Crunchball 3000 is an exciting sports based game similar to American football. The objective is simple, to touch the ball down on your opponents touchline, and prevent your opponents from touching it down on yours. Succeed with this, and you will go far.

The controls may take several games to become familiar with, it uses the regular WASD keys, but it also has GHJP keys that require regular use. The game play itself isn’t too fast paced so it’s relatively easy to grasp and before long you will not need to look at the keyboard.

There are several types of games available to you;

Career:

Here you can take control of a team for many seasons, improve your players and customize the kit. You may spend money that you have earned from previous games in order to pay for training to improve certain aspects of your players, such as strength. You can even bribe your opponents to play ‘under’ their average standard, or even buy enhancement drugs. All these are available to aid you in winning the Crunchball League, whether it is legitimate or not.

Single Player Match:

Here you can participate in a game straight away, simply select your team and the match will begin straight away.

2 Player Match:

Here you play with the same keyboard using preset teams so there aren’t any disadvantages. It can become slightly tricky as the keyboard becomes crowded and shooting downwards can be awkward.

If at any time you wish to view your progress, then you may view the statistics tab on the main menu, here you can view your weaknesses and you win/loss ratio.

Crunchball 3000 is a very competitive game, against harder teams you may lose several times and full attention is needed. Also, you must pay attention to the current formation, changing it to suite what the current score is. For example if you are winning then you may want to go defensive, if you are losing only marginally then you are going to want to use an attacking formation. This is important because you may only control one person at a time, so this decides where the rest of the team position themselves.

In conclusion, Crunchball 3000 is a fun game and can provide many hours of enjoyment. It also comes with a two player option to compare your skills with your friends, sparking the competitive streak inside you.
