To tell the truth, this cart is an excellent effort to bring to the NES a game that would be more at home in a 16-bit system. The game concept is good, and a 16-bit version can't be far behind. Still, it lacks the control and visual stimulation necessary to become a powerful cart.

It's not football, hockey, rugby or soccer but it is new and interesting as it seems to be a combination of all of them. Somewhat difficult to keep track of what is going on at times but this is more due to the NES than the game. Not bad as I was getting tired of all the 'normal' sports.

This game wants to be Cyberball but it doesn't come off that way. It tries so hard to come off as a futuristic sporting event, but it seems to be lacking in new features. As it is, the game is just air hockey with robots. The fast action helps it along and keeps you moving but it needs more.

Klash ball is an exciting, fast-moving game that can sometimes be extremely difficult to control. It can be hard to tell where the ball is headed, and the computer is very proficient at blowing up your players and scoring. Still, it's a challenge to true sports fans everywhere.

The future in your face.

SOFEL takes life simulation into the future with the release of our newest game, KlashBall, for the Nintendo Entertainment System. In a stadium hundreds of years from now, techno-gladiators do battle, combining contact with speed and finesse. Two five-man teams go for it, each fighting to deliver a three-kilo metallic energy sphere into the opponent's goal zone.

It isn't pretty.

Teams challenge each other in a surreal arena that utilizes devices such as a warp tunnel, ball launcher, and magnetically charged bounce domes.

The gnarliest teams in the world.

KlashBall features a complete league system. There are eleven rowdy teams, each with unique skills, strengths and weaknesses. After each match the central computer analyzes the outcome and records the stats. Play against the computer or klash it out with a friend.

It might be too real.

If you're ready, take a trip into the 23rd century with KlashBall. A game so real, it's in your face!

Get your feet wet.

Navigate through the ocean depths with the original aquatic homeboy, Fish Dude. The object is to eat as many little fish as possible so Fish Dude can grow to fight off his hungry enemies. Big fish, seagulls and a floating feline are all after him. Luckily Fish Dude has some cool pals like Octo dude to help him out of tricky situations. Come on, get you feet wet and explore the high seas with Fish Dude!

Klash Ball is a futuristic sport that takes speed and physical skill. Play takes place in a futuristic rink where you man a team of techno-gladiators who battle it out over a metallic sphere.

Toss a five pound steel ball into an arena, add some half-crazed hulksters who don't understand the meaning of words like "fair", "bribe", or "pain", and you've got yourself a rock 'em sock 'em game of Klash Ball. A blend of soccer, basketball, and hockey, this high contact sport (for one or two players) puts two, five-member teams on a metal playing surface where they attempt to score goals with a steel ball. You can coordinate your own passes, use the Ball Launcher, make jumping catches, or even legally bribe the refs to help your men put some double digits on the score board. But, the real trick is to execute those plays while trying to avoid bone-crushing, sliding tackles from your opponents!

The latest futuristic sports game for Nintendo sends you crashing into the 23rd century for a round of Klash-Ball. Based on the "ancient" sports of soccer, basketball, and hockey, Klashball pits two squads of armored gladiators against each other in an arena filled with space-age twists.

Each team consists of four players and a goalie, and you can play against the computer or a human opponent. Either way, you'll need all the speed and strength you can muster to send the three-kilo energy sphere (or, in primitive terms, a 3.6-pound ball) into your opponent's goal-a four-foot hole in the back wall of the arena. The winner is the team that scores the most goals in a limited time period. When playing alone, you can choose between Knockout and League play. In the Knockout game, two out of three victories wins the match. If you defeat ten opponents in a row, you're the KlashBall champion.

In League play, your team goes a single round against one opponent, once a week, for an entire season. Rankings are based on the number of matches won and lost. If you finish in the top three, a trip to the Power Bowl finals determines the season champion. For two-player games, you can choose between single-round matches or two-out-of-three Knockout competitions.

Whenever your team wins a round, you get a bonus coin for each goal you scored during the game. You can use the coins to improve your team's performance and chances of winning. Two power coins will extend the time of a round, and eight coins are good for an extra goal. Warp tunnels and bounce domes can help you win games, too. Warp tunnels are located at the midpoint of each side wall. Use them to pass the ball to teammates on the other side of the arena. Bounce domes rise above the floor and emit electrical energy that repels the ball, sending it bouncing off the walls.

No matter which way the ball bounces, KlashBall is an entertaining addition to any game collection. Crisp graphics and clear ball movement make it easy to play, and it's a nice change from the "primitive" sports available in the 20th century.
