The game is without a doubt one of my favorite apps i’ve ever downloaded and i continue to love playing this game. Although, i think they should update it with a feature where you can see opposing teams roster, coaches, facility ratings, etc. They should also do something where you can simulate different choices during the game like getting an injured player halfway through the game so you have to make a decision on whether or not to let them keep playing type of scenario. I also think that letting you choose your defense set up or different defensive plays would be cool. I say that because of the fact the game only uses a 4-3 defense and i’d love to see my team with a 3-4 defense and occasionally a 5-1 defense on the goal line maybe. I think it would also be neat if they added the option of drafting or getting a punter from the free agents list where the better the punter would also help with a better, more dominant performance from the defense cause the offense would have to gain more yards. The option to not only customize your team on premium but also your stadium, field, and stands would be really neat. Getting the option to make an avatar for yourself as the head coach would be really cool or the option to edit parts of your story leading up to becoming head coach of that team that you chose or got selected to. I think these would be really cool in a future update to the game or even a possible sequel. Nonetheless 5 star game without a doubt!!

Best sports game on App Store!
This game is incredible, I love everything about it, but that doesn’t mean there’s room for improvement. One thing I wish you would do is add it so you can see a opposing teams roster, coaches, etc. along with during gameplay you can see your opponents Star players on defense, like how you do with the users players. I’m pretty sure other people have said this in their reviews too, but it would be awesome if we were able to start in college or choose to stay in college, I don’t care if I have to pay for that feature, I would get it either way. Another one is of course the option to play on defense as well. I think it would be cool if you added a simulation feature to it, so you can sim games you don’t wanna play, because sometimes after like 5 full seasons of games, you just kinda get tired of playing and wish you could progress your career and franchise without actually having to play the football game. Also I think it should be easier to get Coach Credits, sometimes it’s really hard to resign guys because you don’t have enough cap room, but the only way to make more is to either cut someone or pay Coach Credits to expand the cap, but the expansion cap is mega expensive and the only way to get it without paying real money for more Coach Credits is to farm them for like 10 season. I think if you add this stuff this game becomes App games hall of fame worthy. Keep updating and make this game even better!

Hope bug fixes are coming soon
This is without a doubt the best sports game you can play on your phone. Full stop, no competitor. I was really excited to see the kick return update last week, but I’m really hoping we get a bug fix update soon that can return the rushing game back to normal. It’s almost unplayable right now taking a 3 yard loss one of out of every five times you try to run the ball. There’s no way I’m the first person to bring it up so I hope it’s coming soon! I’d love to see RetroBowl MVPs and maybe halftime stat breakdowns in future updates. Would also love to see a 3rd interchangeable receiver added as well like you can with TEs. I’ve seen other people say they’d like to see the other players and star players league wide and I totally agree. Would make the trade/free agency market more fun. Would love to have league wide stat boards as well to see who is leading in different categories and make record stats league wide and not just for the franchise. Hope updates like that roll around eventually, I would totally pay for any upgrades that come along. I enjoy the soccer game as well but it isn’t quite as addicting. Would love to see other sports as well, basketball would probably be pretty tough in this format but I bet baseball would be awesome. Super Baseball Simulator 1.000 for SNES would probably be sort of the model for that I’m guessing. Mostly came to plead that the rushing gets fixed but rambled on. Keep up the great work.

This game is good period. Without a doubt the second you download this game, your hooked. Improving your team with pixels from way back when, that’s amazing! First thing I would suggest is being able to play Defence. I just think it would be so cool if you were able to play with the your opponents but on Defence. That would also provide room for multiplayer. I think it would also be cool if you could play with a friend, play by play. Second thing I would suggest is logos for teams. That would be put in the middle of the field of course and where you keep the score. Third thing is Being able to make longer games. With Defence and longer games, this would Improve your game better than it already is. Fourth. I think people have already asked this a billion times, but it’s just a good idea. You should be able to have a mode that allows you to have real players, current and past. Such as Tom Brady or Brett Favre. Fifth, and last. Simulator mode. Kinda like a idle game where you upgrade things but better. I think it would be cool to be able to build and improve stadiums and be able to see what your doing, and make restaurants inside your stadium. This is one of the random ideas, but I’m just trying to provide suggestions for future updates. Thank you for making such a fun game, have a wonderful day-month-year and I hope you put my thoughts into consideration. Thank you again. - Sincerely, DogeMan 😏

Best app for passing time
Games are short and easy for premium team customization is great I literally made a whole college roster with it gameplay is amazing the graphic are simple but amazing passing and running are great but things they could improve on is that there should be a option to put one of your players on kick returns cause i don’t like how slow the normal ones are and I feel like they could improve on dynamic difficulty I wanna feel the struggle against a 8-2 team and not the score being 60-20 and then the next week where a 1-8 team drops 55 on me and I barely get by but that’s pretty much my problems with the second one I can just easily change the difficulty to extreme I like the role of the upgrade system with the franchise like the stadium where if you lose with a 1 stadium your fan base basically goes to 100 to 50 from 1 lose to a 10 stadium where the fan base is barely affected like the role coordinators play and the attributes play but to finally cut this off my take away is you can pick up this game do the bare minimum by just playing games or get into the more complicated side with managing cap , coordinators, facilities, contracts , players morale or condition and trying to break records and you can get caught up in it I’ve never been more invested in a franchise centered sports game since like 2014 with ncaa 14 and if this game to me is better than madden 23 as a whole that says a lot

Fun retro style game. Better with the premium version
This game is very fun. I’m on yr 13 on my save slot. I paid the dollar for the premium version and it’s definitely worth it plus the 25 CC. I am dedicated to keeping my QB on the team. He is 4 1/2 stars with MAXED arm strength. He has 3 rings and 3 MVPs. I like the option to switch from team to team. One thing that could change is when you switch back to one of your teams after one year I wish you could still have some of your former players. The good thing about the premium is that you can tag them for your HOF so you can remember your former players and see how many rings and awards they had as well as there stats. This game is worth the download and it barely takes any space up which is a plus. I strongly recommend getting the premium version for the dollar just to get started. One good strategy that I used to get started after a while of playing is once you start trade your players that are not so good for draft picks so you can pick younger better players. I also like being able to have 5 save slots at the same time. It’s good also because you don’t have to spend money to win like most other games and it has no annoying pop ups of new offers. It has a very simple shop where you can get CC coaching credits, as well as websites to browse at shirts and hoodies. Over all this is a 100/5 stars worth the download.

