Description

In this budget football game built on the framework of Puma Street Soccer, 40 of the best national teams are available to play in either Friendlies, Cup Tournaments (16 team knockout), Leagues (for a maximum of 14 teams) and Penalty Shootout. It's also possible to store the best moments and replay them later. All teams are unlicensed (no real kits), and players are known by their shirt numbers, while having different appearance and physical/technical skills.

With the usual array of moves seen in a football game (passing, lobbing, shooting on attack and both simple nudges and brutal two-feet sliding tackles while defending), the player also has the ability to define tactics to get the most from their players. The usual array of options seen in other games (half length, difficulty level, referee toughness, golden goals and auto-replay) can also be found here. Three cameras allow the player to control the action from the side, back or top down view, with the two first allowing to reverse the orientation.

Trivia

Stadiums

The two stadiums are actually modelled on two Serie A Stadiums: "Japan" is the Stadio Luigi Ferraris in Genoa, referred in the model and texture files as Marassi (the neighbourhood or quartiere the stadium is located), and "Korea" is the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
