Tecmo Super Bowl



  • Sport


Tecmo Super Bowl is an American Football video game developed by Tecmo. It was the first American Football video game to have official licensing by the National Football League and the National Football League Players association, allowing the game to use real NFL teams as well as real player names (taken from the 1990-1991 NFL season).
In this TAS, Arc attempts to play the shortest game of football by wasting the clock in every quarter, which is not that easy to do. Especially at the start of the 3rd quarter where the player has to hang on to a fumble recovery with a defensive player that cannot easily dodge tackles.
This movie doesn't aim to run up the score. Instead, it plays an entertaining game of American football by keeping the score close for drama and by utilizing a variety of wild plays with interceptions, fumbles, impossibly long passes, etc. Thus, the movie manipulates luck often.
In addition, the author exploits a number of bizarre bugs, such as CPU players tackling their own teammate, and a very unorthodox final play.
True tecmobowlers will enjoy the team choice and final score.
The baseline tab shows the default movie beating the game as fast as possible without any special conditions.
