Football Manager, Games Design, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

What’s in my new Football Manager game?

I’ve been thinking about this. It would be good to talk about it a bit. Certainly it’s intended to be suited to the iPhone, and it’s got a bit of retro about it. It ties back to the original Football Manager game I wrote for the ZX81 and then Spectrum. So it’s not complicated! 🙂

But, that is what I want, that is how I want it to be. Of course, the tricky part is making it fun. That is where most of my effort goes. Another reason for keeping it simple is the iPhone itself. It’s small, the screen is small and you cannot get much on it. There is no keyboard and control needs to be straightforward. This is another area of design I am working on.

  1. I liked the ZX81 version. I wasn’t worried about the graphical representation of the game. Just sort the team out and see the results come in!

  2. in my opinion it has to be updated to some degree, realism etc. yet, without a doubt, it should definately be called ‘Kevin Toms Football Manager’ and use the graphics from the original version – can’t get more retro than that.

    and maybe even a special ‘unlock’ for the burnley side..!
