World Cup Carnival

The re-release version by US Gold was initially planned as an in-house title, however time constraints after a failed first attempt forced them to acquire Artic's World Cup, and fit the game with licensing tags and 'feelies' including a badge and wallchart, to release the game in time for the competition.

Although one of US Gold's biggest ever sales successes, their reputation was not helped by the game. Amstrad Action magazine gave it 0%, and other reviews were highly negative. On forums such as Lemon64, the US Gold game has a much lower rating than World Cup, despite being all-but identical.
