Season 17 Round 3 - 10-Yard Fight

Recommended Posts

This season we're playing all black box titles.  Up next is 10-Yard Fight.  We're playing the Famicom version because it features arcade style scoring that'll work better for the competition than how football is traditionally scored.  I've linked to the NES manual as both versions play the same.

I've actually never played this one.  Should be fun.  I'm looking forward to Pinball myself.

First of all, the Japanese version is really nothing like the US version so that manual isn't very helpful.  The Japanese version is pretty much a port of the arcade version where you're always on offense and need to get a first down or touchdown before the timer expires.  Secondly, this game NEEDS a joystick, the directional pad is painful to use.  I'm going to grab my old NES Advantage and see if that helps my score.  I made it to the Super bowl, but it's pretty impossible at that point as you need to either get a first down each play or score as you don't have enough time for anything else.  Still, it's a lot more fun than I thought it would be.  Beats the NES version by a mile.

I wasted an hour trying to improve my score but couldn't.  The game is so inconsistent that patterns seem impossible to spot.  I must be missing something,

110,700 (I think I calculated that correctly).  Rolled the score!  I think I've figured this game out.  It's a lot more fun than the US version that's for sure.

 

 

Right before I rolled the score (had a feeling that it was going to roll over to 0)

Obviously you can't get to the Super Bowl level with such a low score unless you rolled it.

I thought it might be helpful for the offensive controls and game play as those are the same.  But, yes, the defensive instructions are useless and can be ignored.

I understand football insomuch that playing this game reinforces the little that I understand about football. But I do know this: every time there's an interception, it really pisses me off. Slowly but surely, I'm getting better.

I made it to the super level.  Although I'm clearly doing something wrong because my score is nowhere near Tempest's.  I'm guessing I'm not completing the halves fast enough to collect the time bonuses.  I'll have to work on it.

I looped the Super Bowl a few times which helped.  Also, getting into the end zone from kickoff gets you a nice 10,000 bonus (if you can do it that is).

Can't decide if I don't like the game b/c I'm bad, or I'm bad b/c I don't like it. Nevertheless, I think I'm getting the hang of it a little. Made it to college! Whoo! And beat the default high score! When I make a complete pass, gain yards, or score a touchdown, I definitely start liking it. When they get an interception on the other hand...🤬

Don't throw the ball over the other teams players, it's almost always an interception.  I either threw the ball to my guy right away or tossed it to one of the guys on the left right.

So a long pass, although satisfying, is not likely to be complete huh. It becomes mostly a running game then. A 10-yard fight, if you will.

Yeah that's what I discovered.  Remember, this isn't a real football game.

Gotcha.  That makes sense.  I didn't get very far into the first half.

I got down around the 15 yard line once, but haven't made it all the way yet.

Not to give away secrets, but there's strategies that will help with that.  They're not foolproof though.

Finally, I surpassed my first attempt!  I had to re-learn the interception thing.

I'm surprised more people aren't playing this.  This is now one of my favorite NES games, and I had never played it before this contest.
