Three years before the brilliant SENSIBLE SOCCER came along, KICK OFF was the non plus ultra football game for our precious Amigas.

The gameplay was blazing fast and the bird view perspective gave you a great overlook and control of the match.

Controls were exceptionally good and you could choose from a range of options when doing a corner-kick. To shoot or pass, you'll only have to tap the fire button and the longer you press it the higher the ball will be kicked. To dribble the ball the way you want it (and especially in the direction you want it) may require some practice first but once you get used to that you'll have tons of fun with this game.

The options range from playing a single game to a whole league season and up to eight players can compete against each other (but only two simultaneously of course). Plus you can also choose a playing tactic before starting a match.

KICK OFF – a footie classic!
