If you wanted to play a game about street sweepers, you'd have a hard time finding one. However, football fans have within their reach a wide range of titles that cover all sorts of styles. The most common ones are about playing matches and winning tournaments with a few options to manage your team. But as of lately, we've also found other more original titles, based on football, but with other goals. That's the case of this Online Soccer Manager (OSM) for iPhone and iPad, in which you can take on the role of a manager that has to manage his team and keep the board of directors as happy as possible.
Want to manage your favorite football team?
With a cute design and big-headed players, this OSM is a game in which you can manage your favorite team trying to take it all the way to the top. You can choose between plenty of leagues from all over the world, but that standard game offers you these eight:
If you take a closer look, you'll see that you can choose between the first and second divisions and loads more options. Once you've chosen your team and signed your contract, you can start dealing and wheeling. Search for sponsors, refurbish the stadium, work on your tactics, sign new players, sell those you no longer want, choose a line-up, play offensively or defensively, give certain players specific roles, and improve your skills by practicing. Once you feel ready, you can face up to other teams, whether controlled by other online players or by the computer's AI. However, you won't be able to watch the matches as they are played automatically so you only have to focus on managing your team.
You can only handle one account per device. That means that you can't log out and play a different league. The only thing you can do is go to your phone's settings and delete the data. Thus, you'll be able to start all over again from scratch but with only one account.
Choose your club and manage absolutely everything: line-up, tactics, training sessions, signings, and plenty more.
