Summary

Alpaca Ball Allstars is a football game that is just a breath of fresh air and a good time! I may have seen everything and done everything in a few hours but those few hours were so much fun. It’s a game where it’s luck more than skill, but when you shoot and score every goal is euphoric even if it’s an own goal. It’s fast-paced and full of wackiness and I loved every minute. Power-ups are randomly given to you and mix it up a bit more with things like small players, faster movements, or homing shot, it all culminates into a mess of goals and knockouts. I want to see the game added to and maybe online because the local mp is good fun but online would open it up to more people and get the esports league we need. If all the bad stuff in the world has you down, grab Alpaca Ball Allstars and bring that smile back, even for a few hours of fun, it will be worth it.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
