Cricket Strength TesterThe machine is highly customized to accommodate cricket rules. The main base is made out of gigantic cricket bat. The strength scale is graduated to show values which are typical for cricket overs: 0,1,3,5,6,'out', but also there are higher values such as '25' and '50'.
How To Play
In the top screen location you will see all kinds of parameters. 'Runs' shows the overall score. 'Overs' tracks the current over. You have six balls in one over, and this game is played for two overs. Than there's 'wicket'. You start off with three wickets, and each time you're out, wicket counter decreases by one. And finally, we get to the 'time', which is measured in seconds. To lift the hammer off the ground you need to press left and right buttons repeatedly. The faster you do it, the hammer gets up higher. Once the 'time' drops from 10 to 0, the hammer strikes the plate and the ball goes up high. It is interesting that in this game, the higher does not mean always the better. Points are randomized across the scale, which means that the game appreciates accuracy over strength. The tricky part is that the highest points are almost always very near to the 'out' mark.
So what is the aim of the game?
To win the maximum overs within 2 runs and 3 wickets. You can play a single 'match' or 'challenge match' in three different modes of difficulty (easy, medium and hard). In challenge mode there's a so called 'target' value pre-set that you must archive in order to qualify for next level and stay in the competition. I'd say that single match is quite fine as a start. And one more thing. At the beginning you will be asked to enter your name and the name of your team. Ignore this and enter whatever you like. It's not working anyway.
What means fatka?
It wasn't easy to find the answer to this question. Finally, after googling a bit I think I've found it. Fatka is a word in Hindi and it could mean one of two things: a) a piece of cloth for dusting and b) a sudden blow. I would say that a sudden blow would match this game quite well. What do you think?
