Soccer Xtreme

Producer : W.M.Umesh Prabushitha Jayasinghe

Media :Games Platform

Producer’s Description

Soccer Xtreme is a computer game specially designed for children. The basic objective of the game is to unlock the ‘Rahas ankaya’ or ‘secret code’ which is needed to gain access to the ‘Xtreme Challenge’. To do so the player must first collect the necessary points by answering a set of question papers. Each paper in turn carries an entry requirement – a minimum number of goals that need to be scored/ or saved to unlock each paper. For instance you need to score 5 points to unlock the history paper. The player takes the role of the goal keeper or the kicker. The game makes learning fun.
