Game Description:

The Thrill of Victory
Atari Football is the new generation in video game simulation. For the first time players can experience the challenge and the competitive excitement of playing football so realistically that it's like being there.

Strategy and ball control...the name of the game
The video presentation is a chalk-talk that moves! The game sets up with a 7-man offense, and a 87-man defense. Each player selects a pre-programmed play. The offense selects one of four run or pass plays, the defense chooses one of four defensive plays. The object is to anticipate what the opponent's play selection will be, then out-maneuver him for either effective defense or long-yardage offense.

New Trak Ball Control.
The players huddle, line up, the ball is snapped and the play is on! Each player controls one man on his team... left and right, slant patterns, forward, back --anywhere there is a hole in the defense or running room to tackle a ball-carrier. The rest of the team moves according to the play selected. A tackle is made when the ball-carrier is touched by a defensive man. Realistic football rules apply except there are no kicking plays. Scoring is 7 points for a touchdown run, 6 points for a touchdown pass, and 2 points for a safety.
