FM 2013

written by Johnny Karp

Great news for all football manager addicts that are addicted to their handheld devices as well: Football Manager 2013 Handheld is now available! Well, technically you won’t be able to play it until midnight local time tonight, but that’s just a few hours away. Read the rest of this post for screen shots of the game and the places you can buy it from.

FM 2013 Handheld not only includes up-to-date player and competition data, it also includes a number of gameplay enhancements. Here are the most significant new features:

  • An all-new player comparison module (allowing managers to compare potential recruits against existing squad members or existing squad members against one another).
  • Player photos (in licensed leagues)
  • An increase in the number of playable leagues (from 12 to 14)
  • A player form ‘hot list’
  • The facility to promote reserve team players to the first-team squad
  • Club captain selection
  • Improvements to the in-game news, media interaction and match engine
  • Twitter support for all devices

In addition to these gameplay enhancements, there have also been a number of improvements to the user interface; in particular, specific ‘skins’ have been developed for the most popular tablet devices and retina support has been added for high-end iOS devices.

For managers who like to accelerate their progress through the game, Football Manager Handheld 2013 allows, for the first time, the purchase of a number of ‘unlockable’ features, including the introduction to the club of a ‘sugar daddy’, the option to expand the club’s stadium, the ability to manage national teams from the beginning of the game and even taking a place on the board (giving the manager immunity from the dreaded sack). While all of these unlockables are available through the in-game store, many can also be ‘earned’ through in-game achievements as with previous iterations of the game.

Football Manager Handheld 2013 also sees the reappearance of the popular challenges (which first appeared in Football Manager Handheld 2012) and the introduction of a whole new challenge, ‘The Dangers of Capitalism’. Football Manager Handheld 2013 is available at midnight tonight (local time) through iTunes, Google Play and the Amazon App Store.

Never got into the mobile game. As tablets get more powerful & with the release of windows 8 it will be nice to have the full game on the move.

This is very cool, but it would be even cooler if you could run it in parallel with your career on the PC version :)
