Friday Flyers: Atari Soccer (1979)

Do you like Atari? Well then, do you like Soccer? You do? Then I have the game for you!

I’m sure I’ve played Atari’s Soccer in my youth, I can’t quite recall where…though it was probably at the bowling alley. I do however remember getting the flesh on my hand pinched on one of the trak-balls. I was surprised to see it spelled as Trak-Ball by the way, but it’s right there on the second flyer.

As always I want to give a very large thanks to the Arcade Flyer Archive for the awesome scanned flyers you see above.

    Fun game that makes excellent use of the track (I mean “trak”)-ball.
    This flyer really captures the 70s feel of Atari.

    A pretty rare game too. It was at California Extreme last year and I finally got to play it. I still have yet to play a 4 person game, maybe this year if it comes back.
