Pocket GM 3: Football Sim for Positive User Reviews

Great but a recent update made things weirdA team that goes 17-0 will be killed by tons of penalties in the first game of the playoffs. Or the QB plays noticeably worse. Between those two things it’s like the playoffs are a whole separate sim now. I love a challenge, but it feels like it’s just a bit too random sometimes. I feel like 95+ QBs are very rare, and should play as such. Having a horrendous game in the playoffs doesn’t happen for a lot of hall of fame caliber quarterbacks. At least not having a sub 40% completion 3 int game..Version: 1.3.0

Better than Madden FranchiseI love this game. It's one of the best GM simulation games out right now. There are a couple of things that need improvement and more features that would give the game more depth. But this game is a must-buy because it's crazy fun. Let me tell you, managing the cap is crazy hard!! You have to think just like a GM. Also, the Reddit community is a blessing!!!.Version: 1.0.0

Really fun Football simThe positives are it’s a lot of fun. The creator is helpful. The game is challenging. The record books. The achievements. Simming has gotten quicker than previous versions. Their is some randomness that can happen, a perfect team won’t always be perfect. Your team rating is more than just the skill level of the players. The negatives are the AI will trade anyone and anything. After enough time in one save you will just have too many assets. Would recommend this game to anyone who likes football or number simulators..Version: 1.1.1

Love the game but can you add little stuffMost football games do it wrong but here we have a game on the right path player progression, coach progression and teams even go up and down based on how you do in a season. Management of your coaches and rosters is simple even trading is simple. Most games if you start with a crappy team it takes decades to get decent but here there is no penalty focusing on one area and building outwards. I gave it 5 stars due to the simple fact of improvement from the last game The only thing I request is a way to track division championship. Small but it shows who dominates your division also team legends and stats maybe retire numbers which adds flavor to games..Version: 1.1.1

Love the Game, but frustrating not getting feedbackGreat game! I’ve been playing for years off and on. I love the whole experience, but sometimes I create a highly rated team and despite that they lose. I would love a way to know what’s going wrong so it doesn’t feel so random. Maybe media commentators that can say stuff like, “this offensive system isn’t working” “this coach needs to be fired” and stuff like that, because it’s immensely frustrating losing with a good team and not even knowing what needs to change..Version: 1.4.2

Game is alright.This game is fun… until you start losing every game. My players get injured way too much and too fast… I have like a 80+ overall team and I’m losing to 60 overalls. It doesn’t make sense takes away from the game when I go in and I’m losing every week. How is that fun? We aren’t giving anything to upgrade players, you can’t control your Def or Off game plans. Other football manager games allow you to do those things, go in and look at your opponents game plan then build off that but we aren’t given that option. It’s unfortunate. Overall, the game is decent just needs to be fixed..Version: 1.2.0

AmazingAn absolutely wonderful game. Suggestions: Sacks. Defensive players that are highly rated get 30+ sacks a season, which doesn’t make sense. Also, could the starting year be updated to 2023 so my edited roster makes more sense with draft years and stuff? Thanks. An amazing game though, would recommend. (Don’t judge my name it was a mistake from a few years ago).Version: 1.3.0

SadI wasn’t able to do my challenge of doing all the lower rated teams before the update. No but seriously, best money I’ve spent in a long time. My only problem is that QBs that are good are extremely rare in the draft. Other than that, amazing game.Version: 1.4.0

5 starsBest iPhone football manager game by a mile. Some nice improvements here compared to the previous version. The developer listens to the community and does his best to incorporate the communities’ ideas. This is the only game app that I have ever spent money for and it is well worth it. Would give 6 stars if possible..Version: 1.0.0

Best SimulatorThis is the BEST football simulator for iOS! The others I’ve tried are all “pay-to-play” with in-app purchases for boosts and such. This one is just legit football simulation where if you draft, trade, and manage the cap right you can win..Version: 1.2.1

Best Football Sim Out ThereHands down - best football sim available. No in-app purchases, no ads, just football. The creator is active in the community and listens to/responds to feedback. He also updates the game frequently. Excellent game and purchase..Version: 1.0.0

The Best App on the App Store (no exaggeration)The changes you guys have made with trade & contract evaluations has seriously stepped the app up a notch in both difficult & enjoyability. One kind of corny suggestion — could you add an option to name Team Captains at the beginning of each season? Kind of corny, but could be kind of fun.Version: 1.4.1

The sim we need, the sim we deserve right nowThis has been such a wonderful little series to get lost into and kill time for me at work, at home, or out and about. I follow the subreddit closely, the dev is super active, friendly, and responsive. And I know this game will only continue to get better and better with his hard work. I only dream that one day he will release a basketball sim just like this one, and I can get lost in that as well. Looking forward to dark mode!.Version: 1.0.0

