No sound effects or music.
No action sequences: strategy is totally text-based.
Has an occasional but nasty habit of crashing.

...AND THE UPPERS
Five difficulty levels.
The wide variety of teams, players and management.
If you get hooked, you'll stay hooked.
Nice in-game touches like the radio-style commentary.
You have just been appointed the National Team Manager and you have inherited a squad of players
that have struggled to find their form and have suffered a series of demoralising defeats.
Your first taks is to restore the confidence and pride of the Country and to qualify for the
next World Cup Finals. Nobody gives you a chance of winning the World Cup, but can you confound
the experts and build a squad capable of beating the best teams in the World to win the
ultimate prize in football - The World Cup?
To qualify for the Finals you must finish top in your qualifying group, so before starting your
first match look at your group fixtures and plan your overall strategy. For example, if you
have a group of strong or very strong teams, it may be advisable to play for a draw in some
matches rather than going all out for a win at every match.
Toy must also finish top of your quarter final group to reach the Semi-Finals. If there is a
draw in the Semi-Finals or in the Final then 30 minutes extra time will be played. If the
scores are still level, the match will be decided by a penalty shoot-out.
