Goal! Goal! Goal!, released in 1995, is an arcade style soccer/football game. Players can choose from twenty-eight teams from various nations, each rated in kicking, defense, and speed. Players can also choose one of six formations for their team before a game. The formations range from defensive configurations with only two forwards, to aggressive formations with four forwards.
The game sports 2D graphics, and players view the field from a tilted overhead perspective. Only a small section of field is visible at any time, with the section being determined by the ball's location. To aid in orientation, the game displays a small model of the field at the bottom of the screen with a yellow box indicating the current viewing area.
The game follows the basic rules of soccer/football. Each team has eleven players, with one being the goalie. The object of the game is to kick the ball into the other team's goal while keeping them from doing the same to your goal. While on offense players can short kick the ball, pass, or shoot. The strength of a shot is determined by how long the shoot button is held before being released. When on defense players can either tackle or slide. Players do not get to manually switch between team members while on defense; instead the computer automatically places players in control of the team member closest to the ball.
When two players play together they each pick a team and compete against each other in one game. The single player game is a tournament mode in which the player's team must play and defeat the game's other teams. ~ Kyle Knight, All Game Guide
