Tecmo Super Bowl is a classic football video game released in 1991 for the Sega Genesis and Mega Drive consoles. The game was developed and published by Tecmo, and was one of the first American football games on the 16-bit console. It was a huge success, selling over two million copies across all platforms.

The game featured 28 NFL teams from the 1990 season, including all 28 teams from the AFC and NFC divisions. Each team had their own roster of players with stats that matched their real-life counterparts. This allowed players to create their own fantasy match-ups between teams or even play as their favorite team against other teams. There were also several fictional teams that could be used, such as the “Dream Team” or “Tecmo All Stars”. The game also featured a full set of options to customize each team’s playbook and strategies.

Gameplay in Tecmo Super Bowl was relatively simple but still engaging. Players could choose from three different passing plays (long, medium, short) and four running plays (dive, sweep, pitchout and off-tackle). On defense players could choose from three different defensive sets (4-3, 3-4 or nickel) as well as several special plays such as goal line stands. In addition to this there were also several special features like instant replay which allowed players to review their last play or check out what happened during an opponent’s previous play.

The graphics in Tecmo Super Bowl were very good for its time with detailed player sprites and realistic stadiums, though they were not quite up to par with some other 16 bit titles released at the same time like Madden NFL 95 or NBA Jam: Tournament Edition. The sound effects were also decent but nothing particularly special though they did give an authentic feel to each game situation.

Tecmo Super Bowl is widely considered one of the best football games ever made for its time due to its addictive gameplay mechanics and deep customization options that allowed players to create unique teams with custom strategies tailored towards their style of play. Today it still has a cult following among retro gamers who enjoy playing it online through emulators or on original hardware via cartridges found online or through second hand stores
