Pelé's Soccer is an Atari 2600 game based on the famous football (soccer) player Pelé, and published in 1980.
It features basic graphics, realistic (for that time) ball-handing and goal-keeping techniques using the Atari joystick. Each team has one forward, two defenders, and a goalkeeper on the field at all times. The player's goalkeeper is always controlled by the computer unless they save a shot. Each game consists of two halves of various time lengths (depending on the game settings being used). All the forwards and backs run in their proper formation. There are 54 different game variations (27 single-player and 27 multiplayer) that allow for different speeds, game lengths, and goal sizes.
