Return Man Wideout is an easy-to-play and fun game.  Your primary goal is simple; catch touchdown passes.  When you first line up, you are given a route to run; these can be posts, hitches, drags, or fades.  Your job is to make your way to the yellow circle where the ball will be thrown.  This task is not an easy one, however.  You have defenders who you have to avoid and beat to the ball.  The best way to run the proper route is to follow the conveniently placed green dots that will show you exactly how you need to run the route.  Once you are to the proper location, be ready to catch the ball!  If you are unable to catch the pass, do not worry; you have five attempts per play through.
