Glad you're still making games Valdir.

I've played this for some 20 matches and am surprised they keep picking me! I like the way the flow of the match is represented by the horizontally moving ball but playing is so good I really yearn for a pure trainer mode.

...so I fired up ZX-Striker :mrgreen:

I completely understand the need to separate from a project when it is finished but I wonder if you would consider a separate, pure trainer game?

Just a thought.

One day* I would like to write a cricket version of this, perhaps more like ZX-Striker, the possibilities with spin, bounce and swing would keep me captivated forever :mrgreen:

Oh, that might eclipse CRL's Test Match as my most favourite Cricket game on the Spectrum :-)

I'm playing it in little bursts. That's an interesting take on football games.

Is there any interactivity in the match screen where the ball goes left and right?

No, in the match screen you just wait and pray that they pass you the ball,pretty much like in real life :mrgreen:
But when you are injured or not playing it skips that screen directly to the results.

Last night I did a quick write up to let everyone know that it was out and then plastered it over social media networks along with a lot of hastags.
I also linked in getting the game here
