Ice Hockey © 1981 Activision
Ice hockey video game. The object of the game is to score more goals than your opponent in the three-minute time period.
Offense: The first thing to do is gain control of the puck, which you do by skating near it. When you've connected, you'll hear a "click
" and the puck will begin to move back and forth on your player's stick.
There are 32 shot angles. Your shot will go to the extreme left when the puck is at the left side of your player's stick; it will go to the extreme right when the puck is at the right side of your player's stick. All other shot angles occur when the puck is in between the two extremes. Players can only shoot the puck forward towards their opponent's goal.
Defense: When on defense, use your stick to knock the puck away, or body-check your opponent to slow his attack.
When you're defending your goal, it's important to cut down your opponent's shot angle, since you want to make it has tough as you can for him to get a clean shot at your net.
Passing the Puck: Ice Hockey is a team game, and you should practice passing from your goalie to your forward. You'll find it impossible to play championship-quality hockey if you don't learn how to move the puck effectively. You have to understand the shot angles to become a good passer.
