Unexpectedly, we have reached another September, and another football season (American football, to be clear) is all around us.If you are looking for an alternative to the PC version of Madden, you should definitely give Legend bowl have a look. It was launched in Early Access on Steam last week.
At first glance, Legend Bowl is a retro comeback to the 16-bit arcade style football game, with super fascinating pixel art and animation and a lively chip music soundtrack. But a lot of things happened in Legend Bowl, not just arcade action. Under all those Hail Mary passes and crunchy tackles, there is a real modern football simulation.
First, there is a lot of customization. Your player’s appearance, equipment, name, uniform, and even items such as earrings and gloves can be customized. You can even customize your coaching staff. There are exhibition games and all-season modes, as well as tournaments, and even training camps to train your team and practice your game. There are also weather such as rain, snow and fog, as well as a dynamic lighting system that provides a real atmosphere for the game. As I said when I first tried it in Early Access last year, Some amazing attention to detail In the legendary bowl-pixelated referees will even place the ball after each game, and the chain staff will come out to measure the first stop.
The controls feel simple, but involve considerable complexity. There are different types of tackles: direct forward shots, dive tackles and shoulder tackles, if you want to try to break the ball. When running with the ball, you can step over diving opponents and stiff defenders (you can even choose which arm to use). The more I play, the more I realize how many different options are built into the control. If you like games that are easy to learn but difficult to master, then this is suitable.
I highly recommend a controller, although you can also use a keyboard. Multiplayer PvP can be played locally or online via Steam remote playback.You can find Legendary Bowl on Steam.
