Super 6 Cricket
Before you start playing you can check out the tutorial aka practice mode to get to know the rules and controls. Interactive tutorial gives you detailed instructions with animated examples on how to control batting and bowling. If you play batting, you have to pay attention from which direction and how fast comes the ball. The spot the ball is going to hit will be marked with a gray square. While the ball is flying towards you, you have to click the mouse and drag it in the direction you plan to hit the ball. For some balls strong hits are recommended and for others short (defensive) ones. The game becomes harder over time because the batsman starts playing worse, his reactions are slower and you will become aware of that when you see the grey square showing up slower. At one moment you will be hitting the ball without even knowing where it is.
As tutorial goes on you will be getting very constructive comments at the bottom of the screen which explain in great detail your last move and that is how you can learn from your mistakes. After each hit, if you have made points (runs) the number will be shown on the screen and a silent support applause will come from the stands.
Bowling in this game is not just ball throwing. Since you have only 5 players and each can play only two overs in a row, you have to make combinations. Other thing is that players differentiate in quality, and some strategy is needed accordingly. Like batting, bowling is also controlled using mouse. Once the game starts, you will be controlling the direction and throwing of the bowl only with a mouse. The grid would show up on the screen, with 9 marked squares, and it is advised to place the ball as close to the center as possible and not too far from the stumps. (stumps are those three vertical sticks which make the wicket). Worse players will get a smaller grid so that it would be much harder to hit the center.
Single Game and Tournament
Once you have learned all the rules you can start playing. At the beginning you choose your team (country) and you can choose between England, Australia, New Zealand and all the other cricket playing countries. You can also define the duration of the game through the number of overs, and also choose the hardness mode: easy, medium and hard.
