Football Manager Handheld 2014 is the last release of the Football Manager saga. Developed by SEGA, this installment has been released to the mobile platforms Android and iOS, after its success in the PC version. The game has been restyled to improve several features. For instance, the graphics and menu system are now much more intuitive. The new controls (drop-down and pop-up system) are easier, so you will have even more control than before. The transfer system has also been enhanced. Now, the transfer market reflects the real world in a more realistic way. Squad management and more intelligent bids from the managers of the AI are also present in this release.
Regarding the media, the interaction with reporters and the news is more important now. You will have to keep the press happy, but you will also have to keep your fans and specially your team happy as well, so you will have to be very careful. The post-match analysis has been improved too. Now, the feedback you get is more accurate, so you can see your team's weaknesses and strengths and improve your gameplay.
If you have an iOS device, you will be able to save your career on the Cloud thanks to the Cloud Save Functionality, and this way you can continue your game from where you left off on another iOS device. Android users will not have this feature, so if there is a change in device, the history of the player, that is career, will be lost.
Modes and gameplay
My Club Mode will allow you to create your own football club from scratch. You will have the possibility of choosing almost every aspect of it, from the name and the color of your team, to the kit and your players. You can recreate famous teams or create a new one with your family or friends and make it compete in any international competition or league.
When you start a new game in the classic mode, you will be free to choose any team from several countries. There is no limitation to just one country, so you will be able to go abroad to manage the teams of other countries. This option was only available for Android, but now iOS users can play teams from multiple nations too.
Take into account that players can be injured, depressed, or simply angry with you or the club
Take into account that players can be injured, depressed, or simply angry with you or the club and these facts will reflect on how they yield. If a player does not yield well, you will have to make substitutions. This way, you will have to listen to their request and make them play without going beyond their limitations, etc. If you have to make substitutions, you can check the improved Player Progression Tracking System, to monitor how your players progress. Here you will see lots of charts that show analytical data that demonstrates the decline or improvement in the skills of your players. Thus, you can see in a glance which players fit better for each match or which player must leave the team.
