Getting Better! But...

Curtis R. Shideler

EDIT: Latest update fixed the virtual stick, and now it floats to wherever you tap AND has much better accuracy. Only problem I had was that I had to restart the current ball game that I had previously saved in the 5th inning in my franchise as it was hanging on the load screen. No big deal though. However, I’d still love the Homerun Derby mode added. I would much rather play Homerun Derby on mobile than console. But all in all, it’s a solid entry in the series, and Homerun Derby would hit it out of the park!

This is a good start, but as others have mentioned, the virtual stick needs to be fixed. Seems the detection box is too small during initial tap. Won’t hold a tap either. And when you go to move it again you, you have to hit it just right. ALSO, where’s the home run derby mode?!? Lack of the home run derby mode from the console version is pretty disappointing. Franchise is nice, though. But I probably won’t mess with trades. I’d rather just download roster updates. AND be able to play home run derby. :(

Did someone play this game before they released it?

The game glitches every inning so you have to restart the entire game you’re playing, since it doesn’t save. If you do save the game, you have to do it every inning to keep your progress, but it takes forever.

The toggle control also does not work. It goes the opposite way that your touch. It’s like it has a mind of its own. You can’t play the game using manual fielding because of this. You send the fielder to catch the ball and runs in the opposite direction. It’s ridiculous!

I cannot believe that I paid $6.99 for this garbage. The only reason I’m not giving it a 1 star is the the option to trade players. The game has the potential to be fun, if it actually works like it’s supposed to. The makers of this game need to fix this ASAP. I really want to play the game, but it is currently impossible.

iPhone X control issue


EDIT: 4/2/18
The thumb pad is working fine. I find that when a runner is on a base and you tap to steal... the better moves to the right as well. Also... finished a game in franchise mode and I had to reply the game... it wouldn’t start game 2... just stayed on game 1... game play has improved with the update but still a few more glitches...

The directional button is crap. Everything goes to the right... no matter which direction you’re pushing towards. I’ve owned the last 3 versions of this game and it’s been AMAZING. This version would be equally amazing once the control bugs are worked out. The visuals are amazing and the player movement and detail is incredible. Except for the pop flys behind the plate. The father isn’t even wearing protective gear. Please fix the control ASAP! Until then, not worth any money.