What I think
I feel like overall the game is really good I feel like #2 football game in the App Store obviously behind madden but I prefer this game I like everything is has to offer with hopes there’s more updates in the future I feel like the game is fun but it’s missing something to me I feel like star players make a difference but you can’t really do any moves I feel like qb scramble could definitely get more interesting I don’t like how you can’t play defense it’s almost pointless to get defensive players to me overall I feel like gameplay is my biggest problem I’m waiting for some massive update or something where this game will dominate the app market The off-season is also very cool wish there was more to the draft process and I wish free agency was a thing I think the coaches kinda make a difference maybe let’s higher rank coaches have access to different plays or something to make it feel like they actually matter outside a buff or upgrade In conclusion I feel like this is a really fun game and I will continue to play it hopefully this game becomes more of a complete football but as of now still think this a good quality game Also I feel like trading is fun I wish you could trade your own picks for other teams players or picks and make the game more competitive I get it’s a fast paced game but I wouldn’t mind it slowing down for better quality

Really good game
Overall 10/10 game but a couple changes could be made to make it even better. First I think the trading system could be expanded upon. The option to trade players for players or picks for players would be cool. Also a trading block and ability to trade multiple players/picks would be great. Another thing I would change is the option for a legit Hail Mary. Most NFL quarterbacks can throw at least 50 - 60 even yards even at the end of a game but the max a quarterback can throw in this game is like 30 or 35. Maybe near the end of a half or game the option to call a Hail Mary where your quarterbacks arm strength and receivers speed increases significantly but it is still a very difficult play would be awesome. Another problem is with the simulation mode. I think simulating games was a great addition to the game but the players stats are clearly completely off of what happened in the game. For example, sometimes a kicker will miss twice in a game but afterwards it will show he was perfect or you will score 4 touchdowns but it will show the quarterback threw four himself and the runningback scored one rushing. Also, the new retrobowl mvp award has some issues. It keeps getting awarded to the players who barely made an impact. My tight end had 3 catches for 29 yards and won it over everyone else. Other than these things the game is pretty much perfect.

Nostalgic App that takes you back to the best of an era
I don’t ever write reviews but I love this game! Definitely one that brings back memories of my youth and has the same great action! Love the player skill development and free agency and draft features. Coordinator hires and development with traits adds to the game play as well. Retro feel but with dynamic features that app developer put a twist on. Look forward to more updated versions that could possibly add more roster slots so you have younger players on deck to build up skill-wise while veteran players get ready to retire. Would love to review other team player stats and also a leaderboard with comparable stats for each position. More realistic trade scenarios where trades are proposed to your team as well as you can go in and request a player trade from opposing teams. The app should have the ability to track or realistically keep stats on previously developed players from old teams if you change teams and if they also get traded once your heading a new team. That would give you the ability to pursue and trade or sign previous players you’ve had on your roster and have had success with before. Also lastly, developers can surely bump up the difficulty in the AI just a few notches for more challenging seasons. Looking forward to more app developments and updates!

Great game but needs some fixing
Retro bowl is a great game don’t get me wrong, its just frustrating. First of all you should have the option to be one of the players meaning that you should be able to have a qb franchise or a wr franchise and not only be able to be a coach. Also you should be able to request a trade or demand a release from the team your on because I’ve been on the chargers for 6 years and I signed a 4 year contract. Also the other teams offense is a 1 star rating and I have a 5 star rating defense and the other team scores a touchdown every possession, I literally mean every possession. Also if one of my players are on a fast break the defense catches up every time. How does the defense not run out of energy yet my players have max stamina and run out of energy in like 3 seconds. Another thing, when you throw the ball it’s almost like it’s an interception every single throw. If I throw it 3 yards or less near a defender then it’s going to be an interception. If you throw it anywhere near a defender it will be an interception. Even if there not that close to it but there in diving range they still intercept it without diving, it’s annoying how I have to keep allowing points and changing possession. Also players that don’t have a name and a star above there head are just flat out useless they gain 3 yards in 5 seconds, like what’s the point. Other than that it’s a really good game and I really recommend it.

Some more depth elements
1. The fans seem to shift to much, for example they could love you then you lose one game and you lose like 20% fan interest. So that needs to be bumped down a little. 2. Add more control over play calling. So you could add a system for offense where every play you have three options to pick from. Then on defense you could make it so you have a pass defense play, run defense play, and balanced play (run and pass). And to decide which one to choose it gives you a percentage chance of which play the offense would call. So if it’s 60/40, 60 for pass, 40 for run. You have a better chance of getting a pick with a pass play but if they call a run play they will get a big gain. Since it’s 60/40. Then same thing with other percentages. 3. Add an option for playbooks. This, would play into hiring coordinators like some scan have a aggressive defense some have pass heavy offense and etc. 4. Finally make it an option for you to start off coaching in college so you can stay there if you don’t want to be in the nfl. Maybe if you do well get a chance in the nfl, if you do poorly you get moved down to a lower conference team like from sec to sun belt or you could just go to a less known college. Also please make these free because I believe these would make this game a five star app.

Best Game Ever
I have been playing retro bowl for 10 Seasons and it’s great. But I wish something's could change. First of all I wish you could play defense. It’s really annoying because with a low star defense the opponent will score almost every time. I wish you could change that. Secondly I wish you could tag people to the hall of fame for free. I like the game because there are intense season ending playoff games like in the retro bowl I lost 35-23 then the next season I beat the same ream 22-10. I also like the morale idea because it’s hard to keep your players morale up and it really adds challenge to it. I also like after a game it says like Jamel Nieman was seen shaking hands with the president then it gives you more fans. I like that it is 8 bit and you have to keep your fans up. You get coaching credits every game I like. Another reason why I love retro bowl is you can’t upgrade every player to five stars like other football games every player has a certain potential that is their best. Finally, I like you can get coaching credits and that you can pick up free agents, draft players, coach a new team, but it makes it hard to pick up new players because of the cap room. But I think you shouldn’t have to pay the coins and the cap room for a drafted player or a free agent. I also like how you can get new coaches.

