Cult Software have been remarkably busy churning out footy management sim's this month - in fact we've had four of them.

They all take the standard footy sim' formula but each has a different slant ont he genre. So, let's kick off with...

This first game puts you in the unenviable position of both playing in and managing your own soccer team (but not at the same time).

There are four divisions and two cup championships to take part in, fairly standard stuff, but as well as making minor management decisions you must also play a small part in the actual matches played.

A view of the goal mouth is displayed. When you feel the moment is right to take a shot at goal, hit the S key and Bob's your uncle, you either score or you don't.

It's not a bad little game but the management sections are a little limited and to be honest, the action sequences might as well not be there.



I don't really know why they bothered putting this in. All you do is press 'S' when you want to shoot; dull as ditch water.
