Press A to HIKE ball

Move quarter back around

Hit B to throw ball...

... while ball is in air, you can move ALL receivers to try to catch ball...

You get 4 downs to try to throw the ball, then you run the ball beyond the top of the screen.. this loops you back to the bottom where you can keep scoring until you get stopped...

Game ends upon interception or going beyond 4 downs.

why did it take forever to port

Because some of it was converting between the languages... but the biggest thing was in original i used color numbers to distinguish between different things, and in NX i used character #s instead... at first i messed up ALL the numbers and none were properly correlating properly (happens when you are half asleep), for example, after i hiked the ball, all of my players turned into footballs!

I was able to fix everything by changing the numbers into discriptive variable names... after i did that i was able to get things straight! But i had to go back and forth between the two programs and figure out what went where with all if those IF THEN ELSE IF etc statements...

Had i used descriptive variables in the original version, i could have avoided all the headaches... for future games i will do that for the original version ....

Thanky :) at the last second i thought to add some commentary at the key moments, it does add abit more fun to the game :)

Can u believe that i have been trying for a few years to make a football type game, but could never figure out easy set of controls... my biggest hangup was after i throw the ball, how to select one of my players to control to catch ball... the breakthru was a "well, duh" moment... after the ball is thrown, simply let you move ALL players at the same time ;)
