Fun American Football Running Game - Lateral Collateral

Rating: 8.2/10 - 434 votes

Make smart lateral passes in order to score spectacular touchdowns in this quick-fire, fun American football game online! Lateral Collateral is a very enjoyable, fast-paced, anticipation and timing skill game where you must guide your team the length of the field and bring the ball into the end zone to score a touchdown by making multiple lateral (sideways) thrown passes as you run. Shifting the ball from side to side to avoid crunching tackles from the opposing defense is the key – you must pass the ball around almost like a rugby team in order to succeed!

Reasons to play this quirky online football game: Test and exercise your fast reactions, reflexes and timing skill to avoid collisions that lose the play. Unleash your competitive side as you attempt to keep your running moves going, and go ‘deep’ to defeat all opponents. You also don't have to be an avid follower of the NFL to enjoy the high-intensity action here!

Strategy to win: Remember the big picture at all times – your job is to get the ball into the end zone. It doesn't have to be pretty; it just has to be Effective! Focus, and get your anticipation and timing skills sharp! Try to wait until the best possible moment to pass the ball - This type of play can take two or more defenders out with a good pass. Like any good offense, you must do your best to avoid giving away interceptions, and keep the ball away from the motivated, diving tacklers.

How to Play: A Flash-based, American football simulation game for notebook, laptop and desktop PC / Mac (with certain browsers). In each increasingly-difficult level, your goal is to bring your team the entire length of the field by repeatedly throwing lateral passes to keep the run alive to score a touchdown. You have a top-down / birds eye overhead view of the action.

Your team runs automatically from bottom to top toward the opponent's end zone. Use the Left and Right Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard to throw the ball to a player on your left or right. Once you safely reach the opposition's end zone, you progress to the next level. You begin the game with 5 lives. You lose one life if the player carrying the ball is tackled, if you throw the ball out of bounds, or if you throw an ‘interception’ to an opponent. Ouch! How far can you get compared to your best friend, school classmates and family members?

If this Flash-based game no longer works on IE11 or Chrome browser on your PC / MAC, try playing Firefox browser with Adobe Flash player installed.
