Kickster – Score with skills and style

Score with skills and style

– Individual player characters
make the difference in Kickster –

In a first screencast on the
official Kickster weblog publisher Frogster shows the creativity of individual
characters in the new street soccer game for the PC. The appearance of the
player character is not only a question of style in Kickster but strongly
influences their abilities in the match, just like a role-playing game. Thus,
gender, body type and height can be selected first during character creation.
These statistically defined body characteristics decide directly upon speed,
stamina, shooting power, precision, trick skills and defensive skills of the
player. Crucial for the gameplay in particular is the chosen position on the
pitch. Deep-fielder, midfielder and forward can be selected as main classes,
each with different attributes.

Forwards are decisively better at
scoring for example, while midfielders have theirstrengths in tackling among
others. Football fans can personalize their character further by configuring the
facial features of their player, the hair and skin colour, the clothing and
sneakers without influence on the player’s qualities. After the first successful
matches, the character can evolve with cool street wear articles and special
skills in the item and skill shops. From level 17 on, players can specialize
even further. The expert level offers even more strategic gameplay and lots of
new powerful moves.

The character creation’s screen cast
is available as a flash video on
