Look, I am not very good at football, although I always wanted to be. Nor, do I imagine, would I be that effective were aliens to attack. But I've had a hell of a lot of fun getting to do both playing Heads Up with Cristiano Ronaldo. It's a total kick, even if you're using your noodle instead of your feet.
You play as Portuguese football legend Cristiano Ronaldo of recent Man U and now Real Madrid fame, defending the world from an alien invasion by surrounding them with football and dropping them out of the sky. Link up three or more balls of the same colour, and they fall down. Balls advance downward as you play, and past a certain point, everything comes crashing down on your head. You can earn gold coins to advance to higher stages, or spend that sweet in-game cash to buy your way in.
It's both casual and fast paced. It's the kind of game where I found myself holding my breath and playing and playing and playing. Actually, this post is a day late because I played too long. It will link up with your Facebook and Twitter friends, as well as friends from your address book so you can compare scores. I noticed Justin Bieber (whom, yes, I follow on Twitter, thank you) has the highest score among all my friends — and I think the second highest score overall — at 722,812. He's actually in first place on a couple of the locked levels. Top that.
