Indoor Soccer - C16
This game really doesn't look or play well nowadays, but I mispent hours of my life on this game brought to us by The Magnificent Seven. In terms of gameplay it was very limited, and the flickering was very off-putting. However graphically it was pretty ambitious for the time - animated crowds (even most 16-bit footie games didn't have those!) and a side-scrolling pitch.
The lack of any league or cup options, named players, recognisable teams etc may seem a shocking omision these days, but I don't remember feeling that it was a big issue at the time. It was a football game pure and simple, and it has smiley faces in the crowds - a young lad in the early eighties was easily impressed, it seems!