Amazing! Well worth more than $2!Game is so addicting and fun. Takes a while to get used to the interface and nuisances of the game when compared to Madden or 2k but its awesome for a mobile version. No in app purchases just pay and enjoy!.Version: 1.2.0

Fantastic for the first 10 yearsThe game works great and is arguably the best football mobile game made, yet after the years progress the scouting becomes messed up as even with the best scouts possible every is rated 5 stars no matter if they are a first round pick or a 7th round pick. The hireable coaches, scouts, and physios also becomes very 90+ heavy as the years progress compared to the first year when there is only one or two total..Version: 1.2.1

Fun gameWould recommend. Worth the few bucks. Is a great sim.Version: 1.1.1

Brilliant in Every Way PossibleAbsolutely Incredible. Would pay $8+ for this game in its current state and its only going to get better. Typically I’d have suggestions to the developer, but this one leaves me suggestion-less. Next-Up is finding a way to turn this over to a Connected GM so you and your friends can manage against one another. Top-Tier Management Simulation Game, #1 Football Game on the AppStore, no questions asked. Good Work..Version: 1.1.0

Great game!I enjoy playing sports simulation games. This is by far one of the best all around games I’ve played! The ONLY thing I can think of that could be added is more of a hands on style when not simming the games. For example the app cfc (college football coach) lets the user pick whether a short, medium, or long pass should be called as well as inside or outside run call. Then a specific coverage can be called on defense. But overall an amazing game, most definitely worth 2 dollars!.Version: 1.1.1

Any football fan has to buy it!!!Worth every single dollar. The simulation engine and the AI are great, you’ll have a real challenge if you want it, and drafting can be hard. Completely recommend this game to anyone who wants to lead their favourite team to the promised land and win a championship (just for those wondering, this is a better experience than whatever madden has offered us for a decade (or even more)..Version: 1.1.1

Awesome gameSo much fun. Would highly recommend.Version: 1.4.0

Absolutely great gameLove this game. I’ve been playing since PGM2. I’m currently in year 2102 on my current save. Only thing I really think needs improvement would be the scouting. It’s really hard to build a dynasty due to the scouting. I’ve had great scouts that rated several players highly that I drafted and ended up getting terrible ratings. I’d love to see multiple position scouts as well. In example, head scout specialty would be entire o-line instead of specifically C,OG, or OT. Or specialize in receiving or blocking WR and TE. Same for defense. I’ve had great success playing on Hard as I’ve won 23 championships with a score of 1,744. I’ve done so mostly by managing contracts to creat cap space, and sign highly rated veteran players, then switching teams to one looking for a rebuild and repeating the process. I’ve won a championship with 11/32 franchises. Will be looking to build a dynasty soon to try and change the dynamic, but is hard to do so with poor scouts..Version: 1.2.1

Cream of the Crop + One SuggestionThis game is the best management you can get with fully customizable rosters and no pay to win whatsoever. If you love football you will love this management game. The developer is fantastic, the community around the game is excellent, and you will happily invest hours. Dev: Please add “team needs” to power rankings. It really helps find realistic trades and wheel and deal to the proper teams to get value..Version: 1.3.0

Exceptional football managementI have played each of Jon’s games and have sunk untold hours of spare time into each of them. The new iteration of his formula that creates a hands on sense of managing a franchise is above and beyond anything you’d find for $60 much less $2. If you enjoy making decisions, the process of team building, and the serotonin boost of watching numbers go up, this is for you..Version: 1.0.0

IncredibleI haven’t played this in a few months, so not sure what all updates I missed. But what I have played recently has been one of the most polished football management games yet. You can no longer beat the system by trading for low value super dev players. This on top of varying potential and contract upgrades, has made it great. For instance, it’s easy to sign staff to long term deals for cheap but its hard to cut them if you want to switch things up. Overall great job, look forward to future updates but game is complete IMO!.Version: 1.3.0

Amazing game but missing some thingsLove the game and been playing for a long time but would like to see a couple things added to the game like a UDFA academy or a scouting department something along those lines but love the game overall.Version: 1.4.3

Man. This game is what Madden wants to be.I’ve searched long for a full football GM sim experience. There is so much detail in this game. The best part is that the stats are generally accurate (other sim games have every QB throwing 40 tds etc.). I don’t know how you designed the logic, but it is impressive..Version: 1.2.0

The best app game of all time for meThe attention to detail, the hours you can spend on it, the community behind it and the realism of managing a team is executed perfectly. Incredibly grateful to Jonathan for developing this game. Thank you from Australia..Version: 1.1.1

