Introduction:
Welcome to Pleasure Goal, a soccer game where teams of five compete to win the championship cup. As far as NEOGEO games go, the achievements are par for the course. This is also one of the easiest ones I've ever played, meaning you don't need to be deterred by a lack of experience in soccer or sports games. Let's get started.

Step 1: Original Mode
In Original Mode, you'll need to win 8 games in a row. This may seem like a lot, but you can pause the game and go into Game Settings and lower the game time to the lowest setting. This makes each game around two minutes long. Choose Argentina as your team, since they're the best team. Pause the game and create a save state at the start of each match, just to be safe. Be aware that a tie counts as a loss, so you will need to outscore the other team. You essentially have a couple minutes to score a goal, then just kill time until the match ends while you're in the lead. After winning 8 games in a row, let yourself lose (end in a tie, if need be) and upload your score to finish this mode.

Step 2: Hi Score Mode
In Hi Score mode, you won't be able to change the game time. Still choose Argentina as your team, since they're the best team. You'll need to win three games in a row. This is barely more difficult than Original Mode. Refer to the guide for tips on doing this easily. After winning three games, let yourself get beat and then upload your score to finish this mode.

Step 3: Caravan Mode
This mode is actually entirely different from the other two. Here, you have five minutes to score five goals in a single game. It may sound like a lot, but it's actually pretty simple to do. Pick Argentina like always, and refer to the guide for some tips on making this happen. Once you reach five goals, you're done with this mode.

Conclusion:
Pleasure Goal is one of the few NEOGEO games that actually doesn't feel cheap with tons of difficulty, and is easy enough for even a casual player with no experience to pick up and complete. Finishing all the required games make take a little time, but it should be a pretty easy completion relative to other NEOGEO games.

There are 12 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • In ORIGINAL MODE your score will be posted to the online rankings.

    After completing a playthrough of Original Mode, you'll be given a prompt asking if you'd like to upload your score to the online leaderboard. Choose 'Yes' and this achievement will unlock.

  • High score has been updated.

    After completing a playthrough of Original Mode, when you get the 8 wins as described below, you'll be prompted to enter your initials for the local leaderboard. Do so, and this achievement will unlock.

  • ORIGINAL MODE You won 3 time(s).

    Refer to the "ORIGINAL MODE 8 win(s)" achievement solution for more information.

  • ORIGINAL MODE You won 5 time(s).

    Refer to the "ORIGINAL MODE 8 win(s)" achievement solution for more information.

  • ORIGINAL MODE You won 8 time(s).

    To make Original Mode as fast and easy as possible, when you start the mode, pause the game and go into Game Settings. Set the game length to the lowest setting to make games as short as possible, and lower the difficulty all the way. When you're done and start the game, choose Argentina as your team since they're the best. Also choose Auto for your goalie.

    Each match will play identically. Right at the start of each match, pause the game and Create Interrupt Save Data to create a save state here. If you screw up or don't win the match, you can quit to the title screen and then resume at your save state. As far as playing and winning each match, you'll have around two minutes to score a goal so that you win. Be aggressive to get the ball, and then once you have it just rush right to the opposing goal and mash . Sometimes this will pass the ball to an open teammate, but otherwise it will shoot, and it will almost always be a goal. Keep on the offensive and it shouldn't take long to score the one goal you need to win. Once you score, get the ball back and just run circles around a defender to kill time until the match ends. Repeat this process for each match until you have 8 wins. On your ninth game, purposely lose (or let it end in a tie, which counts as a loss) so you can upload your score.

  • The score has been posted to the online rankings in the "HI SCORE MODE".

    After completing a playthrough of Hi Score Mode, you'll be given a prompt asking if you'd like to upload your score to the online leaderboard. Choose 'Yes' to do so and unlock this achievement.

  • HI SCORE MODE You won 1 time(s).

    Refer to the "HI SCORE MODE 3 win(s)" achievement solution for more information.

  • HI SCORE MODE You won 2 time(s).

    Refer to the "HI SCORE MODE 3 win(s)" achievement solution for more information.

  • HI SCORE MODE You won 3 time(s).

    In Hi Score Mode, you won't be able to shorten the matches and won't be able to lower the difficulty. Even so, the strategy in this mode is exactly the same as Original Mode: choose Argentina as your team, choose Auto for the goalie, and be very aggressive on offense. Rush the opponent's goal, and mash to shoot. Ideally, your player will do a bicycle kick which is essentially a guaranteed goal.

    Once you score and you're up 1-0, get the ball back and preferably pass it to the redhead on your team, since he's the fastest. Now just run circles around a defender to kill time until the match ends. This is a little riskier than in Original Mode, but you'll find you can do a repeating circular pattern and the AI can't really catch up to you.

    Don't be deterred if the computer scores. Just stay aggressive until you're in the lead, and then hold onto the ball until the match ends. Repeat until you have three wins in a row, then let yourself lose on the fourth match so you can upload your score.

  • CARAVAN MODE The score won 1 points.

    Refer to the "CARAVAN MODE 5 points" achievement solution for more information.

  • CARAVAN MODE The score won 3 points.

    Refer to the "CARAVAN MODE 5 points" achievement solution for more information.

  • CARAVAN MODE The score won 5 points.

    Caravan Mode is different from the other two modes in that you have five minutes to score five goals in a single match. You can't change the difficult, but like the other modes choose Argentina as your team and choose Auto for your goalie.

    The strategy is identical to other modes when on offense: stay aggressive, run right to the goal line, and then mash . The redhead on your team (assuming you're playing as Argentina) is your best player, so getting the ball to him is a good idea. Whoever gets the ball though, just run to the opponent's goal and mash until you score. Repeat this, being as aggressive as possible, until you score your fifth goal, finishing Caravan Mode.
