Football Star Manager

Match Highlights made in.. 4 countries!

The Match Highlights addition to the game, has been very much liked by players.

They were written over a few months and ended up being developed in 4 countries! I started them while I was still living in New Zealand. Then I made a trip to the UK. During that journey I was in Los Angeles for a few days. In my hotel room, I did more work on the Match Highlights.

Next was the UK, where I spent a couple of months in Devon. That time was focused on the Match Highlights, and layer by layer I was building the player intelligence and making it more fun.

Finally I relocated to Canada, where I now live, and the Match Highlights were completed, and further updated. So the

Match Highlights addition to Football Star* Manager… 

Built in New Zealand, U.S.A, England, and Canada! 🙂

Match Highlights and More

A lot has happened since my last post. I spent months working on the Match Highlights for the game. I knew this was an important upgrade which I did for free, and many, many players are enjoying this change. I like it myself, and with a V2.1 update made it even better with skilful, dribbling  runs and shots. All good.

I have much more I want to do yet. I have managed to keep myself aligned to maintaining the straightforward, no clutter gameplay. At the same time I am enhancing the game continually with updates. Each of these is prioritised on “Does it boost the gameplay, the fun, in the game?”.

Now, I am at the stage where I need some extra funding to keep this going, so I have started an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign to do that. Here it is.

Another things I have achieved is to align all 5 platforms of the game and give them all the Match Highlights. Android, iOS, Windows, Kindle Fire and Mac OS X

Great Escape, Skill Level 6.

I was playing as Torquay, Skill level 6, 2nd to highest skill level, but I was battling, bottom of the first division 2 games to go! Critical match against Norwich who are second from bottom.

Made it! Avoided relegation on a 2 goal goal difference advantage.

Season 17 on the way, a little money in the bank. No debts… 🙂 img_2009

 

 

Football Star Manager

Only me… :)

I am very happy that so many people are enjoying Football Star Manager and enjoying the memories it brings of the original Football Manager I wrote 34 years ago. That game, original Football Manager,  is static, a point in time, this isn’t. The joy of apps is updates. So far I have done 3 since release end of October 2016. I believe in continuous improvement.  I listen to constructive criticism and feature requests and each release will add more. I am working on the next release now, and the graphics option update, which will come later, is ongoing work too.

One constraint though. I will not harm the simple UI. – That is key to the pace and ease of play and fun. Adding detail that does not add to the game play will not happen! 🙂
