Description from the packaging.

An all-action football-style game in your own home!

You are controlling the player at the bottom of the screen. You can move down, left and right, or even up as far as the twenty-five yard line.

Your aim is to kick the oval-shaped ball, knock out the players in the middle of the screen, and then to score by avoiding the intelligent and rapidly moving goalkeeper.

Some of the players will disappear when you hit them, but others will deflect the ball back at surprising angles. However, all will score you points. Can you reach the ball and 'kick it back' before it leaves the field of play?

This is an exciting game with five skill levels. You'll be hooked and glued to the screen until you can once again beat the high score.
