We all love football, but not everyone can make it to be a pro-footballer and achieve Superbowl glory. Thanks to Return Man 4 you can relive the thrills of being a top football star on your laptop, tablet, or smart phone. It’s a completely free game made by ESPN, and who knows more about sporting thrills and spills for them? Unusually for this sort of game, you play the defensive rather than offensive player, but this makes it even more fun as you crunch everything in your path to stop the opposition reaching the end zone.
In Return Man 3 you play the one defensive lynchpin whose job it is to stop the opposition scoring a try. As the game progresses however, you’ll find that you get other team mates around you, so you can make your strategies more complex. Look out for the opponent carrying the ball. All you have to do is run towards him and tackle him before he can score a touch down. Sounds simple, huh? Think again, because there are lots of other offensive players trying to stop you getting to the enemy. If they catch you first you’ll have to shake and fight them off before you can resume your pursuit of the ball carrier. You’ll get five lives to score as many points as you can, and the challenge gets harder as you progress through the levels.
The controls of the game Return Man 4 are very straight forward, which is one of the factors that makes it such fun to play. Move your defensive man up and down the screen using the I and K keys, and move left and right using J and L; alternatively, you can use the arrow keys. The Space key is all important as that executes a diving tackle. Later on, if you do well, you’ll be able to unlock the special moves Swim [A], Shuck [S], and Bull Rush [D].
If you’ve played earlier versions of this game, then you’ll need no encouraging to try out the latest incarnation. Put simply, Return Man 4 has to be one of the best football games out there, and best of all it’s completely free. The graphics are great and the movement is fluid. You may find it a little difficult at first, but you’ll soon find that the controls become intuitive. You’ll find yourself coming back for more and more, especially as the difficulty level keeps on increasing. If you’re looking for the New England Patriots of the Flash game world, you’ve just found a game that delivers a true champion’s performance.