Amazing Game, Top Tier, just a few suggestions
This is one of the best mobile games I have ever played. Love the customization, you get to edit the player names, and every team’s name jerseys and location. Love the way the draft works and free agency, you can easily improve your team and rebuild your team with draft picks. Even the gameplay is great, it’s simple but also need skill in order to win. So this is already a great game, but I have some suggestions that would make it even better. I wish you could play defense instead of it just simulating the defensive possessions. And I think kickoffs and punts should be playable too. You could introduce the punter position, or just have the kicker do the punting too. Hope there are plans to add these in the future. Also, I think the star players should be league wide, not just your own team, so everyone would have stats on every team. This probably would take a lot of work, but I think it would definitely be worth it. You could see how the stats of your players compare to those around the league. And this would also open trading your picks for players on your own, instead of hoping a team offers you a player for a pick. Also I hope you guys introduce other games like this in the future, like for other sports, like baseball. Retro Series (World Series)

Better then most Madden Franchises
This is one of the best game for me on my iPad. The graphics are good, I like them and I’m a young person. Also a very good thing in this is the team morale. I love it because it adds some more depth into the gameplay and almost gives it a storyline to follow. The player ratings are also a good way to tell if a player is good or not. In the draft, that has helped me exceptionally by finding players that upgrade the positions I need and to fill gaps in the team play. That also leads me to another topic; the draft. I love how it only has 3 picks and how simple it and easy it is to make picks and find players to help the challenge of building a dynasty. I also love that after around 2 seasons you can change teams. It helps me decide wether to help try juice up another team or stay with my dynasty. Trading is also a really cool thing in this game, because sometimes the computer comes up to me to offer a trade. It can be for my players and draft picks or theirs, but I can also trade my own players. Sometimes that’s what I do to make a new team and save file challenging. Overall, one of the best games in the App Store to me, best football app by a big margin, and overall a very exciting and fun game to play. I hope if your reading this, please give it a shot, you will NOT REGRET IT!

College version!
Love this game, have played 30 seasons mobile with Jacksonville then S.F before downloading switch and getting premium or whatever the paid version is. First thing I did on my switch version is take 8 hours to convert all the teams to College teams. One division being 2025 SEC, then a collection of my top 16 personal favorite non SEC teams. It runs great and is something I can always load up and enjoy. The mobile version is just as good as the console, and is a must play. K would love to see defense added, but I fear that there’s too much to change and it could ruin the game. Defense is much harder to simulate manually. It requires much more work on computers as well. If defense is added, I feel online multiplayer is a must have as well. Being able to play against each other instead of computers, just like Techmobowl but with modern fixes is a dream of mine. Finally College football being added would be incredible, maybe just redevelopment would be good, making a whole app. Different rules that separate college from pro, most stark being OT rules would benefit from not having to jump around. All In all this game is incredible, and I’m so glad it exists. Btw For My college game, I did 6 years with Ole Miss, then switched to Tennessee Vols. Die hard Vols fan! GBO

Love it but wish there could be more things
I love the game but it just feels the same thing every single time you play. Ok so I rated this game based of of playing and I have played this game for like 2 or 3 years and there is nothing new like when can you add challenge flags or even flags in general plus why must the game never have any cool stuff like when will cometary be a thing we’ll never mind anyway why can’t there be a my career mode like why must this game be the same and I play on extreme and I’m still getting a perfect season like I have went up against New England 10 times so far in the nfl and please add an extra do you want to trade the player and I feel like the trade button doesn’t give you a trade and I feel like if there is a player you put in the hall of fame then you should be able to sine them but there contracts are more expensive plus I feel like if you have more than 20 rings I feel like your character gets like bonas cc like you could get 100 rings and nothing would happen plus I hate how character’s contracts go up every time there contracts are ending like I feel like they should ad a button that is 50/50 of lowering the price please add some of these changes plus I bout the expansion to you make my roster bigger and change the teams color and that stuff but It didn’t work so I just lost money so please just give me the expansion I paid for it😡😡😑😑

Actually better than madden
This game is amazing and one of my favorite sports games I’ve ever played. It’s so simple yet so much fun. I’ve been playing this game a ton and on one of my seasons I’m actually on year 39 which is insane. There are obviously things I wish the game had like stats of other teams and their players to see how they’re doing as well. I think my biggest problem with the game is the way defense works though. I have 11 defensive players on my one franchise because I wanted to see how it would work and it’s been fun but can be frustrating when I make maybe 1 mistake on offense and my defense can’t get a stop for some reason even though they’re all star players of 4 and up. It feels like even though I add more defensive players my defense doesn’t get better which is frustrating. It’s almost like they actually play worse. I’d just like to see more of a difference when I’m investing 11 of my 12 player slots on defense than I am seeing. With that being said this game is 5 stars without a doubt. The mechanics are fun and easy. There’s stats for your players and even a HOF for the best players you’ve ever had. They continually add good updates that make the game even better and I hope they keep going because I’m going to keep playing.

A must-buy
I originally downloaded this game never hearing about it beforehand, played through the first three games, and came across the wall to purchase the rest of the game. For $1. After paying that $1 I have put countless hours into this game building different teams, coaching staffs, and mastering the different concepts the game had to offer. Before the most recent update, I believed it was too easy to score field goals — which was quickly remedied as it is now more difficult which is GOOD. This simple mobile game provides the GM experience you would like to see in an official EA Madden game, but simplifies the gameplay to offensive efforts only, having the defense simulate itself. Playing against teams you’ve built in the prior year can become your worst enemy as you’re going against your own evil creation. You can call audibles, timeouts, cut players, praise/fine players for certain actions, and so much more. The only recommendation I have for the developers of this game (if possible) is to try and implement a lateral system so the football can be passed off to another player close by to avoid a tackle, but with a higher chance of fumbling. Other than that, this game is an absolute must. Even if you know NOTHING about football, you will quickly pick it up and never want to put it down.

