The simple controls enable rich strategy and play. Charge up power, aim your shots, direct passes, corners and throw-ins. You can also choose to shoot, lob, slide tackle or go for a power shot. There's a single-player campaign where you build your team from the ground up and play against the computer. Or you can play in teams against other people.
There is another version of the game called Charrua Soccer that's available on Apple Arcade. This has more modern visuals but plays similarly. It all comes together to create a game that is frantic and fun but also rewards practice and ambitious play. The controls are approachable for new or young players but offer enough depth to sustain interest long-term.

You can play this game in the following styles:
7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Younger players need to cope with the frantic scramble for a goal in the box. Resilience is needed as games can quickly swing one way or the other. Good reactions but also forward thinking is also important to enjoy this. Playing in a team with more skilled players can be a good way for the very young to enjoy this.
