Ready for Euro Cup? Get These Chrome Soccer Apps & Extensions

UEFA Euro Cup 2102 is coming!  In this modern era, enjoying soccer matches no longer means staying in front of the TV only.  Let’s get online for latest news and info about this major sports event!

There is a soccer collection within Chrome Web Store. Here are a few of the best soccer web apps I found there:

UEFA EURO 2012 TM by Carlsberg

Chrome Web App: UEFA Euro 2012 by Carlsberg

This app provides live commentary, group tables and player profiles.  Besides, there is a video library featuring road to the UEFA EURO 2012 videos, players to watch, venue guides and press conferences during the competition.



This app is not only designed for Euro 2012 but other sports activities as well.  It has a Euro section which provides real-time information including scores, statistics, video clips and news.  You can even see pop-ups for red cards as the matches progress!  The information could be shared with your friends right within this app.


365Scores Notifier

Chrome Extension - 365Scores Notifier for UEFA Euro 2012

This Chrome extension is a mini information hub for all sports fans who want to keep track of latest news.  If you click on the extension’s icon, a pop-up window will show the scores and news of latest matches.  You can specify your favorite teams for receiving notifications.



Chrome Web App - ESPN FC

This is another web app providing latest Euro 2012 news and statistics.  It is the soccer web app by ESPN, so even after Euro 2012 you could continue to run this web app for other soccer information.


Striker Manager

This online game has over 100,000 users installed in their Chrome browser.  It is a multiplayer football manager game.  Although it is not Euro-specific, I like this game since you can play it with your friends.

[chrome web app] Chain Reaction To Explode The Balls!

It’s Game Friday!    Every Friday I hand pick awesome web games to share with you. Action, puzzle, sports, classic remakes.  SUBSCRIBE to RSS feed or email updates to get more!

The web app game I’m going to introduce is a game created with HTML5 technology.  It is a demonstration of how games without Flash could be made.  Your goal in this game is to cause chain reaction of explosions to destroy a minimum quantity of balls.  This is a game that tests your brain and luck.

Chain Reaction

In each level you can only click on the playing field for one time.  This creates a zone where all balls going into this zone would explode.  An exploded ball would create yet another zone that could cause the explosion of other balls.  These zones disappear after a definite time.  So the challenge is how to find the best location to create the first explosion zone by anticipating the movement of the balls.

Chain Reaction - The Chrome Web App Game


The score you get for each explosion is not equal.  When you cause a chain of explosions, the score for each explosion increases.  However, once the chain is broken the score for each explosion returns to the basic level.  Think of it as the combo-hit scores you get in fighting games like Street Fighters.

[chrome web app] Qbox: Play Word Puzzle Game and Learn Quotes

It’s Game Friday!  Every Friday I hand pick awesome web games to share with you.  SUBSCRIBE to RSS feed or email updates to get more!

By now most regular readers of this blog should know I like playing puzzle games.  That’s why many of my weekly recommended web app games are mind-challenging puzzle solvers.  This week’s featured web game is yet another word puzzle game.

No, this is not that kind of find-the-words game I introduced before.  Playing this game, Qbox, gives me not only pleasure but also knowledge.  I could learn famous quotes of people.

Qbox - Chrome Web Store

QBox – Move Tiles to Find Out Quotes

In this game, quotes are grouped by time, Old Times, Middle Ages and Modern Time.  I do not have knowledge about old things so I chose modern time.

Qbox - Levels

Each letter of the quote is a separate tile which is movable.  You move a tile by swapping it with another one vertically above or below it.  In other words, you cannot move tiles horizontally or diagonally.  If you found all correct alphabets of a word, the color of the whole word would be changed.  Your goal is to reveal the word in the shortest time.

[Chrome Web App] ChuClone: Simple Yet Awesome 3D Action Game

It’s Game Friday! Every Friday I hand pick awesome web games to share with you. Action, puzzle, sports, classic remakes… all types of funny games. SUBSCRIBE to RSS feed or email updates to get more!

Today’s featured web app game is an awesome 3D game, ChuClone.  It’s built with HTML and WebGL, not flash is required and is super fast.  And the game itself?  A fast paced action game.  You gonna run, jump and tumble.

Chu Clone Chrome Web App Game

In each level there is a three dimensional cube which you have to control.  Use the WASD keys to move it along the track.  There are some special sections, such as those sharply boost the moving speed or push the cube up (bounce).  You have to smartly utilize these special sections and carefully control your cube so that it moves as fast as possible until the end of the level.  The aim of the game is to finish each level as fast as possible (you are not competing with anybody else).

While you use the keyboard to control the cube, don’t forget your mouse.  You can change the point of view by moving the mouse.  Find the best angle to have a look over the track so that you don’t miss anything!

Just as Canvas Rider, the web app game I introduced weeks ago, ChuClone also has a level editor for all registered users to express their creativity.  Non-registered users can still play the game but they can’t built tracks.

This is a nice game which demonstrated how web applications could utilize 3D power.  I was surprised to see the fast rendering of the three dimensional objects.  And the game itself is nice to play.  While there are not so many 3D Chrome web games available, this is one that you should definitely try!
