App description: The 2015 football season is over, but you can still play REAL football with Pro Strategy Football, now 40% off! And be sure to watch for PSF 2016 next August!

New in 2015 - completely redesigned play calling UI! Stats and leaders for Defensive and Special Teams players! Much faster simulations! And various tweaks to improve the game experience.

Check out my other app, PSF 2015, if you'd rather have the flexibility in matching up any two teams at any time or playing the 2015 season over and over with the option of coaching any or all teams!

PSF Career is the franchise version of Pro Strategy Football, with the same great offensive and defensive options, but adds player management and multiple seasons!

In PSF Career, players age and can improve or start feeling their age as you progress through seasons. Use the full seven-round draft to bolster your team and fill games, and then shuffle your roster in the preseason!

Review any past season, see who led their divisions, scores each week, who won the championship, and who the season leaders were!

Or view any team's full history across all seasons! Select a team and see how it performed over time, then choose one of the seasons for more details! Or view every player who ever played on the team, and then see the player's details - when he started, when he retired, and his stats every season!

View Career Leaders for offensive, defensive, and special teams! Select any category and sort up or down! See which players are leading in passing rating or have the fewest (or most!) interceptions! Which defenders have the most fumble recoveries and which have scored the most touchdowns! Which kickers have the highest fieldgoal percentage!

And of course, all the same PSF coaching options are here, but you can decide how much you want to coach.

Do you want to let the AI simulate the regular season (don't worry, PSF simulations actually play every down of every game), and you just take over in the playoffs? No problem!

Or maybe you don't want to coach at all, so you can choose to let the AI simulate all games, and you take over for the draft and preseason adjustments. You can even let the AI simulate everything, if you just want to fly through a dozen seasons!

But if you do want to coach, and you want a *strategy* football game, PSF Career is the game where you win by knowing football, not by having the twitchiest fingers, a game where you're not limited to canned plays in someone else's playbook, but where you can tweak any part of your offense or defense every single down!

Deal with injuries, weather, bad luck (and good luck), and best of all, the computer never, ever cheats! If a play goes against you and you did everything right, welcome to real football!

Choose between Casual and Hard Core coaching. In Casual play, you tell your offensive coordinator to run inside or tell your defensive coordinator to defend against the short pass.

But in hard core play, you design every aspect of your call! On offense, you might call Pro Set, motion Z, HB counter left. On defense, you might call 4-3 over shift, man coverage, run focus, key on flow!

But don't worry, in game help is here! Every formation, play, coverage, everything has in game help describing the pros and cons! PSF is a coaching clinic!

PSF 2015 and PSF Career 2015 have thousands of Offensive Variations! Extensive Defensive Options! Formations, motion, line shifts, passing routes, play action, and much, much more!

Awesome. Good to see there's another installment. Still have last year's app installed. What's the differences between this year's and last year's?

Looks like I'm getting this again! I've enjoyed your series since 2013! I understand why you need to keep the versions separate as one of a solo year and this is a franchise version but I wonder if integrating it into one app would be better in the future with the user being able to choose which feature they want as solo 2015 vs franchise... This is how I believe most other sport games work.

Just curious not complaining!!!

So excited to see a new version!!!

I agree, and next year I'm combining them into one! I was going to do that this year, but ran out of time. It'll be much easier for me to support and much less confusing to consumers!

There are various small changes, but the main things are
  • - added stats and leaders for defense and special teams
  • - completely redesigned the play calling to be more intuitive
  • - rewrote game in C++ to run faster and also run on multiple platforms

Can you please explain what this version is missing that is in the non-career version?

Will roster editing ever be a thing for this?

This is a awesome game, roster editing would push it to legend status.

They have different focuses (btw, next year I'll combine them). The coaching options are the same, but here are the differences:
- in Career, you select one team and manage and coach that team across multiple seasons. You can't create exhibition games and can't coach other teams (other than choosing to coach your opponent against your team if you wish), but you can draft players, etc.

- in non-career, you don't have the draft, etc (because almost half my users don't want that). You can create exhibition games between any two teams and coach either one or both. You can also play a single season as much as you want, using the 2015 ratings. In this season play, you can coach any or all teams.

I hope that helps?

thanks

Yes, but I'm not sure when, and it'll definitely have to be on iOS first (having problems with text fields on Android). My goal is to have team and player editing there by Christmas if possible. This year, the best I can do is let you edit players and teams names in the game.

I'll keep you all posted on this - it's the biggest update I want to add this year.

I love this game, I have last year's version on my iPhone. I still would love to see some sort of audible system at the line of scrimmage.
Even if it was a simple "change focus to run/pass or "cancel blitz."
I think an audible system would make reading defenses/offenses a vital part of the game. This would add a whole new level of strategy as well as make the game even more interactive.
I am not a programmer, I have no idea what would be involved or how difficult adding this feature would be. But I think this would make a great game even more appealing to football fans. Just a thought. I posted a similar comment last year. Would love to see it in a future version.
Thanks for a fun game.
