This app is an absolute gem, I can't believe its only 69p (if you want to unlock the career mode - which i'm sure you will).

It's a mix between Sensible Soccer and Footballer of the Year, you start off as a 16yr old trialist, get a contract at a lower ranked club anywhere in the world (there must be about 100 countries leagues represented in this game).

In game you are given situations to pass, shoot or intercept and your decisions lead to your overall match ratings, it's so addictive managed to make my way from Chelmsford to Altrincham to Aldershot, then to Raith Rovers and Aberdeen before finally moving to Barcelona.

Anyway this review lead to me checking out - http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...ew-star-soccer

You get presented with about 5-15 chances in a game from an old school Champ Man type commentary, ranging from passing to shooting. It's all touch screen, simple but addictive.

Great game, although I've sort of completed everything there is to do now. Amazing value for 69p though.

Yeah, found this on a Flash games site that I play during lunch hour at work, great game to kill time during lunch and then got the game on Android and it is just as addictive!

Nice too that they keep adding features.

Addictive. Just wish there were more achievements to unlock (100 career hat tricks, 1000 assists etc)

I've had this game a few weeks, and its really addictive, on question though, I'm now 38 (in the game) and i wondered how long I will be able to play before I have to retire?

Its a good game early on, when your still improving as a player and moving up the leagues but when you've done all the skills and can afford the best boots and houses for recovery time the game just gets boring because its so easy.

When I played on it I was constantly winning titles and scoring 100+ goals a season because all I had to do was just aim it on target and it would go in because the keepers are so bad.