Good game with flawed design
For a free game and even a dollar it’s good but it has some major problems. While I enjoy the mechanics and aesthetic, clearly development of the dynamic difficulty system suffered. It seems to me that the developer didn’t know how to make AI defense more skilled which I suppose I wouldn’t either so higher difficulty simply makes your players drop the easiest catches known to man significantly more often the higher your difficulty level. In fact, it seems that your players drop easy catches frequently in general, but the insanely high frequency which this occurs at in high difficulty is simply ridiculous. This increased difficulty also makes your defense essentially non existent so it’s a game of keeping up on offense and winning off a last second field goal. My other problem with this game would be the running. While it’s already quite bad that you can generally only throw up to like 20 yards or so, your players run out of stamina very quickly so you can generally expect them to run at most 20 yards after the catch which is in my opinion really dumb. This forces you into letting touchdowns by in score or go home moments when your receiver was wide open and far away from any defenders because he just starts walking towards the end zone after running 10 yards. It also makes the run game utterly unviable. If these 2 main issues aforementioned were fixed, it’s a 5 star for me.

Nice idea but such lazy / poor AI
I loved the original this is based on and really appreciate what the devs are ostensibly trying to do. They also have added a lot of features that are really well thought out that make the game more of a long-term experience. It’s nice that the difficulty adapts to you as you play, too. But once the difficulty reaches a certain point, the game is unplayable and laughably broken. Imagine that literally every single other player on the opposing team is 2-4 times faster than literally every single player on your team. Imagine corners being able to intercept any ball thrown within 12 feet of them — regardless of if your throw arc looks perfectly above them to your open receiver. Imagine it taking the computer 25 seconds to score a TD from 95 yards out while it takes you nearly 4 minutes to eke out a TD if you are PERFECT. Imagine throwing a ball perfectly to an open tight end and it literally bounces off their face incomplete 10-15 times in a game. Imagine knowing with 100% certainty that when the opposition gets the ball, they will invariably score a TD from anywhere on the field. Imagine it being impossible to gain more than 22 yards on any play, ever. I get that it’s a mobile game, it’s a buck, and it’s not a “football simulator”. But this is such lazily coded AI that amounts to nothing more than, “the defense is 100% flawless, 100% of the time, and at least 100% faster than 100% of your players.”

Amazing game but a suggestion for you guys
Game is brilliant and I won’t go into why it is because we all already know. These 5 stars are not to get this comment seen as I authentically believe this is a 5 star game that amazingly only costs 99 cents for the complete version. Just one of the things I think you guys could fix as of now is the fan bar. You always start with a team with one win the previous season (and yes you can win last game). Next year, if you make the right moves you can start with a more than reasonable record for your team (I play on extreme so it’s not the easiest thing to do year 2 but doable for sure). Right now I am 5-3 but since I lost my last game my fans are at 1%. Realistically, if you’re a fan of a team that went 1-15 the year before but got a new coach and are now 5-3 through the first half the season, Id like to think you’d be very, VERY happy with the progress. I feel like the bar does not go up enough for wins (especially situationally), and then falls far too much for even one loss. I think you guys could probably look into it and tweak it to make it much better. Anyways thanks for one of the best apps ever created and I hope you guys keep improving the game and adding more features👍.

Simply amazing
Dear developers: I love you. This is football perfection (die hard Bears fan, so yes, I bleed football, but done right). This game is a perfect amalgamation of a football rpg with the GM aspects, a techno bowl successor with the gameplay, and Maddow, with the players rankings, drafting, etc. i am I total love with this game, and it was free. I love it some much I HAD to buy the full version. Only a couple of naggles. The main one is difficulty. Hard and dynamic give a challenge by being cheaper. High star players no longer catching the ball, at intercepts EVERYTHING, and even 1 star defenses will give your 5 star offense fits. This must be evened out, as on medium were GODs on the field. I difficulty in between would be nice. I love sitting back and waiting to see what my defense will do without my interference but I’m sure there’s some way you can give the option of calling defensive plays just not control the players. That would be awesome. Otherwise, the nuance in this game is deeper than many console game. My players with drug problems had on filed issues. My star wideout declined with age. Players whose stats weren’t the best shocked and out performed as 5 star players underwhelmed. It is amazing how they incorporated most aspects of football into this little package. These guys need a f@#&@## award for there efforts. Bravo guys.

Taught me how football works
Getting into this game has taught me how football works. No other football game has taken me past confusion with football and into understanding like this one. Like, I knew nothing about football before playing this game, nothing, and now I understand a lot! I was obsessed with this game for a while, but after a certain point I felt like there was no challenge. Every game basically plays the same way. Especially after optimizing my team, I started crushing almost every game except maybe one or two in a season. Starting a new game doesn't rekindle my interest either because the games still all play the same. I'm not sure what I'd like to see change. But I HIGHLY recommend this game all the same. Especially if it's free! Edit: Actually I'd like to play defense. Right now you don't actually play when the other team has the ball, text comes up that tells you what's happening and you don't control any of it until you get control again. If you have a low star defense, you can expect an opposing team to score every time they get the ball, making every interception devastating, and you can't do anything about it. It would be nice to have more control in order to mitigate this and also it'd just be fun! Still highly recommend.

This game is awesome
This game is awesome and a great way to pass the time. I have put many many many hours into it. I love the way the draft feature and the free agent feature works as well. Just adds more detail and a lot more fun into the game. One thing that I thought about for a long time and would like to recommend to the developers if they are willing to think about it is a trade feature between teams. Like how the draft and the free agency works. I think it would be cool to have another button that opens active trades for players that other teams are putting up. And you could trade your players or draft picks for their players. Maybe not every team will have a player to trade at once and maybe like free agency the options you can trade for change every few weeks so it keeps things moving and you get a lot more interaction between you and other teams. You get to do more on the coaching side like the draft and free agency while you also march your way through the season trying to get to the retro bowl. Just a thought I had and would love it if the developers would consider it. At the end of the day this is their game and it’s an awesome game either way. 5 star game for sure

Best Mobile Game I’ve Ever Played!
I love this game alot! When I first downloaded it I played 4 hours straight no lie! Very addicting to will you’re draftees to a super bowl (haven’t done it yet lol) I love the team/league editing, for someone who loves aesthetics they really hit it out of the park!! Only tweaks I would love to see implemented would have to be 1. Defense, yah it would probably be hard but my defense can’t seem to stop anyone anyway so im up to the challenge lol 2. Some Type Of System where I can make my own trades for players nd not picks 3. there needs to be a playbook option like madden mobile, Playaction, Run, Short, Long Pass. Think it would make things more interesting nd keep offenses looking original 4. If Everything is gonna cost coins, there needs to be more coins handed out, seems once I get enough coins to do something I gotta put my players conditioning back up taking me back to zero coins. One last thing I would like to suggest is to expand the # of saves, I think 10 would be suffice, I want to play as all my favorite teams from day 1 and not jump mid save if you get my drift. Anyway That is all I would to do make this game a 10/10 master piece, thank y’all for making this game!!!

