Ice Hockey is an ice hockey game for one player against the computer or two players. Each team consists of two players, one offensive and one defensive. At any given time one player is active and can be controlled while the other remains inactive; if the puck is near your goal then the defensive player becomes active, otherwise you control the offensive player. Each player has the ability to shoot the puck at a variety of angles, and can even body check their opponent! The game lasts for three minutes, and whoever scores more points by the end of that time wins. The game can be played at normal or high speed, and optionally one of the players can be handicapped to give an inexperienced player more of an advantage.

Activision offered a patch, called the Activision All-Star Hockey Team, as a prize for this game. However, the requirements for this patch was different that other games. You had to beat the computer in Game 1 however, you did NOT have to send in a photograph of your TV screen as proof. For this game, you sent Activision a letter telling them the score. The letter must be signed by you and a witness who saw you beat the computer.
