Found 8th Jan 2016
I still get a little excited when I see these little gems reduced. I already own SWOS and Cannon Fodder on GoG. I think it's time to pick up CF2 for the collection.

They have been slightly cheaper in the past, but I ain't slapping a decrease in value over 20p

Cannon fodder looks like a mega drive port. I am sure I had that years ago with some free emulator. It was ok but not a patch on the Amiga version.

Also, if you're having a few beers tonight. They have Sensible Soccer 06 for £1.99, that way the disappointment won't be as bad

Paid £1.27 as it made me check out in $ for some reason after I registered. Will be writing an angry e-mail to get my 8p back.

​Your CD32 still works!? Oh man, one of my favourite ever games machines.
Bargains never been so much fun
Spent hours playing this back in the day.
Just brilliant games - still regularly play SWOS on the Xbox360 whenever my old friends are round (not got gamepads on my laptop).

Yeah - was one of the first games I bought on the 360! Sadly not £1.19 - think it's £6.75?

Yer, that's what I said
Sensible Soccer was fun. Isn't that the game where they were cheap and didn't pay the licensing to get the players names? So Steve Bruce would have been Steve Bryce and so on, they just changed a letter here or there as I recall.

Cannon Fodder is simple and great fun to play, quality game to.

Heat for the brief but smile on face nostalgia trip I just went on momentarily

Let me find my Quickshot 2......
They are using dosbox, the game is a bit slower and less accurate. Also I forget this game is from 1993 not the 80's. The pc version in dos is actually better than the Amiga version, which didn't surprise me after I noticed the date.

Bulletproof them Zipsticks still have mine. And the old Amiga is still going strong even if I don't have a table these days big enough to use it on!! oO

Nope, SWOS had all the real players names, and I don't think licences were needed back then like todays money grabbing market with the likes of FIFA and PES.

Simpler times.

The only way to play it, I have my A1200 a C64 and a Zipstik. Have both my C64, Amiga and desk PC all on an L shaped Computer Desk...if only I had room for more retro computers, an Atari 800xl would also be nice.

The console versions of Sensi didn't, Amiga version did. SWOS took up so much of my life. I would play a whole season in one day.

Must have been another SS game in the series then from that generation, I swear there was at least one with nearly the real players names but not quite. I am sure there was licensing back then, even Pre-Premiership times, was just a hell of a lot cheaper.

Read younggrobbo's comment above perhaps there is where the confusion lies...although why did they need licenses for the console version and not the computer versions...weird.

Certainly both the Sensible Soccer 92 European Champions Edition as well as the original and subsequent releases of SWOS on the Amiga all had real player names...as I still have an Amiga this is not just a fuzzled hazy memory either
So how do you play these games for Gog.com, is there an emulator or something?

I was a huge Amiga fan also! and this was my weapon of choice:

It was the standard Sensible Soccer games. Not SWOS.

I played a lot of consoles and computers in my youth, as had one or two consoles myself and played other families/friends systems. So not even sure what version of SS I played and on what system. I have a hunch though it was the Sega Mega Drive (16-bit console) version of SS that had the changed players names though.

It most certainly was, go to around 1:10 in this video on youtube, the megadrive version and then laugh at the England player names.

Brings a tear to my eye that, so funny, thanks cicobuff!

Licensing definitely was an issue even in the early 90s - for example Super Soccer, ISS, Super Sidekicks
Anyone manage to get their x360 controller to work with swos? I bought this last time it was on offer but never played it as didn't work.
nice.
bought Syndicate as well ;D
Sensi Soccer always had real names from what I recall. Kick Off and Man Utd in Europe had fake names. That is where Ryan Goggs, Andrei Konchelskis and Denis Urwin and the like came from. I still have my Amiga 500 in working order, i'll have to fire it up to check now (not right now but sometime soon).
Loved these 2 games I remember my friends banning me from scoring from corners on the first sensi soccer as good do it 99% of the time!
