Five football games to accompany you on the road

Five football games to accompany you on the road

Football fans are a dedicated community of people. Traveling up and down the country to see their beloved clubs in action, most fans would be lying if they told you it wasn't challenging on occasions, particularly while being stuck in a traffic jam or when traveling back in the early hours of the morning following a drab affair. In order to combat these common scenarios, it helps if you've got access to some of the sport's finest video games.

After all, be it on a smartphone device or a tablet, football fans everywhere can take a plethora of products away with them. Alongside other prominent gaming options, such as social deduction games like Among Us and online slot games based on much-loved movies like Jumanji, fans can tuck into a wide range of football titles that can be accessed as and when required. These games fight against boredom while offering an enticing gaming package to throw yourself into.

So, if you need a few football-themed games to keep you occupied during your travels next season, then let's take a look at five of the very best titles below. All of the options featured are available on smartphone and tablet devices.

eFootball 2024 is a top title

Accessible on both Android and iOS, eFootball 2024 is a top game that deserves some serious attention. As gamers look for alternatives to FIFA, a title that could come back later this year or soon after it, an increasing amount of football gamers are opting for eFootball 2024. Formerly known as PES, the game offers realistic dribbling, excellent tactical options, and super clean graphics that add to its all-around pleasurable package. Also offering a plethora of game modes to tackle plus a highly competitive online scene, eFootball 2024 is solid.

New Star Manager is a fun management game

Most football fans have opinions on managers and claim to know solutions to various problems. Football management isn't an easy gig, though. As New Star Manager proves, being in charge of first team affairs comes with its pressures. In the game, managers have to come up with match-winning strategies and improve the fortunes of New Star FC, a beleaguered club who needs your help. New Star Manager isn't the most detailed product on the list but it's definitely entertaining.

New Star Soccer has been around for a while

Given the limitations that smartphones and tablets present when it comes to gaming, sometimes players want to session a simpler product given the limited controls that devices of this type possess. If you'd rather play titles like eFootball 2024 on your console machine, then dabbling in releases like New Star Soccer might be better suited to your portable devices. An arcade classic, its charming retro look is easy on the eye, while the game's Career Mode story is enthralling. In Career Mode, players start out as a talented 16-year-old aiming to work their way to the top. From there, you're in charge of everything, from conducting interviews to managing sponsorship deals. Overall, New Star Soccer's longevity is understandable.

EA Sports FC Mobile is another favorite

If the aforementioned eFootball 2024 is a title you've already tried but didn't necessarily warm to it, then EA Sports FC Mobile is a fantastic alternative. Available to session on both iOS and Android devices, many people regard it as the ultimate replacement for the FIFA series of games that are no longer around. Ultimate Team is the title's most appealing inclusion, although other modes, such as Manager Mode, will also keep you firmly entertained while you're heading to a Premier League powerhouse's home. The game's constant updates also keep it even fresher and even more appealing, while you can play with pretty much any team you can think of. Overall, the mobile adaptation of EA Sports FC is impressive.

Football Manager 2024 Mobile is unbeatable

Although management games like New Star Manager have their merits, there is a strong argument to suggest that Football Manager 2024 Mobile is the only management product worth playing. A game that you'll undoubtedly know about, the mobile version of it warrants a look. From player transfers and press conferences to scouting for talent and keeping squad morale high, there is so much to this mightily impressive release. Also containing new gameplay upgrades and an improved match engine, Football Manager 2024 Mobile is simply the best.
