Product Description Your favorite season never ends with this electronic football game from Mattel. A re-release of the classic handheld game from the 1970s, it features the original football field, LCD "players" and sound effects. ST key shows game status with automatic downs and yardage, SC key shows the score and time. Features 3 offense control keys, computer-controlled defense, K key for punting and field goals and 2 play speeds. Uses 2 AA batteries, included. Ages 8 and up. Imported.~5-1/2Lx3-1/4Wx1D" Amazon.com Mattel's 1977 handheld electronic football game proved a surprise hit that spawned numerous imitators. This replica (now with the word "classic" in the title) is a fun, inexpensive shot of nostalgia, though its design will be lost on new pigskin fans because this isn't so much football, but a football-like exercise. The object of the game is to control a lone running back around LED defenders--little red dashes, to be precise--to get first downs on the way to a touchdown, or at least a field goal. Players anticipate the moves of the computer-controlled defenders to slide through gaps without being tackled. It plays as much like Space Invaders as football, but that simplicity makes it hypnotically fun. The same cheesy beeps trumpet tackles, kickoffs, and touchdowns. The game runs on two AA batteries (not included) and measures 6 by 3.5 by 1 inches, which should easily fit in any pair of hands. --Porter B. Hall From the Manufacturer This electronic game challenges a player to play football against a computer opponent. The object is to be the team that scores the most points. Just like the original Mattel Football Game. Plays just like real life football. Can be played alone or against a friend
