Kick Off 2 - Manual
Kick Off 2 retains the pace and accuracy of the universally acclaimed
Kick Off. A soccer simulation with a full size multi directional
scrolling pitch and the players, markings, goals etc in correct
proportions. Both teams play the game strictly according to tactics.
Players move into position to receive passes and gain possession. The
ball, as in the real game, travels ahead of the player thus making a
tackle is a matter of skill rather than of chance.
Kick Off 2 like real soccer, requires skills in ball control for
passing, dribbling, shooting etc. Accuracy in shooting, the ability
to swerve or bend the ball to score when taking free kicks needs a lot
of practice. The practice option allows you to practice the ball
skills and set pieces without being harassed by the opposition. Take
your time and posites without being hara you to practice the ball
ctice the skills to perfection. If two players are
to team up, it is an ideal opportunity to practice ONE - TWO up and
down the pitch.
Each player on the pitch has a unique combination of attributes and
skills suitable for the skill level at which the game is being played.
An international is superior to a 4th division player in all
A host of playing options are provided. One of the most useful
options is the provision to set the skill levels of both teams
independently. A novice with an INTERNATIONAL squad can give a
professional with a 4TH DIVISION squad a run for his money.
There is a league and cup tournament with sudden death penalty shoot
outs in case of a draw. The teams in a league are on the whole evenly
matched but with different styles of play and the player skills to
match that style. There is an option to load your own team from
Player Manager along with you own tactics to play another Player
Manager team in a single game or enter league and cup tournaments.
The of play and ecial events selection in the main menu allows data disks to be
Kick Off 2 also provides the facility to change strip colours and
designs. On expanded machines, there are additional sound effects.
The action replay facility allows you to see the goals at normal pace
or in slow motion and compile your own golden goals disks.
There are 24 referees and they have their own distinctive
temperaments. You will soon know which referee turns a blind eye and
which one has a pack of red cards to distribute. On the other hand,
like human beings, they will have good days and bad days. You never
know, you may catch Sean Willis on a good day but Gary Penn -

time match duration is played if the result is a draw after full time.
The extra time is in two halves and the teams change ends at the half
time. If the result is still a draw then a sudden death penalty shoot

This option is set to NO in the league matches and YES for the cup
3.6 SKILL LEVEL
Choice of 5 skill levels : International, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th
Divisions. The attributes and skills of the players correspond to the
division. In a single match, identical squads are presented for both
teams, thus ensuring that the result depends on the skill of the

Each player on the pitch has a unique mixture of attributes and
There attributes are
PACE - STAMINA - AGGRESSION - RESILIENCE
The skills are
PASSING - SHOOTING - TACKLING
The unique mixture determines the performance of the player. For
instance, a player of great pace but with poor stamina will not
perform well as the match nears the end and should be substituted if
there is extra time in a cup match. Similarly a player with high
aggression will go for a ball and if he has good tackling skills will
succeed in getting the possession but with low tackling skills is
likely to foul the opposition and may even collect a red card if seen
by the referee.

the team which scored the most goals. If the number of goals remain
equal, each side takes a penalty alternately. After both sides have
taken their turn, if there is a goal difference, the team with the

there is a goal difference.
The referees in the game have their own characteristics and competence
level. Some are more prone than others in disciplinary action. They
can give yellow and red cards.
