Sorry, we couldn't find any images attached to this page.

Garg football is a fun and charming game of football, the soccer kind of football, between two two-garg teams. It's amazing how well it works. It's definitely not perfect, but the gargs do try to kick the ball and more often than not, it goes towards the goal. The gargs do have a tendency to kick the ball as soon as they run up to it, usually towards their own goal and in one instance a garg in my server did score a goal for the opposing team, but they also have an equal chance of running past the ball and coming at it from the correct direction. The fact that it worked at all amazes me. They also got stuck a lot, but even if it took a while they would get free.

This is one of the earliest maps included in Sven Co-op, its small and there is not much to do besides watch the garg game but it offers a spectacle. My teammate and I sat around watching for a while rooting for blue team, the underdog. At one point I fell through the invisible wall that kept players suspended over the field. I dropped in like a streaker and ran around the map. Players spawn with barnacles and I was able to grab the ball and run it around the map, either this hole purposely exists or a bug is turned into a feature.

I ran the ball through the goal and scored a point for blue. Blue team then lost that point randomly a little bit later. We speculated that the map could have known players cheated so I scored a point for red team, that point stayed so I don't know if there is a flawed anti cheat system or if the points system is flawed or what is happening there. I am going to give it the benefit of the doubt and say there is an anti-cheat system and that's pretty cool.

I like this map. It's a fun spectacle that is impressively done. It might not hold attention long but it is fun while it lasts.


  • The gargs play football!
  • the players can intercept the ball and play instead
  • the map is very well done


  • the gargs don't play football well and can score for the other team
  • Since the gargs don't play well they can get stuck easily and slow down already an already slow game
Score: 7 / 10
