The beautiful graphics are worthy of a trophy, with colorful, eye-pleasing backgrounds that range from rural England to Italian ruins. Sprites come in varying sizes, from small rats to big bosses, and all have smooth movements. The excellent animation is reminiscent of cartoons on TV.
Cool sounds, such as squeals and groans as the enemy is hit, accentuate Soccer Kid's tricks. The background music has a good beat, and each country has a different tune for variety.
