As the name implies, the game is pared down to single contests of three NHL players plus one goalie per team, who are big head versions of their actual selves. Online gamers have nicknamed the game 'Blorp' as a shoutout to the sound effects heard within the game's menu. The game allows for multiplayer online and off-line play. The game is played on a 'first to...' basis rather than within a set time limit, meaning there can be a near-unlimited amount of periods per match. Powerups can be obtained which can give advantages to either team.
