Ronaldinho goes mobile

He's the FIFA World Player of the Year, the European Player of the Year, winner of countless domestic titles including the latest Champions League and is about to embark on Brazil's defence of the World Cup. In short Ronaldinho can do no wrong in the world of football, but will his golden touch transfer to mobile?

That's certainly the hope of Meantime Mobile Creations, who has partnered with Goal Mobile to create a range of branded games and content.

The first title to be released, Ronaldinho Total Control, will be a one-button casual game based around the buck-toothed one's ball juggling abilities – you must maintain a rhythm of button presses to keep the ball bouncing off different parts of the star's body.

Combination moves and special items (like a mobile merchandising contract?) boost your score and could earn you a place in the Meantime Arena hall of fame if you like that sort of thing.

Scheduled for global release during the World Cup, we've already added its name to the list of our squad of soccer wannabes and should be putting it through its paces soon.

What's that? You don't really rate Ronaldinho? No bother, the partnership between Meantime and Goal mobile promises to create a veritable production line of mobile games based on other soccer and sports personalities.
