance the ball before flicking into another cool trick as you try to string enough moves together to become the king of freestyle soccer!
