From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Nintendo World Cup is a soccer video game for the Family Computer/NES and Game Boy, developed by Technōs Japan and released in 1990. It is a localization of Nekketsu High School Dodgeball Club: Soccer, the fourth Kunio-kun game released for the Family Computer. Ports for the PC Engine and Mega Drive were also released in Japan. A Game Boy version was released in Japan, North America and Europe.
   Thirteen national teams compete in a world cup to become number 1. At its core, the game follows the rules of soccer, but with noticeable differences. Each team has only six players (a goalkeeper, two defenders, a midfielder and two forwards). You control only one of them, but you can give commands (Pass/Shoot) to the others. Offsides are non-existent and fouls are not punished. Players can be knocked out by repeatedly sliding, tackling or shooting them, afterwards they will stay down for the rest of the half. Players can also use up to five 'super shots' per half; these powerful, odd-looking shots are used whenever a player does a bicycle kick or a diving header, or when he shoots after walking a certain number of steps. The 'super shots' differ from team to team. The playing fields also differ in respect to material, e.g. ice, which heavily impacts movement of players and the ball.
   There are two game modes:

  • Tournament mode, in which one or two players take control of one of the 13 available teams, in order to defeat their CPU-controlled opponents.
  • VS Match mode, which enables players to confront each other on sand, ice or dirt playing fields. On the NES version, up to four players can compete using the NES Four Score or the NES Satellite. For the Game Boy a link cable or Four Player Adapter would be used.
   Graphically, the NES version game looks similar to the Famicom version and other games in the Kunio-kun series, particularly Downtown Nekketsu Story/River City Ransom, with its short-legged, big-headed characters with varied faces; in fact, some sprites, such as Kunio and the other members of the Japanese team, were reused from that game.
