The original Motorsport Manager [$1.99] was a lot of fun, and we really liked it in our review. It managed to balance casual with a simulation of one of the most complex sports out there and did so using really lovely visuals. The franchise then made the jump to the PC, where it added plenty of depth and more features. If you're fans of the original, you'll be happy to know that Motorsport Manager Mobile 2 is launching July 13rd and will add more depth and longevity to the original recipe. You'll be once again hiring drivers, but those drivers will now age, improve, leave your team for another one, and eventually retire. This dynamic driver market should make each playthrough feel different, something the original game had a bit of a problem with.

The engineering part of the game will also be more complex, with engineers designing parts from scratch and overall demanding more attention. The most important improvement will be on race day. The race simulation now has more detail and more options, including more engine modes, tire compounds, team orders, and so on. The developer promises a much more dramatic experience, and I hope that ends up being true. The game will be a premium title and will cost $3.99. If you're an Android player, expect the game to be available early August.

    Almost an instabuy for me having played the through several times, but it's the kind of game where tweaks to core mechanics could really break the game. The Devs obviously have to add something new from the original, I just hope it still has the same great feel of the first.

    • Bloodangel

      Looks pretty much the same to me... just some extra options here n there, and very slightly improved race graphics

        To me it looks like a watered down port of their PC version, which isn't a bad thing, PC version is way more advanced. Especially good at $4. πŸ˜›
