Retro Bowl app reviews

  • Five stars but… 1/5

    By Maxkspa16
    NO feminine sprites! My gf wants to play as herself. I have recommended this game to 3 other people and they all love it, but it would be way more appealing if all people could play as someone who looked like them :). Also maybe some offseason stuff would be really cool and more decisions
  • I LOVE IT 5/5

    By Southerncorn
    The Game is very well thought out, and fun to play, but improvements would make it even better. I think that being able to play defense would make the games much more fun, the ability to see other teams players and coaches would be great as well. All things considered, Retro Bowl is still a great game and I love playing it!!
  • Jeffe Ymaam 5/5

    By jeffe ymaam
    It’s fun
  • Almost perfect 4/5

    By bdw3355
    Everything is great except 1 or 2 things. 1 on exhibition every time I chose KC, they become 1.5 offense 0.5 defense even though it says there 5 star offense and 3.5 defense, I don’t like it because my favorite team is KC. The other is even if you QB is max arm strength, they only throw like 30-35 yards. I think it would be very easy for them to throw 55+ like in real life.
  • Amazing game but… 5/5

    By Sour_Patch_Kid10
    Literally the best football game on mobile by far but there are a few things that retro bowl needs like defense at least watch your defense then when there is a fumble or interception you control the defense also we should be able to have a free agents list that you can use draft picks instead of cc and we should be able to trade a player for a player like a trade block update thanks for the time new star games or whoever is reading this.
  • Scammed 1/5

    By Mason Tarver
    I had bought 1,000 Coaching Credits and i did not have them when i restarted my game
  • Took my money 2/5

    By chiefc3
    I bought some coach credits and never received the, also purchased the upgrade version so I could do kickoff and never received that as well.
  • Expansion 5/5

    By youtube best app
    I love this game and I think it should expand I haven’t tried retro goal yet but I think I’ll like it I don’t play football or watch football that often but this is so fun my preferred sport is basketball I hope you can make another game like retro bowl but for basketball and possibly other sports like basketball could be “retro basket” hockey could be retro ice? maybe hockey is kind of a throw for a name but I hope you can expand especially towards basketball btw baseball seems perfect for this like “retro base” yeah well anyways I need to go get and try retro goal thank you for your time
  • Great game but… 5/5

    By Rocketwojo
    It’s a great game but I can’t find out how to turn on the unlimited settings
  • What ? 3/5

    By iverymuchdislikethis
    This game is actually mad fun but you stole 10$ from me soooo.
  • new game ideas 5/5

    By anticrex
    Retro ball (retro baseball) retro dunk (retro basketball) only 2 but they are really good ideas the only problem is , is that the probability of you seeing this is like 1 in 1,000,000,000,000 but if you do see this you can take the ideas and use them
  • Fun 5/5

    By Gffdcbjjbcfhbcsaaa
  • HOF Cap 5/5

    By Hersh87
    Love the game but didn’t know the Hall of Fame caps out at 50 players, wish that wasn’t the case

    By Koba301
  • Retro bowl glitch out 4/5

    By Dontqe
    Love the game put for some reason the game send me a message then kicks me out so I have to restart even if I restart I’ll say the same thing plz fix

    By Icy Survivalist
    Why is it that when the ball hits my WR/TE/RB right in the face, they don’t catch the ball or even make an attempt?
  • Fun but Frustrating 2/5

    By Jacob Pitts
    The controls in this game are so infuriating and inconsistent
  • Better more relating stats 5/5

    By frag needs fixed
    Just something I feel would add more spice and fun qualities to the game. I’ve found myself playing other games because of lack of content. Just to put it simple give us better linebacker stats and maybe max speed QB’s who cost a lot more.
  • I LOVE IT 5/5

    By snotlock
    I used to only play on my computer, but then I installed it now I can play on my iPod and computer. If you are 10 and you like football then this is the game there’s on thing though you should be able to play against each other not exhibition game like litterly
  • Game not working 1/5

    By Daddy has children in basement
    My good players are blind and won’t catch any footballs when I throw good throws and the other team always calls a interception when it’s touch THE DANG GROUND THE GAME IS BROKEN AND CRAP THEY NEED TO FIX IT AND I PLAY ON A iPhone 12 😡😡😡😡
  • GAME IDEA 5/5

    By tresdeddrg
    I think the game is great I love it so much but what if there was away for
  • Was loving this game until….. 3/5

    By Dad that games
    I don’t understand a few things… how come when I win 1 game I gain 5 fans but if I lose 1 game I lose 40 fans. I could beat a 15-0 team and gain 1% fan base but if I lose to that same team my fan base is essentially gone, also don’t try to simulate games, you can have 5 star defense & offense against a 1 star team, but if you simulate you have no chance of winning, which makes zero sense. The gameplay is fun, I have nothing negative to say in that area, but there are multiple areas in the game elsewhere that need tons of improvement.
  • It’s a Great Game!! 5/5

    By mecdone
    This game is probably one of my favorite apps ever. The only problem is that it doesn’t take 6 seconds to get sacked, it could take around 1 second sometimes and that’s not enough time to throw the ball. Other than that I definitely recommend this game
  • The pass is the worst 2/5

    By bj wilkins
    I hate it so much they should make it better so it won’t be hard I hate it so much.
  • Game made me learn football 5/5

    By ricekang
    Didn’t understand much about football but now I’m better able to understand how it’s played even in real life
  • Well done 5/5

    By magicmonkeymeat23
    Surprised at the quality of this game. Well thought out. Easy to play quick games.
  • Pretty fun game 4/5

