It offers a league between 8 teams (Ritman Utd,Soccerama,Bombay Mix,Darnell City,Ocean Blues,Legs Eleven,Kevs Cosmos,Stevens FC). The new gameplay features a 'Kickometer' which will help you (or not!) strike your kicks and headers. The higher the meter, the faster (and longer) the ball will go. Ok, the original Match Day was good - the sequel is even better I guess. It is now more playable though the gameplay is slow to watch... More on that, the computer (opponent) team is virtually perfect (computer teams gets very tricky indeed on higher levels) and this makes the game frustrating at times. But the game was good enough to capture your interest back to the days.
The CPC version is colorful with nice touch of pitch colors. The CPC has more bright colors than the C64 version and the pitch is depicted with the correct..green color I think. Overall, the graphics are functional rather than superlative, and better defined than the original. The sprites are well drawn and move relatively smooth though the gameplay feels quite slow.
The game offers a good in-game music theme (right before the kick-off whistle only!) and sound FX (crowd etc).
