App description: "One of our favourites. Ever." - The Guardian Newspaper

Little Master Cricket is an addictive and intuitive batting challenge, using a ragdoll physics engine and a unique control scheme to put you in direct control of the bat.

Swing the bat to hit the ball towards the striped scoring zones, but avoid sending it to the yellow-and-black zones, where you will be caught! Defend your stumps! Choose your strategy carefully: will you play defensively and avoid going out, or will you try to slog your way to a quick century?

Try to get a high score, but don't play too conservatively - your score gets multiplied by your run rate when the game ends! You'll need good concentration and skill to be declared world champion, and to earn the title of the Little Master.

*Realistic physics engine with fluid gameplay.
*Simple, intuitive control. Simply move your finger on the screen, wherever you like, to move the bat
*Multiple types of delivery: top spinners, back spinners, fast balls, and the occasional full toss.
*Global high score support
*Can be played with one hand - ideal for the train or bus
*Change from left-handed to right-handed by flipping your device over

Great to see this hyper-addictive web game come to the phone, but why is it facing the wrong way? Add an option to have the batsman on the left and you've got a sale.

For right-handers, your fingers get in the way of the ball if it faces the original way, so I flipped it. I probably will add an option to flip it back, for the sake of left-handers, but if you're right-handed I can guarantee it works better this way. Believe me, it would have been easier to leave it as it was originally!

Well, I love this! I'm a big fan of Touch Cricket but I'm finding this much more addictive.

It would be great if their was a Top 10 or 100 High score table, ratherthan just the top score. Also, a pause button would be handy too.

Lovely little game though.

Glad you like it! I'll certainly add a pause button for version 1.01. My plan for the high score, was that if nobody set a new highest for a week or a month, I would reset the table and put the highest scorer on a 'wall of fame' on my website. I'm open to suggestions though!
