An updated legend
This is the game that started it all...the true game that put us in charge of our favourite clubs so they could be run how we know it all’s believe it should be... this legend has been slightly updated by the true legend himself Kevin Toms. I have been waiting for a lifetime to once again get that fun back that this game once gave me on my rubber keyed ZX 28k Spectrum. This game had me hooked back then from the first match as my team under my new leadership thrashed Mansfield 5-0. To be able to be taken back to them memories by Mr Toms is priceless. I like that past and present players are now in the mix. You can buy any player as long as you have the money. You get generous loans to do so too. No more boring in-depth analysing which player to go for and then finding you out he don’t wanna play for you. Just simple skilled players 1-5, no training, no bigger clubs taking your best players... in fact no headaches or heartbreaks, just total addictive fun...remember when football was once actually fun? You can go through an entire season of league, FA cup and European football in less than 30 mins. You can even test yourself with skill levels 1-7 that will suit any demands. This is quiet simply a very straightforward, enjoying, pleasurable game that is 100%...10/10...pure gold!!! Thank you Kevin Toms
This is my first and perhaps most likely only review of KTF⭐️M, well ...Firstly i would like to give it ten stars but Apple only lets me give it only five stars! 😉 As before, just wanna' say many thanks for re-recreating this true masterpiece of a computer game which - like many other people have said, takes me back to the 80s. Having played hundreds of seasons already now, there is not a single flaw the game lacks ....only that a cassette is not required these days for this version! 😀 Besides that, would love to see a World Cup version created perhaps? Kev, (as it's World Cup year) and as the one you created for the 1990 World Cup way back then...
Anyways, keep up the good work and wish you the best of luck on this amazing revitalised adventure! ❤️👍🏼🙂
Developer Response ,
I really appreciate this review thank you!!! I
Fun for a while
I’ve had the game about a week and it’s been great fun see my team start from Division 4 and climb to top division and lift European cup and other cup along the way.
But when you reach top division l, I found the game started to lose appeal.
Also, while I accept the game on iPhone is to replicate the original. It has also exposed the flaws of the original and I would hope improvements are made.
Eg you can still win a game without a goalkeeper (unrealistic). You can still have much higher stats than an opponent but still get hammered.
It glitches occasionally. It also has the iPhone camera flash up in bottom right hand corner of screen for no apparent reason.
It could do with a timer while showing highlights. Also corners and pens would enhance viewing experience. And maybe a half time chance to make subs.
It doesn’t tell you which round of cup you are through too.
You can run out of money but still carry on playing, making losses each week but not getting into debt.
Edit : thanks for the response Kevin. I didn’t mean to be too critical. I think it’s a great game. I was merely trying to offer suggestions where I felt the game would benefit.
I would be interested if you made a companion app -which had more features and improvements. While I commend u for staying true to the original, I can’t help but feel (just like the game itself as moved on in the subsequent 35 years), that an enhancement here or there wouldn’t go amiss.
Developer Response ,
Hi Well firstly the game is always in steady improvement, but I wonder if you just played it on the basic skill level. There are seven skill levels. I have people playing hundreds of seasons. You are not correct about the goalkeeper, if you get yourself in that position one of the defenders is the goalkeeper and less effective. Hence your defence is weakened as it says. Bear in mind this is a by request from the public, renewal of the original game. I am not going to turn it into a different game, I can tell you many fans of the game want me to leave it as untouched as possible. The camera icon popping up is a minor remnant of a feature of capturing screenshots. This is still present on other platforms but Apple removed the API I was using. I must have missed removing one icon. No, I will not add a timer to the highlights. This is something I discussed with many players, it is not in the original. Nor were corners penalties etc. Along with half time and subs. Again you are talking about making a new game, I have discussed this with players and that is something I can do, I may well do, but not change this game, which has a lot of happy memories linked to it for players. You cannot run out of money but not get into debt. The debt is added and you can go bankrupt, which happens often.
So all in all, if it is not what you want, I am sorry, but it is keeping thousands of people very happy playing hundreds of seasons. The simplicity is a big plus to them. The pick up and easy play without complex decisions is the key. Edit: Yes, but that was what I was trying to communicate. There are thousands of players and I have had discussions with them about enhancing the game. The overriding response is that the faithfulness to the original must NOT be harmed. It is a retro- rewrite. It's not that I cannot do changes it is that I must not, for the support of the majority of players. The only way is a second app, which is where you are leading and that is the consensus with existing players of this re--creation. So I will not be changing this significantly for that reason. The years and players memories and nostalgia, are the reason, not the problem or lack of creativity for me!
