Whether you are a lifelong football fan, completely new to football, bored on your daily commute or if you just want to to play a fun video game, THIS GAME IS FOR EVERYBODY!

Follow the footsteps of the greatest coaches in history, call the right plays and lead your team to victory. Going for it on 4th down to ice the game? Trying an onside kick to start the 2nd half? A long touchdown bomb on 3rd and inches? You can do it all with Football Classics.

You can finally put an end to all the debating. Which is the greatest team in history, 1972 Miami or 2007 Boston? Which is the worst, 2008 Detroit or 2011 Indianapolis? Can the greatest offense from 2013 Denver beat the most dominant defense from 1985 Chicago? Find out with Football Classics.

The game comes with no monthly fees or in-app purchases, it's completely free and you will get all the updates. It currently includes all professional football teams from 1966 to 2019. I will add new teams in the coming years. If you feel the game needs some features, let me know and I will see how to add them.

If you are not familiar with the game of football, this app is a great way to get you started. You can complete a game in about 15 minutes. If you know football but you do not want to bother with setting protections, calling audibles or hot routes, this game was made for you. It is simple but yet challenging!

What could have been...

Love the old school football concept...but absolutely hate the whole tap for success thing. If you’re going to have another go at this, I’d suggest a allocation system instead. You start at 100% each drive, but must decide how much of your energy to allocate each play.

Grade: C ,

Fun little game!

This is a neat little game that offers offensive and defensive play calling and decent performance differentiation among teams.

On balance, I’ve found the run stats to be high in avg yds per run and the passing game to be a bit stingy with longer gainers. The AI can be off at times, such as the 2007 NYG passing fewer than 10x against the Patriots.

Nevertheless I gave this 5 stars because of the fun factor, fast game play, and choice of teams/seasons. If I keep sneaking in an occasional game before hitting the hay, that’s a pretty good endorsement!

Waste of money, should’ve looked with more detail before I bought. I knew it was simple with the description but this is absurd, you have no access to roster/strategy/formation/coverage or anything, just general play genre. And the tap system is insulting, it completely ruins the point of a football simulator and turns winning and losing into a glorified reflex test that just generates a football play depending on how high a number you get. Don’t waste your money.

Developer Response ,

I am very sorry you feel that way. The outcome of a play is actually decided by not only the tap but by a total of 6 factors: how good the offense is at running the play called, how good the defense is in defending that play, how many times that play had been called in that game already, how good the defense's play matches the offense's play call and finally the tap and a little bit of luck.
