Motorsport Manager $4.99 - $2.99

iTunes link
I think that should be the price drop in the US. It's just gone from £2.99 to £1.99 in the UK so you may have to wait a little.

Paid the full $5 with absolutely no regrets, so I'm slightly saddened to see this go on sale so soon, assuming the sale is tied to poor sales. On the bright side, hopefully this sale mean more people will get to play this gem of a management game.

Well it doesn't seem to be on sale anymore if that makes you feel better. Looks like it was only planned to be on sale for a few hours or it was an accident.

Not on sale in Ireland, not yet at least. Still Ä4.49. Will consider it if it drops here, motorsport ins't my cuppa really. But I do like management sims.

TA REVIEW 4.5/5 http://toucharcade.com/2014/08/28/mo...anager-review/
"Motorsport Manager offers bribes in the form of in-game currency in exchange for sharing things. Considering the depth and breadth of creepiness on the app store, itís a relatively unobtrusive and victimless promotional technique, but there we are. The most significant charge I would level against the game is related to interface design: in splitting the difference between designing for phones and tablets, elements seem excessively spread out on tablets, but cramped on phones. Itís not a major impediment to usability, but itís noticeable.

These minor gripes are easily ignored when itís the middle of a tournament series, the team is hemorrhaging money and a clutch podium is needed to get back in the black. That series of approachable choices and their many axes and intersections is itself an engine tuned to create drama. As someone with no particular affinity for motorsport or management, I can nevertheless offer a very strong recommendation for Motorsport Manager."

148 Review 4/5 http://www.148apps.com/reviews/motor...anager-review/
"It truly feels like a substantial undertaking, so the payoff that comes from success feels earned. Although thereís no doubt that Motorsport Manager is unpredictable, with races sometimes taking a nosedive out of nowhere. While it certainly keeps players on their toes, it can be frustrating.

However, once players have developed an effective racing strategy, and after throwing some money at research and development, theyíll definitely see improvements in their performance. As someone who would hardly call himself a fan of management simulation/strategy games, I found Motorsport Manager to be an accessible, comprehensive, and compelling experience."

PT Review 5/5 http://www.pockettactics.com/reviews...sport-manager/
"At first youíll notice that all of the cars in a race finish when the car on the lead lap does, even if theyíre not on it. Then youíll fire a driver and note that he doesnít go get a job with your rivals, he just vanishes into the ether. Competitors donít even stay between seasons ó if you opt to stay for a second year competing in the American Racing League, youíll see all new teams and faces there. Motorsport Manager is a Truman Show, and thatís a shame, because half of what makes auto racing so exciting is the rivalries that build up between the owners, drivers, and teams.

Even the relatively uninteresting research-and-development side of things doesnít detract from how exciting the races are. If you cut Christian West Iím pretty sure petrol comes pouring out. The game generously holds your hand with frequent advice pop-ups, so non-fans need not stay away, but auto racing enthusiasts will really appreciate Westís eye for detail. His passion for auto racing is everywhere in this game, and Motorsport Manager is quite possibly the best sports sim on mobile as a result."

PG Review 9/10 http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/iPad/...ew.asp?c=61192
"There are contracts to negotiate, dilemmas to navigate through, and plenty to keep your fingers busy in short-burst play throughs.

Things do get a little repetitive, but there's a huge game to work your way through here, and if it gets its claws into you it's unlikely to let go for a good long while.

Motorsport Manager manages to walk the line between number-juggling sims and the softer end of the spectrum, and in doing so creates a strategy game that almost anyone can have a crack at."

PS Review 8/10 http://pixelsport.co.uk/2014/08/30/r...r-iphone-ipad/
"it's a lot of fun and its campaign, although a bit one-dimensional, does have some lasting appeal. Its light-hearted take on the world of motorsport, ease of use and great visuals offer wide appeal and crucially, it has that Ďone more raceí feel to it. Itís more Football Chairman than Football Manager, but fans of both will find much to enjoy."
