Tecmo Minor League Football 2015 by buck and rewhawl
- Highspeed with new plays, modified physics engine, hacks, graphics, etc. -
This is Buck and Rewhawl's follow-up to their legendary TSB Semi-Pro. Work on this rom started in '12 and was recently revived/finished in here in 1st quarter '15. It's a lot of fun.
The theory behind the team creation on this rom is a "money" system to buy 4 types of players at each football position:
- bum (fewest amount of attributes available)
- gold (highest amount of attributes available)
I won't go into the details of the money/point system, but basically the point system allowed for just enough "money" to build a team of "bronzes". The faces used for each player indicate their "type". So, besides just seeing that they have increased attributes, you can tell who is who by looking at their picture on the player attribute page.
So Rewhawl and I each created two teams per division.
TML Team Writeup:
_____USA North Division_______________________________________
BOSTON BANG (buck)
Gold QB BEN BRUTAY did not only sign an exclusive antiperspirant deal with spray-can BRUT, he was a star running back that demanded he play QB, and the Boston Bang owner did not argue with him, because a "Tebow-type" player can really tear it up in the Minor Leagues. A pair of Silver safeties is all you have on D.
PRINCETON PLUMBERS (rewhawl)
Pipes, drains, and lead poisoning...When COM uses this team, I swear that they cheat. Somehow rewhawl programmed that. But the Plumbers have a solid running attack with a Silver OL blocking for Silver powerback RB HEAVY DEE and the quick Silver RB WAFFLE KUTTS, and speedy Silver QB EZ DROP. The Plumber defense is suspect, though, with a single Silver - RILB DUANE PIPE. Go lay some pipe tonight and hit it up in the warp zone with the Plumbers!
ALBANY AMOEBA (buck)
Defensive-minded Amoeba Head Coach Alvin Bucklander runs what he likes to call the "Amoeba" Defense...with a Gold RE JAZONN GWARN, Silver RILB MORT FRANCIS, and a pair of Silver CBs. Does it work? Not really. Their offense is grinding at it's best, so you better watch your players conditions to optimize your lineup....usually the Amoeba QB JJ COLTRANE just "chucks and prays" to WR BACARDI KING.
ANDOVER TROJANS (rewhawl)
The Trojans have a rich and famous running game - with RBs DEVIN CAMARO and SCOTTY POLO (both made the ALL STAR team). To beat this team, force them to pass. If you play your cards right, after the game, the Trojans might invite you to back the country club for a round of golf or whatever they do in Andover, USA.
_____USA South Division_______________________________________
TUPELO TIGERS (rewhawl)
Tupelo should be called Passing City, Mississippi. Gold QB APOLLO DREDD has two Silver WRs and a Silver TE to pass to. Defensively, the Tigers are soft, but they have the typical "rewhawl" safety configuration - Silver SS LIMA DREEMS. Roar.
LITTLE ROCK RUMPUS (buck)
Ever watch "Bangin in Little Rock"? These guys watch it every day, in real life. But guess what, they are the reining Minor League Champs (via a COM v COM season!). Rumpus has a solid running game with two Silver RBs and a Silver WR, a balanced defense, and luck on their side.
NEWPORT HOUNDS (buck)
RB TRIG IVERSON and the Hounds sure can hit. This team modeled itself after teams in the Semi Pro "HP" Division. The Hounds sniff out opposing offenses with their hard-hitting "All-Bronze" LBs and Silver SS DUKE "Take a whiff of my pantleg" ZALZA. Look to capitalize with the offense's high HP. WOOF WOOF.
DAYTONA DARTS (rewhawl)
The Darts are aptly named - because speed does kill. Just try and contain this pair of Silver RBs. Low HP team overall, but they sure can turn some heads! The Darts have the hottest cheerleaders, according to calendar sales. Start Your Engines!
_____USA Middle Division_______________________________________
SAGINAW SAILORS (rewhawl)
Is your boat out of gas? Call Gold QB CAPN.AHAB. Also call on the pair Gold CBs for air-defense support. However, the Sailors underachieved in the official COM v COM TML season. But, the Love Boat soon will be making another run!
