Football Manager Handheld 2013 offers up-to-date player data and enhanced gameplay for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets
SEGA and Sports Interactive have announced that Football Manager Handheld 2013 is available now for iOS and Android devices. This season's release not only includes up-to-date player and competition data, it also includes a number of gameplay enhancements, many of which have been implemented as a direct result of user feedback. In addition, the game offers various improvements to the user interface; in particular, specific 'skins' have been developed for the most popular tablet devices and retina support has been added for high-end iOS devices.
For managers who like to accelerate their progress through the game, Football Manager Handheld 2013 allows, for the first time, the purchase of a number of 'unlockable' features, including the introduction to the club of a 'sugar daddy', the option to expand the club's stadium, the ability to manage national teams from the beginning of the game and even taking a place on the board (giving the manager immunity from the dreaded sack). While all of these unlockables are available through the in-game store, many can also be 'earned' through in-game achievements as with previous iterations of the game.
Football Manager Handheld 2013 also sees the reappearance of the popular challenges (which first appeared in Football Manager Handheld 2012) and the introduction of a whole new challenge, 'The Dangers of Capitalism'.
