As the phrase “return man” infers, the main objective is to receive the kickoff and return the ball to the end zone without being tackled. You are given four lives per game, and you can add lives with consecutive touchdown streaks.
In order to receive the ball, move the returner to the yellow circle. Once you catch the ball, move the returner using whichever set of controls you prefer: basic (I, J, K, L) or alternate (arrow keys). Avoid being tackled, and watch out for the kicker! He is faster than the other defenders, and while he can not tackle you singlehandedly, he will drag you, slowing you down until the other defenders arrive to make the tackle. Along the way, there are some “energy boosts” available in returnman3 (they look like green circles with a yellow lightning bolt) that can give you a temporary speed boost.
There are three levels (called “weeks” in this game) and five stages in each week. Week 1 is called “Opening Week”, Week 2 is called “Down and Dirty”, and Week 3 is called “Hold on Tight”. Unlock the next stage by beating the previous one. Of course, each stage and level are a little bit tougher than the last, but you do receive more energy boosts and extra controls to help you out.
