The 2010 World Cup has successfully infiltrated all kinds of media, including gaming. We’ve seen a number of soccer releases, instant streaming of the games through game consoles, and an influx of soccer themed items. One of the strangest tie-ins has to be Soccer Cup Solitaire, a PC and Mac game by Anawiki.
In Soccer Cup Solitaire players select an international soccer team to compete in the Soccer Cup, a tournament structured like the World Cup. Teams are matched up against competitors, and each match consists of a card game. Pairings are called passes, which can be chained together to gain score combos. Players can collect Wild Cards and Bonus Cards, play mini-games, and experience different tournaments throughout the game. Every aspect is soccer themed, from the backgrounds, cards, and user interface.
