Being from the UK, I’m a big fan of soccer (or football as we call it), which means I have a particular liking for soccer manager simulation games and I was recently given the opportunity to review Soccer Player Manager by MobTwo.
Soccer Player Manager is your typical soccer management simulation type game, with the developer comparing akin to the popular Championship Manager type of games you’re probably familiar with. What sets this app apart is that you can play as the manager or as a player manager (of which the mode is coming soon).
With that said, Soccer Player Manager is in Beta, so certain features (like the player manager mode) is not yet active, but it does give a good indication of where the app is heading.
All the features you’d expect to find in a soccer management app are there – you can arrange your squad, transfer players in and out, manage finances, sign up sponsors, and assign team training. The game is fast-paced as well, with 3 league matches per day to give 19 matches total; 1 week is equal to 1 league season.
The graphics of Soccer Player Manager are very basic, but the underlying mechanics of the game are there. With some refinement to the graphics and presentation of some of the features, Soccer Player Manager stands a real chance of becoming a go-to app for soccer management simulation.
The app is supported by in-app purchases which can be used to refill your energy that gets depleted when playing games, but otherwise the app is easily free to play.
With that said, the game is still in development and is clearly in Beta; I was constantly reminded of this in the app with timeout errors and, as mentioned, features being unavailable. Soccer Player Manager is a good start, but definitely needs some work.
