A Gory Twist on Classic Football
Brutal Sports Football is a hilariously violent (American) football sports video game developed in 1993 by Millennium Interactive. You can choose to play as various prison-hardened teams in three different game modes: Unfriendly, League, and Knockout. Each mode has varying modifiers on the basic "no rules football". All the rules of normal play are thrown out the window creating a large contrast to games like Joe Montana, or Madden NFL. In fact, this game is more like full contact Soccer with hands than normal Football, as throwing the ball into a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœnet' on either side of the field is what scores the goals. Additionally after the initial kick-off, the whistle is only blown to reset the field after a goal or to end the game, not when the ball is dropped. To win, either score the most goals, or kill the entire other team before they kill you. Playing against the AI at full difficulty is quite a challenge, and unskilled players will likely have their entire team killed before the seven-minute rounds are up. Injuries are dispensed with the help of various weapons scattered around the field. These include lightning bolts that knock out the enemies, magic orbs that encase the enemy team in ice, and swords. Swords can be used to forcefully remove your opponent's head in a spectacularly bloody fashion, increasing your crowd appeal and scoring you more points! Overall this game was pretty humorous and fun. However, fans of true football games likely will not enjoy playing for long, due to its mutated nature on the original game of football. Also, gore cannot be disabled, so those who dislike that will likely not enjoy this game. For best results and minimal motion sickness, run in DOSBox at 3600-3800 cycles with zero frame-skip. This plays the game at what seems to be closer to real-time, making it smoother, faster, and not to mention more exciting.
