[top]Tips & Strategies

Before each match you have the option to choose auto or manual rod switching. I would recommend choosing automatic rod switching since the game often moves very fast. Although automatic has its own flaws aswell, like kicking the ball backwards without your consent, you will be better off with automatic. To prevent the rod switching from kicking the ball in the wrong way, simply keep your players up with pushed left.

Camera tips
The game offers you three different camera angles. The games default camera is a top down view slightly off to the side which is how you would see the game IRL. However from this angle it can be rather hard to align players and ball.
The second camera option follows the action around the table and offers a zoomed in top-down view.
The third camera angle is a full top-down view. The problem with this camera angle is the fact that the tips which often pops up during the game blocks the top of the table and therefore blocks some of the action.
Which ever camera angle you choose to use they all have their flaws, but I would recommend using the second camera option.

Gameplay tips

I found it a lot easier to use instead of and while playing. Using the stick can also turn out to be good and often results in a fast ball. Mix up different play styles to trick your opponent. Try to trap the ball until you find a hole in your opponentís defense and hit him when he's vulnerable. If youíre in possession of the ball and it moves slowly across the table, your opponent will be forced to switch defender. At this point heís very vulnerable and you can attack.

When the ball is given, make sure to move your rod slightly towards yourself. This will result in, if given to you, a gap in the opponents defense and may lead to a quick goal.

If you're still experiencing trouble with unlocking the trophies, try deleting your savedata and reload the game.If this still doesn't work, try to delete the savedata everytime you unlocked a new trophy.

[top]Trophies

[top]
The Ultimate Foosballer
All trophies awarded.

When all other trophies have popped.....

[top]
Trickster
Score a trick shot.

To unlock this trophy youíll need to score a goal doing a trick shot.There are different ways to obtain this trophy since there are multiple tricks available.
The two easiest tricks to perform would be:
  • Pull/Push trick
  • Snake Shot
The Pull/Push trick is performed by doing a pull followed by a push after which the first player scores. The trick must be executed pretty quickly to count as a trick.

The Snake Shot is definitely the easiest trick in the game. Itís performed by clicking
When one of your foosballers score like this youíll unlock the trophy.

Note: If you choose to do the Snake Shot youíll unlock Snake Charmer as well.

[top]
Astronaut
Win in a low gravity game.

This trophy can only be unlocked in Foos Madness and you will get this trophy on your way to the Utter Madness trophy.
Simply start a game on a low gravity table and win the game to unlock this trophy.

Make sure to set the goal limit to 5 making this trophy quicker.

[top]
Bumpy Ride
Win on a bumpy table.

As with the other trophies involving special tables youíll unlock this in the Foos Madness section of the game.

This time youíll want to choose the Bumpy Table and after winning the game, youíll unlock this trophy. Make sure to set the goal limit to 5 and the difficulty to Rookie making this trophy a lot easier.

Note: You'll get this trophy on your way to Utter Madness

[top]
Living on the Dge
Win a game on a no ledge table.

Again navigate to the Foos Madness section of the game. This time choose the No Ledge table. Simply win the match against the CPU and the trophy will unlock.
Set goal limit to 5 and choose to play against the Rookie difficulty and you should have no problems.

Note:
Youíll get this naturally in the process of getting the Utter Madness trophy.

[top]
Snake Charmer
Perform a Snake Shot.

Please refer to Trickster

[top]
Newbie
Win your first game.

Please refer to Winner

[top]
Loser
Lose 5 games in a row.

For this you'll have to lose 5 games in a row. To speed things up I would suggest setting the goal limit to 5 and the difficulty to Diabolical.
Every time the CPU has possession make sure to press to the left. This way you won't block the shots. You can also try to do own goals and link this trophy to Going the Wrong Way

Note: If you choose to play on Rookie instead of Diabolical difficulty you can unlock Under Achiever as well.

[top]
Keep it in
Keep the ball in during a game on a no ledge table.

This trophy is definitely one of the hardest. It requires you to play a game on a no edge table without YOU shooting the ball off the table. Thereís not really any shortcut to get this trophy except keep playing. If you are the last one to touch the ball and it flies off, youíll have to restart. The best tip I can give is to keep the ball centered on the table. If the ball is out in the sides, you must avoid the ball and make sure the CPU kicks the ball off the table.

