In this semi-fmv game you play a rookie facing his first game as starting quarterback on a fictional team, and this just happens to be The Big Game.

The entire game consists of this confrontation, upon start of the game you watch a video of a kickoff and return, and then you get to select among 110 plays (100 passing and 10 running) and assing a snap count. The meat of the game is on the passing plays, were you are switched to a 3rd person behind-the-quarterback view from which you can see oncoming rushers as well as zoom in on any receiver and via a targeting cursor make passes, or scramble if you don't find any open man, etc.

Graphics consists mostly of fmv and super-imposed digitized images of no more than 320 x 200 in resolution. There are also 6 difficulty settings to choose from.
