Retro Bowl Review

Samuel Nnadi

Retro Bowl has taken Oratory Prep by storm over the past few weeks. Retro Bowl serves as a great game for students to play in-between their class times, during lunch, and even after school– but definitely not during class. The football game is being played by almost everyone at the school, but I’m here to tell you if the game deserves the hype or not.

Retro Bowl is a free-to-play, retro, arcade-style football game, where you are tasked with the job of being the boss of a football franchise! It’s very easy to access, available to play on both computer and mobile devices. The game gives you control over all the aspects of your franchise, from your roster to your coaches, all the way down to your stadium and facilities. You also have to decide between your coach, team, and fans, who you want to be in good relations with, but winning games contributes to this goal as well. The fun does not stop there as you are actually allowed to play the games, unlike similar games created that would have you simulate these games. You take control of your offense in action-thrilling gameplay suited for a mouse or just your finger. Even if the game gets too easy, there are difficulties in the settings which make sure that you never have to worry about getting bored of the game. P.S I wouldn’t try extreme difficulty if you don’t have a highly rated team, the rage quit is bound to happen at that point.

So what are you waiting for? I played the game and found it to be pretty enjoyable. It serves as a great little channel, away from the stress of school, and onto an actual pleasurable challenge. I recommend this game to everyone, even if they don’t watch football because the game’s truly that fun. Just don’t be caught playing it in class though!
