Top 10 soccer/football games for iPhone/iPad
1. Dream League Soccer
Dream League Soccer is one of the most quality soccer simulation games on the App Store, as well as on the Google Play Store for Android devices. Since the first release of this game, it still retains the old control but the gameplay and graphics have been improved so much.
The first thing you need to do is create your own team by editing the logo, kits, and shirt numbers. You can also upload your custom team logo & kits just by copy-paste the URL to the logo or kits image. DLSCenter is a good place to get new Dream League Soccer kits and logos. In this game, coins are used in transactions. To get more coins, you have to win matches, sell players or upgrade the stadium, see ads to earn more bonus coins.
You can then use your coins to sign better players, develop players’ skills, and build more capacity for the stadium. After the season finishes, if you’re in the top 3 best teams, you’ll get promoted to a higher division, but your stadium’s capacity must match the standard capacity condition first.
What I love the most about this game is the ability to play with my friend by connecting to the same Wi-Fi router or via Game Center. It’s much more fun than playing with the machine.
2. PES 2017 – Pro Evolution Soccer
This game has been available in various beta phases since December, but is only now getting a full-scale launch, available free on both Android and iOS with optional in-app purchases.
PES 2017 Mobile starts you off with a tutorial, teaching you the basic controls for dribble, pass, shoot, and pressure. There are other advanced tutorials as well, for lob pass, through ball, slide tackle, and more.
To suit the mobile playstyle, Konami has provided with a new control scheme, which allows users to swipe on the screen in different ways. You can also switch to the classic on-screen buttons if you prefer.
3. FIFA Mobile Football
As the name suggests, EA has completely redesigned and built this game for mobile with a download size of under 100 MB. Authenticity, no doubt, is one of the factors that makes the game outstanding. With over 30 leagues, 650 real teams, and 17000 real players, you’ll be able to enjoy the authentic football experience.
One of the things that stands out in FIFA Mobile is the attack mode where you can play matches against other users all over the world by taking turns. The thirty different leagues and the possibility to play in cooperation mode are just a few more strong points of this version. Thanks to these new features, you can enjoy FIFA like you never have before. [Download]

5. Head Soccer
Head Soccer is a soccer game which isn’t a real soccer game. Actually, it’s a one-on-one, head-to-head game where you need to try and get the ball into the competitor’s goal. That’s the concept of Head Soccer.
Learning to play this game is really easy as you only use arrows buttons to move your player and two other buttons on the bottom right-hand side to kick and jump. But I warn you, it will take a long time before you’re actually good at this game.
There are six different modes: Arcade, Survival, Tournament, Head Cup, Death, and League. Each of these has different objectives to come out as the winner. There is also an online multiplayer mode where you can challenge and match up with your friends via Game Center or Bluetooth. [Download]
6. Slide Soccer
Slide Soccer doesn’t have decent graphics as its simplicity is the best weapon. It’s very fun and easy to play. To score, just like in real soccer matches, you have to try getting the ball into the opposing goal.
The game has various levels of difficulty and different playing surfaces like grass, ice, or dirt to test your skills on slow or slippery fields. You can also play with friends on the same device or play offline against an AI. Slide Soccer also has an Online multiplayer mode that lets you challenge your friends and players around the world.

7. Top Eleven
Top Eleven is the most-played online soccer manager game in which you will have the opportunity to take control of a soccer team, and test and improve your skills while playing against other managers from around the globe.
8. Final Kick
This game is all about penalty free kick. Final Kick lets you create your team of dreams and train them to make increasingly spectacular goals. It has impressive realistic graphics with slow-motion replays to watch the best shots from all possible angles.
Game controls are as simple as swiping the finger to shoot and dragging the goalkeeper to make saves. But it’s really hard to master this game. You can also play against your friends or let the game find you an opponent to see how good you are in short games.
9. Soccer Physics
This is another simple control game as it only has one button to play. Pressing that button will make your two players jump up at the same time. And your object is to use that jump button to score as many goals as you can and stop your opponent from scoring as well.
10. Score! World Goals
Score! World Goals is a game where you have to replicate the most famous goals in football history, like the one scored by Iniesta against the Netherlands in the last world cup, or the goal by Maradona against Nigeria in ’94.
You’ll be shown a map displaying the goal you need to score: recreate the steps they took and choose the right line to score. If your goal is true to the original, you’ll move on to the next level.
