As its title would suggest, Goal! Two follows up Jaleco's first hit soccer outing, Goal!. Representing one of 24 countries, it's up to you to lead your team to the Super Cup.
Before the traditional two-half soccer action ensues, however, you have a multitude of options to choose from. While some are such typical simple choices as auto-goalie on/off, half length (one to 45 minutes), offsides on/off and fouls on/off, other more unique options exist as well. For instance, the controller response can be changed from upward-diagonal (corresponding to your perspective of the field) or directly relating to the direction you press on the control pad. You can also change up your line-up as well as your on-field formation (4-3-3, 4-4-2 or 3-5-2).
Before each kickoff you'll get a coin toss, the winner opting either to keep the ball or choose which goal to defend. After that, the standard rules of soccer apply. Steal the ball as you slide to take it away from your opponent. Use your head to knock it halfway down the field. And watch your players celebrate after scoring a goal. It's all here in Goal!
