Looking for two games, one a realistic baseball game, the other a Point n Click

I really enjoy the new Baseball Superstars 2011 that recently came out, but I was looking for something a little bit more realistic. I dont mind the cartoony graphics, what I dont like is the pace at which everything happens, EX everyone throws the ball at like 200 mph. Im looking for a game where its possible to drive in a run by hitting a long fly to the outfield, not a game where he will get thrown out no matter what. (That last sentence was just an example, but you get the idea.)

Also, Im looking for a good Point and click adventure game. I have Monkey Island and it is good, but what I'm looking for is something more along the lines of a Pajama Sam type game. Know any good ones?

Could be wrong but I don't think there exists a baseball sim yet in the appstore. Superstars series is def the most arcadey though for sure. Try 9 innings pro, my personal fave, or power pros by Konami. Neither is realistic, but both are a blast to play.

For point-and-click I gotta go with 1112 and it's sequel. They're short but sweet, and they're visually appealing. Beneath a Steel Sky is ugly but classic, with good controls.

Now Playing...FFT: War of the Lions, Tiger Woods '12

I have to completely agree and I'll add Hector Badge of carnage to the point and click and flick baseball pro for the baseball itch

Hector or Secret of Grisly Manor - excellent point and clicks.

If you're looking for a sim baseball game that's more about strategy, why not try EWB Baseball.
