Also, just in case you missed it, here is our Retro Bowl review.

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. I’m utterly surprised at how fun this game is and how smooth it plays. A few things I’d appreciate being added such as stat tracking for all teams and the ability to edit player race, hair, etcetera, but overall for the money it costs to unlock the full game, I’m not complaining but instead making suggestions. It’s a really great game.
    They did a great job with the changes to the uniforms. The only edit I made was to make the Cleveland logo match the helmet color so the logo is then non-existent.
    I hope they add alternative uniforms and the ability to independently select the home and away uniform instead of selecting them as a set.
    Love this game!
    This has become one of my favorite football games in recent years, even with how simple it is. I've turned my game into a college league with most of the common/popular college teams. I'm on season 7 with 4 championships, so it's a little too easy at times. Though the hard part is keeping my high star players after a few years when the salary cap gets maxed out because they want more and more money every year. Then you're forced to trade them for draft picks and basically start over. But that's part of the fun.
    The only thing I really want to see added is a playable defense, or at least let me watch the opponent on offense. Also a 5 minute quarter setting would be nice. Other than that, it's very well worth the money and honestly is too cheap for its own good.
