nhl 96 game

Put your eyes on the puck and ready yourself for some intense ice hockey competition! Fight in fast-paced matches in NHL 96! The game isn’t called NICE-hockey for a reason, and you will clearly see why!

NHL 96 is an ice-hockey video game released back in 1995 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). The game features direct improvements from the previous title and includes new game mechanics such as double minor penalties. Player fighting was also included in this game and became a major feature with three new animations for a “fight ending”. Put the enemy player on the ice floor as he squirms in pain, and remove the enemy’s best player to secure your victory! Use a variety of underhanded strategies if you really want, or prevent the enemy team from doing the same strategies against you.
