The controls consist of four directions (allowing eight directions including diagonals) and a shot button. Each team has seven players, including goalkeeper and there are league and cup options available. The game is highly addictive due to its difficulty level, the complete control over ball direction, power and elevation (using a Diamond Deflection System), and the importance of tactics and player positioning over the field (barging if necessary), which makes it challenging to break strong defences. Was the first game to use a kickometer. The game plays the song When the Saints Go Marching In while the players are walking to their initial positions on the field at the beginning of each half. The ZX Spectrum version of the game went to number 2 in the UK sales charts, behind Out Run, and was voted the 10th best game of all time in a special issue of Your Sinclair magazine in 2004.
