I wrote this elsewhere, I wonder what the next steps will be– “Here’s a little note for those of you who are wondering where this all came from. Autumn 2015 I suggested online I could re-create my original game for mobiles. I got such a supportive response to the idea I decided to go ahead. As I wrote the game I realised I still had the ability to create a game that was gripping, addictive, but easy to use. Like before the subtle complexity that gives the game its range and keeps you interested, does not show in the interface. It is quick and easy to play. On releasing it late last year I realised the benefit now, of doing updates, and I have done several since, as regular players will tell you, continuing to improve the game. Next is Spectrum style match highlights which will be a free addition and is an addition similar to the one I made to the original Football Manager in 1982. The difference this time? No loading times, plays on your mobile or laptop wherever you are, and I improve it step by step!”
A few comments from players of the game:
“Never played the original, but it doesn’t matter as this little gem of a game is truly superb. Better than other more complex football managers out there, especially the ones that require constant in-app purchases (I’m looking at you, Top Eleven). If you don’t care about fancy graphics, but pure entertainment, download it now! Plus the game’s author is promising exciting updates in a not so distant future!”
“I was up to 1am last night, still got that addictive quality”. – Alan S.
“Nostalgia Overload. Everything that made the original great is right here and it’s portable!” 5* – Davey S.
“Awesome Reminds me of playing this on my zx81 when me and my dad stayed up till midnight on Christmas day just to get promotion. Brill brings back so many memories. Thanks Mr Toms you are the Man” – Rob S.
“Back to childhood. Takes me right back to the 80s and long nights playing this on the ZX spectrum instead of doing homework.” – JPW
“Nostalgia at its best! Love the game, it takes me back about 30 years! Please remember to keep it simple. But as others mentioned a splash of colour would be nice or at least on option to play with a black background instead (for bedtime games).” 5* – Craig T.
“This is so playable and worth every single penny ! not bogged down with too many stats ,highly recommended !” – Johnny B.
“Fantasy Football Manager! Where else could you have Southend winning ‘The Cup’ and Dundee winning the European Cup! Absolute class and brings back memories of the old 48K Spectrum.” – Colin R.
The Colour up version – play in your team colours… Update (many more updates planned… ):
