Super Bowl Defender - Simply The Best Super Bowl Game

Super Bowl Defender - Simply The Best Super Bowl Game

Super bowl defender is the biggest football game that put you in the seats of a defender for a change. This game is so easy and fun to play and the features of this game are good graphics, various upgrades and bone crunching gameplay with awesome sound effects. 

Super bowl defender is a simulation game. The main objective of this game is to tackle your opponents seven times then the game gets over. However, this game will get very difficult pretty soon when you get ahead in the game. Super bowl defender has multiple features like multiple upgrades that can be bought between levels with the credit that you earn. 

In this game I advise you to buy the sharkpie energy drink with the help of that game money you earn. This drink will help you to boost speed and acceleration but this is effective for one time run only so you will have to buy again for each and every time your player will run. So, you should keep a lot of these in stock for a better play.

There is also some demerits of this game which is this game has a lot of bugs. On the levels that pit you against the multiple opponents allowing all but the opponent reach the time zone then tackling the last opponent before they reach at the end zone and thereafter will allow you to jump to the next level.

How to play

When the game has loaded then you have to click on the green continue icon to reach the main menu there after you will get 5 option of a defender and here you have to pick one  of them and after that, you have to press up for first level.

When you bring your opponent down successfully then you will earn credits and by using of credits you can buy many features as I told above in the starting of this post about sharkpie energy that energy will boost your player's running speed but you have to use it again and again for every time of running. 

If you don’t have money you can purchase the credits through “Defender store” and if you running back makes it to the end zone for a touchdown, you will lose your one chance.  Once all of your game lives are used  then if you want to play again in that case you have to restart this game from the beginning.

Controls


Here you will use the arrow keys for controlling your defender’s all movement. Whenever you get close to your opponent then here you have to press either z button or space bar to tackle your opponent and then you will win the game, if you could not win then you have to press down arrow key for restarting again and you will get only 7 chance to win and if you will lose you have to restart this game from the beginning.


If you want to play this game just visit this website and after visiting you have to press up key and thereafter your game will start and I have told you all the rules and instructions so go ahead and play this challenging game. I don't think you would have any problem now.

Super Bowl 2017 - Introduction

Super Bowl is one of the most watched sports event of the world and is highly popular all over the world for the 1 hour main game, halftime shows and high quality expensive commercials.

It is the annual championship game of the NFL (National Football League) and is the highest level of American professional national game. The game season begins in the late summer every year and the top two teams of AFC and NFC gets to play the iconic Super Bowl.

Super Bowl 2017 - Introduction


The NFL has trademarked the term Super Bowl and that's why the non-sponsoring corporation can not use this term. They have to use terms like Big Game etc. to talk in regard to the game.

The day on which Super Bowl is held is always a Sunday so the particular day is called as Super Bowl Sunday and it is considered by millions of Americans as unofficial American Holiday. But it is a Sunday so it will always be a holiday so I don't get this unofficial thing.

The Super Bowl 2016 was named Super Bowl 50 and for the Super Bowl 2017, roman numbers are coming back. That is the Super Bowl 2017 is officially named Super Bowl LI which will take place on February 5 , 2017 at NRG stadium in Houston, Texas. This is the third time the event is taking place in Houston.

The NRG stadium has maximum seating capacity of 71,795 viewers and it is difficult to grab those seat because the demand exceeds the supply by a really big margin.

The Super Bowl is one of the most watched event of the world and is the second most watched sporting event coming after only UEFA's Champions League final. The winner of Super Bowl gets the Lombardi Trophy which is named this in honor of NFL coach Vince Lombardi who is considered to be the one of the best coach of the game in all history.

A Little Background About Super Bowl

The game was created as a part of merger agreement between AFL (American Football League) and NFL (National Football League). NFL which was formed in 1920 was able to kill all the rival leagues for 40 years but then cam AFL and it forced NFL to merge with them.

They was able to force them for merger as AFL has captured a lot of market share in terms of players and fans. So, it would result in less profit for NFL. That's why in the year of 1966, before the season of American Football started, NFL and AFL signed a merger agreement which would come in action from the year 1970.

After the merger the name of each league was changed, the NFL, National Football League became Nation Football Conference and the AFL, American Football League became AFC, American Football Conference.

So the champion of each conference gets to play in the Super Bowl which is held on the first Sunday of February.

From the agreement, the name decided at first was AFL-NFL Championship game but later on someone from the official staff used Super Bowl and the media started using the term then. Although it didn't became popular at first but soon people got used to it and it became the official name of the game. Also, even the day on the game is played was also declared as Super Bowl Sunday.

Tickets

Super Bowl 2017 - Introduction


Many a tickets are booked for the two teams participating and also for the other NFL teams. The remaining tickets are available for others and that is also given through a random drawing. So, you need some luck to land a ticket for Super Bowl.
