Crunchball 3000 is a video game by British developer Ben Olding in which players take part in the titular futuristic sport. They can create and manage teams, play single or multi-player games with preset teams or edit teams.

Gameplay[edit]

Crunchball 3000 is a fictional futuristic sport; streamlined combination of basketball, soccer, rugby, American Football and ice hockey. The game is played on a court 182.88 metres long; each league game lasts 90 seconds (although single games can be set for longer time intervals). A team consists of 10 players, who are numbered 1-10. Higher numbers are more offensive players; the #1 player is always the goalkeeper, who remains in goal at all times to try to prevent the other team from scoring. Each team has a goal. The object of the game is to throw or run the ball into your opponent's goal.

Players are shown wearing heavy protective equipment. This is because defense is accomplished through tackles. One can perform either a light tackle, in which one pushes one's opponent in an attempt to knock him over, or a heavy tackle, in which a player, moving at high speed, strikes one's opponent with one's forearm. If a player is knocked over, he must release the ball. However, it is illegal to tackle any defensive player or any offensive player without the ball.

Players can pass the ball between one another underhand, or throw it overhand. If the ball reaches the edge of the court, it will ricochet off and reenter play. Players can catch any throw or pass that goes directly to them, however they will not always catch fast throws that pass near them.

The ball is dropped from the roof of the court into a central circle to start play and to resume play after a goal. Players cannot enter this small central circle until the ball is dropped. There is a half court line, but it serves no purpose involving the rules of the game.

There are a variety of formations which players can select, in which the variously numbered players have different roles. Formation choices include the fortress, the wall, the goal hang, the wide attack, and the 4-3-2. It is legal to change formation during play or stoppages after scores, but no computerized teams do so, and each computer team always uses the same formation.

Season[edit]

The game uses a promotion and relegation league system, in which at the end on the season the teams with the best records move on to the next division and wins the division. The season consists of you playing all of the teams in your division (a total of 7 games are played). There is also an expansion draft at the end of the season. There are 32 teams split between 4 divisions.

Reception[edit]

Kieron Gillen of Rock, Paper, Shotgun described the game as a streamlined version of Speedball 2, unfavourably comparing Crunchball 3000 to both Speedball 2 and the browser football game Kickabout League.[1]
