You may not find any difficulty while playing this game. If you are a beginner of this game, then you will find some difficulty in the hard levels. But if you are regular user of this game then you will find some difficulty in expert level.
Advertisements: – 4.5/5
I just love the way the developer of this game has used the advertisement section on this game. When you play t20 match or any other match, then you will watch the advertisement at the end of each over. Apart from that you’ll also see the advertiser’s banner on the ground as well as boundary wall of the cricket ground. These kind of advertisement don’t ruin the user experience. You will also see a banner at the top of your screen. It also don’t distract your attention while playing this game.
UI and Ux: – 3.5/5
So, the User Interface and User Experience is quite good. It’s not exceptional or something special. It’s good, we can cope up with that.
Controls: – 5/5
The controls are the normal Touch controls and it also provides hints for moving pattern and that is what I personally don’t like. But if you want that then it has that feature in the game.

2. Real Cricket 18
Real cricket game is also a finest cricket game I have ever played. Even I have found it the most authentic cricket game ever. Almost every player is having their real name in this cricket game. I would like to thank the graphic designers of this game. They have invested their plenty of time in designing the face of the players. You will find almost the same face of every player within this game. In this way this game is providing the complete cricket experience to you.
You can enjoy the cricket championship and premier leagues with this game. This game is providing the best user experience you will enjoy every moment of cricket. Now a days this game is also offering the DRS. It has divided the tournament section into two category one is domestic and the other one is international. In Domestic category you will find plenty of national leagues i.e english 20-20 Bash and Aussie 20-20. On the other hand in international category, you will find world cup, Asia Cup, Tri Series and lots more.
Playing modes: –4.7/5
There were basically five playing mode in this game. The first one is very easy easy, medium, hard and the expert one. I have played all the five modes the first four modes are pretty easy to play. But expert mode requires a lot of skills and determination.
Difficulty level: – 4/5
I don’t find any difficulty level in this game. Apart from expert mode all the modes are easy to play. But when we talk about the expert level. This game takes its difficulty to the next level.
Advertisements: – 4.5/5
I am not impressed with this advertisement scheme of this game. As compared with wcc2 where you can see the ads on boundary wall and on field banners. This game not shows the advertisement like this. I don’t know the reason. Because wcc2 is also not ruining the user experience by providing the ads on that slots. By the way this game is work on the same phenomena to display the ad at the end of every over.
UI and Ux: – 3/5
Not impressed with the user interface at all. You will find the narrow space on your mobile screen while playing this game. But on the other hand the user experience is awesome. Everything is working as they are supposed to work. Apart from that you will find everything you can expect with the real cricket game. This takes the UX of this game to the next level.
Controls: – 5/5
The controls disappoint me again. I was expecting the controls like wcc2; where you need to swipe the screen while batting. But in this game if you want to bat, then you have to press the touch buttons apart from swipe the screen. If you are a beginner of this game you will find some difficulty while bat in this game. But on the other hand bowling on this game is quite easy.
- Authentic players’ name.
- Innovative Gameplay.
- Authentic stadiums.
- Level up system.
- Authentic Cricket equipment.
3. World Cricket Championship Lt
Before the launch of wcc2, World Cricket Championship Lt was the #1 cricket game on android. But this game is still popular among the cricket game lovers.Even it is currently ranking among the #4 Top free games on play store. I have placed it on number 3 position because this game provide the complete cricket game experience with World Cricket Championship, World Premier League and Super fantasy cricket league. This game is providing the eye catching graphics with best in class stadiums and world class commentary. You can also challenge a friend to play the cricket game with him.
Playing modes: –2.5/5
There is only one playing mode in this game. You can’t choose the playing mode your side. It is by default set by the game itself.
Difficulty level: – 3.5/5
I don’t find any difficulty level in this game. You can play this game easily without any hassle.
Advertisements: – 2.5/5
I am not impressed with this advertisement scheme of this game. There is too much ads show in this game. Even between the overs and your screen will get overflowed with ads.
UI and Ux: – 2.5/5
If you love to play high quality game. Then you will not love this game at all. There are not a very high quality graphics. You will find the average graphics with this game. On the other hand UX is good enough for the beginners.
Controls: – 2/5
Controls are easy to use but not as user friendly it can be. While batting in this game; you’ll find the controls very unusual. Because these control are completely different than any other cricket games of android.
- Full 3D graphics.
- Variety of MOCAP animations.
- Simple pick up and play controls.
- Multiple gameplay modes.
- TV Broadcast style cameras.
