1994 classic Amiga game - football management games
Third (hence the subtitle "Hattrick") version of once very popular game Bundesliga Manager, also known from the English edition, titled The Manager. Just like in previous games (Bundesliga Manager and Bundesliga Manager Pro), we take over control of one of the clubs in the German league, the basic elements of the game are more or less unchanged, while the available range of options to manage the club have been broadened.
The 1st and 2nd Bundesliga, two Regionalliga and one Oberliga divisions are simulated and the excellent addition is the chance to manage the German national team in all competitions (from friendly games to European and World Championships), which was rare option back in 1990s.
Another strong point of the game is large number of simulated teams (apart from Bundesliga also divisions from English, French, Spanish and Italian divisions are available, although we do not have the opportunity to participate in them). There is also a large number of options to manage the club - just like in previous game we can sign sponsorship deals, order club gadgets, expand the stadium, setup training program, we can bet on the results of the games or even participate in indoor tournaments.
The weak point of the project were the new animations presenting the situation in the match, as well as the problem already present in the first Bundesliga Manager game - the lack of insight into match statistics, making it difficult to make educated transfer decisions.
