Old School Football Manager for WM

This has fueled many devs to port old style games from arcades, consoles like the SNES and GameBoy, even from the PC (Doom, Quake, among others). XDA member sesonet decided that he wanted to re-create a game that used to exist for the Commodore 64 (C64). Football Manager allows you to control pretty much every aspect of managing your team and making sure that it gets to where it should be, in first place.
The game is not graphic intensive, but it is addictive as it is. The dev mentions that it is compatible with WM 6 and up and that it is only for WVGA.
