In 1978 this primitive collection of sliders, wires and knobs was the ultimate in cutting-edge football gaming.
Sportel was briefly everywhere, the uncontested number 1, cropping up in ITV’s World Cup magazine as well as in Roy of the Rovers comic... although no one ever seems to have known any kid who actually owned a hi-tech Pong footer game played through your regular living-room TV.
WOW – “The electronic ‘brain’ of this marvel actually understands the game being played, and scores according to ‘The Rules of the Game’”!
COOYER – “The teams or players are distinguished by different colours, to make life easier ‘On the Pitch’, just like the real thing”!
PLUS – “Three playing speeds, realistic dribbling skills, and serving facility operated from either hand control”
OH YEAH – There’s tennis and squash on here too!
If you like this sort of thing then, for less than half the price of Sportel Pong Soccer, you should pick up a copy of Got, Not Got.
