Soccer[nb 2] is an sports game originally released on the Famicom in Japan on April 9, 1985, and on the Nintendo Entertainment System in North America on October 18, 1985, and Europe in January 1987. It is a video game adaption of the real-life association football sport.
Upon starting a game, the player must select one of seven teams, the opponent's skill level from one to five, and a half time of 15, 30, or 45 minutes. Like in real soccer, the objective of Soccer is to kick the ball into the opposing team's goal. The player nearest to the ball at the start of a game is given control, and can either pass the ball to a teammate or kick it toward the opponent's goal. When passing the ball to a teammate, an arrow will appear above the player closest to player in control, indicating they are the receiver; once the ball is passed, the player takes control of the receiver. If the opponent's team gets the ball into the player's area, the player takes control of the goalkeeper, allowing them to guard the goal and dive at the ball.
Each of the game's seven teams represents a country's real-life soccer team as of 1985, including:
- USA - United States
- GBR - Great Britain
- FRA - France
- FRG - West Germany
- BRA - Brazil
- JPN - Japan
- ESP - Spain
