Football Drama is a narrative and managerial game on football.
You are Rocco Galliano, the Marseillaise new manager of Calchester Assembled Football Club.
After the abrupt ending of your coaching career seven years ago, the hysterical attention of the press quickly faded. But struggling results by Calchester FC convinced Boris Aluminovitch, its billionaire president, to axe the previous beleaguered manager and give you a new chance.
Will your raucous shouts from the bench change the fate of the team? Will you find wiseness and karma leadership with the help of the Book of Changes? Will your shady past reach back to you and make you crumble?
Chances that you can make it through a full season are slim. Corruption, crime, drugs and romance are all paths that you may take - for better or worse.
This is the only football game where you may lose the championship and win the game!

- 18 dramatic weeks of procedural championship where you can be fired at any time
- Deck-building mechanics determined by life choices and game results
- Ridiculous cards about the craziest aspects of today's football
- Illustrated log of each of your matches
- Silly main commentator with his obligatory colourful sidekick

WILL NOT WORK ON iPad Mini 2, and iPad Mini 3, iPad Air 1, iPhone 5S.
- Fixed a bug in the Russian version that stopped the game at certain dialogues.
- Little improvements in the dialogues' language and in translations.
In this release we have made explicit the requirement that "Metal" (a technology) must be supported by your device; the former OS version requirement was already doing that, but it included some iPad Air models that do not support "Metal Shaders". Our new restricted requirement will not solve the problem for those iPad Air because formally they do support Metal but actually they do not work with Metal Shaders, and there is no support for the distinction. Sorry for that.

Could have been so much more
New release, I get it. But for $5 the game seems very unfinished. Managing a team, I thought, meant managing people, players trainers, hot dog sales and so on. Instead your players are reduced to dots. You don’t control tactics, instead you’re given cards that work seemingly at random.
I was really roooting for this game as I think other football management sims take themselves too seriously. I love the style and feel, I just think there could and should be way more substance without sacrificing any of the feel. Maybe it will get improvements but now the game is more of a depression sim than anything else.

I could go into all the reasons why I regret buying this, but I’ll spare myself the time and just use the most foundational reason: the commentary never changes. If you miss a shot, the sentences said by the commentators are the exact same every time. If you lose the ball, are driven backwards, make a foul, kick a corner, etc., the commentators say the exact same line for each scenario. Given that this game doesn’t have a whole lot going for it action-wise and is mostly a barebones strategy game that lies almost entirely on a simple fatigue meter and coin-toss mechanic about whether you will win versus your opponent in any particular scenario, this is just a bore overall. Wish I’d spent my $5 on something better, like a sandwich or a pound of apples. 2 stars because the game runs smoothly, it references the I Ching, and the color scheme and design are catchy. The rest of it is trash. I’m going to try and finish my season and then delete it.
Came into this game with high expectations, after finishing one play through the dialogue is the same after every game with the press and the owner of the club. The games are simple after you figure out the mechanics then it is easy to win the league. I feel that their is a lot of room to improve as the concept is very interesting but overall I was expecting more
