    Pigskin 621AD is a Midway arcade sports game that has teams comprised of cavemen, Vikings, and knights competing in a brutal version of football. With no rules and using whatever weapons come to hand, the player must carry the ball into the opposing endzone however they can.

    A Genesis conversion was created between contract developers Developer Resources and publisher RazorSoft that was endorsed by professional football coach Jerry Glanville (who at the time was coaching the Atlanta Falcons). This port was renamed Jerry Glanville's Pigskin Footbrawl and was exclusive to North America.

    Critical Reception

    When the Genesis version was released Electronic Gaming Monthly issued the following scores, 5,7,6,4 adding, "...this is one fun game! Even though the football is violent, this game is a killer. Forget about the rules as there aren't any! Get a friend for a two player brawl and play the game like it has never been played before".
