Football Manager Mobile 2018 (iOS)
Sports 10 November 2017
Football Manager Mobile 2018 is a special edition of Football Manager 2018 developed by Sports Interactive, designed for smartphones and tablets. Unlike its original version, the game does not allow a player to experience 3D matches, features poorer database, and simplified interface. On the other hand, the game delivers all of the most important functions. This means that a player has to come up with tactics before each match, change the players, purchase and sell players, tend to the club’s budget, and use the help offered by the talent hunters. All this makes Football Manager Mobile 2018 a much more dynamic game, perfect for e.g. a break during the work; but it also offers many possibilities, which make the game one of the most advanced applications available on the market. The game has been published by Sega and is available at a much smaller price than Football Manager 2018 and Football Manager Touch 2018.
Football Manager Touch 2018 (iOS)
Sports Friday, 24 November 2017
A streamlined version of Football Manager 2018 that focuses strictly on team management and tactics, leaving out the remaining elements such as media, management, or the club’s infrastructure. Nonetheless, the game plays out almost the same as the previous installments of the series – our task is to lead the chosen team to victory. Our duties include team management, transfers, choice of tactics, and training. The chosen tactics can be modified before or during the match or simply left to the AI which will simulate the whole meet. In opposition to the standard edition, which offers access to over 600 thousand players, Football Manager Touch 2018 offers a streamlined database with 190 thousand players and 2500 clubs from all around the globe
NBA 2K18 (iOS)
Sports 20 September 2017
Another installment in the popular basketball video game series published annually by 2K Games. In NBA 2K18, players once again get at their disposal an elaborate basketball simulator revolving around the official NBA league. Apart from the teams currently playing in the league and the official USA and Australia national teams, the game delivers iconic teams from the past - not only those one might remember from the previous installments in the NBA 2K series, but also such teams as 1998-1999 New York Knicks and 2007-2008 Denver Nuggets. In NBA 2K18, one can play alone or in a company of other players. The game features several game modes - the most important one being MyCareer, in which one gets to create his own basketball player and follow his career of an NBA professional player. Moreover, this installment brings back such modes as MyGM and MyLeague, both of which allow a player to become a manager of a chosen team. To top it all, in NBA 2K18 there is also the MyTeam mode, in which one gets to assemble his dream team by collecting special cards.

Sports 04 November 2016
A simplified version of yet another edition of the most popular football manager simulation game by Sports Interactive, and a title half-way between Football Manager 2017 and its mobile edition, Football Manager Mobile 2017. In the game, we assume the role of a manager of one of more than 2,5 thousand football clubs from over 100 different leagues, trying to provide our team with both sports and financial successes. Football Manager Touch 2017 follows the path set by its predecessor and offers a much faster gameplay than that of the major installments of the series, at the same time being more complex than the mobile version. Such effect was achieved thanks to abandoning many business aspects of the gameplay and focusing mainly on transfers and match tactics. Compared to its predecessor, the new edition is characterized by a number of enhancements in graphics and mechanics as well as the previously unavailable multiplayer mode.

Aside from the basic options, allowing the player to engage in single- or multiplayer matches, the creators also included modes such as MyGM and MyLeague. These modes allow the player to take the reins of managing the team, deciding on the color of the outfits, or the logo visible on players’ shirts. The visuals are once again top notch, with an interesting feature in the form of a face recognition system, which allows the players to transfer their likeness to the virtual basketball court.

Morever, the player has to balance the budget and take care of PR matters. Football Manager Mobile’s strength are official licenses for clubs and footballers.

Sports 22 December 2011
A mobile ski jumping simulator with a number of managerial features. The game, developed by Vivid Games, allows us to create a custom player from scratch and lead him through the world of ski jumping. Our duties include buying equipment and planning a workout schedule, as well as taking part in further competitions, systematically increasing our statistics. The jumping itself is quite complicated – the player has to focus on each section (inrun, take-off, flight, and landing), as the judges grade the style of the jump following these guidelines. The jumps are also affected by wind and dynamic weather conditions. Unfortunately, the game lacks the official license of ski jumping events, which leaves us with placeholder names of all participants. We are left with appealing visuals and intuitive controls employing the touch controls or built-in gyroscope.
FIFA 16 Ultimate Team (iOS)

Moreover, the artificial intelligence was enhanced, the quality of graphics and animation was improved, and the characteristic celebrating after a footballer scores a goal was implemented. Contrary to its predecessor, the player can trade footballers and collectible cards.
PES 2017 -Pro Evolution Soccer- (iOS)
Sports 23 May 2017
A mobile version of a sports game Pro Evolution Soccer 2017. The edition released for smartphones and tablets using Android and iOS was based on the popular myClub mode. The player gathers cards featuring footballers and creates their team of dreams using them. The game gives an opportunity to take direct control of footballers during matches played against other users and while competing against the AI. The experience combines arcady elements with a bit of simulation and tactics. The application was created in cooperation with a few large football clubs, including FC Barcelona, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund. This allowed the developer to recreate the movement styles and appearances of top footballers with attention to detail (above all, Lionel Messi, Neymar, Luis Suarez, Andres Iniesta and Gerard Pique). The game's visuals constitute its another advantage, because PES 2017 -Pro Evoluton Soccer- is one of the best-looking games of this kind available for mobile devices.

Moreover, graphics was enhanced, becoming much more detailed - including things like the players’ shoes. You can also appreciate more detailed and better animated crowds.
