There weren't any videos of its gameplay online - so I shot one of the one known machine in existence which is at Galloping Ghost Arcade --

I really like that game.  Too bad Electronic Arts never released it. (EA was toying with arcade games around that time. They released Madden, and it didn't do as well as they hoped, so they shelved any further arcade development.)

Looks like a mix of RC Pro Am & Micro Machines with a dash of stradegy added in for good measure. Not sure how the arcade market would have responded to that type of a game at that time.

Madden was a flop in the arcades. We even play tested & operated one at a very popular & trendy college bar at the time and it barely made even descent money. NFL Blitz (despite being older) was still killing it.

The arcade environment was just never the place for a long stradegy based style football game. That's for the home market. Arcade games must be quick and flashy.