Bought it and was not disappointed
The game is now free, but even when it wasn’t I was looking for a game exactly like mid you I don’t really care for football I’m more of a basketball guy but I played one free season and was amazed back at its early stage I couldn’t help but buy since my birthday was in a few days with a small very small portion of the money I bought this game and nba2k20 mobile I played retro bowl and I have been playing for 1 year and just recently stared really playing this a game agin like a month ago I won 4 championships in a row I maintain and stack my roster I have attachment to my players I wish you could look at everyone in the leagues stats tho and there was deeper progression system I want intel on teams and when I don’t sign a player I want to see where he goes i also want a option to sim games although there aren’t that many I sometimes don’t wanna play some, I showed my friend and he can’t stop playing this game he wants a stacked roster like me but I’ve been playing so long and also bought some stuff you might be a one man team but take you time and make this happen I’m a happy Customer I want it to be EVEN better though write me back if you see so we can chat maybe.

Fun to play - Kind of a rip-off
Yeah, it’s addictive. And fun for awhile. But after I paid for the unlimited version, and paid to increase the salary cap, all my best players started getting injured… regularly. It’s a given at this point that when I begin a new season, one, two, or even three of my players is going to miss at least a third of it. As I write this, my running back, wide receiver and one of my defensive backs is injured; and will be out for multiple games. My quarterback just returned from a 5 game stint on the IL. If the developers want to improve the game, there should be an option to turn off injuries. Because of this issue, I can only give the game 2 stars. Update April 21: So I’m reducing my rating to one star, because the developers recoded the game to essentially make your Running Back useless (My 5 Star RB is now a crappy third receiver). I was in the middle of a season when the last update was released, and my RB went from averaging 70-80 rushing yards per game to less than 20! On most attempted running plays, he’s not even getting to the line of scrimmage. The same is true of your Offensive Linemen (I have two highly rated OL’s, but my Quarterback is sacked multiple times per game - I played one game where he was sacked 6 times by a 2 star defense). They went from averaging 10-12 blocks per game to 2. Were other players clamoring for these drastic changes? Who knows? But it really did not improve the gameplay at all.

Good enough
Game is fun and easy to get into and start enjoying right away. Lots of customization that don’t have anything to do with gameplay (uniform and ball style, for instance) which do add an element of fun. As for gameplay it’s fairly routine and the rhythm of the game is predictable. There’s a few mechanical issues with the way the game is played. One problem is setting the ball on either hashmark which the NFL does not do but always instead places at the ball in the middle of the field creating angular kicks. In college the ball is placed on the nearest hashmark. Also when a player falls down without having been touched by another player in the NFL the play is still live. In college the play ends. However in RB the college rule applies so there is an inconsistency there. You can’t make any substitutions during the game. This detracts considerably from you thinking you’re actually coaching since once the game starts you’re locked into whatever players are there. The defense management is passive. Nevertheless, I was able to go into about my fifth season and with a new team (Cleveland) won the Retro Bowl in my first season as their coach. The only upgrade I purchased was the basic $.99 upgrade. I had a good draft and reinvested my coaching credits into team health and morale.

Completely Hot Garbage
Updated again: The game no longer costs 99 cents because it is completely unplayable. Every update makes it worse than before. I don’t even know what is going on over there but I just want to cry because it was so fun, absolutely perfect, and I got to enjoy it for like 3 weeks, my iPad was broken for a week, when I got it fixed and the game was updated it was pretty bad, and I wrote this first review update, took it from 5 stars to 1 and struggled with a broken game, and then they updated it again, and now it is absolutely wrecked. I don’t have the heart to uninstall, I don’t pay for games often, and I wrote “best game... in 10 years” in my first review, but I’m only keeping it in memorial effigy of a game I almost got to have. At this point I am guessing the next update will have even bigger catch radii, completely unstoppable offensive weapons, and the opposing teams will get shut out completely by any defense just a 1/2 star better than their offense, all turnovers too if 3/2 stars better. First review: Just reviewing for credits, but best game I have played in 10 years. Update: bought the game because it was perfect, then the dev updated it. I WANT MY 99 CENTS BACK! If we can choose between 2 and 3 minute quarters, why can’t we choose which version we want to play? I really liked the old receiver tie up game mechanic that resulted in lots of drops and broken up passes, now every throw is a pick or a completion. Refund please.

Super fun but needs some easy fixes
i started playing a few weeks back and i love this game, but one thing i found difficult was my morale was always so low with no way to bring it up. i felt like every game a player had a dui or was fighting. there are very few positive situations that arise, like i could throw for 800 yards and the postgame interview would be “what are your thoughts on (insert DB) today” and the two options are both negative. not to mention the fact that i can be 6-0 with 70% fan approval, then lose one game and it plummets to 45% approval (yes that actually happened) there needs to be more positive rewards. secondly i think the draft picks really shouldn’t start with such high ratings. maybe put one or two that start out as like 3 star prospects, but most of them should just be 1 or 2 star players with POTENTIAL to be 5 star, giving you an incentive to hold onto your investment. and also maybe make make coaching credits a little easier to get? everything is super expensive and by the time i can afford to upgrade facilities or get better coaching, my star players are retiring or on different teams and i have no QB because i spent all my coins on a 3 star offensive coordinator. again, fantastic game, but please take some of these things into consideration. thanks!

