Football in the style of a 2D Mario game has been done before, in the form of the ancient Soccer Kid and the slightly less ancient Go Go Beckham. Both were far better than this sorry effort, although we should mention that the platform-jumping element is just one of Street Football’s many dismal parts.

You play a lad at a footy-mad school where everyone is keen to dish out irritating little challenges that play like hackneyed online Flash games and rarely share the same control system. The most difficult part is figuring out what you’re supposed to be doing, as the game offers few hints and just dumps you back at the start when you fail. It looks cheap, it plays terribly, and we wouldn’t recommend it even if somebody was giving it away for free.
