Latest Games Reviewed: On the Ball

On the Ball is a soccer management sim created by Ascon and published in 1993 for the Amiga, including AGA models, and PC MS-DOS.

The game, designed and programmed by Gerald Köhler, was initially released with the title Anstoss. The title is not just another clone of Championship Manager / Football Manager; On The Ball offers a different gaming experience. It's very realistic and full of details, but it's not based on pure statistics and numbers. You might say it's based on "emotions" rather than numbers. Psychology, in fact, plays an important role. For example, you will know that one of your players has a certain level of stamina or ability, but the game could also tell you that he has just got married, and this influenced his happiness. The attitude, composure, and self-confidence are also critical. The fact that the game doesn't have any official license means that all the names are invented, so you cannot spot the top players just because their name is Giggs, Zola, Cantona, or Van Basten. You will have to figure it out for yourself.