Literally the best Mobile Game there is.
This is absolutely the best game on the App Store 100%. This is the football game that can really scratch that itch when you want to play a good football game. I play this more than any other sports game on any other platform. It nah seem to have a simplistic style with what seem like simple mechanics, can actually yield some amazing plays and memorable games. The AI is perfectly balanced and even gives me a run for my money in hard mode as it is. The management system is perfectly made, with all the drafts, trades, free agencies, administration management, you can really utilize tools to make a winning team that still gets challenged, and it’s always fun to make multiple saves and build your teams up in so many different ways. There is a team editor so you can even form a new team or make a custom league of your own teams. If I had to complain about anything I’d say fumbling feels a little too frequent, but that can be very overshadowed by everything else in this game. One debatable issue can’t even compare to all the pros about this game. 100% worth the download and it’s worth every penny to purchase the full game.

Better than Madden ever was!
Love this game. Everything about it is straight fire. But I do have a few suggestions: 1. Defense mode - Come on. There’s no football without a defense 2. Player progression - I think non star players, if used enough, should become star players. And Vice versa. Also make use of X-Factor abilities. Or call it Retro-Factor. 3. Refs and Flags - Maybe add actual refs and show a ref saying touchdown, or announcing a penalty and stuff. Also add penalties and flags and all that. 4. Halftime! - A little halftime show wouldn’t hurt. 5. Game time - allow for maybe up to 6 minutes per quarter. 6. Plays - Allow us to choose from a playbook of plays. 7. Coin Flip - Allow us to have a coin flip mini game. 8. Zooming in on players - Make the camera zoom in on players after plays. 9. POV - Allow us to switch to players other than the quarterback before plays and let us switch between players as a play is happening. 10. Training and Practice - Allow us to train and practice before games to enhance our abilities. 11. Celebrations! - Need more of them. 12. Logo - Put team logos on the fields. That’s all I’ve got. Thanks for your time. Still love the game!

Best football game I've played
This is what a great game looks like. I'm not one to usually rate a game, but this one deserves it. It keeps calling me back to play it and that is something I see in console games not mobile games, but these developers did great. Yes it is retro which is a let down due to the fact that I play 3D games but that doesn't particularly matter, what matters is the fact that it's fun Now even though it is a fun and amazing game, it does have its flaws, for example your never explicitly shown how the catching works, I had a guy on my little marker showing where the ball was going but the guy three feet in front of him intercepted it, another issue is that you don't get a defensive gameplay view, just text bubbles telling you what's happened, it makes the game faster but it makes it feel like you're not fully in control of your team, I would be happy with just watching it instead of reading it, one I feel a bit more control because I can see who's not doing well or who is great, secondly similar to my first point, I'll be able to know who's my weakest link, if that was fixed I would be happy. Nonetheless this is a great game, but needs a few adjustments

I love this game, I downloaded it a while back and just reinstalled it recently and love it, my head coach has won the super bowl 23 years in a row on dynamic 16 and 2 years after that (still consecutive) on Extreme! While the game is fun and the new kick off feature is really cool, it needs to be tweaked. I noticed touchdowns and yards don’t track for players when they return kicks. I just played a game with my running back as my kick returner and he got THREE kick return touchdowns! Crazy right! But his stats didn’t track and he received a rating of 2 with no touchdowns. If they get the kickoff stats to track and effect moral for the player then I’d consider this game perfect! I saw in another post that seeing star players on opposing teams would be really neat. It would be cool for my star QB to face off against a Star DB like a Brady vs Ramsey type of deal. It would add emersion into the game. That’s all, download and enjoy! Edit: A couple more things! Punt returns would be cool! The ability to skill check or rng to block field goals. New stats like tackles broken or yards after catch, I get it’s a lot of detail but I feel the creators could do it!

Perfect to Pick Up and Play
This is a fantastic game and in certain ways better than the latest and greatest on the market today. I remember a time when you could just buy a game, pop it in your console and get up and running in less than 5 minutes. Now you need to sign into accounts, be connected to WiFi, and have to download updates all the time. It’s understandable given the complexity of modern technology but it does take away from the overall experience. Mobile gaming has followed a similar route and when playing the latest FIFA and Madden games its crazy how many things you have to do to get started. Retro Bowl has brought back that nostalgic feeling to gaming and I look forward to building my team whenever I get the chance. It has a simple interface in which you are always playing offense while the defense is simulated for you. You aren’t overwhelmed with choices and being able to simply choose between passing, running, or a QB sneak instead of memorizing countless A, B maneuvers keeps the game fun and light. It’s ultimately very straightforward and something I could even see more technologically adverse people enjoy. Sometimes, simpler really is better!

Best iPhone game
This game is so great that there isn’t much you can do to this game to make it better. One thing I would want is to be able to play on defense or at least see your team play on defense and have an option to skip it. I would also love to add announcers kind of like madden or 2k. I also want more freedom of movement when running or catching, kind of like a one-hand catch, breaking the defender’s ankles, or a spin move would be cool. Another thing you could add is for the defense to commit flags. It’s a good advantage while being realistic. Also being able to pick the play you want to do at any time like a field goal or a punt. It took me so long to hit a 60 yard field goal because I couldn’t choose to do it there needed to be seconds left in the game to be able to kick a field goal at 60 yards. Another thing that I would want is for players with expired contracts to sign for the same they did when you got them. I lost multiple players because my players that I signed back took more than I got them for. I’m at 7/10 players right now, I don’t have a running back, linebacker, or an offensive lineman.

Absolutely love this game however
The gameplay itself and everything in the game is just great love this game just a couple notes that hopefully the devs could see and take i to consideration. I wish that we could play defense some how and even if not I’d at least like to watch my defense so that I’m more encouraged to draft or sign defensive players cause like, I love having a good defense but I mainly select offensive players since I actually play or watch the offense. Idk I just wish that something with the defense could get changed. Also why does the kicker have a speed rating if I can’t go for a fake field goal I don’t see the point in having a kicker with a max speed rating over kick range and accuracy if I can’t make him run. Also I wish that this game and the college version could possibly be linked somehow so that you can draft players you played in college as a rookie in retro bowl. Also I think adding a kind of “commentator” would be nice as they definitely add to the games moments like 1000 times more all I’m saying is just put like little subtitles at the top saying the players name and that they keep going or something they definitely would be a dope edition to an already dope game.

