    1.2. About the game [1.2]
    *************************
    This game was never released. A prototype ROM exists. Essentially it is the 
    same as Tecmo World Cup '93. Maybe once the game was ready it must have been 
    near to 1993 so they never released it. Or maybe it was delayed because there 
    were already a couple of other football games for the Master System - Super 
    Kick Off and Champions of Europe - released in 1992.
    
    As taken from the blurb for Tecmo World Cup '93:
    
    Twenty-four teams from around the globe have come to participate in this soccer 
    showcase. Pick one and match your skills against the computer in an exhibition 
    match, take on a friend, or put it all on the line in the World Cup Tournament! 
    The action never stops!

    1.3. About the guide [1.3]
    **************************
    To navigate the guide you can use Ctrl+F to search for the section you require 
    (using the square brackets around the section number) or search by keyword.
    
    This guide was produced to help with the Sega Master System FAQ completion 
    project (http://selmiak.bplaced.net/sms/) which is trying to get a complete FAQ 
    for every single SMS game on GAMEFAQS. 
    
    *******************************************************************************
    2. Controls [2]
    *******************************************************************************
    To navigate the menus use the direction pad and select with 1 or exit with 2.
    
    During a game when you have the ball use the D-pad to dribble with the player, 
    1 to kick long and 2 to pass the ball to the nearest man. When you don't have 
    the ball then D-pad still moves the selected player whilst 1 is a slide tackle 
    and 2 is to switch the player you control. At any time you can press start to 
    pause the game.
    
    When the ball is out of play for a throw-in or a corner then you use the D-pad 
    to direct where you want to put the ball, 1 to kick/throw the ball (1 and down 
    to go short, 1 and up to go long for corners) or 2 to go to substitution 
    screen.
    
    When your goalkeeper saves the ball then you take control of him for the goal-
    kick. Use the left button to aim the kick left, or right to aim right then when 
    ready press 1 to kick it. If YOU press 1 and up then it'll go further, if you 
    press 1 and down then you'll throw it.
    
    Should you draw a match then, unless you are in group stage of the world cup 
    mode, you will face a penalty shoot-out. Here the controls are left to hit it 
    left, right to hit it right, up to hit it high, down to hit it low. As the 
    keeper it is left, right, up or down depending on the direction you want to 
    dive.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    3. Main Menu [3]
    *******************************************************************************
    
    When you start the game then you see the main menu. You have two options. These 
    are:
    
    1. Start
    2. Configuration
    
    1. Start:
    Choosing start will give you four new options:
    World Cup
    Versus
    Exhibition
    Watch
    
    Choosing Versus allows you to play a one-off 2-player match, choosing 
    Exhibition allows you to play a one-off 1-player match, and choosing Watch 
    allows you to watch a computer-controlled match (although you will still need 
    to press to select the teams and start each half). 
    
    2. Configuration:
    Here you can configure your options: 
    
    * You can choose to play on hard or normal difficulty. 
    * You can choose to have the flicker on or off (which doesn't really make a 
    difference).
    * You can choose what sound mode you want during the matches (BGM, SE, SILENT) 
    where BGM = Background Music and SE = Sound Effects. I recommend SE unless you 
    like your 8-bit game music.
    * You can choose the time per half (45, 30, 15 - not real-time, the 15 minute 
    option is the equivalent of around 90 seconds per half)
    * You can choose to set names. Here you can set the names of the players in 
    your team, all 15 of them and 6 characters a piece. You will then be able to 
    play with these player names when you play the game.
    * You can listen to all the music (all twelve tunes: 00-0B) and sound effects 
    (all thirty two of them: 00-1F) in the game using the sound test option.
    * You can exit using the exit option which takes you back to the main menu.

