Do you fancy cricket? Do you still cherish the days of playing cricket under your desk flipping through the pages in your text book with your friends? Well, here is the Book Cricket app to help you play cricket at any time and at any place, of course!
This Book Cricket application tickles your childhood memories of playing cricket with a book. It's a book which decides your game here.
Cricket is one of the most favorite sports across the globe. The popularity of cricket continues to grow with the increasing number of fans worldwide. Many cricket fans have their own cricket tales to pass on to their kids.
Fantastic stadium ambiance
Addictive game play
Select your own and opponent play team
Proficient score board
Attractive animations for fours, sixes and duck-outs
Live score display in the game arena
Share game results in Facebook and Twitter
Taking the even page numbers of the book as runs, this app has options to select the team, number of overs and choose the toss. The toss winning team either elects to bat or bowl first.
A simple tap on the Flip button allows you to start the batting/bowling. The random page flipped will give you the score. The bowler will take a wicket if the flipped page has a number ending with zero. The batsman scores a six if the page number ends with six, scores a four if it ends with four, scores a single if it ends with eight and a couple if it ends with two.
Once the innings end, the team switch sides and the target is set by the first batting team for the second batting team to chase. On finishing the game, you can share the result in Facebook and Twitter. Book cricket will definitely keep you entertained for hours.
What are you waiting for? Let the fun begins!
Down the Memory Lane!
Great start to recreating a cricket classic for the iPad! Took me back to my school days where we used to spend hours after hours killing time to break the monotony of boring classes!
Some bugs persist.. (i) scorecard inconsistencies -- dismissed batsmen make a comeback (ii) scorecard not consistent with actual scoring, (iii) Game Center achievements are not accurately reflected, e.g. I scored 61 runs, but it did not reward me for 50+ runs, same for Hat-trick of wickets by the same bowler within an over (iv) Game Center achievements are incorrectly labelled - e.g. "Did not take a Hat trick of wickets", should be "Took a Hat Trick"
Great Start, but some ways to go!
It's a random number generator
There is no game. You just keep clicking 'flip' which randomly assigns a score based on the book page that comes up. Maybe some nostalgia value if you now what this is about. For the rest, not very interesting and not worth the time to download.
I dont need a book anymore...This is amazing fun and handy..And the graphics sound and everything makes the game all the more entertainin:DCheers!!!
