  • TBORG releases Tecmo Super Bowl 2021 Post Season edition


    In a 'better late than never' release, the 13th annual Tecmbowl.org Tecmo Super Bowl edition appears for the first time as a post-season release.  While the rom itself features the typical OG-type ratings you've come to expect, some changes of note have been in updating the graphics and addressing a fairly unnoticed but longstanding issue.

    There are a few complex helmets that have their own design pattern like the Bengals and the Rams.  When the Jaguars came out with their gradient style helmet, the Rams pattern was repurposed for the Jags and the Rams helmet was drawn with the constraints used for most helmets.  As you can see that while the 2005 version of the Rams' helmet does a good job of representing the helmet, it's at the cost of reducing the size of the Rams' horn.

    With the Rams unveiling a new helmet and with the Jaguars dropping the gradient back in 2018, this offseason proved to be an opportune time to revert the special design pattern back to the Rams.

    What you'll find is a design that attempts to mimic the symmetrical half circle curve of today's Ram helmet while expanding back out towards the edges.

    One other longstanding yet seemingly unnoticed issue was the trivial detail of individual player positions not being remapped.  For example, the 2020 Jaguars were updated to have a starting lineup that had 1 RB and 3 WRs.  However, if you drilled down into individual players you'd find that it would pull up positions that didn't match. Thus, WR Dede Westbrook appears as a RB.  This year the players are mapped correctly.

    Look for the 14th release of this rom to once again be released in the preseason a few days before the first Thursday kickoff.
