Soccer Kid is a fabulously fun platform game with lots of action. The funny opening cartoon sets up Soccer Kid's adventure as he must reassemble the lost World Cup. Things move quickly as you knock skaters off their skateboards and cyclists off their bicycles with your soccer ball. Try moving the D-pad at the start-up screen to change the color of Soccer Kid's clothes; he'll wear that color combination for the rest of the game. It's cool!
With a unique weapon/item system, 28 levels (though they aren't particularly long), a great soundtrack, and plenty of hidden items to find and collect, Soccer Kid is an impressive action/platformer that manages to be just different enough to warrant investigation. If you like the genre and are looking for something a little more European, give this a go.
GamePro (US) (Jan, 1995)
With he cartoon segments and the idea of a "kid" hero, this cart is geared toward younger games, but older players might have fun as well. If you're looking for a decent challenge with cool animation and fun gameplay, Soccer Kid scores.
This game was ported to a ton of systems: Kid Kleetz (SNES) Marko (Game Gear) Marko's Magical Soccer Ball (Genesis) as well as a few less popular consoles using the name Soccer Kid. The 3DO is probably the best version as far as features as it was capable of FMV and the others aren't. The gameplay doesn't make use of the 3DO's capabilities but it doesn't detract from this port at all. With as dry as the library on the console is, this is a needed edition to your collection.

Trotz netter Grafik und annehmbarem Sound bietet Soccer Kid nicht viel, was hungrige Jump‘n‘Run-Fans begeistern würde. Vom 3DO erwartet man mehr.

Un bon petit jeu de plate forme, qui ne révolutionnera pas le genre mais qui vous fera passer un bon moment pour les périodes ou vous voulez vous lancer dans un jeu pas prise de tête.
Soccer Kid has to be the first side-scrolling game where you use the ball as a weapon. Loaded with technique (using the ball), this game has excellent graphics, but the sound effects could be punched up a little.
