Every week here at 148Apps we award a game with the title of game of the week. We might pick the five games you can choose from, but it's up to you which of them walks away with the title. And this week it's been a pretty darn close-run thing. But we've worked out the numbers, and can now reveal the winner.
And that winner is the addictive, brilliant, and painfully moreish New Star Soccer Manager from New Star Games. I'd say I was surprised, but to be honest it's one of the best games I've played on my iPhone for a good long while.
There's plenty of reasons for that, but the main one is the way the game balances depth and accessibility. It's so easy to pick up and play, and so wonderfully designed, that a five minute session can easily turn into a bleary-eyed stumble to bed at 4am, clutching a digital trophy in your sweaty palms.
Even if you're not a fan of soccer, there's so much to do here that it's highly likely you're going to fall in love with the game anyway. That's thanks to the relationships you'll build up, the choices you'll need to make, and the excitement inherent in the short bursts of gameplay that break up the tactics.
Basically, what we're saying, is that you should definitely click this link and go and grab the game from the App Store right this second.
And if you click here, you'll be able to check out last week's game of the week. Oh, and make sure you come back on Thursday when we'll be pitting another five games against one another, and asking you to choose the best of them.
