Platforms: Atari 5200
Also Known As
Atari 5200 version of RealSports Soccer
Due to differences in the controllers, the Atari 5200 has a few minor variations when compared with the Atari 2600 version. When kicking the ball, different strengths can be used which kick a short, medium, or long distance (a feature the Atari 2600 version completely lacks). Buttons on the controller keypad allow players to switch between the different kicking strengths. The Atari 5200 version also allows players to select between ground kicks or lofted kicks depending on which of the two fire buttons is pressed. In the Atari 2600 version switching between team members is controlled via the joystick button; the Atari 5200 version moves this to keypad buttons.