    5. Playing a match [5]
    *******************************************************************************
    
    The first thing you need to do is choose the colour of your shirt. The 
    opponent's shirt is then chosen at random of one of the remaining colours. The 
    coloured shirts available are: 
    Red
    Blue
    Yellow
    Green
    Purple (because lots of international teams play in purple)
    Sky blue
    Black
    White
    
    After that you get to the team select menu. Here press sideways to choose your 
    formation. The options are:
    4-4-2
    3Back (3-2-2-3)
    4-2-4
    4-3-3
     
    You can press 2 to get into the team select menu. The guys listed as FB (full-
    backs) will be the defenders, the MFs are the midfielders and the FWs are 
    forwards. There is also a GK - a goalkeeper. It doesn't really matter who 
    players where although it is obviously better to have the players with the best 
    stats in the starting eleven. The four not classified as GK, FB, MF or FW are 
    subs. You can make two subs per game. In the World Cup mode you can also 
    upgrade your players here if you have earned experience points (expoints 
    shown).
    
    This is also the screen you'll get during a match if you want to make a 
    substitution during the match.
    
    Now click 1 and exit to start the game.
    
    The timer is at the bottom counting down until the half-time/full-time whistle.
    
    There are no free-kicks in the game.
    
    The aim is to score more goals than the other team.
    
    Tips:  
    My favourite way to play this game is with a 4-4-2 formation and to pass the 
    ball up the pitch when an opponent is near you and to dribble with it if they 
    are not. 
    
    To pass effectively you have to realise that the pass goes to where the 
    receiving player is at that moment the pass is made so don't run the player 
    away before the ball goes there. 
    
    For shooting I tend to do this around or in the area across the keeper.
    
    For penalty shootout aim high and in the middle and more often than not it will 
    go in.
    
    For corners hit them high then shoot.
    
    For goal-kicks hit these straight and long because you can set up goals this 
    way if you are lucky.
    
    When not in possession keep pressing 1 to slide tackle as there are no free-
    kicks in the game so you can't commit a foul.
    
    Funny things I noticed:
    You can take a throw to yourself.
    You can do back-passes.
    West Germany are in the game when it should have been Germany (the game was 
    made in 1993 after the re-unification of East and West Germany).

    6. Walkthrough of World Cup mode [6]
    *******************************************************************************
    Choose World Cup and you will be placed into an elimination group of 4 teams. 
    You play each of the other three once. After each match a grid showing you the 
    results. Reading crossways a "O" means a win, a "X" means a loss and a "-" 
    means a draw. A draw gives the team one point and a win gives the team two 
    points.
    
    The top two/three from the group go through to the next round (at which point 
    the 24 teams will be reduced to the last 16). At this point it will be knockout 
    and matches ending in a draw will be decided by a penalty shootout (5 pens each 
    then if still a draw sudden death).
    
    After each game you get a 27-letter password. This allows you to return to the 
    game later. You get a password at every stage up to the quarter-final. 
    
    Here are my passwords from playing with Russia:
    After 1 point in first match:
    UAAABCMAMA
    ACABFNRBJL
    RJOOVPM
    After winning my second group match:
    UCBACCNAMB
    ICCBFNRCKM
    SKPOVPS
    After drawing my third group match and progressing to the knockout stages:
    UCBAANUTJD
    LGCOFBWSHX
    IKAAAAO
    After winning and getting through to the last 8:
    UIBABPUTJD
    LGCOFBWSHX
    IKGKJKK
    After winning and getting into the semi-finals:
    UADACPUTJD
    LGCOFBWSHX
    IKOONLW
    (Then there are no passwords given out for getting past the semi-final and 
    reaching the final - you have to play these two matches together.)
    
    If you win a match (except on pens) then you get experience points that can be 
    used to spend on improving your players' attributes (the power, speed and 
    technical stats that are above in the teams section). These are based on your 
    goal difference (this is goals scored minus goals conceded). You get experience 
    points equal to your goal difference if you are playing on hard or double your 
    goal difference if you are playing on normal. I recommend upgrading the speed 
    attributes first, and concentrating on your strikers.
    
    The aim is to go all the way and win the cup.
