Tecmo Super Bowl (NES) game description
Tecmo Super Bowl is the follow-up to the NES football arcade/simulation Tecmo Bowl. While the basic gameplay of the original is intact, a host of new features and improvements have been added.
In the original NES Tecmo Bowl, each team had at least 20 players on its roster (21 if the kick returner wasn't a starter), with nine players for offense, nine players for defense, a kicker and a punter. In Tecmo Super Bowl, each roster has 30 different players. Each team has 11 defensive players who can be neither substituted nor injured. Each team has 17 offensive players, which includes 11 starters and six substitutes. At any given time, 11 players are on the field for each team, consistent with NFL rules. A kicker and a punter are also on the roster.
