Description

Based on the arcade game, Blades Of Steel is a hockey arcade action game (gameplay doesn't require the need to worry about statistics or provide the ability to customize teams.) Two players can play against each other, or one player against the computer. In one player mode there are single game and tournament mode options. From time to time a fight may break out, which will provide a close up view of the two players. The player has control during the miniature fight game sequence, with the loser having to spend time in the penalty box. The referee will break up fights that go on too long, and calls a few penalties such as icing. Several short clips of digitized voices are also featured.

Trivia

NES version

In the NES version, between the second and third period of a hockey game, a quick mini game of Gradius is sometimes playable in which the player has a few seconds to try to blow up an enemy ship. There are also ads for other Konami games of that era displayed after the mini game is over.
