Retro Bowl is a great looking new Tecmo Bowl-esque American Football game that aims to deliver a retro arcade take on America’s favorite sport.
Currently in development by New Star Games (creators of the excellent Sensible Soccer-like New Star Soccer), Retro Bowl is a fantastic looking homage to the classic 80’s/90’s era of NFL games. As it doesn’t have EA’s deep pockets, Retro Bowl won’t have an official NFL licence or real players – instead the teams will just have City names and made up characters (which is no big deal really).
The gameplay looks easily accessible and arcadey, with touch based controls allowing you to hurl the ball to receivers by tapping on them. It’ll also feature light management elements, with you able to trade players and having to keep within the salary cap.
They simply don’t make American Football games like Retro Bowl anymore, so it’s great to see a return of the 80s styled retro arcade fun. Sign up now to lace up your cleats for the Beta!
