Get the cricket fever

Play cricket before a stadium full of your fans.

Cricket WorldCup Fever for iOS takes its users right into the middle of the World Cup by inviting them into the spotlight. Its great graphics, combined with the brief tutorial for each game selection, allows both longtime cricket fans and beginners to grasp the basics of the game in seconds. The only downside is that it might take you a while to perfect your shots.

The first steps of the game are very simple: you choose a game mode from the list available, and you'll immediately meet your opposing team. We were impressed by how real the developers were able to make the game feel. We especially liked the camera movement and angles, and how you can switch automatically between the roles of being just a simple spectator to playing the game. We also like the crowd sound effects, which make the game seem even more real because they applaud or boo, depending on your moves. We did find it a bit difficult to learn how to deliver the perfect shot, as the direction swipes aren't as well-defined as you might expect them to be. This can become a bit annoying, especially when you hear the crowd booing at you.

Overall, the Cricket WorldCup Fever is a free app that feels great, and we loved playing it, yet we think this game has room for slight improvement, especially on the batting side.
