COWBOY FOOTBALL is a new take on the classic electronic sports games of the '70s and '80s. The computer controls the defense, you control the offense. Kicking - The kick power meter indicates the kick power. Press KICK, when the meter is active, to kick with the desired level. Move the quarterback backwards to snap the ball. Once the ball is snapped, the defense and your receiver will become active. Press PASS to throw a pass to your receiver. You can safely throw the ball over the head of defenders that are in the backfield. Otherwise, they will intercept the ball. Press the KICK button at the line of scrimmage to bring up the kick meter and attempt a field goal. The chance of making a field goal goes up with attempts from shorter distances, as well as the power of the kick. To punt the ball, press kick after the ball is snapped to bring up the kick meter and punt. There are 3 levels of difficulty that increase the speed and intelligence of the defense, as well as the accuracy of field goals.
