At first glance Goooooal America looks like an
overhead soccer game. The thing is the players in Goooooal America do
not move around the field. Instead they are like planets with gravity.
Players will pull back on one of the players and then fling the ball
down the field. The ball can then orbit or have its trajectory altered
by the gravity of players it passes.
The goal of Goooooal America is pretty simple - win the games. This is performed a variety of ways - usually by scoring the most goals. Goooooal America has a number the two teams are working towards. There is one player and one computer controlled character. Goooooal America would be great for multiple family members at the same time, but the Nintendo DSi version does not include that.
There is no defense that players can mount. They have to wait patiently for the opposing team to score or make a mistake. The bomb game play mode is interesting. Players can only hold the ball for so many seconds. Then it becomes a bomb and will explode that player or another hapless player off the game play board.
Goooooal America gets its roots from "An authentic simulation of a real table-top football game, with players on springs, playing with a steel football." It shows intelligence to bring this game into the digital forum. I know it is a first for me, and I would guess for many of our readers as well.
I like the different uniforms for the sixteen different teams from a wide array of countries in Goooooal America. I also enjoyed the music as I worked my way through the tournaments in Goooooal America. Find a shot that works for you, and stick with it. That is my advise when it comes to winning in Goooooal America. The twenty objectives in Goooooal America are the hardest part of the game.
I love how Goooooal America teaches players things like angles and trajectories. Goooooal America also teaches to do your best, and make the most of opportunities that come your way. I hope to see more games like this in the future. I would have loved to have been able to place my players where I wanted them on any given board.
