Description

The Backyard sports series lets you play games with a group of virtual kids, some of whom happen to be young versions of professional athletes. Backyard Hockey is (obviously) a hockey game complete with a National Hockey League Player's Association license.

Players can create a junior avatar of themselves and draft a team from 30 other backyard kids and kid versions of 10 NHL superstars then deck themselves out in their favorite uniforms and hit the ice. Standard sports simulation game types are available including exhibition games and season play but the emphasis is on fun and accessibility for all ages in a fight free, "pond hockey" environment.
