Tehkan World Cup

Developer: Tahkan
Genre/s: Sports-Football/soccer
Platform: Arcade coin op
Player/s: One/Two Players
Rating/s: Everyone





Tehkan World Cup




Developed in 1985 by Tehkan, now known as Tecmo, it's a one to two player arcade game. Using a trackball to move and only one button to shoot, pass and tackle, it was a very simple and easy game to play.
Looking at this game now, one can go back in time, if you're old enough, to when a pocket full of quarters ment a great time at the arcades. I mean just look at this thing! You can't get more retro than this.






Graphics


Not great but good for it's time. A plus to the makers for paying attention to details like putting in fans in the stands and what look like cheerleaders on the sidelines. They don't move, but hey, you're there to play football!


Sound


This gets boring fast. There's only one song for all the matches. You do get a different tune for the goals...but it gets annoying and makes you feel like not scoring as much anymore...perhaps done intentionally to increase difficulty .


Replay Value

Not too high I must confess. The only reason I played this was for the DOTC challenge. Once I mastered this game , I stopped playing it and I don't think I'll play it again unless someone takes my trophy away.


Challenge

The difficulty builds up as you progress through the game.


The first two matches are not difficult though the second match AI is a bit more attack strenght. The computer team colors look like France (1st match) and England.

The 3rd and 4th matches, the AI is good enough to score on you should you fail to stop them from getting close to your net. If you haven't used your goalkeeper by now, you should let the computer get close enough so you can take control of your keeper and get a feel for it. It will be needed in future matches. Computer colors are Brazil (3rd match) and Italy.

The 5th match is very difficult. Don't be surprised if you get scored on here. You'll practice lots of keeping here. Computer colors are that of...can't think of a team with those colors.

The 6th match is extremly difficult. By the color of your opponent's uniform, my guess is that you're up against Argentina. Treat them as such.


The final match! Congratulations for making it this far. This team looks like it could be Germany and the AI is a real power house. With increased speed and exellent shot accuracy, you'll have your work cut out. Score as much as possible as the score can easily go against you.



FINAL THOUGHTS

Fun game but really boring after a while. Unless you're playing against a friend, the computer can only give you so much.

Re: Tehkan World Cup

You actually posted a finished review from the start. It's a pretty good review, and the colors give it personality.

Not too much to read, but not so little it is worthless, what there is, is written in a way it isn't boring and soul-less.

Re: Tehkan World Cup

This is the perfect sized review.
Fun-Fact: When we had our challenge I couldn't figure out how to shoot with any accuracy so I just ran every goal in to the net.

Re: Tehkan World Cup

Nice one Jozz. I remember this being a big hit in England way back when. It didn't seem to take people long to master it though.

Re: Tehkan World Cup

Yeah, play it until you break it or it breaks you with the frustration of not being able to score.
