Pelé's Soccer is a 1981 sports game from Atari, Inc. for the Atari VCS (renamed to Atari 2600 in late 1982). Based on the famous footballer Pelé, it features ball-handing and goal-keeping techniques using the joystick. Re-releases have been named Championship Soccer to avoid using Pelé's likeness and name, due to copyright.
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.
