How The Game Is Played
The rules of this table hockey game is simple. You use your mouse to try to hit the puck into the goal. You also use the mouse to try to hit the puck back to your opponent’s side.
Another thing worth mentioning is you can choose a 3-minute game, 5-minute game or choose a game based on points. If you choose the points option, then you can play until you or your opponent reach a certain number of points, which can range from 1-25.
The table hockey game has quite a few pros, with the best one being that you can choose from two different table angles. You can choose side angle view or top view.
You can choose to play the game at three different levels of difficulty. The ‘Easy’ option allows you to play the opponent at the easiest level, while the ‘Pro’ is a little more difficult and the ‘Champ’ option is the hardest.
Perhaps one of the best things about this table hockey game is the pace of the action. It is fast paced and regardless of how many points you play for or if you choose a 3 or 5 minute game, the game will be over before you know it because of the its pace.
It’s worth mentioning that there is a replay button and you can replay the action at any given time. I suggest waiting until the game has finished before replaying it. Nonetheless, the replay option gives some added entertainment to the game.

It is difficult to hit the puck and to defend your goal area. When moving the mouse to control the pusher you, there is a little bit of a delay. In other words, the pushers respond slower when you move the mouse.
Another con is that it is very easy to hit the puck into your own goal post. In matter of fact, it takes very little effort to do this, and if you do hit the puck into your own goal post, then the opponent will get a point.
It doesn’t matter what difficulty you choose to play at, you will have a hard time beat them. This is especially true if you choose the ‘Champ’ difficulty. In matter of fact, I find that beating the computer on ‘Champ’ level to be impossible. Sure, you will likely be able to score a few times, just as I was able to do, but the chances are slim you will not win.
