Description from the USA back cover:
In a futuristic sports arena, you're running upfield, free and clear, when WHAM! your opponent slams into you with a bone-jarring tackle knocking the ball loose. On defense, switch control to your nearest player, then devastate the ball handler with a lightning spin kick, forcing another fumble. Now pick it up and sprint upfield. Then cut back to evade tacklers, fake the goalie, and bust a through for a touchdown!
This is Powerball the sports game where teams of armored athletes hammer each other in a furious slugfest. Powerball combines skills from martial arts, football, and rugby. Each of the twelve teams boasts a unique level of skills. Whether you compete against the computer or a friend, you'll thrill to the action of Powerball, the smash sport of the future.
