Stick Cricket Premier League boasts stylish graphics and quick performance, but it's a little difficult to get the hang of, at first. It's not as easy to figure out as similar batting games, which might be a little off-putting. The sheer number of options and customization makes it a ton of fun to play, though.
The game lets you join and control your favorite team from the Indian Premier League, but other cricket leagues don't join in on the fun. You can create a character, but you can only customize the name, skin, and hair color of your player. The animation doesn't try to copy high-end graphics of console games. Instead, it has a graphic flair all its own. It's a little cartoony, but it does look totally cool and the environments are really dynamic. As for gameplay, Stick Cricket Premier League responds very quickly to your taps and touches. You can choose different ways to swing, but timing your swing takes a little while to get used to. Once you've found the touch, you can rack up in-game dollars that let you buy new coaches and skills. There are deep statistics in each game, too. You'll have to navigate away from a pop-up ad that takes over your whole screen at the end of every match, though. Aside from that, the app is really a lot of fun.
Stick Cricket Premier League seems like a neat app for cricket fanatics and a good way to turn new players onto the game. If you don't mind rising to the challenge of a tougher game, the app will reward you for your patience.
Your ticket to the bright lights of Premier League superstardom is here!
From the creators of the most popular cricket game in the world, Stick Cricket Premier League offers you the chance to:
CREATE YOUR CAPTAIN
Create and customise your player, before taking guard against the world's best bowlers.
TRAVEL THE WORLD
From Mumbai to Melbourne, your skills are in demand! Team owners in India and Australia are battling it out to secure your signature.
BUILD YOUR DREAM TEAM
Your owner will bankroll the recruitment of Star Players from around the world, boosting your chances of winning the League.
Choose from more than 50 Star Players to bolster your squad. Star Batsmen are more likely to clear the rope, while a signing a miserly Star Bowler will ensure the targets you chase aren't as demanding.
If your squad is in need of some experience, you can coax an ex-player out of retirement on a short-term deal.
Alternatively, try to confound the pundits by winning the League with a team of rookies. The choice is up to you.
ESTABLISH A DYNASTY
You've got five seasons to establish your team as a force in the Premier League. Your success-hungry owner will want five trophies... just don't end up with the dreaded wooden spoon instead.
Hiring a batting coach will soon have your created captain slogging it like a Star, or reduce the runs your team concedes with the expert guidance of a bowling coach.
ENHANCE YOUR SIX APPEAL
The crowd wants maximums! Each League provides cash bonuses for every six you smash, as well as stumping up an appearance fee. You read that correctly: cold hard cash, just for showing up!
Easy to play yet hard to master, Stick Cricket Premier League - optimised for tablets - boasts two leagues, 16 teams, two stadiums and the same "hellishly addictive" (Gizmodo) gameplay that helped Stick Cricket to become a productivity-destroying phenomenon worldwide.
