Return Man 5 is also known as Linebacker, it is modification of the third game and it has some interesting updates and features in it. In this game you will have to face enemy’s team all alone, for example in the first stage you will see one player which is holding the ball and four of his teammates, other four players will do anything to protect ball holder and help him to score touch down, you will have to be very carefully in order to avoid getting caught and at the same time you will have to catch quarterback yourself.
This version of the game will test your defensive abilities in football; it will give you opportunity to show off your skills and strategies as well. Good defense is one of the most important things when we are talking about American football.
In order to tackle running back you will have to first dodge blockers, as soon as you will make sure that your way is clear, run as fast as you can towards quarterback and stop him. You don’t really have to hurry here; unnecessary risk will only harm you, just pay attention to the enemy’s team and their movement, find their weak spots and use them in your advantage.
Sometimes, best defense is attack, if you have enough time you can take down couple of blockers and it will clear your way, just make sure that you will have enough time to tackle running back.
You also have three special moves; these abilities will be extremely helpful in higher levels of the game, in order to be able to use these moves you will have to unlock them first (by stopping running back). Details about how can you use these special moves will be explained later on in “controls of the game” section.
Return Man 5 is pretty decent football game and it is very popular among gamers of all ages. Atmosphere in the game is very realistic; all those sound effects fit game perfectly well. You may say that graphics of the game are low quality, but to be honest this type of the game doesn’t really need some crazy graphics and effects, it is good enough already and physics of the game are awesome as well.
With that being said I just want to list controls of the game, you can find all important functions and buttons below in the screenshot.
So guys, hope you will enjoy this flash game and stop running back!
