About This File

Amidst the sea of Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 releases, here's a ROM release for the original of the series, Tecmo Bowl 2017. 

 

This game contains all 32 NFL teams (expanded from 12).  There is also a feature that allows you to choose your CPU opponent, as opposed to originally letting the CPU choose, in Exhibition mode.

 

Rosters are based 99% off of depth charts provided by NFL.com and CBSSports.com, with a few exceptions taking into consideration suspensions (Tom Brady, Le'veon Bell) and other factors.  Statistics and ratings are based on those provided by Pro-Football-Reference.com.

 

A special thanks goes out to TheFes75 and TecmoTurd for their assistance.

 

In keeping with tradition, the original Tecmo Bowl (and Tecmo Super Bowl) were notorious for their "beasts," like Bo Jackson, Christian Okoye, QB Eagles, Mike Singletary, Jerry Rice, and more.  Well, Tecmo Bowl 2017 is no exception.  Some of the "beasts" (based on career bodies of work and current work) included in this ROM are:

RB - Adrian Peterson, Chris Johnson

WR - Larry Fitzgerald, Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham

DB - Darrelle Revis

DE/LB - James Harrison, JJ Watt, Ndamukong Suh

KR - Devin Hester

 

Growing up, I preferred this version of Tecmo Bowl to Tecmo Super Bowl, despite the lack of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the game.  To this day, I prefer Tecmo Bowl to Tecmo Super Bowl for the sheer sit-down-and-play factor.

 

If there's anything glaring that I missed, please bring it to my attention.  Enjoy!

Huge oversight on my part.  When working on another project (using this one as my base) I noticed that San Francisco and Seattle's road uniforms made them look like ghosts, complete with pasty white skin and black uniforms.  Some numbers were mistakenly swapped around.  This problem has been fixed.
