The Slugger (1985)
In this early UK-developed baseball simulation, one or two player matches can be played over 3,6 or 9 innings, with 3 different computer skill levels. Gameplay is arcade-style, so no need to worry about statistics. The main viewing area is a forced-perspective view of the field, with a small side-viewed window of the pitcher’s delivery. When fielding, control automatically goes to the player nearest to the ball, and a play doesn’t end until the pitcher has the ball back. The game has cheerleaders on screen between innings and lots of advertising boards and other slogans. Developed by Image Software and produced by Mastertronic Group Ltd.
