Hoccer is an arcade videogame released by Eastern Micro Electronics in 1983. The game shows futuristic interpretation of ice hockey[1] cross-overed with some elements of the game of soccer.[2]

The player controls Andrew, the one man team. Ord and Clee are robots whose goal is to destroy him any way they can (by driving him against the boards, into a spinner, or by hitting him with a supercharged ball). Knock out Ord and Clee with your ball or by hitting them against the sides. Points are also scored by hitting the goal and hitting the targets on the sides.
