    Game Introduction

    The player must score a touchdown in the time allotted to go from high school and college ball all the way to the Pros and the Super Bowl.

    Each level starts on the kick-off with the player carrying the ball as far up the field as possible before being tackled. Then, as the quarterback, you can either run or pass the ball to a receiver. An intercepted pass earns a penalty of 20 yards. Running out of bounds stops the clock. Extra points after touchdowns can either be kicked or run into the end zone.

        Awwwww yeaaaaaaa

        I better actually play this one and submit a score seeing as it's my nomination.

        Certain it wont be to everyone's tastes as it's very different from your average shooter,platformer, maze.

        youtube videos and inp files wont help you either, another reason I like this for MGL. Nominated it almost every MGL since I started playing, so I'm pretty chuffed to see it finally come up.

          Once again I've seen a game selection, reacted due to struggling at it in the past and after a few games realized what I was doing wrong.

          Until 15 minutes ago my best score was around 3,000. Never scored a touchdown before. Just one tiny little thing I hadn't picked up on before made all the difference. And no I can't say what it was as that would be giving out tips which upsets people in the first week.

          Not as bad as I first thought.

            Gave this a very quick bash on the keyboard and it's not good, really think you need a joystick to play this one.

            Anyone know of a cheap ready built arcade joystick I can use on my laptop? Need to fix up my Mame cab, but can't see that happening in the next 2 weeks

            Edit: Actually, I should dig out my Logitech Gamepad and see if that's any better Maybe tomorrow

              You don't need a joystick at all. It's no different in controls to any other older game. 8 way joystick and 2 buttons

                I have played this game quite a bit - I'm okay at it, not great - there is one aspect of this game where I think a joystick will be easier.

                Only had one quick game like I said, so I'll give it another go on the keyboard but until I try with a joystick I guess I can't say 100% if a joystick is easier on this one.

                  Good stuff. I hope you enjoy getting into it over two weeks, learning it's secrets, as there are quite a number of little things about this game. It seems all chaos at first and pretty random.

                  had a quick bash just to get a score up I am rusty, didn't get past college team. I'm not great at this game either but enjoy the challenge and getting further past the teams.

                  I have one pretty cool secret I know of for this game, which I'll hold until the 2nd week unless someone finds it out first just something I found out while playing and trying some things over the years.
                  I can't find it talked about on the interwebs either which is strange

                      Sorry Mikie, just editing your post. It's better not to drop hints and secrets until the 2nd week of the comp...

                      1st day is a little too early

                        I hope this is as enjoyable as Super Basketball which we got back in MGL.. 12? I never played many of the sports titles back in the day, my local arcades and shops didn't have any. I remember Punch Out at Grundys back in the 80s but other than that no sports title ever took much of my money until SuperStars Baseball showed up mid-90s. Will be loading up the ROM tonight and having a bash

                            I'd be happy for anybody to put forward their 'little secrets' immediately. Worst nom in MGL history? I feel like somebody's just asked me to watch Any Given Sunday on a loop for two weeks. I can't stand American football.

                              Either can I but I've loved this game for years.
