Gazza's Superstar Soccer is a football game released for the Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum, Amiga 500/600, Atari ST and Commodore 64 platforms. It was created in 1989 by Empire Interactive, and was named after the popular English footballer Paul Gascoigne.[1] It was also released in the Netherlands and Germany as Bodo Illgner's Super Soccer[2] and in Scandinavia as Anders Limpar's Proffs Fotboll

The game was included in several sports games compilations: Soccer Mania[citation needed] or Grandstand.[3] The game had also a sequel, named Gazza II.[4]

Gameplay[edit]

The game has no scroll. Instead, it has three different screens showing one third of the field each. In one you get a side view of the middle of the field. When the ball goes out of the screen, you see a new screen with the goal at its top (the camera is "flying" over the middle of the field)

It also has a triangle to indicate the height and side effect of each shot[citation needed]