Love this Game, A basketball app similar to this would be AmazingI always seem to come back to this game every so often and can’t stop playing it. It would be nice to see historical stats and stuff added to this game. Also, if there was a Basketball version of this it would be a godsend. Overall though I still love this game!!.Version: 1.4.3

Fun, addicting, frustratingAmazing setup. Always loved playing franchise mode in Madden and this is the closest thing to it. One caveat from PGM2 - PGM3 is drafting. It’s one of my favorite aspects of GMing but it’s gotten so bad I stopped playing. I’ll allocate huge recourses to scouts, but 99.9% of the time they draft busts. Numerous franchises and decades of play with the best scouts and I’ve never drafted anyone above an 80. Meanwhile other teams are drafting “C” players that turn out to be rated in the 90s. Very frustrating. I understand (and like) that there’s an element of chance, but some of the algorithms seem truly random (or stacked against you). I’ve had bad teams go to the championship and super talented teams win 2 games. It feels more like gambling than actual strategy. Which can get old..Version: 1.3.0

Overly difficultI’ve played pocket GM 21 and 22 and had nothing but fun with them. Now I can’t even get a team to the playoffs in consecutive years without getting fired as the GM. Even on easy mode where scouting is supposed to be accurate I have plenty of busts as picks and can’t ever find decent coaches that synergize. There’s also a drastic lack of players to sign in the first year so that year always feels like a wash. That on top of the lack of LBs while there’s always a glut of WR and RBs to sign even in the low to mid 70s. This game is frustrating and if I could get my $2 back I would..Version: 1.1.1

Keeps Getting BetterLove this game. It keeps getting better, because the developer clearly cares and responds to suggested/desired features - quickly. Very impressive. Some basics are still missing. Uniform/color pallet editing. Some teams don’t have the right color pallet - ATL jumps out. Primary color is black, not red. Also, I struggle with the brightness of too much red or orange in the headers for some of these teams. Might be a personal preference issue. The darker color headers are definitely easier on the eyes - accented by a pop of bright color..Version: 1.4.2

Great game but a few issues1. Draft is really good, but there are way too many busts for the modern draft atmosphere (feels like a draft from the 80s) 2. Sim is also really good but there are games where my 92 overall team is losing to a 71 overall team that does not make any sense… (there should be a rating scale that you can adjust for sim randomness) 3. I wish you could edit rosters outside of the mode that you could import into the game (like a madden style roster editor with lots of flexibility - ratings, faces, height/weight, etc.).Version: 1.2.1

Long AwaitedSo far, this has been a great game and SO much more. Much new added stuff to make it more immersive. I only wish they would add the targets on the stats page when you click on the game, instead of only showing the receptions. Great game..Version: 1.1.1

Love itLove the game. A lot more realistic than the others in terms of management. The one thing I don’t like is the draft- a 5 star player rating can be really crappy? Seems to happen a lot more often than not..Version: 1.1.1

BrilliantI love this game - have played for hours and hours.Version: 1.1.1

Am I missing something?Had both a head scout and a assistant offensive scout in the 90 range, both specialize in RB. Told me to draft a RB top 5. 5 Star can’t miss prospect. He end up being in the low 70’s. Am I missing something? Fantastic game btw, very in depth, having a great time..Version: 1.4.3

*Almost* perfectFirst and foremost, let me say this is one of my all-time favorite mobile games, and by FAR the best gm game I’ve ever had on my phone. The only reason I’m giving it 4 stars (though it’s more like 4.5) is because it lacks one thing that I feel is essential to a gm game: a position editor. The ability to move a corner to safety or DE to DT, guard to center, etc, can greatly affect how you build a team, and what your able to do… maybe exploiting a strength in a corner that works better at the safety position in your scheme, or you drafted a really good guard who could actually start at center even if he took a slight ratings hit. Whatever the case, being able to edit positions is a must-have and this is the only big improvement I can possibly think of to add to this already impressive and addicting game..Version: 1.1.1

Better than Madden’s Franchise ModeNo, seriously. Better game overall as well..Version: 1.0.0

Best GameIt’s literally my league for football on your phone, one of the best games i’ve played..Version: 1.0.0

Draft diversityLove all of these games! Is there anyway we can fix the draft "lack of diverse positions"? Seems like no matter how I structure the game, all I ever get are WR, RB, and CB. Sure you get some of the other positions, but OLB, MLB, OT, OG, and DE almost never show up as much as the previous mentioned ones. It would be amazing if some years the draft was QB heavy, or OT heavy, or just anything besides all of the WR and RBs. When the best available is a position your already 10 deep at, all you can do is draft and then trade them. Keep up the good work and thanks for listening to our suggestions!.Version: 1.1.1

