Unity Asset Store — Download Button

During an encounter with the Football Goal, a player may kick the ball by:

  • clicking/tapping any point on the screen (by default);
  • flicking/swiping the object from the bottom of the screen up toward the target.

Both modes form different speed and throw direction based on the last position of finger or mouse cursor, what makes the game even more interesting. Kick the Ball and Try to Get the Best Score without touching the Ground!

Game Modes: AR and Non-AR

You can choose Game Mode on the Demo Scene before the start:

  1. Non-AR Mode (all tested platforms support it) with 3 Camera Control Modes:
    • 2 for Desktop: WASD Keys or Right Mouse Button.
    • 1 for Mobiles: Sensor Camera (docs).
  2. AR Mode (if it’s available, user can see a button to activate it) with the next features using the AR Foundation (ARCore, ARKit) — Augmented Reality engine:
    • Real Plane Detection (includes tutorial, visual plane confirmation/resetting, placing the game around the player).
    • AR Safe Zone. The player needs to stay in the Safe Zone to avoid accidents during the game and continue the game itself! The player will be notified when leaving the Safe Zone.
    • AR Onboarding UX with Transparent Video Manuals & AR States.
    • AR Shadows & Light Estimation: estimates light data in the real world and applies it to game space.

Bonuses & Difficulties

The Objective of a Football Penalty Game is to Get the Best Score by Hitting Targets without touching the Ground (Football Pitch/ Soccer Field) for as long as possible.

During Shooting, you can Get a Bonus or Difficulty with 1 Scored Ball or with a Combo (several balls scored in a row). Balls Count in Combo can be set in the Unity Editor in the $ game object.

Bonus: Target Growing (Big Ring)

Ring Growing happens when the player scores 1 Clear Ball (without touching of Ring).
This bonus blocks difficulties.

When the Limit of Goals with Big Ring will be reached, then the ring will be returned to the Normal Size and the difficulties will be unlocked.

Difficulties: Movements

2 Movements happen at the same time when the player scores 1 Normal Balls (not clear), the target shows VFX with Explosion, Game Objects Dissolve (Meshes & Shadows):

  1. Goal Movement. It contains 2 independent parts that can be customized in the GoalParent game object:
    • Rotation Around Camera (Player) by a Random Angle in a given range.
    • Changing of local Z position by Random Step in a given range.
  2. Target (Ring) Movement inside the Goal: changing of local X & Y positions to random values inside RingMovementBounds game object. The bounds are described by 3 vertices of an imaginary rectangle: X & Y values of separate game objects. The bounds are already set to their maximum values to avoid gameplay disrupting. You can narrow the bounds as you wish.

User Input

Desktop

In addition to controlling the gameplay via Mouse, you can use the Keyboard on the next scenes:

  • Menu:
    • Space (Go to Play),
    • R (Reset Data),
    • Escape (Quit the Game).
  • Demo:
    • Space (Start Game),
    • Escape (Go to Menu),
    • W, A, S, D (Rotate Camera).

Mobiles

In Non-AR Mode, Football Game Template uses a Motion Sensor (Gyroscope or Accelerometer) via Sensor Camera asset to control the Player’s Camera. So you need to rotate your phone to set the camera rotation in addition to setting the throw direction by the touch position of your finger (Throw Control).

In AR Mode, AR Foundation controls the Player’s Camera, but you will get the same experience.

The combination of such user input systems allows you to make the most accurate throw at different angles and speeds.
