Jaleco’s Goal! certainly doesn’t hold up in terms of gameplay, but its cover art? We love it.
There’s something we really like about football video games from the 80s and 90s – before all the licensing deals arrived. The focus was on the sport itself, and box art didn’t have to accommodate real players and sponsor logos. Goal! is a fine example, recalling some of the great posters from past World Cup tournaments.
