Love a good retro style game and stumbled upon this a few months ago and can NOT stop playing. The endless style of strategy to customize your team and to perform is just incredibly entertaining. It has the perfect mix of control and auto-play. Changing team colors, uniforms, names and locations is so much fun as well.

The developers are constantly updating the game and fixing bugs (love the new little tweaks you put into the menu music btw 🥳👍👏. I honestly have no qualms about this game whatsoever. I purchased the game and would honestly even pay $5 a month if there were more extensive options or additions to the game and I never purchase games... Such as maybe an easy gameplay for playing defense?! (Please please PLEASE tell me you guys have been beta testing some sort of defensive gameplay option). Or have the option to choose your own play in audibles or particular offensive strategy such as run heavy or pass heavy. I think adding some sort of game play strategy would hold a lot more weight in deciding an offensive or defensive coordinator. The last thing that I think would be awesome is enhancing trading. There is no option to try and barter with another team for a player with money or straight up trading one of your stars for money instead of just getting draft picks.

Anyways download this game if you haven’t, and then spend the dollar on it because it’s worth it. And developers please keep adding great options within this game!

Awesome game but could be improved!

I absolutely Love this game and I’ve had it now for about a year. Recently I paid the dollar for premium so I could make college teams which has made it really cool. However I have three things that I feel like could be improved. For one, defensive coverage doesn’t ever seem to cover the te and it means if you want to you have an easy 10-15 yard play almost whenever you want it. Number two, although you can change players names by paying the dollar, it would be nice if you were able to edit the character that they look like as well as their ratings. This way if the player chooses they can make whatever kind of players they want. Sort of like how you can build a player in madden. Last of all, it would be really cool if they made it where you can download other peoples saves. Like I said, I made college teams but it required a long time because I had to individually go in and edit every teams name and uniforms. It would help a lot if players could just download a version that other players have made. I’m not sure how easy this would be but I think it would improve the experience for sure. Overall this is my favorite football game on mobile, but these are things that I have thought of a lot while playing it over the last year and I definitely think that it would make the game more fun!

Amazing Game, Top Tier, just a few suggestions

This is one of the best mobile games I have ever played. Love the customization, you get to edit the player names, and every team’s name jerseys and location. Love the way the draft works and free agency, you can easily improve your team and rebuild your team with draft picks. Even the gameplay is great, it’s simple but also need skill in order to win.
So this is already a great game, but I have some suggestions that would make it even better. I wish you could play defense instead of it just simulating the defensive possessions. And I think kickoffs and punts should be playable too. You could introduce the punter position, or just have the kicker do the punting too. Hope there are plans to add these in the future.
Also, I think the star players should be league wide, not just your own team, so everyone would have stats on every team. This probably would take a lot of work, but I think it would definitely be worth it. You could see how the stats of your players compare to those around the league. And this would also open trading your picks for players on your own, instead of hoping a team offers you a player for a pick.
Also I hope you guys introduce other games like this in the future, like for other sports, like baseball. Retro Series (World Series)
