    A solid representation of the original game that stands as a well done, albeit somewhat abbreviated (no online play, for example), version of the recent console release.

    Tecmo Bowl may have the soul of the classic series, but it lacks the technical execution to be as good as its ancestors.

    Overall, Tecmo Bowl for the iPhone and iTouch is a game I would not recommend to football fans looking for a Tecmo Bowl fix while on the go. The controlling players is troublesome and the lack of licensed players simply did not leave me with the same feeling I had when playing the game back in 1989. Also, when you consider the price ($7.99), there are simply better options available.

    It's too bad you couldn't combine the strengths of Madden on 3DS and this game while nixing their weaknesses. Then you'd have the perfect football game to play on the go. Unfortunately, Tecmo Bowl Throwback isn't that perfect game, or anywhere close to it.

    Tecmo Bowl Throwback isn't quite a classic game of pigskin.
