Gave this a quick play. I'm always on the lookout for a good cricket game.

The gameplay is very simple: tap anywhere to swing. Swing at the right time and you get a six, slightly early or late and you get a four, otherwise you get zero and lose a wicket.

Each game consists of a six ball over and lasts a couple of minutes. If you get a six, you get an extra ball; if you get four sides in a row, you earn a power up for your next shot. Losing a wicket has no discernible effect other than the loss of a ball.

There are also four power ups which you can enable before a round. These last the whole round and can be used for free but are on 40 minute timers. You can skip the wait for 2 ducks (the in-game currency). Ducks can also be used to buy extra balls at the end of a round.

The ducks are handed out fairly often in game (possibly for centuries and half-centuries - I'm not sure).

That's about it. You can't bowl or field, there's no running or stealing a quick single, no wides or LBW. There are no teams or tournaments, no mission structure to encourage replays.

I did like the music and sound and I quite like the simple graphical style. For me though, it isn't deep enough to keep my interest for any length of time.

Wow! Thanks to everyone playing Mighty Cricket! We've seen bit of success on the Aus, UK and NZ app stores (certainly much more than we ever expected) and It's been awesome reading everyone's feedback. It's really motivated us to keep working on the game. Pretty much since it's been released we've been working on a big update to add leagues.

Soon, you'll be able to choose a county to play for and compete against your team-mates on a weekly leader board and each team's average will then ranked on the Global leader board.

We're looking to get this update out of the door as soon as possible so be on the look out!

We've just released a big update! We've added 5 new batters with unique bonuses like free power ups, free continues and Duck Doublers!

We've also lowered the cost of power ups so you can keep hitting sixes for longer.

Let us know what you think and don't forget to review it on the App Store if you like it.

Cheers guys!
