Sensible Software's small-man visual style became their trademark in the early 90s. It's first use was in an uncompleted Sensible Olympics game which was due for release to tie in with the 1992 games.
Although most people seemed to like either Sensible Soccer
or Kick Off
, Sensible's boss Jon Hare
was a major fan of Kick Off
, commenting in 1991 that he wished he'd written it "because it sold well, and deserved to sell well".
