There’s also the ability to play against the computer opponents if you can’t or don’t want to play with friends. You can play with three different themes too if you want to change up the look for the table.

You can upgrade and improve your team by acquiring different player cards and the better cards you get the better your team will be when you mix those players into your roster.

Once you start your career you can play across multiple seasons and get a console-like experience of the sport right on your phone or tablet. Distinctive Games (the developer) calls it a hockey sim, and that seems about right considering how good it looks.

Brutal Hockey

Brutal Hockey feels like a highly underrated game in the hockey genre, but it shouldn’t be because it looks and feels good and offers quite a lot to the player in terms of features and quality.

This is a top-down hockey game, giving it a slightly different feel from the view alone. Don’t let that fool you though because you can still see all of the crazy action that has the chance to unfold as you play.

Brutal Hockey is a fitting name since you can bash your opponents into the walls and break the glass.

You have 30 tournaments to win if you’re going to become the champion team, but there are also global rankings if you want to see how you stack up against other players from around the world.

Brutal Hockey also promises to have a fast and adaptive AI, which most players will likely find to offer a nice challenge when playing solo. There’s also an endless mode, which helps to work as a way to train and practice your skills.

Definitely check this one out if you want a simple but fun hockey game that still feels like a hockey thanks to the fights.

Hockey Stars

Rounding out our list is a game called Hockey Stars which looks and feels more or less like an air hockey game. So if you’re familiar with air hockey you’re likely going to get the hang of things in this game pretty quick.

There’s quite a lot going on here with Hockey Stars as it has over 80 teams to unlock with the developer stating that there will be more added in at some point in the future.

You can also play solo, against others online, and against your friends. You can play in different cities and if you play against others online you have a chance to climb up the leaderboards, play in tournaments, and earn rewards if you end up winning.
