Match Day IISTORY / GAMEPLAY
Match Day II is a soccer game so the main purpose is (what else?) to win! It includes a league between 8 fictional soccer 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 is surely good but the sequel is even better. It's more playable though its slow pace. More on that, the computer (opponent) team is virtually perfect (computer teams get very tough to win in higher levels) and this makes Match Day II frustrating at times. But the game is good enough to capture your interest, even today.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The Sinclair ZX version is colorful though it has the "classic" color-clash problem. But it does not affect the gameplay. Overall, the graphics are more functional than superlative and better defined than the original. The sprites are well drawn and move relatively smooth though the gameplay is very slow (as in all versions). The ZX version features an intro tune and some basic in-game sound effects.