WICHITA CRYPTS (buck)
The Crypts balanced offense (Silver QB and Silver RB) should keep you on the field and their pair of Silver CBs were hand-picked to stop division rival Saginaw. Sport the correct colors in the right 'hoods or you're gonna find yourself all up in a Wichita crypt.
BOISE BRAINIACS (rewhawl)
Rumor is, you must pass a rigorous football intelligence test to play on this team, but common sense will tell you otherwise. The Brainiacs have a good running game, altough low on HP, and a good defense - TML sack leader LILB PROFESSOR ABACUS and SS HOOT BEET have you covered. (Side Note: Deadly RB BENSON BURNER is the only player in the TML that has his own openly discussed harem of cheerleaders, you can see them sometimes at the halftime show, they are known as "Benson's Bitches".)
OMAHA HARD (buck)
I've heard people say that Omaha is a "hard" city with lots of violence and gangs. But everybody I've met from there is pretty nice and doughy. The Hard has lots of Silver to help you on offense, and lots of bums on defense. Look to Gold WR RELAMPAGO BLANCO on offense and SS PABLO LUCKY on defense. Take the snap and get your Hard on.
_____USA West Division_______________________________________
TUCSON TROUBLE (buck)
Tucson can run a lot of game offensively, thanks to speedy Silver QB ROD BURNS, although he is low on PS and the offense is low on HP. Good returners and a decent defense. Some players of the Trouble can be seen frequenting pawn shops and thrift stores when they visit a city for a football game.
SAN FERNANDO 69ERS (buck)
Sex Sells. So does a ridiculous passing offense. Gold QB JOE CRULLE, Gold WR MOSES RANDALL, and a Silver WR . On defense, all the 69ers have is the admitted multiple PED-user Gold RILB PERCYOUS "Randy" EWING (and you thought Viagra commercials only featured hot milfs...) Due to big-money commercial conflicts, EWING'S suspension was postponed until next season. '69 Dude.
MODESTO MATADORS (rewhawl)
Somehow..this defensively stacked (and offensively challenged due to entire offense being Bums) team manages to kick ass. Lots of Silver Torero's on the Matodors defense. You better bring your big guns to this BULLFIGHT.
KLONDIKE DIGGERS (rewhawl)
What a RUSH - Injury-prone Gold RB TINK NUGGETS is a mountain of a man for the Diggers. Defensively the Diggers are well-balanced, with Silver sprinkled all over. Get your hopes up and get down with Diggers Fever!
_____INTERNATIONAL 1 Division_______________________________________
BANGKOK PACHYDERMS (rewhawl)
One night in Bangkok makes a civil engineer shit his pants. But check out this impressive offensive POWERHOUSE, led by League-Leading ALL-STAR Gold QB PON PHA.NOM. This team has a Gold TE - TONGSAK BO.KONG. The Pach are a pretty solid team, if not light on HP. Jump on the Pachyderm tok tok, today!
NEW ZEALAND ALL SHEEP (rewhawl)
These guys think that The Rugby Championship's All-Blacks rugby team are a squad of pussies, so they started a football team. They are tough bastards. Hard hitting OL and RBs, and a solid defense led by the brute Gold FS HUNAPO AATA. Just don't try to get into a grappling match with the All Sheep, okay mate?
HAVANA COCHINOS (buck)
Tener un cigarro, mi amigo! Defense wins championships? Is Pink the new Black? Not if MITO TIO RICO is your QB and your entire offense is Bums. These self-proclaimed "communist pigs" appear to be the international version of the Modesto Matadors. Word on the TML Street is that the Cochinos have been making their way into the hearts of all Americans.
OSAKA OKUYUKI (buck)
KONNICHIWA, くそったれ. Gold QB AKIO HIKOUSHI and Gold WR HAI AKUMA can make the "perfect" connection - can you figure it out? (or will you ever learn to stop it, rewhawl)? Only trouble is, can Gold FS TOSHIRO MIFUNE single-handedly take care of this Okuyuki defense?
_____Z-Plane 1 Division_______________________________________
PERRY MEDICS (rewhawl)
Due to record profits and no end of profits in sight (thanks, ACA), a few doctors, x-ray techs, and ER guys started a football team! The Medics are a big time passing team with TWO Gold WRs MORPHINE DRIP and HYPO DERMIC! One weird thing about the Medics is that their cheerleaders don't wear panties...maybe it's the N2O?
