Soccer Bashi is Breakout with Soccer
Posted by James Newton
Or perhaps it's soccer with Breakout?
Whichever way you slice it, Icon Games' next project Soccer Bashi combines the skill and satisfaction of breaking bricks with the showmanship and balls of soccer and is closing in on the WiiWare goal as we speak.
With 90 levels spread over different game modes there should be plenty of variety, but Icon is also throwing in a level editor to allow players to create and store up to 100 of their own levels. Apparently it's the same tool as the designers used when crafting the built-in levels, which is hopefully an indication of its power.
Here's Icon's own description followed by some freshly mown screenshots.
Soccer of the future; destroy the defender blocks and smash the ball into the goal to win, but watch out for the enemy defenders out to destroy you!
