American Football Running Back Game - Speed Back

Rating: 9.1/10 - 6824 votes

Brave running backs are relentless in their quest for gaining extra yardage - driving the offence forward, smashing through tackles, and powerfully taking the ball upfield with huge linebackers in their path. Now, it's time for you to step into the cleats of an offensive running back, get into ‘Beast Mode’, and make reaching the end zone your ultimate goal!

Speed Back is a very challenging, reactions-based American football simulation game where you must dodge and weave around defenders, and reach the end zone to score a touchdown in each increasingly difficult level. Playing the role of a lone running back with no offensive tackles or guards for protection, you must use fast reactions and nimble footwork to evade the oncoming defense, and reach the end zone unscathed.

Sharp observation skills and swift keyboard control is very important as you attempt to power through the mean defense. Good strategy also comes into play as you decide when and where to use your specialized running back skills. The end zone is close… think you can make it?

How to Play: In each of the 15 progressively-challenging levels, your job is to guide your running back player (in the blue jersey) all the way to the end zone without being tackled to the ground. Once the whistle blows, use the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard to control the movement of your attacker. Dodge and weave around the defensive players, and carry the ball into the end zone to score a touchdown and progress to the next level.

You have two special offensive moves which can be used to evade tackles. Press the A Key to ‘Stiff Arm’ a defender and brush him off, or the S Key to perform a ‘Spin’ move to bamboozle your opponents. Both of these actions can only each be used once in each level, so time them wisely. Also, collect lightning bolt power ups to increase the running speed of your player.

You begin the game with three ‘possessions’ (lives), indicated by the football icons in the bottom left corner of the game screen. Each time you fail to make it to the end zone, you lose one life, and must replay that level. However, if you score three touchdowns, you earn an extra life. When all of your lives are used, it's game over, and you must Re-start at Level 1.
