Mario is a soccer player in this game. Seems like he has gone back to the normal people’s world and he’s taking on his favorite sport of all time. As a striker, Mario would have to hit the ball with his head. It shouldn’t touch the ground or the game is over.
But since Mario stayed in the Mushroom kingdom for too long, a lot of his friends visited him during the game and are actually helping him ace. When you see toad, the princess, or Yoshi as you try to keep the ball alive, go to them and score added points. Every character will also give you powers and pluses to get better at soccer. Move Mario by using the arrow keys. The left and right arrow keys are used to control him sideways.
ARROW KEYS LEFT and RIGHT: Move Mario
