Karza Football Manager: Written iPhone App Review
Picture yourself being honored with the responsibility of managing a football team that was once known for its prestigious sports history. Now it is up to you to help this team become a blast from the past and become famous once again with the help of Karza Football Manager from developer Karza Games This app is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), and iPad, and it also requires iOS 4.0 or later.
When Karza Football Manager initially loads, the user is prompted with 5 functions of the main menu screen: New Game, Continue (from where the user left off on the previous game), Archive, Options, and Credits. When the user selects a new game, they can choose either from pre-generated data or from a random generation of data. With the pre-generated data, the user can choose from 4 regions on “Karza Island”. These 4 regions are: Penalty Lands, Offside Plains, Ball Shire, and Eleven Hills. Within each 4 regions are additional towns to select from. From there the user can select the towns based on difficulty level and also rename the default name and club names. Each city/town details also give the user an idea of the fan support and the town social scene. As the user continues, they are prompted with the basis of the scenario they will be heading into such as the club history and fans’ emotional condition. From then on, the user gets to meet players via the roster and change up the playing strategies via “The Team” function. Once the user has selected everything to their desire they can then select to play and see how things work out.
Appearance and Layout:
The overall appearance of Karza Football Manager is simplistic and clean-cut. The actual game action is set as if you were watching the game online as a match, but with no actual physical game play action being shown (more of a word play by play). The play by play goes quickly and so do the goals. The background music is creative and entertaining, and even in a way, soothing. There are additional sound features such as the fans cheering, referees’ whistles blowing, and so on. The load up duration from each screen to screen can be a bit slow sometimes, but nothing to get anxious over.
As for how much detail is put into and featured in this app, the price being paid by the user is not such a bad deal. It’s a great app for sports fans, especially aficionados of soccer. It is also appealing to those who’ve always wanted to “manage” a team, and want to apply their individual strategies in what they think will make a team even “better”.
Karza Football Manager iPhone app requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review. The iPhone app reviews rating:
