Pleasure Goal / Futsal - Game of the Week
Murikov
Welcome to the Game of the Week!

Ever heard of the term Futsal? Futsal is basically nothing else than an indoor style of soccer where the individual teams are reduced from 11 to only 5 players (one of whom is the goalkeeper). Over the years Futsal actually grew quite on popularity and is being played world wide (even Japan isn't spared from it).

Rather than releasing another regular soccer game, Saurus (again the masterminds behind Shock Troopers or Ironclad) decided in 1996 to approach the Futsal style of soccer for their newest Neo Geo installment.

Pleasure Goal is actually considered as a more fast-paced and simpler soccer game on the Neo Geo. If the Super Sidekick series were too long-winded from your point of view, Pleasure Goal may be a convient alternative for you.

Pleasure Goal / Futsal

i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x434/Murikov/NGFL%20GOTW/Pleasure%20Goal/pgoalinsert_zpsb6d7ceac.png

Genre: Sports / Soccer
Players: 2
Size: 146 MEGS
Released on: MVS, NGCD, AES (only as conversions)

Brief Description:

Released in 1996, Pleasure Goal: 5 on 5 Mini Soccer (Japanese title: Futsal) is Saurus' first and only football (ahem, Soccer) game for the Neo Geo. It features 16 teams which compete for the "Saurus Cup". Your team plays against all the others in your group, then it goes into an elimination tournament's semifinals and then the final to win the cup. It's worth mentioning that Pleasure Goal's rules barely base on Futsal, which is basically a 5-on-5 player indoor soccer style.

High Score Challenge:

Never liked soccer? No problem, Pleasure Goal is reduced to only 5 players in each team and to the simplest soccer rules. Why not giving it a try in another High Score Challenge? If you're up for it, leave an according post or send Priest a PM.

At least its a simpler/kids/etc version of how the Super Sidekick games is, but yeah, I find the Title of the game funny as well, lol, Pleasure Goal, it does sound X-rated, lol. Grin

Also, its seems if you have it set to JP language (on the MVS, or for other ways), as Futsal, there is some kinda dialogue, as well as to change/customize your team players, if you select different teams, some characters portraits have some KOF feel to them, even selecting USA as a team on the VS screen has some kinda "Geese" looking guy there (and "Kyo" looking guy for JP team), lol. Grin

(Note: All this dialogue, team stuff is only when set/played in JP, they are not present in the US/EU settings/versions/etc.)

I have this one for NGCD. It was quite expensive and not so easy to track down. Like all Neo Geo football games it's fun to play and it was a nice idea to make it a five-a-side game which is unusual for an arcade football game. I normally just stick to the Super Sidekicks games though (usually SS3/NGC'98) whenever I feel the urge for some Neo Geo football action since they are more enjoyable IMO. Yes the title Pleasure Goal does sound a bit funny and makes it sound adult related. Grin
