    MicroLeague Wrestling is a turn-based strategy game released in 1987 for the Commodore 64 and Atari ST. In 1989 it was also ported to the Amiga and PC/DOS.

    MicroLeague Wrestling is the first licensed WWF video game. The first digitized home video game. Also, most notable, the first digitization of real world athletes in an interactive home experience.


    The gameplay was a simple turn-based affair where the two wrestlers picked from a list of moves displayed on their side of the screen in an attempt to knock the player's health down far enough to pin the opponent and win the match. Players could select from a list of standard moves, along with a more powerful finishing move.

    The original release of MicroLeague Wrestling contained a floppy disk which allowed players to participate in Hulk Hogan vs. Randy Savage or Hogan vs. Paul Orndorff. In 1988, two expansions were released. The first featured Savage vs. Honky Tonk Man and Hacksaw Jim Duggan vs. "King" Harley Race, while the other contained Hulk Hogan vs. "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase and Jake "The Snake" Roberts vs. Ravishing Rick Rude.

    The game also featured pre-match promos, with Gene Okerlund interviewing the combatants of the match, as well as in-match commentary conducted by a combination of (depending on which version of the game you were playing) Vince McMahon, Jesse Ventura, Bruno Sammartino, Gorilla Monsoon, and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan. All of the promos and commentary appeared in a text-based format onscreen.
