[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Sauce Digital's latest iPad game, Touch Soccer 3D HD has reached the Apple App Store. Touch Soccer 3D HD, as the name suggests, is an iPad version of the highly original iPhone game Touch Soccer 3D and is the most satisfying way to score on your iPad.
The game is a first person gesture controlled 5-a-side football game, with a completely original and unique experience. Players use swipes and flicks to kick in any direction. However (unlike any other soccer game on the iPad) those gestures also allow players to run, pass, and tackle. This means Touch Soccer 3D HD is gesture based and is non-static, i.e. you can actually run around the pitch, dodging AI opposition, and picking your moment to shoot.
Touch Soccer 3D HD gets as fast and frenetic as the real thing. You haven't experienced a iPad soccer game until you have swiped the the ball across field to a team mate, tapped the screen to trap the ball and beat a defender, then with the flick of a finger slammed the ball in off the underside of the crossbar.
