Social Cricket - Playing Cricket Against Yourself?
You know what? It's not a quiz - it's a real cricket tournament game where you pick two teams: the one you're gonna lead and another way controlled by your computer. Not sure yet how things work because the first scene is a classic scene with you as a pitcher (sorry, bowler...), a batsman and an umpire, a scene you've scene in a dozen of other flash cricket games.
So, what's deal about this one? First, the team selection works for real. I mean those players listed under each contry do really exist. Endru Stras does really play for England. Virender Sehwag is really the Indian cricketer. The developers apparently did their best to make the opening part looks good.
The next this is that you need to pick the number of over you wish to play. My first pick was only one over which turned out to be way too short. So pick at least 2 overs for a decent game.
Hint: Don't wait up for the intro to finish - it shows nothing but an empty court on the stadium full of supporters.
To be honest, I didn't quite catch the rules. If I understood controls correctly, you play as both the batsman and the bowler. First you press the space bar once to get the game going. You keep an arrow key pressed down and hold it, which picks one out of 8 different shots. The next thing you do is to press the space bar again to make the batsman swing his bat. Well, that's odd because you control two guys from different teams. Or am I missing something ?
