A wide television audience was expected in addition to the large crowd that had already assembled at the stadium. As the teams took the field an uneasy feeling fell over the crowd. Suddenly, bursts of fire pelted the stadium and the field was engulfed in smoke. The crowd gazed in amazement as the smoke cleared to reveal that the players had been replaced by highly familiar robots running out onto the field It seemed the robots were going to play the game instead. The television audience was especially surprised at the events. The most surprised person was the one and only Dr. Light, who immediately recognized the robots and knew Dr. Wily had to be up to his old tricks. This is unexpected, Dr.Light thought. That's probably what Dr. Wily is thinking: no one will notice when my robots take control of the world through its most popular sport. Think again Dr. Wily, here comes MEGA MAN! Dr. Light brought to life a reserve of blue crime-fighting robots with the trusty Mega Man leading them. The next great robot showdown will be on the soccer field. No matter where Dr. Wily's diabolical plots occur Mega Man will be there to battle through the robots and get Dr. Wily. -[7]- MEGA MAN SOCCER Mega Man Soccer is a futuristic sports-action game where you can play soccer with a team comprised of robots masters from the Mega Man action game series.

You will always play against a computer-controlled team even when you play a two-player game. After you choose a one or two player game, you may choose from any of the nine robot teams. The players on each team cannot be changed, but the position they play can be adjusted. The LEAGUE schedule will then appear and show you the match-ups for the LEAGUE. You will only play the games that the team you selected is involved in. Your team's record will be displayed from left to right. Use the graph to line up your opponent. A red circle means you won that game, an X means a loss and a blue triangle means you tied the game. "GP" refers to Game Points and "GD" means Goal Differential. You receive 2 points for a victory and 1 point for a tie. The Goal Differntial is determined by subtracting the number of total goals you have allowed the opponent to score from the total number of goals you have scored. After each match, the schedule will appear and show you the results of each match. When you have finished viewing the results, press START and you can play your next league match. -[14]- CONTROLLING YOUR PLAYER Here is an outline of how to control your robot player with the default control setting: Control PAd Moves player in direction pressed WITH POSSESSION OF BALL Y Button Passes to teammate. Press control pad and Y button simultaneously to change direction of pass. B Button Shoots ball. Also can be used for a long, low pass. Press control pad and B button simultaneously to change direction of shot. -[15]- CONTROLLING YOUR PLAYER, cont. A Button Clearing kick or centering pass. When in defensive zone, the A button clears the ball straight downfield. When in attacking zone, the A button sends a long, quick cross toward the goal. When near the outside of the penalty area, the A button will send a lobbing cross toward the other side of the goal. Hold R button, then Special Move (see page 17) press B button Without Possession of Ball Y button Slide tackles or heads ball. B button Depending on when you press the button and the location of the ball determines which move is performed. A button Shoulder tackle. Knocks opponent off the ball and allows your player to steal. Passing At the top of the field of play below the scoreboard there is a player position guide that shows where the players are since only part of the playing field can be seen at any one time. Player 1 will be blue dots and Player 2 (or computer) will be red dots. -[16]- CONTROLLING YOUR PLAYER, cont. Use this guide to determine when to pass to a player. As you are dribbling up field, watch the white dot on the guide. This is the player with the ball. When you see one of your dots move into an open or unmarked position, try to pass to that player. If you pass before he appears open, most likely a defensive player will intercept the ball. Slide Tackling, Defensive Headers Tackling and defensive headers are an important part of gameplay yet are difficult moves to perform. Try to start a slide tackle about a half-inch away from the opponent with the ball. Sliding diagonally at the opponent with the ball can help you be more successful in making a steal. Shoulder tackles only work when you are standing right next to an opponent. As for heading the ball, it really takes keen anticipation. You must time the jump correctly in order to make contact. When the ball is in the air, run underneath and if done correctly your player will either head the ball in the direction you are pressing the control pad or the player will trap the ball and bring it down to its feet so you can pass, clear or shoot. -[17]- ROBOT CHARACTERS Special Attacks Each robot has special attacks that will change the look of the ball and send it hurling toward the opponent's net. Should any player come in contact with the special attack ball while in flight, that player will be disabled for a moment. The ball will drop near that player, but that player cannot play the ball right away. Another player may come in and steal the ball. In many cases, the special attack will go straight at the opposing goal. Most goalkeepers cannot stop this shot so a goal will be scored. Once again timing is crucial when performing these special attacks. You must press the B button and the R button precisely at the same time to perform the special attacks, which are different for each type of robot. Robot Characters When playing in the EXHIBITION Mode you can select which robots you would like on your team. Here is a list of the robot you can choose from in the order as they appear on screen from left to right in MEGA MAN SOCCER. Mega Man Ice Man Elec Man Skull Man Needle Man Wood Man Flash Man Top Man Bomb Man Bubble Man Fire Man Proto Man Toad Man Pharaoh Man Dust Man Cut Man Enker Air Man Gemini Man Snake Man
