Shots of the New Tecmo Bowl for the DS

ScuttleMonkey posted more than 6 years ago | from the bo-knows-jack dept.

Classic Games (Games) 29

Kotaku has a bunch of screenshots of the new Tecmo Bowl game for the Nintendo DS. Purists shouldn't be disappointed with this game, as it seems (relatively) true to form. The main departure that seems to be drawing the ire of play testers is the absence of Bo. I guess he doesn't know football after all.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

I was about to ask if Bo was still invincible in the new version, and am sad to find out he will not be included in the game.

P.S. you misspelled "absence"

I came here just to say this. No Bo = no buy.

This was the best football game ever. It really captured everything that's fun about the game, and it's simple enough that you don't have to be able to move the joystick 30 different ways at the same time.

I'm going to buy a DS just for this game.

I don't remember any "getting drunk in the parking lot" sequence in Tecmo bowl.

I guess us BYU fans get a different perspective on the game. ;)

That was the live action portion. I remember in college we'd get drunk and have Tecmo Bowl tourneys.

I thought the fun part in football was spending 20 minutes trying to decide if a player "made a football move" before dropping the ball. I really do enjoy the insane wrangling over goofy rules in football; especially with instant replay. Seriously though, Super Tecmo Bowl was great fun, but it really wasn't great football. Passing was especially dumbed down, and the AI was hilarious. If you got into the open you could turn the whole field into a ballet by running in circles. Oh, and the game was frustrating too, with AI that cheated right in your face. I can't remember how many times I almost threw my controller when an AI runningback suddenly started running twice as fast as I could right when I tried to tackle him. They can leave that part out of the DS version.

Right franchise, wrong game. Tecmo Super Bowl is the 2nd game in the series. Tecmo Bowl [wikipedia.org] is the first, which I believe this is a remake of.

I cheated right back. On offense, with whatever passing play was the 49ers' #3 you could throw to the tight end right when he starts to turn into his route and the defender will rarely be able to stop it. On defense, you can sneak the nose tackle down a pixel as you charge and he'll walk right by the center. At the end of the season it came down to the computer's cheating 50-mile-per-hour rushing touchdowns versus my cheating tight end touchdown drives and safeties.

Eh. I was a fan of Tecmo Super Bowl. This looks like it's a remake of the original Tecmo Bowl, which was good, but only had limited teams and stats and stuff. I'm waiting for TSB so I can run Barry Sanders up and down the field a few times, watch people bounce of Christian Okeyea(sp? the FB from the Chiefs), and block extra points with LT.

I hope this game does well so they release the Super Bowl version. *fingers crossed*

This is the super bowl version, hence the reference to bo jackson not being in the game. I made damn sure that it was tecmo super bowl and not tecmo bowl.

YES! I loved both games but Super was definitely an improvement. How about a little Run n Shoot with Warren Moon at the wheel? ; - )

You can have your moon; I believe Messrs. Montana, Rice and Taylor will again be my weapon(s) of choice.

Link to a vid of a couple plays being run. The audio sounds surprisingly good considering it's coming from a DS.

Other than that, it looks exactly like Tecmo Bowl, bring it on!

To my ears, the music seems like it was done on a Genesis sound chip.

Not that that's a bad thing.

HellProphet (1045990) | more than 6 years ago | (#23590363)

I wonder if I was the only one to go through and change every team's play book so that they ran the slowest forming plays. The end result was at the end of the season Jerry Ball from Detroit (team I played) ended up with 82 sacks in a season.

Sounds awesome! (1)

Curien (267780) | more than 6 years ago | (#23590693)

I still play Tecmo Bowl on an almost daily basis, thanks to FCEU. When my daughter (12 months old) is really upset, I just fire up the game and she's grinning in seconds. She's even figured out (much to my pride and frustration) which keys make the players move.

What copier did you use to copy your Tecmo Bowl Game Pak to your PC?

Re:Sounds awesome! (1)

Curien (267780) | more than 6 years ago | (#23590747)

I'll have to ask the guy I downloaded it from.

The lingo... (2, Insightful)

Notquitecajun (1073646) | more than 6 years ago | (#23591203)

The second-greatest thing? The addition of the phrase "We picked their play!" into football lingo.

Hah, no Bo (1)

Pluvius (734915) | more than 6 years ago | (#23592605)

The main departure that seems to be drawing the ire of play testers is the absence of Bo.

Yeah, I can see a lot of cheaters-in-all-but-name being pissed at that, at least one of whom has replied to this article.

BTW, while the remake is called Tecmo Bowl, it's a remake of Tecmo Super Bowl. Tecmo Bowl was a different game and not nearly as fun.
