Retro arcade soccer game?

Post by proevofanatik » Wed Dec 07, 2016 2:05 pm

Im hoping someone can help me here. Im looking for a soccer game i used to play in the amusement arcades. I remember a power bar building up and when it got full you can do special fireball shots. It would even go into a cut scene when you do a special overhead kick and again fireball shots into the goal. Please someone help. Im desperate to play this game again.

Thanks kevin

Sounds like one of the Hat Trick Hero games, especially the '95 version. If it isn't Hat Trick Hero 95 it'll be something very similar so you might be able to google from there.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

Yes, definitely Hat Trick Hero, which is more commonly known as Football Champ or Euro Football Champ. I owed the JAMMA board for some time..

Great game, very much the "Ready to Rumble" of Football Sims where they suspend certain elements of reality in order to make a more entertaining game. The fouls were something else too, more like something out of Double Dragon!

It's not the game you're looking for but, if it's arcade thrills and spills you're after, you could do a lot worse than European Club Soccer on the Mega Drive (also released as World Trophy Soccer in the US and J-League Champion Soccer in Japan):

If we're making suggestions, then Adidas Power Soccer is one of my fall backs, with flying kicks and unstoppable power shots.
