Ratings and Reviews
Great! Just lacking customization
This game is just as fun as Retro Bow to play. Really enjoy the game play and being able to play across all the different leagues.
I really only have two issues with it.
The main one is that there is no customization. One of my favorite things in Retro Bowl was that you could completely edit every team’s name, colors, and even their jersey. You could also edit players names as well. That is not something you are able to do in Retro Goal, even after paying the $0.99 for the unlimited version. I think it should be added, because I would to be able to edit all the teams and the player names as well.
My other issue is that WAY too many yellow cards are given out to your players. Like I’m having 4-8 yellow cards given out every game, mostly to strikers and forwards, which makes NO sense. Attackers typically get the least fouls. And you don’t have control of this because it happens during the simulation part of game play. It causes an issue where I keep having my attackers suspended every other game almost. It is frustrating, but I enjoy playing the game so I get over it, but it would be much better if it didn’t happen as often. I’m fine with yellow cards be given out to my players, but in actual football matches, there’s normally 1-3 given out in a single game, not as many as I’m getting.
Amazing game, but not flawless
Retro Goal is a fantastic game. As the successor to Retro Bowl, I had high expectations for the game and in many ways, those expectations have been exceeded.
However, I do think that the switch from the credits system to the new currency system might not be the best change. The cost of upgrades, contract renewals, etc. seem disproportionately greater than they were in Retro Bowl, and it almost feels like you’re being almost forced to spend real life currency to keep your team afloat.. obviously this is a mobile game so in-game transactions will be important but in Retro Bowl it felt like they weren’t necessary, something I can’t say about Retro Goal.. this is exemplified by the fact that some players in game are only available for purchase with actual money (also it would be nice if the game didn’t practically penalise you for accepting a contract from another team by giving you terrible players and terrible facilities regardless, it doesn’t make sense that accepting a contract from Man Utd would give you awful players, forcing you to have to spend actual money to be able to compete in the Prem, this was also not an issue in Retro Bowl, and thus made it feel a bit more realistic/fair, not incentivising the spending of actual money). It would be nice to see a more balanced in game currency system, but outside of that, I think the game is exemplary, the mechanics are great and it’s really fun, great game.
Really nice game, needs some additions. MUST PLAY
JUST SO YOU KNOW: Offline and online game. Must pay for full version after 10 games (1$). Easy to learn controls. Simple and fun.
This is probably one of the best mobile football (soccer) games I have played on mobile, it is offline compatible which I LOVE a tip for new players, the game is free, but after 10 games you are forced to buy the full version (1$). Some aspects of the game confuse me such as the yellow flag above a player, does that mean they are offside? I’m not sure. If you could put some sort of dictionary for everything that would be really nice! Suggestions: I think it would be nice for new players to add an option to buy the unlimited version+ an amount of gold, for a reasonable price, so that people get get the full version AND some extra gold (or money or whatever the currency is 😂) But still have the option to buy just the full version. Another suggestion is; as the game becomes more popular and such, I think it would be very fun to be able to play defense, instead of it just saying “chance missed” whenever it goes past half field. Thank you for making this game, I love both this game and retro bowl. I hope the developers can make more of these games! If the developers could read this and respond to this I would be very happy! 😃 From, your #1 fan (probably not #1 but still up there)
