Written by Alistair Way and an early effort from him. If I remember correctly, this was the first game I accepted for release under the 'Mirage' label. Not being a cricket fan myself (bloody boring!) I wasn't the best judge so I passed it over to my brother to look at. He found it graphically basic but addictive as hell and a decent simulation.

The graphics are not very good, there isn't much sound and yet for some reason, I really enjoyed playing this game! I spent 2 hours playing the game on my Atmos recently (blowing dust off the tape box), and it brought back all the memories of when I used to play it when the game was released . You have England vs Australia in a Test Match or Limited Overs game, redefine the teams (so you can use todays players) and there are a number of options. It is quite hard to control the batsmen until you have practiced a bit, master it and you'll soon be getting 4's and 6's. The control is actually quite good when you are used to it. I think that the factor that kept pulling me back was trying to get higher batting scores - this bit is oddly addictive. Fielding is a bit boring. Like I said the graphics and sound are not very good, so either this game will grab you (the one-more-go factor) or you will hate it utterly - there is no middle ground! If you don't like or understand cricket, you definitely will hate it! I gave an extra point for the graphics score for the ball delivery routine, as this is important for play and done well - otherwise it would have scored only 1.
