Some games create an instant urge to stop the encroaching or challenging entities in question, and Battle Bowl certainly is one of them. After selecting a color for your boxer and starting the game you are immediately confronted with four differently colored spin boxers ( yours and three others ) that descend from shoots spaced equidistantly around the perimeter of a rotating bowl, then drop into the bowl with a swirling fury as gravity and collision making the targeting of your opponents in this free-for-all a real workout.
These militant little swirling pugilists are no easy target as you adjust your dual shooter controller by Range, Tilt, and Pivot through a series of 50 shots in an effort to affect the Spin Power and Power Fist levels. If you can send the opposing colors gyrating into motionlessness, or outright blast them out of the bowl, then your boxer will prevail. Not very complicated, but a very engaging procedure that requires timing and measured anticipation.
