Overview

No Caption Provided

Football Frenzy (not to be confused with the 1980's computer game of the same name) is a 2D American-football game developed and released by SNK for arcades (running Neo Geo MVS hardware) on January 31, 1992.

Similar to the Tecmo Bowl and High Impact series of arcade American football games, matches in Football Frenzy are fast-paced, simplistic, and played in a horizontally-scrolling perspective. Players pick from one of ten fictional teams as they try to win. It is the third and last game of the sport developed by SNK (the other two making up the Touch Down Fever duology).

It was later released on the Neo Geo AES on February 21, 1992 and ported to the Neo Geo CD (as a launch title) exclusively in Japan on September 9, 1994.

Gameplay

No Caption Provided

Football Frenzy can be played by one or two players. Characters movements are controlled with an eight-way joystick. Actions like hiking the ball, kicking, and speeding up the player's run are all controlled by the A button; the B,C,and D buttons pass the ball to other characters who are designated by those buttons. Players select a play from a wide selection of running, passing, or kicking plays, which are then executed with help from the AI. Just like regular football, the offensive team attempts to take the ball to their opponent's end zone, while the defensive team guards their end zone and attempts to take over control of the ball. The player with the most points after a set time period wins.
