Like many of you, I’ve been collecting retro gaming stuff for years now. I haven’t written much about my collection on this blog, so I thought I’d better get started today.
The first item I want to show you is my original copy of Kick Off 2 for the Amiga. This legendary football game is still played today by people all around the world. There are even tournaments being held! Isn’t that amazing? Who would have thought that this old sports game would be so popular today? I wouldn’t. It truly shows how important gameplay is when it comes to the lastability of a game.
Here’s a link to the official Kick Off 2 World Cup 2012 in Milano, Italy: http://www.ko-gathering.com/wc2012/
Anyway, I hereby present you with Kick Off 2 (Acid/Guildhall Leisure edition):

As you can see from the photos, this is not the first edition of the game. The first version came in 1990, while this one was released a few years later on. It is interesting to note that the box says it comes with a free Relokick disk for Amiga 1200 users. This is because the game isn’t really compatible with either the Amiga 1200 or 4000.
I don’t play these football games much anymore, but it has a dear place in my collection due to the memories I have of playing it in the past. Anyone else having fond memories of Kick Off by the way? I remember vividly playing it with my friends back then, especially on rainy days when no one went out to play football.
