Jay Plays Retro Bowl

In this week’s mobile game review, Jay Plays Retro Bowl by New Star Games. This 8-bit football game is a real throwback to the days of Tecmo Bowl on NES. Take control of your favorite team or start with a fledgling franchise and turn it into a winner! Build your team including assistant coaches to boost morale and move up in the standings. Use coach credits to upgrade your facilities, sign free agents, and draft rookies during the off season.

This is probably the best game I’ve reviewed yet in the Jay Plays series. I’m hopeless addicted and will be a great companion during the upcoming football season. But don’t just take my word for it! Pitfall Gary posted an in-depth Retro Bowl review earlier this year and also raved about it.
