๐Ÿ’™⚽ Why I Love Football Video Games "It all started in a Fish & Chip Shop"⚽๐Ÿ’™ #Retrogaming

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
It all started with an arcade game in a Fish & Chip Shop in Enfield.

The shop was called the Sea Shell Fish Bar and the arcade cabinet was TEHKAN WORLD CUP
After witnessing someone complete the game whilst I was standing in the shop queue with my dad one Friday night I was never the same again. 

I was obsessed with football video games from that point onwards and more specifically I was obsessed with the quest to find the best football game out there.

Have you ever wondered how many soccer video games were made during the period of 1979 to 1999 and what exactly those titles were called?



No?



Well I have….

When I think back through all the football (soccer) video games that I have played over the years, and there’s a lot, I’m trying to think back to the game that really changed the landscape of football games and paved the way for the likes of FIFA and PES.

Naturally, people tend to think back to the first FIFA game on the SEGA Mega Drive or maybe they look at Kick-Off or maybe Sensible Soccer. 

Those games were awesome and I loved playing those games as they were fun and intuitive.

For me though the game that truly paved the way for the future of football games had to be International Superstar Soccer Pro Deluxe. This game swept me away when I saw it.

KICK OFF is a legendary series among those retro gamers who love their football video games.

It was the time of Kick Off 2 and Sensible Soccer in the early 90’s that us football gamers were being treated to some of the best sports games that video games had to offer.

As I learn how to play KICK OFF REVIVAL I savour each and every goal I score as it takes blood sweat and tears to earn those precious goals in each match.

In a world dominated by PES & FIFA I thought that I would take a look to see what other football (soccer) video games exist out there and if they are any good.

Football, "The Beautiful Game" 

is a love so very dear to our heart.


So if you were to cross football (soccer) with Pixel Art & video games then we are in seventh heaven


As you can imagine, when we stumbled across 8 Bit Football.Com it was our dreams come true!


The guys at "8 Bit Football" draw football players in low resolution........a simple mission but boy are they good at it....

The pixel art is Sensible Soccer-esque but with even more added character.

All the footballers and scenes are instantly recognisable to any serious football fan and we found it like reading football comic book as we relived some of the memorable moments from seasons gone by in not only the domestic game but also the international game.

Feast your eyes on some of this marvellous pixel art work by the 8 Bit Guys














Not just satisfied with producing these amazingly cool Pixel Art masterpieces the guys at 8 Bit Football are working with the Indie Game Developer "Super Rock Games" from London in order to develop a video game in the mould of Sensible Soccer and Kick Off and they are calling it....


They are currently beavering away on the match engine and honing the game play. 

But due to the small nature of the game dev team and the BIG ambition of this brilliant project, they have instigated a KickStarter funding campaign to make it a reality. 

They will soon launch the campaign on Kickstarter and will need ALL OUR support to achieve it's goal!

Keep track of the Game Dev Blog >>>HERE<<< for more up to date news of when the campaign will be launched and also for up to date development news!

We'll be waiting with baited breath for this beauty to be released!!

Italia 90 - Megadrive

Italia 90 Megadrive
"He's stuck the Jelly in the top corner!!"
MegaBites (@MegaBitesBlog) tweeted at 10:12 PM on Tue, Apr 30, 2013: One final point on Italia '90. Was I the only one to think the player's left leg was bleeding when he scored?



The Games Freezer Team used call this game "Jelly Football" due to the sound of the ball when it was kicked! :)
