SLAP SHOTSlap shot is a fast action, one or two player ice hockey game. The rules are the same as in any ice hockey game. There are 3 three minute periods in the game. To score you must take and maintain possession of the puck, skate down ice to your opponent's goal and shoot the puck into the net. Your opponent will attempt to steal the puck from your player in the following ways by out-skating you, manoeuvring across your path, intercepting a pass or by "checking" the player. The puck can be passed from player to player in a number of directions and at varying speeds, It is also possible to control the strength of a bodycheck on your opponent: however, you will be penalized for unnecessary roughness if you check too aggressively.
