Anybody remember that NPower Cricket game that was a rage a few years ago? Well I rediscovered it, of all places, on my sisters laptop (she doesn’t like cricket, now that Jonty’s retired) and have been playing quite regularly – thiry to forty times a day, every time I take a break from studies, which is, as you can see – quite often. Good fun.
According to the Npower site, the highest score is 426/1 by Gaurav Rele. Not surprisingly, a majority of the high-scores are by Indians.
My highest score so far is
242/0 247/0 257/3 258/0 269/2 in the 12 overs that one is allowed. Gameplay is quite easy – use the arrow keys to hit the ball. If the ball comes down the leg side – left arrow key; off side – right arrow key; straight – up arrow key. What’s really difficult is the timing.
If you play it, do post your scores, as long as they’re below mine. O-)
