Description

Goal! takes the basic gameplay of Dino Dini's previous Kick Off games, but updates most features in some way.

Teams from various European countries are included, and you can customise these by moving players around, and changing the starting lineups and formations. An Arcade Challenge mode sees you play matches against each of the five computer team speeds, in succession, until you lose one. You can also arrange leagues or play individual matches.

A wide range of options are included, with variable wind settings, a range of pitches and referees, variable match lengths, and the chance to play up/down or left/right, a choice of close or distant view, and variable computer speed and skill. All of these features can be combined in various ways with each other.

Trivia

Development

The game was originally to be Kick Off 3, until Dino Dini left Anco for Virgin. To play up the connection with the Kick Off games, Virgin produced an advertisement for which the blurb was structured so as to highlight particular letters, which when taken in order spelled out 'Kick Off Three'.
