Pocket League Story 2 is the latest English game from Kairosoft that is available in Google Play and the best part.....it's FREE!!!!!! I have to admit that it's been a long time that I'm stuck playing Pocket Stables and Ninja Village which made this new game such an excitement for me. Even though you're not a football fan, fear not I'm not but I manage to understand this game easily. Like the first game you train your team, get them to play in matches against other teams and also take part in leagues.
What's so exciting about this games is there are many new things introduced into the game and those elements made the game more realistic. There are more strategizing to do in the game, more thinking and planning to build the best team to win the game. Because of the new features I think the game just gotten more interesting. I'm still at the beginning of the game hence I can only list the new features that I come across so far. One thing that I can say that stays the same are some of the player names are reused but their role might vary. This game is a mash up of some concepts from Dream House Days and Beastie Bay. Firstly you can add friends whereby you'll be able to hire them as one of your players. The next thing is for every 10 minutes you play without counting in menus, you'll get a coin. This coin is a crucial item just like the one in Beastie Bay because it can purchase better items.
The things that are introduced to make the game more realistic is that all players have stamina bars in matches and it affects their fatigueness. The important thing about it is when the player runs out of stamina in a match, he/she will be injured and it takes months to recover which affects their performance. Another new thing is the players playing in a match might commit a foul which results to yellow/red cards and we all know red card means the player is out. Time out is also introduced in matches where you can use it to change formations.
Your players now have skill slots where they learn specified skills and you equipped it for them to perform better. Items can also be used to boost the player's stats. In this game you have scout level which influences the player you can hire, the higher the level the better the candidate. Selecting matches are different now that the outlook has a map like sort of look. There are also bonus requirements to obtain besides beating a certain match against a team. When these requirements are met, you will get extra rewards besides the winning prize. This allows you the reason the beat those teams over and over again to complete those requirements. What I love the most is the interface of the game is much improved and everything looks so much better compared to the previous game. Lastly, when you start the game you get to customize your character which will be the captain of the team. There will be 30 points to spend on the stats and also the role of the player.
Overall there is much learning to do in the game which makes the game more worth to be replayed many times over. We the gamers will have to take note of managing resources in terms of the money, coin, tech points and also heart points so that we can get the best team. If one method does not work, play until the end and start a new game so that some of the stats will be carried over. I've been really addicted with this game and I think I will need to play it 2-3 times more the get a rough idea and then I'll be able to post some tips. Get the game here from Google Play store. One final note, I'm in no way affiliated with Kairosoft company, I just love their games and want to share the joy. Below will be pictures on how the game looks like.
