DescriptionRather than copying Sensible Soccer or Kick Off, this football game features a number of comical and unrealistic touches. Although the view is top-down, the pitch is small and square, and the players appear huge on it. A range of moves including overhead kicks, trapping the ball and quick 1-2 passes can be mastered.
Before each match your team can choose special moves to assign to each player - power shots with ludicrous curve, super dribbling (making the ball stick to your foot), and a Barge power to push players out of the way. A full world cup tournament is offered, which up to 8 human players can partake in, as well as single exhibition matches. The action replays feature a VCR-style control.

SNES versionEmpire Soccer 94 was originally developed for the SNES, with Graftgold signing the deal to develop the game on the expectation of royalties from this. Steve Turner does not know precisely why the SNES version went unreleased, but commented that "we failed to get the expected royalties and felt let down by Empire". When asked about his experiences with Empire in a 2013 interview, he snidely commented "We had a good relationship till we had finished. Then it was time for them to do their bit".
