DescriptionLike its predecessor, Jumpers for Goalposts 2 is all about taking an aspiring footballer from the grass root level to world class in ten years. The player starts out in his own backyard and gets to train up his skills in six aspects (three more than the first game). These are:
- Snap shots
- Turn & Shoot
The game is not all about what's going on at the training pitch and the stadium. Each day the player can also choose to socialize in different ways. This includes for example going to the pub or the cinema. Socializing will however impact the performance in training so it's important to keep a balance between social life and football life. The player gets rated in two ways: manager rating and media rating, both 1 to 100. Manager rating increases when doing well in training and scoring goals while it will be lowered by being late to training after a night of partying. The media rating is important for attracting bigger clubs and getting higher wages. To increase it the player can get a girlfriend to socialize with, although breaking up with said girlfriend will decrease it. Socializing is key for a higher media rating.
The game has 14 new girls that the player can attract by socializing, each with its own ratings. The player needs to keep an eye on what his girlfriend wants to do or he might get dumped. The player can also buy a car and a house which might help with attracting the girls. There is ten of each although the player can only own one at a time.
New in this version of the game is card playing. In the bus home after each match the player now gets to compete against his team mates in a higher or lower card game. The player sees a card and has to guess if the next one has a higher or lower value. If he succeeds with seven cards in a row he wins.
In addition to solo play the Mousebreaker.com website also offers the option to compete against friends. This functionality requires a Facebook account and lets the player compare his score with others.
