SUPER CHALLENGE FOOTBALL by M Network c 1982 INSTRUCTIONS (for 2 players only) --------------------------------- The object of the game is to out-score your opponent. There's passing, rushing, blocking, and touchdowns! Simulated 15 minute quarters. You set both offense and defense. Individual control of both the quarterback and linebacker. THE GAME -------- This is two player gridiron action! One player controls the Home Team, the other player controls the Visitors. There are 5 men on offense: 4 linemen and the quarterback. There's a 5 man defense: 4 linemen and the linebacker. The team with the flashing ball has possession. The field is regulation 100 yards. Each quarter begins on the 20 yard line. As a team moves downfield, the field moves too! The score, time left in the quarter and first down markers are displayed during play. During the huddle you will see downs and the quarter of play. There's passing, rushing, tackling, interceptions and incompletes. No kicks! No out of bounds. Touchdowns count 7 points (point after touchdown is automatic), 2 points for a safety. Check out all the stats during the huddle. [Image of the screen. The quarter time is at the upper center of the screen. The score is the two numbers around the quarter time. The defensive men don't have the ball. The down and the quarter are the numbers at the bottom center of the playing field. The first down yardage is the blue marker in front of the ball. The offensive men is the team with the ball.] THE CONTROLLERS --------------- Use your joystick controllers with this game. Be sure the controller cables are securely plugged into the back of your game console. Hold the controller so the red button is to your upper left. OFFENSIVE PLAY CALLING ---------------------- Before each play, when the teams are lined up on the field, program the 4 linemen. Before being programmed, each lineman faces the quarterback. After being programmed, each lineman faces the opposing team. Now choose one of five running patterns, and program all 4 linemen. Here's how: Push red button, without moving joystick: designates the actual pass receiver. (Only Program one actual receiver!) Push up: offensive player will block upward Push down: offensive player will block downward Push* toward quarterback: offensive player will block straight ahead Push* toward other team: offensive player will go out for a pass as decoy receiver * push left or right, depending on field position. DEFENSIVE PLAY CALLING Before each play, when the teams are lined up on the field, program the 4 defensive linemen. Before being programmed, each lineman faces the linebacker. After being programmed, he faces the opposing team. Now choose one of four defensive moves, and program all 4 defensive linemen. Here's how: Push up: defensive player will rush up then go for QB Push down: defensive player will rush down then go for QB Push* toward other team: defensive player will rush offensive player straight on then rush the QB Push* toward linebacker: defensive player covers offensive counterpart going out for a pass * push left or right, depending on field position TO HIKE: After all the offensive and defensive men have been programmed, offense presses the RED BUTTON to hike the ball. Once the ball is hiked, linemen carry our their programmed patterns. TO RUN: Once the ball is hiked, control the quarterback and linebacker with your respective joysticks. TO PASS: Once the ball is hiked, press the RED BUTTON and the quarterback passes the ball towards the receiver. Once the pass is in motion, the Joystick controls the receiver. Move him to complete the pass. WINNING TIPS ------------ * A quick way to catch the ball carrier is to run off one end of the field. You quickly reappear at the other end. This is useful when the linebacker is way behind the quarterback. Go off the screen and appear ahead of the quarterback at the other end. * Use directional blocking (up/down) to open up a hole in the offensive line, then run through it! * Program several linemen to go out for a pass. (Remember, only one actual receiver.) This fakes out defense! IMPORTANT: Be sure to turn your game unit off when not in use. And of course, this game was made by Mattel Electronics in 1982.

Emulation on mobile devices will drain your battery quite fast. I recommend playing while device is plugged into charger.
