FIFA'S Football Ultimate Team, also known as FUT, has popularized the adaptation of card games to the football universe. As you can imagine, you'll have to collect football player cards that show their attributes (speed, dribbling skills, shots, passes...) with different scores and you'll have to build a team to play against other users that will also have put together their own squads.
Build your team with cards and manage it on the pitch
However, the problem that many users find with this kind of game is that it doesn't offer any sort of simulation or arcade modes that are present in PES and FIFA, and to manage a squad you can already resort to other fantasy games. But here, in Soccer Manager Arena, you have the best of both worlds: on the one hand, there are over 100 cards with real-life players to build the most competitive team; on the other, those teams can play against each other in real-time top-down 2D arcade matches.
The simulator is very simple and can be handled with a single finger, so forget about being able to showboat all your skills and fancy moves that you may have learned in Pro Evolution Soccer or FIFA: this is more like Sensible Soccer (if you're getting old, you'll know what we mean). In other words: pure straightforward entertainment without any modern-life frustrations.
More entertaining than FUT by EA Sports.
This game that combines the sports management, arcade, and role-playing genres, comes along with the following features:
- Play against real-life players from all over the world in the real-time online mode.
- Unlock packs of cards and improve your team.
- Take a look at Arena TV and learn from what other users do.
- Compete on different football arenas or scenarios.
- Play against your friends.
To be able to play Soccer Manager on your PC, you'll have to search for the Android APK and run it with an emulator, as usual. On the other hand, forget about cheat and hacks: just learn to combine your cards and be the best on the pitch winning back the ball, passing, and shooting on goal.
