  • Added player name editor
  • Possible fix for cutting player issue
  • Fixed teams displaying zero stars
  • Fixed 5 star achievements
  • Added uniform selection
  • Injured players recover during P.O bye week
  • Reduced salary and cost of free agents
  • Ties have a negative fan effect
  • Fixed trade news showing team name twice
  • Fixed play-off games ending in a tie

Also, just in case you missed it, we posted our Retro Bowl review yesterday. You can read it here.

In the end, Retro Bowl is quite possibly the most fun mobile game I have ever played. Sure, there’s only so much you can do before you’re just playing tirelessly through each season with hopes of winning back-to-back titles. But for a game that seems so simple, it’s anything but simple. As you progress deeper into a season, the game seems to get much harder, and you will need to prioritize the players you sign via free agency and the draft. After spending the last week with the game, it has lived up to the hype and much more.

  1. Woo! Maybe it will finally be worth taking a running back.
    Also, has anyone figured out how to “trade a player in”? I’ve only seen the ability to trade players out, which is always for a draft pick or sign a free agent.

    I've only had it occur when a team makes the offer to me randomly.
    This game is already awesome, and it's getting even better with these updates. From the dev's twitter posts, he talked about possibly adding in kickoffs & defense.
    If multiplayer ever gets added in, this might be the best football game in a long time. It's sad to think that with the current state of football games a phone game is the best offering, but it's true. All we are looking for is fun gameplay & team management, and this game offers both.

    This is by far the best mobile game I've ever player as a sports fan.  Easy to control, simple but challenging and a ton of fun.
    Well done to the devs,  would have paid a little extra even but not going to complain about something being too much of a value, I'm a season in I hope it doesn't become to a point I need to buy in game currency.
    Ugh, I was loving this game so much and then it borked in the playoffs of the 7th season and all of my progress was lost :( Such a bummer because I have been loving this game so much, but it's hard to go back to it knowing it can delete all my progress at any moment. 
    I hope everyone encourages this developer to make a Retro NHL game too...
    This crew knows what they are doing..
    I haven’t loved a game like this since maybe Flight Control on iOS way way way back when.

    I saw someone on Twitter mention it and something tells me they would like to do something like that down the road. The developer(s) are really receptive on social media.
    I downloaded this thing around release and I have 10 seasons played. I know several OSers who play this game and share their progress too. It's really cool and there's plenty of room to grow.
    Some of my wants include:
    -A play calling screen, even if it's just a three play option.
    -An option to extend the clock to 3 minutes per quarter.
    Other than that everything else I'm sure is in the works as they seem to continue to update this game and look for beta testers. I think we'll get some sort of ability to run with the QB down the road too because the devs also shared this video on twitter earlier.

    I love your suggestions!
    I would also like to see the AI continue to get better.
    They do some pretty dumb and repetitive things on defense (and on O at ends of game when they need points)
