Football moves from the arenas and stadiums to the backyard as players assemble a team of seven kids to play either a single game or an entire season of Backyard Football. In addition to regular kids, players can choose several NFL players, represented as kids, to add to their team. The game includes a number of female players with the option to field an entire female team if so desired.
As players win games, they are rewarded with special plays that can be used against the other teams. For instance, one play will knock the opposing team down while another one makes the team's jerseys and helmets into duplicates of the opposing team to confuse the quarterback.
Players can choose not only where they play, but the weather as well: sunny, rainy, or snowy. The games are announced by Sunny Day and Chuck Downfield who report on how the plays were executed and show statistics. Players have an entire playbook and can make their own custom plays as well.
Other features in the game include a choice of all 31 NFL team names and logos, custom trading cards, a point-and-click interface, and a tracking system for lifetime game and season statistics. Backyard Football is targeted at players in the five-to-ten-year-old range. ~ Lisa Karen Savignano, All Game Guide
