I always thought that Dino Dini's "Goal!" was the best in the Kick Off franchise. However, stick to the Amiga (or ST) version, the console ports were poor.

Also, don't pick Steve Screech as the ref... red cards EVERY game! :wink:
Or the plastic pitch. What a nightmare THAT was!

Ah, but the plastic pitch could result in some cracking goals where the ball would smack the underside of the cross bar and ricochet up and down several times on the bouncy pitch... you don't get that kind of spectacular action in Sensi! :wink:
GAME OVER YEEEAAAHHH!

Don't worry. Everyone sobers up eventually.

Or maybe I prefer horizontal shooters to vertical?

I thought the Amiga feature came across like it wasn't wrote by someone who had never actually owned one at the time. No Apidya, Moonstone, KO2 or Turrican?! Also, Speedball II was NOT that good. Get over it.

The fact that RG have covered Turrican in the past with such little attention paid to the Amiga versions and great video game musician, Chris Hulsbeck, who I feel wrote absolute masterpieces for all three Turrican games (and the ones on the SNES) is curious in itself. What's the deal with that?!

Totally agree with that! Huelsbeck is the greatest homecomputer musician of all time for me! The excellent Apidya music is also written by him :D

... did everyone know the new Huelsbeck Album is coming out in August? :D

Am I missing something? Why is Apidya such a great game?
For me , it's just a fairly hard , generic horizontal shooter - but with insects

Very pretty insects admittedly, but largely ho and indeed, hum.
