Remembering SWOS

Video Games

Ah SWOS as its known to people who have played this great and wonderful game is one of the best football games ever made.


It had the easiest control scheme of any football game ever made, The PC version which I’am currently playing allows you to move your player using the directional keys and everything else was mapped to just one button, CTRL.


How is that possible? I hear you ask, Well dear reader I will tell you.

Depending on how hard you press the CTRL button your player would either pass the ball, lob the ball or shoot. If the ball was in the air the player would go for a header. If you didn’t have the ball the button would either switch control to different players or go for a slide tackle. Sounds complicated but it really isn’t.


The game also boasted a huge number of club and international teams and in a time before lawyers each of the 1’500 teams and 27,000 players had proper names.


If you havent already played this gem and if you fancy something

 a bit different from FIFA or PES then you owe it to yourself to go pick this up.

Its on Good Old Games for £3.89 GO GET IT.
