App description: Out of the Park Baseball, the most realistic and best-selling baseball management game ever created, is finally available for iOS!

"With a great menu system driving the entire game, excellent AI, and the ability to micro-manage almost everything you could dream of in a sports game, it's hard to want anything else of a mobile baseball management sim." (Touch Arcade) "iOOTP is so addicting that a surgeon general's warning should accompany its download." - 8.5/10 Great! (Operationsports.com)
"There is really no other iPhone baseball game that is like iOOTP." - 5 Stars! (iPhoneGamerBlog.com)
"iOOTP Baseball 2011 is a no-brainer for iPhone-owning baseball fans. This is easily the best text-based sports sim available for the iOS platform." (Examiner.com)
"You can manage your favorite team the way you want." (148Apps.com)

PLEASE NOTE: iOOTP Baseball 2011 is optimized for 3rd and 4th generation iPhones and iPod Touch or newer (or iPad first/second generation). You can play it on an iPhone 3G or iPod Touch second generation, but your experience might not be optimal.

iOOTP Baseball 2011 features a living world that uses the same robust simulation engine found in Out of the Park Baseball for Mac and PC, the best-selling and best-rated baseball management game of all time. Out of the Park Baseball is the second-highest-rated PC game ever on Metacritic and also received the PC Gamer Sports Game of the Year Award.

iOOTP Baseball offers three gameplay modes:

- Major Leagues: Choose a team and play out the 2011 season. Will San Francisco successfully defend their 2010 championship? Can Philadelphia's "Fab Four" starting pitchers lead them to the playoffs again? Will Texas be able to prove their 2010 championship series berth wasn't a fluke, despite Cliff Lee's departure?

- Fictional: iOOTP creates one of three fictional baseball worlds -- 2 divisions, 8 teams; 4 divisions, 16 teams; or 6 divisions, 30 teams -- and populates it with fresh players and clubs. Select a team and build a dynasty from scratch.

- Historical Replay: Choose one of three past seasons -- 1923, 1965, or 2004 -- and see if it produces a different outcome.

After selecting a gameplay mode, choose a team and handle every aspect of managing it:

- Manage your team: Assemble your pitching staff and assign starting and bullpen roles. Create depth charts and batting lineups, including the ability to set lineups against right- and left-handed pitchers.

- Call the shots: Decide when to steal bases, bring in relief pitchers and pinch-hitters, put on the hit-and-run sign, pitch out with speedy runners on base, tweak your defensive alignment, and more.

- Step into the shoes of the General Manager: Negotiate contract extensions, sign free agents, put together trades, draft first-year players, promote players from the minors, put players on the disabled list, and more.

During games, the play-by-play text is generated from a huge database of tens of thousands of lines that bring the action alive. Bottom of the ninth, two outs, bases loaded, you're down by two runs and you have your best hitter stepping to the plate against your opponent's rock-solid closer ... What will happen next?

During the season, news tickers bring you headlines from around the leagues as computer-controlled teams make decisions that you will need to pay attention to and possibly counter. Your biggest rival just pulled off a blockbuster trade with the trading deadline looming ... How will you respond?

As iOOTP's living world evolves, players develop their careers, age, and eventually retire, with a possible spot in the Hall of Fame waiting for them. New players drafted by you and groomed in the minors take their place and become the next generation of superstars.

iOOTP Baseball is the ultimate game for baseball fans!

Oh my, does this look interesting. I'll have to look at my iTunes finances, but I do want this.

It's ultimately a detail, but I like when management/sim games (or games that are mainly played in menus) create their own interface and don't just use iOS's basic menus and fonts. This one really has baseball written all over it, which is awesome.

Needless to say I am thrilled for this finally on it's way to release!

If anyone has any question about it do look in the upcoming thread where the developer outlined several play scenarios in great detail that will show exactly what this game can do:


And don't forget the preview article on the front page!

The PC version is amazingly addictive, I've put a lot of hours into it. This one looks nearly identical to it, with not much missing. Very complete version of ootp baseball. not half-assed at all. Great job sir. Looking forward to playing it.

No, not in the first version. But hopefully we will be able to add some sort of multiplayer-mode in the future!

Markus: is there a Universal upgrade planned? I saw someone mention it in the preview thread but wasn't sure if you had confirmed plans to do so.
