A pretty solid, nicely scrolling soccer game.

Screen Shots

Unlike with NFL Football, NASL Soccer had an accelerated play clock. Game play is pretty nice, with the illusion of full soccer teams accomplished by the side scrolling action. The ball is nicely drawn (better than in NFL Football). Nothing overwhelmingly good about this game - it's just a solid game that's fun with a good opponent.

Title Screen Title screen for NASL Soccer.
Soccer Field Plain, but quite effective soccer field. Actually an improvement over its peer NFL Football: perspective and the illusion of a complete soccer team.
