Best Sim sports game I have ever played and I've played many different board and PC sports games. If you like stats and controlling your favorite team this game is for you.

Fun game *****

Great bball strategy game. The only issue is the slow simulation, but it is getting better. Please keep the upgrades going.

Best basketball game out there *****

This is a very good game. If you are more n to coaching and being the GM, this is definitely the game for you.

Great potential ****

I think this game has a great layout and easy to understand. I've changed all the team names and player names which did not take too long -thanks to a post on the forum of the production company. So far the AI has been really good. Three team trades are accurate and fun. The only reason I gave it a four star instead of five is because the simulation speed is pretty slow, particularly for games you are not watching or managing. But I recommend it to anybody who likes simulation sports games like iOOTP.

Hoops Manager includes:
- original ratings based on actual player performance
- advanced and standard statistics
- weekly, monthly and yearly awards
- free agency
- career progression and retirement
- salary cap (including Bird rights, etc)
- trades with up to 3 teams and including draft picks
- player level offensive and defensive strategy
- team level offensive and defensive formation and pace
- team depth charts
- power rankings
- draft lottery and draft
- All Star game
- full playoffs
- Training Camp
- News reports covering injuries, financials, top performances and awards
- advanced simulation actually plays the game rather than being generated as a composite of ratings and your coaching and strategy will make a difference
- shot chart for team and players during games
- games can be quick simmed (1-3 seconds per game), coached directly or simply watched, but the same engine is used regardless
- edit player and team names (our forum has user created lists for both the 13-14 and 14-15 seasons to help)

Hi guys

I am the developer of Hoops Manager and would like to introduce it to you.

Hoops Manager is a sports simulation app where you take control of an NBA franchise and try to lead it to victory. It has an advanced in game simulation as well as everything you would expect in the NBA (salary cap, bird rights, free agency, rookie draft, trades (of players and draft picks), awards and much more. I am very proud of the game and, if you like the genre of game, hope you will give it a try. It can be found on the App Store here.
A rather lengthy overview video can de found on you tube here.

:-) Thanks... I would love to build an NFL game (the old Front Page Sports Football is just about my favorite computer game ever), but am not sure I could come up with a sim engine to do it justice and still be fast enough to play on a mobile device... Oh well, maybe in a couple processor generations I will give it a go.

Hi all

I just wanted to let you know that based on a number of customer comments/ suggestions, I have added a new Fast Sim option to the latest version of Hoops Manager.

This option reduces Sim time by about 50%. This means, you can now sim games in 10-15 seconds instead of the 25-30 seconds- although the regular sim is still available to choose if desired.

Hey again

Wanted to let you know that a new patch for Hoops Manager is out which includes the new rosters for this season ('14-'15) as well as a completely rewritten fast sim which sims games in about 2 seconds, making long term GM game play much more enjoyable.

Thanks and hope you enjoy the update!

Hey there,

I'm interested and looking to probably test your game out. I'm a big fan of football manager and iOOTP and Basketball Dynasty Manager 14. Your game looks like it's another good text some sports game which I love.

I was wondering if you were open to the possibility of historic seasons and draft files. One of the biggest things that I feel that would be amazing is the chance to start at a point in time and recreate the past/future. Like what if the lakers never drafted Kobe. What if LeBron went to NY and not Miami. Etc etc.

IOOTP does it quite well and sells season packs, but I don't know if anyone else does. A basketball equivalent would be amazing. Any thoughts on that Rivi?