Amazing!!Never have I felt so compelled to write a review for an app. This game is amazing! You can upload current rosters from Reddit. The gameplay is fair but also fun. The game dev is super responsive on reviews and Reddit. It’s really nice to see someone who actually cares about their app and fun gameplay. I would have paid $20 easily for this if I knew what it was before purchase. Wayyyy better than Madden if you’re looking for an immersive GM mode. 100% would support this creator again! Well done sir!.Version: 1.4.3

Great gameI love this game and I love this series. I have been playing it since the first one came out. One small gripe I have that has bothered me since the first one though is the tie-breaker system. It does not follow what it would typically be in football. Other than this one issue I love the game and can’t wait to dump even more hours into the series!.Version: 1.1.1

Great game.I love it. Enjoyable and fun to pass the time. I would like to see the ability to call plays added when you decided to play a game instead of just watching the sim. Gives ya the chance to control the stats or tempo of a game. Thanks! Good work. Glad I bought it..Version: 1.3.0

3-0 for this game!Once again this franchise has delivered on an easy to play game that you can pick up at any time. Loved it from version 1. The developer works with players of the game to improve it year-on-year and it shows!.Version: 1.0.0

Best Simulation Football On The MarketThis game is the absolute pinnacle of what it means to be a great simulation football game. There’s not a game on the market that can touch this one. it has better simulation than any madden, and can fit in your pocket. The developer absolutely rocked this game, and I would recommend it to anyone that is better football or simulation in any form. 10/10..Version: 1.0.0

Best football game out there. Full stop.THE greatest simulator out there is back. Much more depth than the first two; this one requires a little more thought, but there’s good payoffs and choices matter. The free agency system is much more balanced now, and the coaching mechanism is a nice place..Version: 1.0.0

I love this gameThis game is a million times better than the madden franchise mode! Worth every penny!! There’s a few things they can add but the developers are great at adding things mid season. If your skewed on buying this game just do it it’s so worth the few dollars and I’ll buy this game every year they put it out!!.Version: 1.1.1

Thank you for making this game!I used to play a similar game on my PC several years ago and even emailed that “developer” to convert the game to iOS but never heard back from him. Glad I found this game. Replayability is off the charts. Such a fun game for a stats and numbers geek like me who is a total draft nerd..Version: 1.4.3

Great gameAwesome game. really great as a sim sports engine. My one request would be to have the option of doing some sort of fantasy draft. This is a feature in madden 24 and would take this game to the absolute highest level. I recommend this game to anyone who likes football/ the nfl.Version: 1.4.3

Best GM gameThis is the best management game on the iOS market.Version: 1.1.1

Some Great, Some IssuesThe draft system, negotiating, and in-season stuff is very solid and fun. Most of the game is fantastic. The only thing I don’t enjoy is the coaching system. A lot of times you’ll get screwed if you don’t have your coaches on the same page which makes sense, but I think there should be some kind of mechanic where the head coach defers the schematic stuff to the coaches, that way you aren’t forced to hire 73 ovr coordinators when there are 99 ovr coordinators available for the right price. A couple of ideas: 1) there could be a new type of head coach, the “CEO” type 2) have some kind of agreeableness stat where a coach is more or less willing to change tendencies based on who his other coaches are 3) have the philosophies of the coaches be adaptable towards how the roster is constructed, at least to some degree. Love the game, keep making it great!.Version: 1.4.3

Great GM gameDon’t need a long message to describe this game. Leaving it short and sweet: 5/5 rating. I’m addicted..Version: 1.4.1

Incredibly worth it.I will spare you the details of the game, the obvious time put into this game having never played the previous titles but searching for a game I can play with and have a long term league creating pretty much whatever experience you want is incredible. If you are looking for a fun football simulation to run your own team and try to become the best or experiment with editing your own players or others around the league this app is just incredible. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!.Version: 1.4.1

THE BEST!!!I have been addicted to this game since the previous one a year ago. I am a huge fan of games where you can be a gm or coach and where I can control every aspect of a team. I am always on the lookout for new games like this but I can say for sure PGM3 is the ONLY game that satisfies all my needs. It is truly amazing, from the stats that never go away, the pure variety of results and the ever changing improvements Jon adds, this game is everything I can imagine and more. I have put countless hours into it because of how much I love it and it never gets old. I recommend it and show it to all my friends and am very excited whenever I do so. Overall, this game is the best iPhone game every created for me!!.Version: 1.2.1

Love it but have one request please read!!!This sim beats madden by a mile. Your franchise mode is so much better. I have one request. Make GM firing an option. I like the idea of a long term sim where you are on one team. Through thick and thin from 10 years of playoff appearances to 10 years of missing the playoffs. To a hall of fame QB to a bunch of 1 year journeymen QBs it would be the most fun I’d ever have..Version: 1.4.1
