Real Football is a sports game designed to provide realistic soccer or footie gameplay to single and multiple players. It features six modes (Seasons, Mode/Tournament, 5v5, Friendly, Penalty and Training) and several secondary modes. The player or players can pick junior, amateur, professional, international or legend difficulty levels. There's even a "Hell" level. They can also pick the duration of a match (3 minutes up to 20 minutes).
The different modes present unique challenges. For example, in the Season mode, the player customizes their country, team and other details and pick either the secondary Highlight Mode, which matches their stats, or normal rules in Action Mode. In Penalty, they play a local penalty kick match against a second player in real time. Preset options exist, such as transfers, player names, the full team name, the short team name, the line up and team tactics. They also complete daily missions, such as missing a penalty kick or playing in the rain.
Real Football rewards the player with achievements for performing various actions, such as the Snowbird for playing in the snow and Survivor for winning a Hell match. They also win trophies for cup and league matches.
