An inferior 64 footy game.
KICK OFF is a football game played in an actual stadium, scaled to the size of your screen.
The teams play according to strategy (4-3-3, 5-3-2, 4-2-4...) that you determine at the
beginning of the game.
The players must move in front of the ball to intercept and control it. The ball moves as in
an actual match, varying with the style of the player who controls it; to score will depend
more on your ability than by chance. Controlling the ball is thus very important.
To do this, you must intensely practice attacks, dribbles, goal kicks, rakings, and the
multiple ways of performing a corner kick. You can, very quickly, achieve a level close
Each player has four qualities: precision, agression, physical condition and speed. Speed
and precision are therefore more advanced with a professional football player than a
player on the "sunday" level.
While passing the different levels, you will learn to adapt yourself to the style of the teams
and the quality of the players. The possiblity of changing the game level of each team
makes the game more involving: if you like a challenge, give yourself a "youth" team to
play an international team.
You can play in League Competition comprised of eight teams. They all have the same
capacities, but a different game style. The Competition lasts fourteen weeks,
and you will have the possibility of saving it.
You can play alone or with a friend against the computer. At any rate, a referee will
punish your behaviour and don't protest uselessly if one of your players gets himself expelled
from the field: you can count on the referee to take the side of the computer. In case
of foul-play, you know the consequences! Yellow card: warning, red card: expulsion.
To know who is doing what, the scanner will give you an aerial view of the game, as well
as the positions and movements of all the players.
