The classic football game Tecmo Bowl is now available on iPhone and iPod Touch via a re-imagined version of the original called Tecmo Bowl Throwback. Tecmo Bowl Throwback is available in the App Store immediately for $7.99 USD.
The original Tecmo Bowl first made its debut in the arcades in 1987, then continued its march down field onto the NES. Tecmo Bowl Throwback brings back the side-scrolling gameplay of the Tecmo Bowl series while building on the version of Tecmo Bowl released for consoles in 2010.
Tecmo Bowl Throwback features 30 teams, including two All-Star squads, along with three gameplay modes ranging from single games to full seasons. Players can choose from the 28 regular teams in both single-game Preseason mode and a full Season mode. In Season mode, gamers choose a favorite team as both player and coach. In the All-Star Mode, players pick their favorite players from all the teams in the WFC and BFC divisions to create two divisional All Star teams that can be matched up head-to-head.
