There's only one thing better than foot-to-ball on grass and that's foot-to-ball in a neon arcade. But lo, what wizardry is this? Now you don't even need to be in the same glittering arcade as your toe-poking chums, because Super Arcade Football [official site] has now added a beta online mode.

A ball, sure, or a cabbage, a cauliflower, a Harvey Nichols bag filled with scrunched-up newspaper, a rock, a crystal orb, a head, a skull - anything you have at hand is grand.

I remember when this were all trees, and we'd ride the hog to market to play football on the village green with Amiga joysticks for goalposts. Proper football, that, proper football. Developers OutOfTheBit remember those simpler times too, and this week released the first version of their arcade kick 'em up onto Steam Early Access.