WTML SLAMMERS (rewhawl)
HEYYO! Go back in time and get back to your Pro Wrestling roots with the SLAMMERS!!! A team of tough fellas, created back before QB MACHO MAN died, so this is the only TML rom with him (and wife) on it! RB ROWDY RODDY is ready to go up the gut. Check the Slammers out!
PAWTUCKET PLAYERS (buck)
GI Joe and Cobra (from the comic book, not the wack cartoon) worked out a compromise deal with the New World Order and started a football team together. Gold RB SNAKE EYES is who you think he is. Gold CB STORM SHADOW can chop a lot of game. Larry Hama would be proud of the Players.
GRIT CREEK (buck)
Not many people know much about Grit Creek, because their games are seldom televised. But they are actually pretty balanced. Big-Gun QB NOEL PADDLE and the gritty, Gold ROLB STRONG JOHNSON lead their sides of the ball. Don't get stuck up the Creek!
_____International 2 Division_______________________________________
VANCOUVER MOUVERS (buck)
This team has so much potential, with a Gold QB BIRDSONG POW.WOW and Silver RB BO PUMP and SS MEL LAVENDER - even Gold ROLB MAGNAVOX KRAID!...but has their prodigious consumption of weed and alcohol hurt them? You can decide that. The Mouvers were a disappointment in the official TML COM v COM season. Mouve it, boyee.
READING RAINBOW (buck)
Most of the guys on this Birkshire football team are ex/wannabe-rugby players. Pretty solid, overall. Pair of Silver RBs, and a Gold CB Winston Rotton. Unless you can drink like a fish and don't mind spitting out a tooth from time to time, it might be best to avoid trying to grapple with the Rainbow.
MARSAILLE MIMES (rewhawl)
No doubt they're suave, but just don't ask these French guys any questions. You will only receive a puzzled stare behind an invisible pane of glass. The quick, Silver QB PIERRE HUGO and Gold RB BERTRAND PLASTIQUE are hard to stop and that Mimes defense is deceptively fast. . . ... . . . .. .. . . ... .. .. . . . .
ABERDEEN CLAN (rewhawl)
You Braveheart....I Braveheart. This team is composed mostly of Bronzes, but with Gold RILB BRUCE BRAVEHEART. It really hurts to catch these guys when they're JUICED. The Clan are classic over-achievers.
_____Z-Plane 2 Division_______________________________________
LUCK MOUNTAIN (buck)
It is well known that Gold RB KING SCHMIDT can do it all (and on offense, he MUST do it all)...but how long can this guy stay "king of the mountain"? Built around a tough Defense, with Dual Silver ILBs and Dual Silver Safeties, Luck Mountain was the runner up in the official TML COM v COM season.
DOWNTOWN STABLE (rewhawl)
This team is beyond acceptable, even for adults. The Stable is the only Minor League team with women on it (besides QB MISS ELIZABETH on the WTML Slammers). But these aren't your typical women - Drugs, weapons, attitudes, harlotry, etc. Gold QB ICEBURG SLIM leads his offense and Gold FS CROSSTOWN RIVAL leads the defense . Pimpin aint easy, but it sure is fun!
KNOTTY PINES (rewhawl)
Like Grit Creek, this team goes barely noticed, because of poor media coverage. And like Grit Creek, they are more than capable of kicking your ass. Silver QB and a pair of Silver WRs. The Pines also have a tough defensive featuring their "All-Silver" secondary! Experience the deep, musky defensive aroma along with a sweet, fruity passing-game odor.
DEATH VALLEY (buck)
Due to conditioning in the extreme environments, TOUGHNESS becomes 2nd nature. So, these Death Valley football players are not scared of anything, except buzzards. Their defensive "bookends" Gold ROLB PURELL WHITE and Gold LOLB PETE DEATHRAGE knock a lot of balls loose and people out of games. Unfortunately, the Valley's heavy-weight Silver QB MACARONEE SANDS just can't quite bring this offense to life. AAAHHHHGGGHHH!
