TrickyTwo Minute Football 3dPardon my americentrism, but, for my money, when this time of the year rolls around there's only one football worth caring about, and it ain't the one with a goalie. With Da Big Game™ just around the corner, and having already washed my jersey, calibrated my 96" television, and ordered the party subs, I went online to satisfy my yearn for helmet-crunching sports action... and in igamebank's Shockwave Two Minute Football 3D, I think I've scored a touchdown and the 2-point conversion to boot.

It's the play-offs of the helmet-only football league, and your team has just squeaked into the wild card spot. Naturally, the object of the game is to score as many points as you can in two minutes, specifically the 21 that will allow you to go on to the next round. The game is centered around offense: twenty yards for a first down, and four downs to get it. Failing to make it that far will send you back 20 yards and take 10 seconds off the clock. At the start of each down you select a play with the [A] and [D] keys ([W] to confirm) or attempt a field goal with the [K] key and the mouse. Once the ball is hiked, you can either run in with the [WASD] keys, or attempt a pass by aiming and clicking with the mouse: pulling back a little for a lob, pushing forward for a bullet. Watch out for interceptions! Whatever team-mate ends up with the ball, pull forward and break tackles by tapping the [W] key. Standard scoring applies: 6 points for a touchdown (with an option of kicking an extra point or a two-point conversion) and 3 points for a field goal.

Two Minute Football 3D might not be as deep as Madden (or even Tecmo Bowl), but it has a charm all its own. There's just something about seeing those beautifully-rendered helmets scurrying around the field that makes me smile. While it is true that it required a frustrating bit of practice mode to get the timing of the passing system right, I quickly became addicted to marching down the field two minutes at a time. Fans of the genre will also enjoy the strategic elements of the customizations available for your team.

It might not have cheese-heads or terrible towels, but Two Minute Football 3D is a joy to play and has fewer tv-timeouts than the NFL. Please note that it is indeed Shockwave, so make sure your player is updated... we'd hate to see your browser suffer a game-ending injury!

Might be my net connection, but it seems like some of the keystrokes fail to register... Sometimes it takes me about 6-8 tries to get the down start at all...

I remember enjoying some earlier version of this game.

It can be fun, but I'm experiencing weird performance issues, too. It takes a couple seconds for the play selection to actually scroll and change the play. Also, sometimes I think my pointer goes out of the area, so there's an imaginary blocking line in the middle of the screen. As a result, I cannot move the pointer low enough to complete the pass. I end up throwing away about 15% of my passes because I pull down to aim and I hit this limit, so I overthrow.

Fun for a little while, but not tight enough to try for the championship.

I remember this game from a few years back.

Something I wouldn't mind playing on my phone, I suppose.

The controls are so bad in this game.. For some reason, using wasd, you cannot break tackles, and also, throwing is nearly impossible... Sometimes, the mouse goes above the cursor thresholds in the game, and the throw goes wildly off target. Pretty frustrating to have terrible controls in what would be quite a fun game.

Thanks for the review and for your comments. Commentors, if you are experiencing difficulty with throwing lag and keyboard interaction, you may need to upgrade your shockwave player. In certain plugin versions in IE, IE's security features are in conflict with the controls, presenting unresponsive keys and lag. If you need help with this drop us a note. You also may want to try our site directly, or the upcoming facebook version which is in Beta. We don't have as many ads around the game, which helps the lag issue. Anytime you have a question or issues, don't hesitate to email us on the site and we'll do our best to get it figured out for you. Thanks for trying the game!
