Flick Home Run is an arcade home-run-hitting game that only requires a flick of your finger to send the ball over the fence, but it definitely takes practice. Unlike 3D home run games like Home Run Battle, in Flick Home Run you have a 2D view of the playing field, with pitches coming from the right and you timing your flick to send the ball as far as you can. The game instructs you to touch a Pitch button in the lower left corner, and when the ball comes into play, your job is flick the ball at just the right angle to send it on its way.
The basic game mechanic is easy to learn, but difficult to master, as there are other arcade elements in Flick Home Run as well. Beyond trying to get the perfect angle for a hit, you'll also have different colored cartoonish heads (baseballs) that all behave differently. One acts as a fastball and another tests your timing with a changeup. As you progress, there are other baseballs that do even more outlandish dips and curves. The key is identifying the ball type and adjusting your swing accordingly. The game gives you some help here with a button that lets you know what kind of ball is coming, but you can only use it three times per game. All of this amounts to plenty of variation in gameplay and a lot of different pitches to master.
Flick Home Run has several unlockable levels that you can open by completing challenges and hitting efficiently. A meter slowly goes down with each missed hit, while big hits will bring the meter back up. If the meter goes all the way down your game is over. This mechanic adds to the fun because you'll find yourself trying to get big hits just to stay in the game.
A recent update to Flick Home Run brings several new game modes to breath new life into this already great game. A new bunt mode challenges you to land a ball on a target perfectly for the most points. Faster and Faster mode slowly increases speed to see how far you can get. The new game modes add more challenge and replayablity to this easy to pick up and play game.
When you think you've got Flick Home Run down, you can take your skills online and enter a sort of home run derby. Each hit gives you more points depending on distance, and if you fill your meter before your opponent, you win the game. Fans of the popular Home Run Battle games will recognize the game type immediately.
If you're looking for good time-waster that has a fairly difficult learning curve initially, Flick Home Run offers plenty of challenge. In addition, online multiplayer matching and extensive single-player challenges give this game tons of replay value.
