British and European men (and hopefully some ladies) will be sighing into their cups of tea (or expresso) right now. Kick Off was a legendary 16-bit soccer game that had friends crammed around their Amiga or Atari ST hoofing a tiny ball around between their tiny player figures.
PS blog for more details.
Kick Off followed in the great tradition of football games with Match Day on Spectrum, International Soccer on Commodore 64. Even the first EA Soccer on Sega Megadrive was great fun, until the company ruined the series with slavish attempts at simulation and licensing everything in the game. Hopefully Kick Off will maintain that play over polish legacy in its new guise.
