Description

Shijō Saikyō League Serie A: Ace Striker (or simply Ace Striker) is a football (soccer) game that features all clubs and the majority of footballers from the 1994–95 Serie A season.

During that time, the Italian Serie A was unanimously considered the most competitive league in the world, and the Japanese fans followed it passionately. In 1994, the signing of a Japanese star player by one of the league clubs came calling even more attention and enthusiasm, hence the release of few (Japan-exclusive) soccer games based solely in the Italian football league.

Playable modes presented in the game include "Pre Match", "PK mode" and "League". In the latter one the player has to compete in the 1994–95 Serie A season which consists of 34 matches.

The game scrolls horizontally at a slight angle and the players' sprites are cartoony (close to super deformed style). There's only one formation available (the default one), however the player has the option to position ten of the eleven players anywhere in the field. It is also possible adjusting the tactic to normal, defensive or offensive.

During the matches there is a small scanner that shows the players' positions. A cutscene (animated image) will appear whenever a goal is scored. The goal celebration will always occur and very few players have their unique way of celebrating. There is a referee which will only show up when a foul is committed and sometimes he will show the yellow and/or red card. Only two substitutions are allowed, and many other "elements" are missing such as fatigue, injuries or the offside law.
