With the FIFA World Cup going on in Russia right now everyone has football on the brain. The FIFA video game series has done tremendously well on consoles with chart-topping annual releases since the 90s. But what about mobile? What great football games are out on IOS that will tide you over until the next World Cup match?
We’ve found three games on the App Store that you should definitely check out. If you know of any other great football games post them in the comments below! So, let’s kick off with our first game.
I'm eight years into my soccer management career. There have been dizzying highs (two cup wins, back to back promotions, last second winners) and there have been shocking lows (a season where I was one game away from relegation, and an ongoing battle with the board to prove I'm worthy of the big leagues), but I've loved every single second. And that's what New Star Soccer Manager does, it makes every second count.
The game is currently in soft launch around the world, and I've been playing it for a couple of weeks. And when I say playing, I mean playing religiously. I've played until my eyes hurt, until my fully charged battery has died, I've charged it up, and it's died again. So the compulsion is definitely there, but even in this pre-release stage, there's a lot more to the game than that.
Dice City Soccer is a game that’s all about taking chances and rolling the dice. It’s not just a matter of luck though. Check out these tips to help you roll past the competition:
Team work makes the dream work
The basic idea of Dice City Soccer’s matches is that the team who rolls a higher set of three dice pushes down the field toward their opponent’s goal. With that in mind, it might seem like picking players that have a high probability of rolling high numbers is your best bet every time, but this strategy has its limits. Instead, it’s generally more effective to pair players that work well together so you can take advantage of abilities that can modify your rolls and your opponent’s rolls. Try pairing up players that activate abilities on the same numbers, and you’ll see your team working better than just rolling high numbers.
Football is back (or soccer, if you must), and if you're an Arsenal supporter like yours truly, there's already reason for the gnashing of teeth and the wringing of hands. The Premier League season has kicked off with its usual share of intrigue and excitement, and the league's official app has a brand new look for 2016-17 as well.
Along with the usual stats, updates, news, and videos, the free Premier League app has also incorporated the official fantasy football game of the Premier League into its features. Sponsored by EA Sports, the game is free to play and easy for anyone to join.
Let's walk through the steps you'll need to follow to get started with Fantasy Premier League before the season is too far gone.
Still on the fence about downloading this particular soccer/football manager? Check out our Top Eleven 2015 review!
Have you just downloaded Top Eleven 2015 - Be a Soccer Manager and you're not quite sure where to begin? Don’t worry, we’ll guide you through the basics so that you’ve got some idea when it comes to what to do next.
- It should be obvious, but sign in via Facebook. Besides being able to play alongside friends, you’re also safe in the knowledge that none of your progress is going to be lost. And Top Eleven 2015 is a lot more fun when competing with friends.
- Learn what everything in the menu does. Top Eleven 2015 doesn’t have the easiest of tutorials to follow.
- Squad is there for setting up formations and tactics, as well as moving players around. Examine each player’s abilities as it highlights where they’re strongest and weakest. Contemplate whether you want to be a more defensive or offensive team, and plan accordingly.
- Training is where you’ll spend a lot of time. You can pick different training regimes for each of your players and even focus on one in particular (for a price). There’s a choice of three different training methods: match practice is best for honing tactics and boosting team play, cardio is great for general fitness boosts, and stretching reduces the chance of your players picking up injuries.
- The game’s pretty dependent on time, with Fixtures telling you when your next match is. You get bonuses for being around to watch a match so try to do that whenever possible.
- Transfers can be reliant on time too, with live auctions running out all the time. This is more something to focus on when you’ve got money spare, though. Early on, just focus on the players you have.
- You can upgrade your Stadium through the option of the same name. That can lead to more fans, which also means more money. Plus you can upgrade the pitch to reduce the chance of injuries, as well as boost team morale.
