Pacubits Fut 20 is the continuation of the previous installments of the series, all offered by the same mobile game company. The games represent an innovation in sports simulations, mobile games and games in general. This is a soccer simulation that could be described as a card game, a soccer coach, but in truth, it is nothing like anything seen before, so it deserves a closer look …
Development and reception
Pacybits is the developer and publisher of the Fut game series, which includes several previous installments in both Google Play for Android and the iTunes App Store for iOS devices. The beginning of such a unique concept that has connected the card collector's genre with the soccer simulator and with some other similar sim game elements has given this game quite high scores in both stores for all editions, including this one.
On Google Play, PacyBits Fut 20 Android earned an incredible 4.8-star rating of more than 111k votes so far, which is incredibly high. On the iTunes App Store, Fut 20 iOS has an even higher 4.9-star with more than 10k votes and enjoys equally positive comments. All previous installments of the series have more than four stars in both app stores, which is amazing.

Create a team
As for a player, Fut 20 offers the Draft mode in which you build your equipment from your group of cards. And it does so for each and every one of the positions in the field, including the substitutes. When choosing cards that have higher quality players, it is also very important to connect players that are compatible with each other, which will be reflected in your Team Chemistry score. The chemistry of the team is the reflection of the different nationalities of your players. For example, if two players in neighboring positions are of the same nationality or at least from neighboring states, their correlation will be shown in green or yellow and they will improve the chemistry of their team and work better together.
Also, how well you choose your team, what players you get and how well you build your strategy will affect your team rating and squad rating. Finally, your team's skill will be seen in the estimation of scores for defenders, midfielders and forwards. Having players from the same leagues or nations, while at the same time being highly ranked, will make your team better.
Once your team is complete, you can choose to compete in the Draft League or in a Classic Tournament. And, once you start a game, you should see what it is about. Then we enter the second part of the manager simulator aspect of the Fut sports simulator, which is actually going through a game. The game is played automatically "behind the scenes", while the player receives a live broadcast of the highlights of the game, something like it is being done on sports betting sites or establishments.
Highlights include the most important moments, such as goal opportunities, closed calls, injuries, cards and the like. In addition, the player is not passive and is occasionally asked to participate in the result of a free kick or a penalty kick. If you defend, you choose which parts of the objective to cover. If you shoot, you choose the part of the goal to aim at, and so on. In addition, when two players are in a difficult duel, the user chooses the method that his player must use to approach the duel from the methods offered, such as resistance, rhythm, physical, etc.
Playing games gives you money in the game that is used to buy cards and exclusive card packages and for other functions. The game also has other game modes, such as playing Versus AI, making daily goals, reviewing the latest players, participating in online multiplayer drafts and tournaments, and more.
Pacybits Fut 20 is definitely an interesting concept so far as its game mechanics goes. However, the game is undoubtedly aimed at football fans and people who like to intrude on football data, but not the game itself, like people who like to bet on sports. It offers an endless variety of cards with a colorful display of current and old school players, and also has some rewarding game modes. In general, the game justifies being a great success in all its deliveries.
