Game Review

Kick Off is a football (soccer) game designed by Dino Dini and developed by Anco Software in 1989 for the Amiga, Commodore 64, and several other platforms. This football game was the first to use a top-down view of the field. It was also the first to show the ball as rolling in front of the player as it should be. The game had around eight sequels and remakes, making it a full-fledged franchise.

Kick Off was one of the first football games where knowing how to control the ball was a must. There is a practice mode that allows you to learn the technique before applying it to an actual game. You can practice passing and sliding tackles until you are a master. When taking on actual teams, you must change your strategy and players to claim victory. The game also features penalty cards, injuries, different referees, and other elements that add to the realism and difficulty.

Kick Off enjoyed commercial success and won several awards, including Game of the Year. Its success was surpassed only by the sequel, Kick Off 2. Football fans will get a kick out of this retro gem.
