Soccer tutorial

Introduction

The soccer tutorial has been developed by Bill Kerr.

This game was inspired by the World Cup in 2002. I suppose it's the first real game I've built from scratch using Game Maker, so I'm proud of it. But compared to the games found on the Game Maker site it is just an introductory game.

I have plans to build a more sophisticated version, hope I can produce it before the next World Cup in 2006!
