Great amount of depth, simple, and addictive

I'm not one to leave reviews for apps but I have been playing this game nonstop for weeks if not months at this point! This is an incredibly well-thought game, comparable to the likes of Football Manager or career mode in FIFA. The gameplay is simple yet engaging, I never feel like it's a drag to play through the games. Since it's a mobile game, the pick-up-and-play aspect is really convenient which is why I think I've been so immersed in this app. The only complaint I have is the aggressive marketing of in-app purchase. However, I've had this app since July and I've never bought in-game currency and I'm doing just fine. I will admit I've watched a lot of ads because of this app. Ads are everywhere, after a game you can expect to see an ad. However, I rarely play more than one game at a time, so realistically it's not too annoying. By watching an ad you can increase your players' energy. Usually I hate this in mobile games, but I watch a bunch of ads anyway because I wanna support the creators. I just play them in the background while I listen to music. So again, great app and an amazing upgrade to the original New Star Soccer!

Exciting Ideas ,

Solid and excited to see the future

This game is truly remarkable when it comes to its ability to combine fun and challenging gameplay with an in depth simulation of managing a football club. This alone makes this game an amazing experience for me the only things that could Improve this game are.
1. Having the ability to manage a national team.
2. More customization of club kits and crest etc.
3. Manager transfers or the ability to manage another team.
Also an extra thing that could be interesting would be the the ability to select a location or city that your team plays in and have certain rival teams which can correspond (teams from the same city or area or maybe a team who tend to beat you ) these rival teams would serve as extra objectives and could be used to make playing in the lower leagues in the beginning of the game more interesting as playing a rival team could mean could mean losing or gaining a large amount of trust from the fans or board. This same affect could be used if I player was bought from or sold to a rival club.

Having a bit of an issue

New Star Manager is one of the best sports manager games out there. Every aspect of the app is good. The you you buy a player or staff member is good. The way you upgrade a player of staff member is good. The way you upgrade a building is not the best because it gets very expensive very quickly, but other than that I like it. The only thing I will criticize is the way you play the actual games. I don’t like how you only play short clips of the game, rather than the whole thing. And I guess I get how it’s supposed to be more of a managing game than a player game, but it’s just something to think about.

My main issue is that starting yesterday, when I open the app within a few seconds a white screen comes up, and it doesn’t go away. I’m not sure if it has to do with the update that happened yesterday, or something else. Either way I can’t play the game, and it’s driving me crazy. This game is definitely my favorite game at the moment, and now I can’t play it at all. Please do something about this as soon as possible. For now I am downloading another manager game to play, so that should give you some encouragement to fix it.
