Football Game

Hi all, Lucas Kell here. This is the walkthrough for Football Game, a short point and click adventure game following Tommy, a local school football hero. The game is very short - but quite enjoyable - and should only take 30-40 minutes to complete with this walkthrough.

I'll try to keep spoilers to a minimum, but if you want to do a spoiler-free playthrough, now is the time to do that. Alternatively, I've dedicated a page to a missables only walkthrough if you want to play through on your own but not have to do two playthroughs.

The controls for this game are as follows:
cn_LS - Move the cursor
cn_start - Pause menu
cn_A - Use
cn_B - Examine

Moving your cursor to the top of the screen will bring up your inventory. Bringing up the menu does not actually pause the game as I found out when the boiling kettle continued to scream away when I "paused", but there's nowhere that really matters.

A handy tip for avoiding any accidental clicks on random objects while navigating is to move your cursor to the bottom of the screen when moving left and right (such as when traversing your house) as there's nothing to click here except for the occasional exit on the far left or right of the screen.

This is the missables only walkthrough. The idea is that this gives the minimum amount of spoilers required for you to complete the game with all achievements but without a step by step guide. Skip ahead to the Story walkthrough if you want a full step by step. These achievements are all covered there too.

After you wake up, click on a photograph above your bed.