    By Karl1982
    This is a fun game. Pretty well made and easy enough to figure out, even for me not being a football person. I do have two criticisms however. First an option to suspend a game and resume later would be nice. Second, it can be really frustrating when the CPU goes the whole game and gets a touchdown on every possession because then all you can do is run a perfect game and hope you get the last touchdown in the 4th quarter. You only play offense in this game. The defense is totally automatic, so if the CPU decides to run a perfect game which it often does, it can be impossible to overtake it if the clock doesn't run out in your favor.
  • W game 5/5

    By Ringokat106
    Been playing retro bowl forever and it’s still great. It’s super simple and you don’t have to spend a crap ton of money to get a good team unlike some games. It could have a few extra features but it’s the simplicity that makes it retro bowl in the first place. I recommend.
  • Good 5/5

    By washbasins
  • It has everything 5/5

    By eman2056
    Fun, cheap, constant updates, and you can play offline on airplane mode. This game has everything. Kudus to the devs!!
  • Absolute Fun 4/5

    By Hamilton0988
    This game is an amazing game. Very fun to play. Definitely worth the money and is one of only a few mobile games I’ve ever payed for. My only issue is I created a save where I only sim the games as if I’m a coach who can’t control who a QB throws to or when a RB dives. Adds a lil more realism and hardness to it. But in doing so I’ve averaged a 4.5 star off and def for 20 yrs with only 7 bowl appearances 4 loses and 3 wins. Like I’ll play a 3.5 star def and 2.5 star off team with my 5 star everything team and loose by 14 in the bowl game. It’s like Brady and Gronk in the early 2000s losing to the Lions in the superbowl. It’s just impossible except in this game if you sim it apparently. But even that irritates me it’s such a good game I still play it.
  • YES reminds me of the “John Madden” days 5/5

    By gavander
    So If you Like Madden and u wanna Play a original “Madden-Like” game Like “Madden ‘87” then this is the game for u.
  • Best football game ever 5/5

    By browns man
    This is better than madden like you can deal with Legal issues and get in arguments with players but really it’s just so simple to play and has a great football expirence
  • I like it 5/5

    By Dannywannypanny72
    But can y’all add qb mode
  • W Game 5/5

    By 99"!$$
    This game is awesome I wish I could watch my team play defense though that would be cool
  • Obsessed 5/5

    By y.nellis
    I really love this game, even my older brother asked me the name of it cause he was interested when he saw me play it. I really like sports but i’m not really into knowing the players in each team, but playing this i really have had fun. Something i think that would make this game better though is maybe being able to play defense instead of it being a sim, and maybe being able to have more than just 10 players, that way if many are injured u can have like a backup, if that makes sense. Other than that i really love the game!!
  • Random team change 1/5

    By dvogel2012
    This game is a lot of fun. So much so I’ve gotten to year 12. I was coaching for San Francisco and went to hop on today only to find out it’s somewhat been reset. It’s now the beginning of the game, I was prompted to edit my coaches info and am now one week 18 coaching for Cincinnati who is 4-12. But, I have my five star offense and defense as well as both coordinators. All upgrades to facilities and team remain. No clue what’s going on but it’s unfortunate.
  • BEST GAME 5/5

    By danny boyss
    This game is so good better then Mobil madden
  • good game but there is just one flaw 5/5

    By Lespicer
    the game is amazing, its great, i love not having to play defence because that would make the games so much longer. But i want to be able to see other teams star players and roster and also i don’t like how much stamina matters because in real life players don’t slow down after 3 seconds carrying the ball, also, add pass interference calls because everytime i throw a pick its because the db PUSHES THE GUY AND CATCHES IT
  • Best app ever 5/5

    By light jimbo
    It’s just the best nothing more needs to be said
  • I LOVE IT!!! 5/5

    By NFL [email protected] House
    First of all, I love the unlimited version. It allows so much creativity to the game. You can make all of the teams College or create your own teams. The gameplay is OK. I would like if you could play defense. I wish you could request a trade to another team, and there should be a way you could play as a wide receiver or QB. It would also be cool if there was online play. I know there’s exhibition mode, but that’s for if there was a Retro Bowl player right next to you. There isn’t 4.9, so I had to go with 5.
  • Best game ever! 5/5

    By 59723496
    I love this game, but it could use a little work. Here are some ideas. A pvp league. The ability to create A full roster. Longer name capacity. 7 draft rounds. More accurate ratings on things like speed and stamina. More free agents. An off-season where you can do drills. The ability to trade player for player, or draft pick for player, or multiple picks for players. The ability to examine other teams rosters. Pro bowls. Option plays. Multiple running backs. Being able to play defense. Ability to make a specialized player that you create and play as. The defense needs to lose stamina too. There should be hot reads, so that my RB stops jumping and stealing a hail mary pass. There should be the option to have a full, 15 minute per quarter game with a shot clock.
  • This game is amazing 5/5

    By Mikeconcha
    I have never played a game like this. It so fun when you’re a football fan. Although I wish you could do more in this it is still
  • Please fix 3/5

    By Fix this please please
    It’s not a bad game but I tried to click the random team button and it kept on giving me the same 3 teams Arizona, Carolina and Houston and it’s annoying having to coach the same 3 teams every time because it won’t give you any other teams and I like to randomize it and pick teams that I don’t know much about and make them good but it gives me the same 3 teams.
  • Amazing game but there’s one thing 5/5

    By lianisgoodboyboyboy
    It’s like the best game you can get for football and that’s really good but there is one thing on mobile you can’t access the shop So there it’s still amazing
  • This game is good but what about this… 5/5

    By Ezramonster
    Would love to see a create your own player option, also would be nice if you could maybe add an option were you could ask teams to trade players. And lastly this would even be better if you could play with other people online against teams they have built. Sort of like Madden does. Love the game and I enjoy all the updates but I just thought maybe those could be something to look into.
  • whoever made this, i hope you kill yourself 1/5
