Mini Review: Behold The Kickmen – A Gloriously Silly Take On The Beautiful Game

“What a big lovely match!”.

Behold The Kickmen is a football (or soccer, if you prefer) simulation for everyone who hates the sport, or, at the very least, remains totally clueless to its global appeal. Created by Dan Marshall of The Swindle fame – who readily admits he knows nothing about football and thought it would be fun to see what kind of game he could come up with – this rather silly rival to the likes of FIFA and PES casts aside the basic rules that have governed football for decades and replaces them with its own.

For example, the pitch is round, not rectangular, and the ball bounces happily off its sides, Speedball 2-style. Goals scored (or “done”, to use the game’s parlance) from distance are worth more points, and the offside rule has been changed so that, if you happen to be on the wrong side of the pitch when the timer runs out, you’re sent off “for a crime against football”. Scoring has the added benefit of earning you a big, sloppy kiss from the referee (or ‘Umpire’ as he’s known here), while going into extra time literally involves picking up clock icons which appear on the pitch to extend the length of the match. It’s utterly bonkers, and refreshingly original to boot.
