Football! has five players to each side playing a three minutes game. A number on the top of the field displays the number of downs and serves as a yardage marker. A touchdown scores 7 points while a field goal scores 3 points.

The offense has 6 different running/passing option plays available. Additionally, there's a field goal-play option (play #7) and a punt-play option (play #8). The defense has a selection of plays to neutralize the offense's action. The plays are selected using the directional stick to the right position, as follows (where "C" represents the central position):
 8  1  2
  \ | /
7 - C - 3
  / | \
 6  5  4
After selecting their respective plays, the offense player hikes the ball to the quarterback with the action button. The quarterback has a running or passing option in all plays except for #7 and #8. The direction of pass is controlled by the directional stick. Defensive players will follow the ball automatically.

The game has two options of speed levels: Collegiate level (selected by pressing "1") and Pro level (selected by pressing "2").
