Welcome to another FAQ of mine. This one covers the GameBoy game Soccer Mania.
Much as one would expect, this is a video game based on the internationally
popular game of football, or, as us Americans call it, soccer.

...

Yeah, I don't know what to say about this. But try to enjoy.

--------
Controls
--------

~~ D-Pad        : Move around.
~~ A Button     : Kick (in possession); sliding steal (without the ball).
~~ B Button     : Swap player; kick (if current player has the ball).
~~ Start Button : Pause/unpause game, and also see scores, half, and time.
~~ Select Button: N/A.
~~ L/R Buttons  : These only have functions on the GBA SP and GameBoy Player
                  ways of playing the game. They will widen/narrow the
                  screen respectively. Otherwise, N/A.


----------------
Playing the Game
----------------

Setup:
``````

You'll begin by choosing which mode to play - one-player or two-player. They
both do rely on the same principles, though. You'll then choose the teams you
will play with.


Starting Off/Offense:
`````````````````````

When the game begins, you'll probably have the ball. You will press the
A Button to kick it. Kicking it will push the ball in your facing. In doing so,
you probably want to pass it to another player on your team (usually dark-shirt
players except in two-player), or at the goal. Otherwise, your opponents are
more likely to take the ball from you.

When moving around or kicking the ball, you only have control of one person at
a time. This person is the one with the multitude of dots and dashes above
their head. If you want to control a different person, press the B Button.

During the course of a given game, your goal is to score as many points as is
possible. This is done by scoring goals. Initially, you will be facing the goal
you want to aim for, so pay attention to this aspect. To score a goal, you
merely kick at the goal and hope for the best.


Defense:
````````

After you score a goal, or the other team takes the ball from you, you are on
defense, as you will not have the ball. Your main goal, during this time, is to
take the ball from the opponent so they cannot score a goal. This is primarily
done by using a "sliding steal" (press the A Button as you run at the ball
possessor). Successful steals put you back on offense.

Once your opponent reaches the goal, don't waste effort by trying to stop them.
You cannot control the goalie, it seems, so it's up to the AI and luck. If they
succeed in getting a goal, or the goalie catches the ball, it's yours again.


Fouling:
````````

As far as I've seen, there's only one way to foul in this game - kicking the
ball out of bounds. In that case, the opponents of whoever kicked out the ball
will be able to throw it in.


Game Data:
``````````

The game is divided into two halves, each lasting forty-five minutes.

The highest-scoring team during those two halves, overall, is the winner.
