This is a rare PC version of two excellent football (soccer to you Americans ;)) games for the Spectrum: Michel Futbol Master and Super Skills, both of which are sadly very little known outside Spain although they were marketed in several languages in Europe. Super Skills is a rare football training program that teaches you five basic concepts from controlling the ball to passing and penalty kicks. Michel Futbol Master simulates the 1988 European Cup with its eight contestants: Italy, Denmark, Germany, Spain, USSR, Holland, England, and Ireland.

What makes both games stand out is the excellent graphics and even digitized sound effects (a rarity for a 1988 game). True to Dinamic's illustrious pedigree of visually excellent games, both games sport outstanding graphics that push the four colors of a CGA palette to the limit. Both the games are arcade-oriented, so it's the action that matters. You control players from a top-down perspective, with either joystick or keyboard (the keys of which can be redefined). The digitized speech is excellent, and the games play very smoothly with reasonably realistic ball physics. Overall, definitely two of the most neglected pioneers in the genre that deserve a much closer look from fans of the sport. Two thumbs up, way up!
