Touchdown Football - Manual

DescriptionSubmit Description
This simple football game is the only one for the 7800 and it is based on the 1985 Electronic Arts title with the same name. Besides the NTSC version of Impossible Mission, this is the buggiest game in the 7800 library: it is impossible to hit a field goal at any range. You create every play at the line of scrimmage by giving the receivers specific routes to run and by telling the line how to block. The running game is almost non-existent except for quarterback bootlegs, and the game is so slow that it is hard to enjoy. The AI is incredibly lacking as well. Even the team's cheerleader is bigger than the players themselves! All is not bad news, however. Since the 7800 is backwards compatible, you can play some better 2600 football games without unplugging the Pro Sysem. (Contributed by Cousin Vinnie Vineyard)
