Load screen
After the load screen comes this. When FIRE s pressed the game takes the player through action key definition
The first game screen defines the difficulty level
In the next game screen the player chooses their team. First the geographic group is selected.
Then the team within that group
The player then has the opportunity to put names against each player or to use the default. There are two screens of team members, 21 players in all
The game gives the option to watch the results at group or match level
After a few screens showing the results of the other groups, it's Australia's turn to play. Before the match can start the player gets to set up the team. This means positioning each player etc
Not all players are selected
Selecting Postion makes the left/right etc keys active and moves the player around on the pitch. Status makes the player a sub or a reserve
Action cycles through Sweeper, Find Space, Positional, Wing Play, and Thru Runs
Then there's the inevitable pre-match banter
The team talk - whatever I chose morale seemed to go down
The match begins with a kick-off. There are no corners in this game.
It plays automatically. The dots move around the pitch and its actually interesting to watch the ebb and flow of the game
An isometric view of the play is also possible.
At half time the player gets to reposition the team, change tactics and give another morale boosting talk. Then the game plays through until full time. Go Australia!
The results for the group are then displayed ...
... and the next game is announced
The results after the second match
