About This Game


Sunday Rivals channels the unique spirit and fun of early 90's sports games and supercharges it into an easy to pickup, high impact, arcade football adrenaline shot!


On the field, gameplay is tuned to be snappy and fun, rewarding quick thinking and creative players with dazzling open field jukes and bone crushing hits. Simplified rules and streamlined playbooks make it easy for players of all skill levels to jump in and immediately enjoy playing football video games again!


You have complete control over your custom leagues! Pick stadium colors, grass types, and endzone text. Define coaching strategies and choose which playbooks teams will run. Perfect your rosters with individual player ratings and a slew of appearance options, down to what kind of socks a player wears!


Season Mode lets you take the reins of a single team and guide them through the rigors of a full year, featuring sortable player stats, league leaders, weekly awards, custom lineups, and the ability to play, sim, or coach any game on the schedule. With support for custom league and schedule options, you'll have total control to create an unforgettable season!


Experience the beauty and fury of mother nature with fully dynamic weather and time of day! Pouring rain turns grass to mud, howling winds blow kicks into uprights, and thickening fog limits visibility as day turns into night. When the mercury plunges, green fields transform into winter wonderlands, leaving players to trudge their way through white-out snow conditions. Ice bowl, anyone?


Lead your favorite team through a 4 game, single-elimination tournament while racking up points using a fantasy football-style scoring system. As you battle increasingly challenging opponents towards victory, your stats are tracked and saved, along with 8 additional scoring bonuses tuned for maximum performance! After the game, check to see if the fruits of your hard fought victory are good enough to be enshrined in the record books and celebrated for years to come.
