Mattel's 1977 handheld electronic football game proved a surprise hit that spawned numerous imitators. This replica (now with the word "classic" in the title) is a fun, inexpensive shot of nostalgia, though its design will be lost on new pigskin fans because this isn't so much football, but a football-like exercise. The object of the game is to control a lone running back around LED defenders--little red dashes, to be precise--to get first downs on the way to a touchdown, or at least a field goal. Players anticipate the moves of the computer-controlled defenders to slide through gaps without being tackled. It plays as much like Space Invaders as football, but that simplicity makes it hypnotically fun. The same cheesy beeps trumpet tackles, kickoffs, and touchdowns. The game runs on two AA batteries (not included) and measures 6 by 8.9cm by 2.5cm , which should easily fit in any pair of hands. --Porter B. Hall