This trophy is hard, but you will eventually unlock it. Just keep at it!

Note:
The trophy pops after the match is done.

[top]
Lay Low
Ball doesn't fly off in zero gravity.

This trophy can be unlocked in any game mode and will unlock naturally. Most of you will get this during your very first game unless you actually kick the ball off the table. If you can't pop this trophy try experimenting on some of the Foos Madness tables such as Low Friction and Magnet tables.

[top]
Under Achiever
Lose against rookie with no goals.

This trophy is actually not that easy since Rookie Difficulty is pretty bad. Therefor the CPU will not score as much. I scored almost all the goals my self to get it over with quicker. Hold left to ensure that you do not block the opponent's shot. Furthermore make sure that the goal limit is set to 5.

When you've lost the game 0-5, the trophy will pop.

Note: You can link this trophy to Loser and Going the Wrong Way

[top]
Clean Slate
Completing a game with no fouls.

There are multiple fouls in Foosball:
  • Spinning the rods for more than two consecutive spins will incur a foul.
  • You may only pass the ball along the same rod for 15 consecutive seconds. Exceeding that will count as a foul.
  • Excessive nudging will count as a foul.
This trophy is really easy and will not be a challenge for you. In all the games Iíve played I only once did a foul by mistake.

[top]
Winner
Win 50 games.

This trophy will unlock naturally during the Ultimate Attacker trophy. Using a goal limit of 5 goals per match will give you 250 goals. All the wins can be unlocked on Rookie difficulty and the only hard part of this trophy is the long grind. For tips on winning please refer to the Tips & Strategies section of the guide.

[top]
Fly Me To The Moon
Ball flies off table 3 times in a game.

This trophy is easily unlocked by playing on the Foos Madness tables. The easiest tables however is the No Ledge table and the Gravity tables. After three Off Table balls you'll unlock this very easy trophy.

Note: This trophy unlocks after the match is over.

[top]
Earthquake
Commit more than 2 fouls in one game.

There are multiple fouls in Foosball:
  • Spinning the rods for more than two consecutive spins will incur a foul.
  • You may only pass the ball along the same rod for 15 consecutive seconds. Exceeding that will count as a foul.
  • Excessive nudging will count as a foul.
The easiest foul to make is keeping the ball in 15 seconds. Make sure you keep the ball by trapping it with
After holding the ball for ten consecutive seconds a countdown will start and when reaching zero you got your first foul. Repeat the process one more time to unlock this trophy.

Note:
This trophy unlocks after the match is done.

[top]
Going the Wrong Way
Score 10 own goals.

This trophy is pretty self-explanatory. You donít have to get all the own goals in one consecutive streak. Just let your opponent shoot the ball down on your half and then try to conquer the ball. Play it to your keeper and score. Simple really.

[top]
Champion
Complete Foos Championship.

Please refer to Ultimate Championship

[top]
Globetrotter
Unlock all locations.

There are 13 different locations and they will all unlock during Foos Championship. When you reach the Street Fair this trophy will pop.

[top]
Ace
Win a match without letting the opponent score a single goal.

This trophy is not hard at all. Especially not if you are using a score limit of 5 goals. Also winning 5-0 will obviously be a lot easier on Rookie.
Furthermore this trophy will eventually pop towards your 500 goals and your win streak of 50.

[top]
Diablo
Win 5 games against diabolical difficulty.

Diabolical difficulty is not really hard. After you know the basics of the game this trophy is easy especially since you donít have to win all 5 games in a row. For tips on winning please refer to the Tips & Strategies section of the guide.

[top]
King of Possession
More than 75% of possession.

This is one of the harder trophies. The key however is not to trap the ball as much as you can, but instead try to score some quick goals. This will greatly increase your possession rate.

Another way to do this is to do own goals. This way youíll have the ball almost all the time. I wouldnít be too concerned about this trophy however, since itís almost bound to unlock some time during your road towards Ultimate Attacker

[top]
Location! Location! Location!
Win in every location.

This trophy is very similar to Globetrotter except this trophy requires you to win in all the locations. This trophy will unlock during Ultimate Championship

[top]
Ultimate Championship
Complete Foos Championship without losing once.

