The Big Hit is an American football arcade game that focuses on the defensive aspect of the game. The object of the game is to tackle the opponents as quick as possible, before they reach your end zone. The faster you tackle the opponents, the higher your score will be. Throughout the 6 levels of gameplay you'll go from a boot polisher to a legend of league, if you're good enough! With each level you get to use a new defensive player, who's skill level will be higher. However, the opponents also become increasingly skilled with each new round.
