Peter Beardsley's International Football - Atari ST


I remember playing this way back in1988 when it was first released by Grandslam Entertainment.  Hitching onto the popularity of the Liverpool and England footballer, it was a game with some nice graphical touches but terribly stodgy gameplay.  (As a devoted fan of both Liverpool FC and footie games on the computer I kept trying to win the world cup on it despite everything though!) It wasn't until the following year that Kick Off came along and blew everyone's socks off with its frantic speed and abandoning of the "magnetic feet" approach.


Swift passing moves were impossible in this game, but for a while the attractive visuals kept it interesting.  At least until Kick Off was released...
