Simple Soccer

My Homage to Sensible Soccer

This little page came about to let people know to about my current pet project:

I'm making my own Sensible Soccer clone!

22.02.03 - Buy a Sensible Soccer inspired T-shirt!

08.02.03 - The exellent work by Massimo and team on Yoda Soccer has shamed me into doing some work on Simple Soccer.
Here is the combined tactics and replay demo, a small start on the road to victory! Watch this space for more!

12.07.02 - I'm posting the instant replay demo as I've not had much time to bolt it on to the tactics demo.

30.04.02 - I've implemented SWOS tactic file handling. At the moment it's only as a small demo application.
However I will be expanding this to act as a full tactics editor just like in SWOS.
This features an abstract ball and 10 players and the pitch layout. You can select a SWOS tactic file
and they all run about quite convincingly! Any suggestions or improvements on this are welcome.
Source included, thanks to Jonathan Daniel for his SWOS Java tactics demo.

New: Players run onto pitch in a more realistic way, rudimentary pitch markings, select a tactics file. Circles!

12.06.01 - The latest playable demo. This is very old and needs the other elements of the game added to it,
but at least it shows my direction. New graphics are under development.
