MMA Manager game is out now for iOS ( iPhone & iPad ), Android and Amazon Fire!
MMA Manager Game puts you in control as manager of your own MMA federation, in this fantasy MMA simulation game.
The sport of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) is all about putting two fighters together, possibly from different training and fighting backgrounds, to see which one wins. Will a wrestler beat a karate expert? Can the kicks of Muay Thai defeat the submissions of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu? There’s only one way to find out… FIGHT!
The MMA Manager game world contains 500 uniquely generated fighters, across three weight classes, and from seven different fighting backgrounds.
Each MMA promotion in the game has screens that gives details of finance, roster, and past events. Each promotion is trying to increase ratings for events and increase profits.
As well as your events, the competing MMA promotions are also putting on events of their own. Charts of the Top 10 TV MMA Shows and of the Top 10 PPV MMA Events let you see how each company’s five most recent TV shows and pay-per-views compare. Which company is winning the MMA ratings war?
Each month, your MMA federation, and your two competitors, has one weekly live event that is broadcast on network TV, and a live PPV event that’s exclusively for a pay-per-view audience.
Each fighter in the game also has their popularity and their personal skills. Talking to your talent agent or scout about a fighter can tell you how their popularity stacks up against the best in the World. It will also give you some idea of their combat abilities. However, you’ll never truly know how good a fighter is until they get out there and fight.
Every fighter in the game has a detailed stats page giving information about their status, their win/loss breakdown, and a history of their last five matches. Every fighter in the game ages, improves their skills, loses their skills, and eventually retires, to be replaced by a rookie. Fighters also move from federation to federation as their careers progress, or sometimes find themselves on the free agents list.
No MMA fighter is invincible, even if they sometimes seem that way, and if they take too much of a beating in a fight, an injury may occur that could potentially put them out of action for months. Of course, some fighters are more injury prone than others, so you need to pay careful attention when hiring new talent. Who wants to pay a fighter a monthly wage for being injured all the time, and how will you put on good shows when your roster is stripped down by fighter injuries?
For every TV show and PPV event, you must select a venue and set ticket prices for admission. In addition, for PPV events, you must set the cost for people to buy the event on pay-per-view.
After every event, you get to see a breakdown of the finances. Did you sell out the venue, or did your high ticket prices put people off?
As you put on more MMA events over time, you can look at the history of the last five TV or PPV events to see how they compare. Should you consider booking a larger venue for your next event, or should you lower ticket prices to try to compensate for falling ratings?
For every MMA fight, of every show your promotion stages, you get to book the fighters. However, once the fight gets under way, it’s all down to the skill of the fighters. Who will be the winner?
MMA Manager Game offers fully simulated text-based fights between fighters, with play-by-play commentary. Who wins the fight is down to skill and fighting ability. You can also see what sort of reaction the fighters are drawing from the crowd.
For every TV show and PPV event, you need to put together the best card of fights to sell the most tickets and make the most money. However, you also need to think about the future of your fighters and your promotion. Do you want to risk scaring off up-and-coming fighters by booking them against higher rated opponents too soon? Do you want to put a championship match on a TV show to boost ratings, or do you save it for the PPV?
As well as booking fights for your events, you can also book the promo spots that will occur during your TV shows. These spots can range from simple video packages, to live promo segments where a fighter addresses the fans directly. A good promo spot can boost the fan buzz and popularity of a fighter. At the end of a match, or when a promo spot is run, you can see the amount of fan buzz that segment drew from the crowd. More buzz leads to more ticket sales and better ratings for your shows, and increases the fighters’ popularity.
As time goes by, and the game world evolves, records will be broken, and MMA legends will be made!
So, are you ready to enter the world of mixed martial arts and take your place in the ratings war as an MMA manager?
