Default Football Manager Handheld 2012




Football Manager Handheld™ 2012 is designed specifically for iOS devices and allows you to take control of the greatest job on earth wherever you are and whenever you want. You decide who plays and who sits on the bench, you're in total control of tactics and substitutions as you follow the match live. YOU make the difference!



This year, as well as a host of new features, there is a completely new way of playing Football Manager! The brand new Challenge Mode, allows you to play short-term scenarios, which place you in a certain managerial situation with a clear challenge to achieve your goal….

Challenges:
“The Saviour Cometh” – Your team are in a relegation battle half way through the season. Can you take the reins and guide them to safety?
“Injury Crisis” – Your team are swamped with injury problems leading to most of your first team players being on the treatment table. Can you keep the results coming in and avoid getting the sack?
“Unrest at Home” – Your appointment as manager has left some senior players unhappy. How will you handle the egos? Can you avoid being sacked before the end of the season by still achieving the board's ambitions?
“The Invincibles” – You’ve gone on a long run without losing. Can you cement your place in history by going the full season unbeaten?

(All of these challenges can be played using any club in the game except for “The Saviour Cometh”, which is playable with any club in a league with relegation.)



What else is new?
Updated Leagues, Competitions & Transfers - for the 2011/12 season, plus the addition of the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League, and Blue Square Bet North & South.

Fully customisable tactics – Use drag and drop to create your own unique formations and perfect your tactics.

Apple TV Mirror Support – Playable in HD on a HD TV using the Apple TV Mirroring system for iPad 2 & iPhone 4s and a new generation Apple TV.

Star Players – Helps you to easily identify the three key players in other squads.

Social Networking – Send updates direct to friends directly from the game via Twitter and, for the first time, Facebook

Improved User Interface – Various updates with more graphical emphasis on newspaper items, sorting on shortlist page, visibility of future transfers, transfer window rules page and lots more.

Plus, improved match view, more media interaction, shareable shortlists and search filters and lots more!

I'm afraid we're not able to distribute our games in Germany for legal reasons, sorry.

Yes the game is a universal app - so it'll work in the appropriate way upon whatever device you install it upon (ie. iPad, iTouch etc.).

don't mind the sport they're about - these are two completely seperate game genres and football manager handheld is the most complex manager on the app store.

I really really appreciate this app, but it is too expensive for me. So I will put it in my wishlist!