From the menu choose Foos Championship. In the menu you can see 15 players on a rod. These players represent the championship and the 15 games within. Pressing will bring up the Stats Menu where you can keep track on your Win Streak and your Win/lose ratio.

The championship will be testing you on different tables and different difficulties. The structure of the championship is as follows:

Matches Difficulty Goal limit
5 Rookie 5 goals
4 Pro 10 goals
1 Diablo 10 goals
1 Pro 15 goals
4 Diablo 15 goals
When you have won all matches without losing, this trophy will pop. For gameplay tips and more, please refer to the Tips & Strategies section of the guide.

Note: If you're loosing a match simply quit during the match. This won't count as a lost game. Simply reload Foos Championship and retry the match.
I still need confirmation on this "cheating" method.

[top]
Semicentennial Scorer
50 Goals Scored!.

Please refer to Ultimate attacker

[top]
Centennial Scorer
100 Goals Scored!.

Please refer to Ultimate attacker

[top]
Streaker!
10 games won in a row!

Please refer to Super Streaker!

[top]
Super Streaker!
50 games won in a row!

You can unlock this trophy in all game modes. The easiest way to unlock this trophy would be to playing Kickabout matches against Rookie difficulty and with a goal limit of 5. However there are no stats in this game mode so you'll have to keep track on your progression yourself.
Alternatively you could go for this trophy in the Foos Championship game mode. Here you can keep track on your stats and quit if you're about to lose. But keep in mind that the Foos Championship will require you to play against Diabolical difficulty and pull you through games with a goal limit of 15.

It's not too hard to unlock this trophy, but it is indeed a long grind.

Note: You have to play all 50 games in one sitting unless you're playing Foos Championship. In Foos Championship it will track and save your stats.

[top]
Player
10 Games Played!

Please refer to Mega Player

[top]
Mega Player
50 Games Played!

You'll get this trophy slightly before the Winner trophy. However playing matches with a goal limit of 5 will take you around 3-4 minues per match. Therefore this trophy will take you around 3-4 hours to complete.

[top]
Full Set!
Foul, Deadball & Offtable called in a single game!.

This trophy is one of the harder since itís somewhat depended on luck.
Choose the Low Gravity table in the Foos Madness menu. This will allow you to shoot the ball off table.

Foul

As with the other trophies regarding fouls, you can do this in multiple ways. The easiest and quickest method is to trap the ball with when youíre in possession of the ball.

Deadball

This is the tricky part. Getting a Deadball is pretty hard to do. Try doing nothing and just let the CPU play by itself. If this isnít working you can try tilting your players a little to the left and let the CPU shoot the ball into one of your playerís feets. Since the player is tilted the ball wonít ricochet as fast which forces the ball to go slower.
If none of the above work you can try to steer the ball into one of the corners in your half. Use one of the defending players to lift the ball into the corner. Hold the ball with the playerís legs. Sometimes this results in Deadballs other times in Fouls. If you keep at it, it will eventually happen.

Off table

This isnít hard at all. Just make sure YOU are the last person to touch the ball before the ďoff tableĒ is called. You must be the one to shoot it out. Since youíre playing on the low gravity table this shouldnít prove too difficult, but you could try using the same technique as with the Deadball.

When you have completed all these fouls successfully, make sure to win/lose the game and receive this somewhat hard trophy.

[top]
Utter Madness
Win in every possible Foos Madness combo.

This trophy requires you to win all the different combos of Foos Madness levels. You can only link two tables together giving a total of 23 matches. The matches you need to play is listed below:

When you won and completed all 23 matches the trophy will pop. You donít have to complete all matches in one sitting and if you lose a match you donít have to start over.

Note:
There is no way to keep track of which combos you have completed. Therefore I would recommend copying the list above and deleting each combo after you won.

[top]
Ultimate Attacker
500 Goals Scored!

This trophy will be your last. 500 goals is going to take som time. This is a pretty long grind, but it isn't hard at all. Playing against Rookie Difficulty will let you complete a match with a 5 goal limit in 3-4 minutes. You'll need to play around 100 matches to reach the 500 goals which will approximately take you 6-8 hours to complete.

It's a grind, but it's worth the gold and platinum trophy in the end

Note: Only goals scored in completed matches will count towards this trophy.
