Dino Dini and Steve Screech collaborated in the late 80s to make the 16-bit footy phenomenon that was a ubiquitous multiplayer fixture for the next two to three years, at least until Sensible Soccer came and stole away its title. Soccer lovers Leon, Karl and guest CJ Black remember the original brace of Kick Off titles, as well as Kick Off’s deep and compelling spin-off Player Manager and both Kick Off 3 and – ‘the real Kick Off 3’ – GOAL! (a.k.a. Dino Dini’s Soccer). Supported by our faithful fans, we also bring things up to date with talk of the ongoing Kick Off scene and a brief look at the recent release of Dino Dini’s Kick Off Revival.
