Apparently this game was never released until someone recently took it upon themselves to make a limited number of copies.  If you have the ECS component, you should pursue this.  As a football fan I think it's great.

Love any Intellivision reviews...especially for lost/homebrew games.

This looks sweet!  Like your review for World Series Major League Baseball I am glad you took this one on too.  I'll likely never have an ECS to play these games on but enjoy reading about them. The link was appreciated as well Critic.

I think Super NFL would be better than Super Pro if it were a little polished.  The fact that it's hard to tell when the ball is turned over is a real problem.

Still, I think I prefer Super NFL.

I suspect the game was in its final stages of development when the video game crash of '83 killed the ECS (and the Intellivision for that matter).

Huh -- I hadn't heard of this game getting released.  Looks pretty good....  Thanks for reviewing it!

Off topic, but if anyone reading this missed the first Wii-U preorders, the news out today is that Walmart is opening up in-store Wii-U preorders this Sunday (the 14th).  Since my son is a "big N" fan, you know where I'll be....

 @ Croc reportedly there has been a fire at one of the plants making the wii u so if you want one they might be in short supply...
alternatively this could be a ploy by nintendo to make sure they sell loads of consoles....

Somebody was thoughtful enough to create a sheet with the standard play formations for this game!

I have said it before - a sincere THANK YOU to these unselfish folks who take the time to create such things and share them with the video gaming world.  The map of the hidden level for Pitfall II for the 5200 and the Superman diagram for the VCS immediately come to mind.