This is probably one of the best games, however..
I really do enjoy this game, it’s a fun game to pass the time. The gameplay is clean and the decisions you make actually matter. I also feel that even though you can “pay to win” it feels worse and less rewarding than if you play the game as intended. My problem arises when the AI takes over defense. Note, I like to play the game on hard with three minute quarters. I constantly find myself running into the problem at being at the mercy of my defense to win games. I’m sure the devs are working on a way to play defense, but as of right now it makes the game feel incomplete. Even with a five star defense with four and five star players there isn’t anything I can do if I get a bad roll of the dice except cheat and restart the app hoping for a better one. And if I choose to play on a lower difficulty I just win because the enemy defensive AI is significantly easier on medium. Closing thoughts: even though I really do like this game, but it feels incomplete, and for that I can’t rate it any higher than three stars. I really hope the devs are working on defensive gameplay, and I hope just as much that it feels are rewarding as the offense. Thanks for the great game though, and keep up the good work!

Mobile Game of The Year.
I’m not gonna claim to have played this before it got big, because I didn’t. But I’m so glad I picked it up when I did. Even the free version of the game is amazing, but after the dollar version I can genuinely say it’s one of if not the best mobile game I’ve ever played. Beautifully made and so well put together. I love that it’s a full retro style and not some clunky 3D type game. As well as getting to play as a GM and players, it’s a perfect balance between the two. And as someone who can easily get bored of other mobile games in a week or less I can always count on RB to satiate my boredom. I also don’t know how you guys could do it and I’m sure it would take a lot of work but adding star players to other teams would be awesome, as well as them having individual stats. I’m also not sure how or if it would work. But defense. I know I would 100% enjoy that. I’m sure also a good majority of players would love to see a retro basketball or even a retro baseball game. The developers of this entire project have done God’s work with this game and I can’t want to see what the future of this company brings.

More than I expected!
Man this game is simple, fun, and awesome! Not only do you control the office but you are in charge of the entire team, staff, facilities and attributes for everyone you control. You are the GM and head coach and you have to make decisions that you deem right for your players, coaches, fans and franchise. This game was well thought out and exciting. Even the difficulty is unique as your players performance depends on how well they trained or how tired they are from previous games, plus the strength of your opponent. Low rank teams will put up a fight but the high ranked teams will demolish you if you’re not careful! I’m in week 14 and in a tight run to make the playoffs! There’s so much that goes into your decision making like a real GM and I would’ve never thought this game would have it all. It would’ve been great to control some defense too, I drafted 3 DEF rookies to start my new team. But playing offense is just as fun. This definitely gives you some Tecmo Bowl memories but this is a great adaptation. Highly recommend this game! And if my review doesn’t convince you, the menu music alone is worth your $1!!! The retro synths with the beat drop is straight FIRE!!! RETRO BOWL LESSSGOOO!!!

It’s good. Very easy, but good.
Update: When changing the conference name, the championship should say the new conference name, not the basic NFC/AFC. In the season records in my countries league (took me 5 hours to make lol) it says NFC champs for one year, and it bothers me because everything else says EFC. Please fix. Alright, I’ve been playing this game for a long time, starting playing it near its release. I recommend playing on hard difficulty, otherwise the game is very boring and easy. It’s still easy on hard difficulty, but a bit more fun. It’s a great game. I think that QBs don’t fumble enough. This is a simple request that could change, IDK and I don’t mind if it doesn’t. I also think DBs on the opposing team if they have a good defense should be physical and dive for the ball and stuff. Stop making the game easier please. I want a harder challenge, so please at least tweak some things for the hard difficulty. 1I know coding is difficult and it would be hard to do these things, but still it might make the game more challenging and fun. Great work devs. Retro Bowl has been one of my top 3 favorite games consistently these years.

Torn about this game
Let me start off by saying that I think the main gameplay loop of this game is fantastic. There’s a feel to placing your passes that sometimes feels better to me than Madden ever did. I love the team building aspect and how it’s simplified. I never liked building teams from the management end in other football games. It’s addictive and rewarding to play. Games don’t take that long and always leave you wanting to start a new one. The price point is great as well. Here are my gripes that are causing me to not rate this 4 or 5 stars. First off, and this may be minor but it always seems that on big plays the receiver or RB slow down so much after getting 30-40 yards. It’s like all of a sudden they are running in molasses. This is frustrating because it completely removes any excitement of a big play. But this leads into my second (and main) issue. This game is too easy. It’s almost as if the slow running was put there to balance the fact that you can pull off huge plays all the time. After a couple seasons it becomes so easy to build a 5 star team that just wrecks everyone and before you know it you’re having perfect seasons every time. There needs to be some balancing done here in a way that doesn’t take away from how good the gameplay feels.

Awesome game. I play it whenever I have downtime or just get a chance to. The ability to customize your team and manage free agency, coaching, the draft and much more is an aspect I don’t see many other games implement. Obviously I don’t have much bad to say, but there are some tweaks I think would make it even better: Increased chance for interceptions to be by star DBs. I feel like having 2-3 really good DBs only increases the chance an INT happens, not increasing the players chance. I’d love to see my players get more chances to improve their stats so I can see the actual impact they had in their career in the HOF. Simulated games. I’ll never get tired of the game but sometimes I just don’t feel like playing the 2-13 Jaguars in week seventeen. I think simulated games would be really cool to see for research purposes on how to build a good team for newer players. Lastly, I think being able to see a players stats throughout their whole career by season would be really cool, especially if they were traded to you or picked up in FA. Idk about others but I like to see my team grow so getting that story through their stats in their whole career would be awesome.

