This actually came out a couple of days ago but because no one noticed it I thought it could use the publicity here as it is a nice game.

I've been playing this over the last couple of days. Big cricket fan, but have only briefly played the series on the PS, years ago.

Appears to have everything that the 2010 PC version has from what I have read, I've had no technical problems and it seems pretty comprehensive.

It's Footy Manager for cricket fans.

Very good.

Hi, many thanks for posting this up.

We performed the porting work for this project and we're very pleased with it.

We're currently working on the first update to fix a few issues we discovered at launch and will be kicking off the marketing properly for it.

Please carry on helping us spread the word.

I had a crash today when playing this in the middle of a 3 day friendly which was kind of frustrating.

Overall a nice game though. Quite a few game modes are offered. If you are new to this I suggest playing either a quick exhibition match or a one off series to give you a idea of how the game works

Yeah I've been playing this since release and it's fab. Honestly one of the best Cricket games I have ever played. With this and Big Cup Cricket you have both ends of the spectrum covered. Love the English County league with the reproduced grounds in the highlights, and the mass of information on players here is astounding. There's a sense of realism and attention to detail in the game that is rare, especially on iOS where sim-style games are obviously out-numbered.

Left a 5 star review on the AppStore, hopefully it'll show up in the New Year. Only thing I'd ask for is an auto-save function, possibly over-by-over.

So I'm assuming this is purely a management type game? Or do you actually get to play the matches?

It's management only. Your interaction in-game involves things like picking the team and the batting order. Then once underway as batsmen you have the options to set aggression and whether to keep strike. As bowlers you set the length and line (to exploit the opposition batsmen weaknesses) and choose what bowlers to play. There are some pre-set fielding positions you can use too but not individual fielders.

You also have to keep an eye on weather, pitch and ball conditions and adapt accordingly. For example picking when to declare can be tricky as can whether to chase runs or play out for a draw. Honestly I think Cricket lends itself to this sort of game far better than it does an action title unless it's Big Cup Cricket which is essentially a 10 over slug-a-thon. Which is huge fun of course, but not what this particular game is about.
