After Touch Soccer - A Kick Off fan remake

There are a few games from the days of Amiga and ST that really stood out. What we'd now call Killer Apps. For many Shadow of the beast is what sold Amigas. Something to put on in a shop window or show your mates when they came round. A beautiful yet flawed game. but for social gaming, the one EVERYONE had be it legit or copied, was Kick off (and later, KO2.) Even if you had no love for real world footie, Kick Off had universal appeal. It was 16-bit's killer app. So it's no surprise that someone would make a fan remake of it today. Here is AfterTouch Soccer.

The result is a very authentic looking and feeling remake with many of the hallmarks of the original including the original sprites and animations sanctioned by the original artist Steve Screech. Everything from the menus to the in game sounds and even fonts seem familiar even if they aren't all 100% spot on.

All in all it's as close as you'll get to the original on your PC, Mac or phone without firing up an emulator. And best of all it's totally free!
