Since I laid my eyes on the sport cricket, I’ve been a huge fanboy watching every single match in which my nation played, every series and four world cups. But, since 2009 and Barcelona, I got so much indulged into football that I almost forgot about the most beloved sport in our country and yet, recently I found out about this cricket game called Stick Cricket. I didn’t catch my eye when I first opened the app but as I started browsing the teams and modes of the game. It truly reminded me of the sport that I used to watch and play with all my heart.
The Game has three modes which are Two Player, All Star Slog and World Domination. In Two Player mode, the game searches for an opponent through WiFi or Bluetooth and you compete with a random opponent. All Star Slog is about beating your own score, the main objective is to make as much runs as you can in limited overs cricket. In World Domination, you have to achieve the required score that is displayed just beside the scoreline, just like normal cricket, chase the target set in front of you. The game has two buttons, one on the left side to play shots on the leg side and other on the right side to play shots on the offside (if you are a right handed handed batsman and vice versa). Proper timing of the ball is the key to gather more runs. overs.
The game play is fun and amazing, the graphics are extraordinarily good as far as mobile gaming is concerned. The sound effects in a match will remind you of playing a world cup final, the feel is amazing. The players aren’t up to the high quality level but their sticky bodies makes up for everything, the way they fall when they can’t handle the ball, pure fun. The game has 13 teams to choose from, teams have authentic and updated names, you can also check the runs scored by every single player on your team through the scorecard.
Stick Cricket is everything that any just-for-fun-cricket fan would want in a game. Everything is perfect about the game except for a meter or gauge to guide you whether the shot you’re playing is late or early but if you have tasted the sport before for even once on your life. You’ll automatically excel in the game after playing a couple of overs. Stick Cricket from Stick Sports is a must-have for any sports fan who likes smashing balls in the air.
