Want to play the English’s version of Baseball or perhaps you are just looking for a game that increases you hand eye coordination, then look no farther than Stick Cricket. The name Stick Cricket derives from the English Game Cricket and the neat graphics which make your players look like stick people.
Stick Cricket is a simple and easy game where you use the Arrow Keys or letters A, W, D, and S key to move your player and the stick bat to aim for your hit. The Keys mentioned do the following moves; W or Arrow Up Key moves are Straight Drive/ Defend/ and Let Go, the A or Backwards Arrow keys moves are Cow Corner/ Pull/ Hook, the D or Forward Key are Cut/ and Off Drive, and the S or Down Arrow Key is Duck. This is one set of keys you may want to remember since the ball can and will come straight at you.

I know I said simple and easy, the only really simple and easy things about this game is the Keys used to play, I found the arrow keys the easiest to use. To play you wait until the ball reaches you then you swing the bat using one of the keys, the overall goal is to hit it as far as possible without getting an out, scoring higher than the opposing team. The game is highly addictive, and fun for everyone. You will notice three sticks standing up out of the ground, if the ball hits one of these then you get an automatic out.
There are four figures in the outfield behind the pitcher who you need to aim away from if at all possible. They are there for one reason and one reason only to get you out, that perfect hit that took so long to get is caught by these menacing players. They are only doing their job though as they are on the opposing side.
The designers focused more on the fun you can and will have playing the game, than the actual graphics though definitely eye catching in their drawings.
