How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

Product Description
LED Football
LED Football
An exact replica of the original

A retro football flashback is now available on your Android device. Remember the good ol' days when you could play the 1978 Mattel electronic football game on a handheld? You probably thought you were at the height of technology. Now, you can get all nostalgic and play a simulated version of your favorite, original football video game on a more sophisticated handheld.

Credit Where Credit Is Due

Enjoy the simple and entertaining gameplay that started it all using the latest micro-electonics. You play as the ball carrier, and the computer is on defense. The interface was designed as an exact replica as the original. If you knew what you were doing then, you'll know exactly how to play now. Use the buttons to cut back, avoid tacklers, and run for daylight! Score a touchdown and hear the victory sound.

It's just like you remember, with the competition of real football, the skill of real play, and the entertaining challenge that made it a classic in the first place.

Tip: Sound is controlled by your Android device's sound. Make sure to turn your phone off vibrate mode and with reasonable volume to hear the sound. Turn vibrate on if you don't want to hear the sound

This is an emulation game of the late 70s early 80s. Like in the football game the objective is to move the ball 10 yards at least in a total of 4 downs. The game goes on until you run out of downs our score a touchdown. If the computer stops you, she will get 7 points. The game end when the timer runs out. The one with most points at the end wins the game. The strategy is to patiently wait on one spot until the defenses open a hole that you can exploit and start running through left to right and avoid being tackled by the defenders. Except for the 9v battery and the plastic buttons this is the way I remember this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect copy May 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a perfect copy of the original 1978 Mattel Football. It's nice to see a fully licensed version instead of a knockoff. The same tricks seem to work. Also has simulated wear on buttons if that's what you'd like. Surprised and happy to see this as the FAOTD.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can dig it May 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
I'm not old enough to have played a physical LED Football handheld (other than the GameBoy, the major LCD handhelds of my time were the old Tiger Electronics or R-Zone units), but I installed out of curiousity. I obviously can't vouch for its authenticity, but I can say that the game is simple and entertaining. Controls are responsive, and the game runs well on my low end device. The game is fairly straightforward (get your QB from one end of the field to the other, dodging opposing players), but it still requires a little strategic thought.

Simulated button wear and battery drain are pretty cool features that show that the developer strove to recreate the original handheld experience as closely as possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Just like the real thing! May 5, 2012

... And I know what I'm talking about because I have 2 of the actual original mattel versions. This is a perfect simulation of that original handheld game. Now if they would just make the coleco one. I would be super happy because I liked that one better back in the day. How anyone could rate this below 5 stars is beyond me as this is a near perfect simulation of the original.

5.0 out of 5 stars waiting for this simple app! May 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
I've been wondering who would take this trip down memory lane. Great job with the switches, battery changes and button wear! Just wish the directional buttons could flip sides so it would be more true to the original handheld...

3.0 out of 5 stars great but has response issues May 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
Overall the game play is spot on. Brings me back to my old handheld version. The response is spotty however. I can't rattle through like I used to maybe because i'ts harder to tap the sceen without a physical button to press. SGS II

4.0 out of 5 stars So close to the original - but not quite January 16, 2014
By JM
Verified Purchase
Love this game, controls are excellent - better than the actual handheld game which had hard buttons to press ! But, this game has some flaws that need fixed:

1. yard indicator - once you are at the 50, instead of counting down, it keeps going until you reach 100/touchdown. Original game showed the yards going down.
2. Time - when the clock strikes 0, game immediately stops, even mid-play. The orginal you could keep running until you were tackled - this is very disappointing as I have memories of scoring long TD's with no time on the clock.

3. The run button is on the wrong side, they apparently slid it over to the left so they could fit the score/time/yard info in the middle, which the actual handheld game doesn't have there, you have to press buttons to see the time/score.

But, glad this app is here, still great fun to play. Now where are the others ? Mattel Basketball, Baseball, Coleco's Electronic Quarterback ????!!!
