American Football Running Back Game - Football Arcade

Rating: 7.1/10 - 6869 votes

Football Arcade is a fun online American football game where you control a robust football player (running back) who has to run the whole length of the field to score a great touchdown. Usually you would have teammates to help you get to the End Zone - but this time, you’re all on your own against a team of mean, tough-tackling defense guys (cornerbacks, safety..) You must avoid these opponents, collect power-ups, and try not to get tackled in this addicting, fast-paced survival game.

You must use all of your weaving and dodging skills to help your player reach the end of the field to score a dramatic game winning touchdown. You’ll need quick reactions and nifty fingers, as there are so many opposition players trying to take you down. There are gold coins to collect to increase your score, and special power-ups to give you a much-needed boost. Think you can dodge your way to the End Zone? Good, strap on your shoulder pads Turbo, and let’s get running!

How to Play: Control your player using your computer mouse (He wears blue, the opposing team wears red). Your player runs automatically, and will mimic (copy) the movements of your computer mouse/ touchpad as you move around the field to avoid tackles and collect Power-ups. There are two types of opponents trying to stop you.

There are guys that stand still that you have to swerve to avoid. There are also other opponents that chase you – and they come from behind, so beware! If they catch you, or you run into one of the opposition, you lose a life. If you lose all of your lives (indicated in the top left corner of the game screen), it’s game over and you have to start all over again. Collect gold coins as you sprint along to increase your Score in the top right corner. There are also two types of Power-ups that you can collect. Large coins with a Lightning Bolt on them give you a burst of super speed. Blue coins with a Shield on them protect you from opponents for a short time.

At the bottom of the game screen, the little football icon shows how far along the pitch you have traveled. Once you get to the End Zone, you score the decisive touchdown and win the Super Bowl trophy. This brings you to a Bonus Level, where you have to avoid more opponents who are furious that you are taking a celebratory lap of honor.
