Let's take a dive into the captivating world of Retro Bowl, an evergreen 8-bit-style American football video game crafted by the talented team at New Star Games, available for both iPhone and Android users. The game's charm isn't limited to mobile devices; it extends its allure to web browsers, inviting players to experience its magic on platforms like Poki and Kongregate.
Inspired by the iconic Tecmo Bowl series, Retro Bowl became a sensation, reaching its zenith as the most downloaded app on Apple's App Store in the latter part of 2021. This triumph paved the way for another delightful creation, Retro Goal, introduced to the gaming community in June 2021.
Retro Bowl isn't just about making touchdowns on the field; it offers a unique twist by placing players in the role of both participant and team manager. Engage in strategic decisions, from player trades to signing free agents and boosting team morale. While the teams draw inspiration from real-life NFL counterparts, Retro Bowl cleverly navigates copyright waters, presenting similar jerseys and substituting team names with city monikers.

Retro Bowl games take you back to earlier NFL seasons. It all started with the 1962 NFL Championship Game between the New York Giants and Baltimore Colts. After the 1989 season, all bowl games turned into Retro Bowl games, featuring teams from different eras.
Get ready for the traditions of Retro Bowl, the Sugar Bowl, and the Fiesta Bowl. Each bowl has its own vibe and traditions. This season has 12 bowl games, giving you lots to look forward to if you're a college football fan. The last time we had so many bowl games was in 2014, and it opened the door for teams to compete without needing automatic bids.
The switch from 11 players to 12 players per side brought in a new era of National Championship Football. Teams no longer needed automatic bids to play in bowls, making it an exciting time for college football fans.
