This is just one of three new footy games from Cult. And unfortunately it's
definitely the worst, well in the running for 'turkey of the year'.
You play the striker on a football team. Apart from looking at tables of
statistics all your options are limited to asking for a transfer to another
team, doing some training, or playing in a match.
Both training and playing bring up the same ridiculously simple 'arcade'
sequence. Your little stick man player stands in front of the opponents'
pathetically drawn goal, and you have to stop a direction meter in the right place
As the goalie is glued to the spot and can only fall to the left or right, this
isn't exactly a difficult task. However, in a match you may not even get a single
chance to shoot.
This wouldn't be so bad if you could see the rest of the action,
but your view is limited to the empty opponent's goal area - all you get to see
is the clock counting down.
If ever a game was akin to watching paint dry this is it. It's a sort of
football manager game without the management!
