You’ll need the 3D paper glasses to get the full surround-sound effect. But because you asked so nicely, here’s a simple instruction page for a set of DIY glasses you can make easily.
In 3D Penalty Save, the player is the goalkeeper and must try to keep as many penalties out of the net as possible. Every single game incorporates five penalty kicks, each of which the goalkeeper has to attempt to save by using the mouse controls. Simply make up your mind which way you believe the ball will go when the penalty kick is taken, move the mouse according and wait to see if you are successful. The more penalties you save, the higher you will score.
