Foot Chinko

Foot Chinko is an combination soccer and pin ball game where players have to score more points than the opponent. A soccer-pitch-turned-pinball machine has bumpers, opposing team members, and other obstacles to make it difficult for the player to score. Players compete in a series tournaments which increase in difficulty as players proceed. Usually players must win from behind, using strategy to pass the ball and score. Bumpers disappear after the ball hits them three times, a feature that helps players clear a path to the goal. We recommend Foot Chinko for children ages 4 and older.



bigthumb_originalPinball by nature is a reactionary game -- a game where players have to always be on their toes. But Foot Chinko is a little different. While there still are random elements to gameplay, players will find that if they have a plan of action prior to the first kick, they will fare much better. Because players have a limited number of balls which are lost through the disappearing bumpers or after a score, players have to begin with a strategy. Determining which bumpers to eliminate, which players to pass to, and the direction of the ball are all things that must be considered before the game begins.

Time Management

As players proceed through matches, the level of difficulty increases. Additionally, a time limit is introduced. Now players may not be able to execute their game plans to perfection as the window of opportunity slowly begins to close. Now players must execute each pass while remaining cognizant of the ticking clock. There will be less time to eliminate bumpers and make hasty mistakes. Therefore it's important that players work quickly and efficiently.
