Having originally been a very basic blocking game utilising Habbo's predictable pathfinding of the old days (and not even featuring a ball at all - it more closely resembled Steal the Ice Cream), the true version of Football was introduced in 2010 along with a selection of furniture. The furniture range included main objects such as an interactive football, pitch pieces and a football gate which would change a Habbo's outfit so they were in the correct uniform for their team. Achievements can also be earned from playing Football.
How To Play
Habbo Football is a lot like real football or as known in America, Soccer. Of course, there is a field, 2 goals and a football... although it can be played with multiple goals if preferred. The objective in football is to score goals and make sure the other team or other Habbo doesn't score. In order to kick the ball in Habbo football, you just need to walk into the ball - if you step on the exact tile it's on it will "punt" the ball along, or if you walk through it you will "dribble" it a certain distance. Opponents will then attempt to intercept and take possession of the ball for themselves, or if unable to will just attempt to get it clear of your run towards goal. The Habbo or team with the most points at the end of the timer wins.
Habbo World Cup (2010)
In 2010, after the Football furniture line had been released, Habbo came up with an idea to hold a Habbo World Cup. The Habbo World Cup had a variety of competitions, including video and room-building competitions. One popular competition was the "Football Guru Prediction Poll", in which players predicted the outcome of the various games in the World Cup. Habbo World Cup, of course also had huge football games open to any Habbo users that would like to participate. During the Habbo World Cup multiple Habbo staff also hosted and/or participated, giving users a chance to not only meet but compete with them personally.
On June 28th 2012, two Achievements were introduced for the Football line. The achievements were added during the Euro 2012 competition and both are awarded based on the scoring of goals. Both achievements have only five levels.
Football Goal Scorer
This achievement is awarded to users for shooting soccer balls into football goals X number of times. Only soccer balls and banzai pucks can be used to score goals. This achievement is best achieved through the use of boosters, as the highest level requires the user to score a total of 10,000 goals.
Football Goal Host
This achievement is awarded to users for hosting X number of goals in their own rooms. Other users must shoot either a soccer ball or banzai puck into a user's football goal to advance in this achievement.
The Football minigame brought along its own furniture range. It was first introduced during Summer 2010 in 3 separate releases in order to commemorate the 2010 FIFA World Cup and was extended in 2012, due to the UEFA European Football Championship taking place. This range featured the very first "interactive" ball that could be pushed about by other users by simply running into it. The range can be found in the Catalogue or Builders Club through the By environment tabs.
The black recolour of the Stadium Bench, the Audience Bench, was added later.
