If you’re familiar with the free-to-play gaming industry, you might know that publishers like to take any chance they get to add a fun event to their games. Christmas calls for Santa Claus, Easter for the Easter bunny, and Valentine’s Day for hearts and candy. If an international event like the soccer world cup comes up, you can be certain that your favorite browser game will have a soccer themed event. The folks over at InnoGames have just proven our point.
The browser-based strategy game Forge of Empires will start its very own soccer cup tomorrow. Between June 12th and July 13th, players can participate in this event and win some nifty prizes. The event lets you take part in a penalty shootout contest whose successful participation rewards you with soccer cups. These can be traded against event buildings and other prizes related to the event. While the FoE Soccer Cup ends on July 13th, cups can be traded up until July 20th.
The penalty shootout is basically a game of luck: Players decide what kind of shot their soccer players shall take. Each shot has a different chance at going into the goal. The less likely your chance is, the more cups you will be rewarded with if the shot is successful. Players can increase their chances by investing some of their precious cups. It is advisable to be a smart gambler as each neighborhood will have a jackpot of all the cups that have not been won. The first player within a neighborhood to strike a goal will win the entire jackpot.
On another note, InnoGames has recently released a Forge of Empires app for the iPad. Anyone who owns Apple’s tablet may go to the iTunes store and download the game for free. It is possible to log into an existing game without having to start over. Players can take their game wherever they go.
