Headed Goal

Roogames' conversion of Lambourne Games Soccer Simulation

'Full Time'

The conversion stays faithful to the original game, but the game design has been built on in certain areas to add to the action which is recreated.

Game Overview:

Headed Goal gives you all the drama and excitement of Club and International soccer.  It is a replay simulation based on the dice and chart game Full Time, but this design has been expanded in many ways to give many user options and key tactical decisions to be made while still maintaining the integrity required of any replay simulation   Pick your team, set your formation brief your players.   Pass to feet or look for your towering striker.  Push players forward in search of the winning goal, or switch to 5-5-0! to defend a one goal lead away from home.  Keep an eye on the action to spot those players not performing on the day - Is your key midfielder tiring late in the game - Do you need fresh legs for extra time or is your best penalty taker sitting on the bench as the dreaded lottery approaches.

Gameplay:

The pre-game screen will allow you to select your starting XI taking into account the opposition and any current injuries or suspensions.  Then select your formation from the tactics screen and decide who will play where.

The Match Screen then displays a basic graphical representation of the pitch and team line-ups.  Running commentary is displayed with the action constantly updated on the pitch display.  Full sound effects add to the excitement and tension.  At various points during the game, Tactical options are available through the tactics screen.  These include time-wasting, looking for target men, playing the offside game, favouring one side of the field (your strength or their weakness), playing a more attacking or defensive game (without requiring a change of formation) and going in hard to win the ball.  Player ratings are be taken into account when determining results of tackles, headers and disputed balls.  You will see every shot on goal both graphically and will full and varied commentary, and every significant challenge in the game.  Yellow and red cards, tiring, varying form, unavailable players, injuries, suspensions, strict and lenient referees await and a strong AI opponent will set the bench-mark for performance.