Fun but lacking
Wish there were the possibility of penalties (perhaps a combination of skill/XP and morale?) and i don’t like having no control over my defense beyond picking the players and the DC. Having control over the plays on offense would be nice. Like picking the plays and setting the playbook before the game. Maybe knowing what team has as a preference for on offense (like pass heavy, run often) and being able to tailor your defense in an effort to stop the opposing team. If I can’t direct my defense, being able to set it for blitzing the QB, covering the WR, or whatever would be a suitable compromise. Lastly, it’s annoying that when I call an audible, the CPU defense shifts. The point of calling an audible is adjusting the offensive play after seeing the defensive coverage. For example, if you were about to pass but see the defensive coverage is favoring pass blocking, you can audible for a run and pick up yardage. The defense would have to adjust but it wouldn’t be instant like in the game currently. Overall, it is fun but fun enough to wish it had more. If it did incorporate those suggestions; penalties; more interaction wile on defense; playbook selection; and audibles not shifting the CPU defense; I would 100% buy this game on multiple platforms. As it stands now, it’s great as a free game. Weather and replay isn’t interesting enough for me to shell out money.

Good but could be a lot better
It’s a fun time-waster, but there is a fine line between simple and easy. This game is just easy. After I was used to the mechanics, in the second full season, I went 19-0. Receivers are always open at the line which usually gets you 5+ yards a play just like that. It would be more fun if it was more difficult. You should make it so that receivers are guarded tighter so it isn’t so easy, make running give you a little more yards on average so the game isn’t so pass heavy, and allow us to kick a field goal from whatever the REAL maximum is. I made a 63 yarder with ease earlier. We all know those “seconds” aren’t really seconds. Two RB seconds are practically equal to one real second. Either change how long your seconds last or add more of them. The biggest thing probably is allowing us to play defense. This will make the game way more fun for everyone, and give another huge aspect to the game. If you do this, PLEASE do not make it easy. If you have to, add difficulty settings. I haven’t downloaded the full version, but I don’t think there are settings for that on there. This game has big potential. Make sure you update it often so the game is more enjoyable and doesn’t start to get boring. Do all these things and it’s 5 stars from me.

Fun but lacking in the defense department
I love the game, however I find the defense honestly infuriating. You don’t really have any say in what goes on right then and now and feel detached. Once you have enough challenging scaling if you’re good enough the game just gives the other team the touchdown without your ability to change it. Just makes it feel unfair rather then fun. Ill be lucky if I have a turn over or interception so I can get ahead of the other team. I was trying to do all starless but I would just end up having not enough time to get up even with 2 points ahead on touchdown . They would end with it and with starless members I just can’t get there fast enough. Not to mention if you do get to the higher scaled difficulties your runner is pretty much useless, even some of the best guys can’t break through one nameless fella. I thrashed on the game pretty hard so you might be curious on why I still wrote a good review, and that’s because I can change the difficulty settings. Honestly would like more love to dodging, runners, and the issue with not being able to win as starless within the higher difficulties but it’s nothing too bad

Well done
Love the passing. The gameplay is nostalgic and it actually is well made. Enjoyed it throughout the first season. It has scenarios after each game which you can control. Like if a player stayed out after curfew or was caught with drugs. You can control if you want to discipline them or ignore. It will add fans or drop moral and each game gives experience so you can level your players. You get to choose what ability to upgrade like QB hits level 2 you can pick arm strength/ accuracy/ stamina or speed. Has full stats for each game / year / and career for each star player. You spend just $1 you can name everyone for your favorite teams. Hire coaches and upgrade stadiums. It’s really well done. Only down side so far is you don’t get to play defense and the RB and WR just run in a strait line after they do their route. You have to swipe up or down to dodge but feels kinda basic. Wish it had a directional pad to control. But the QB play is a lot of fun. You control how far you want or to throw short or lead the WRs. And of coarse it looks just like tecmobowl. Definitely recommend if you are a fan of the old game. I can’t stop playing it.

Good bones but a few suggestions
First and foremost, this game is already a lot of fun. All I feel it really needs is a few improvements to better both the actual gameplay and simulation aspects of it. Pass interference is my key gripe. Really takes the wind out of drives and is a bit frustrating, especially when you first takeover a new team and have bad personnel. Secondly, being able to change formation and choose where your personnel go on the field would be a welcome change. Thirdly, I have yet to experience growth from my coaches, unless I have been doing something wrong, getting my coaches xp is something that hasn’t occurred yet. Finally, maybe some end of league accolades or a player HOF to encourage retaining players and building their story and legacy towards your team. It might not have been what you sought out for when you started out but the potential of this game is off the chain! Thank you so much for making this. PS: The salary cap forced me to cut some players in order to complete the draft. Is there an option to forego draft picks or can one be made to trade a draft pick for a pick the following year? Thank you so much!

This game is great
This game is the best game on AppStore I play it all the time. It’s competitive let’s you create your own team you don’t need internet you can play it anywhere u r. It’s free u rly don’t need any money unless you want too this game isn’t payed to win. It almost never gets boring, this is the greatest game out there, although. The game has some flaws and it would b great if the developers could fix it. First the game is very competitive and that’s the whole point but this have has a little glitch for players to cheat, all you do is just close the app and open which I think that kills the whole point of the game because it’s supposed to b competitive but people take advantage and use that. something personal, my game just lost all my progress it hasn’t happened to anyone before and I really like that team it was the team I originally started with but one day I opened the app and my progress was reset. I had also naught the unlimited version and it reset too could someone help or do anything for that. Overall tho this game is fun it offers u everything. Great Concept!

Great game, but not always balanced well
I like this game and I think it’s well worth the price to get the full version. I’ve played through probably 30 seasons so far. That said, the devs often “over-balance” the game at their updates. It seems like after every update you have to totally change your offensive game plan to be able to win games. For example, playing on the highest difficulty I was able to average 4-5 yards per rush attempt, with a nice balance of a few 10+ rushes and a few getting stuffed at the line of scrimmage. Now after the most recent update, rushing is next to impossible and with the same team I’m averaging maybe 1-2 yards per attempt with a solid half or more of attempts going for 0 or negative yards. This is with a 4 star RB and two 5 star offensive lineman. Now I basically have to throw every play, which just isn’t as fun. I don’t want to sound overly negative. I do genuinely enjoy this game. It’s a nice medium between a casual mobile sports game and playing franchise mode on Madden. Really my only complaint is that the “tweaks” that the devs list on the update notes (and in fairness to them, they do post thorough update notes) occasionally overshoot what I would consider balance.
