These will be sixes and fours with a difference — unleashed within the boundaries of two cell phones in a Super Over of a game aptly named ‘Cric Wars’!

Zealcity Studios, an indie game and app development company founded by Aadithyaa Srikkanth that is based out of Chennai and Singapore, has created the game that can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.

Aadithyaa, son of former India captain K. Srikkanth, said, “This is the world’s first multi-player cricket battle played over real time using motion capture technology. It is a free app and you can play, invite and compete with your friends via Facebook.”

“You can be sitting here in Chennai and compete with someone in New York after connecting through Facebook. Both of you will face six deliveries each in your mobiles, and the game will be over in two minutes! Then you can have a series of games.”

He added, “All you need is a decent internet connection. We want to give the gamers the experience and the excitement of a Super Over. There will be six balls, the bowling will be controlled by artificial intelligence and you can have deliveries like the slower ball, yorker and the quick bouncer.”

Aadithyaa elaborated, “The batting will be under your control. You can swipe in the direction you want to strike the ball. There will be special keys for strokes such as the reverse hit and the helicopter shot. There are fielders too and run-outs can happen!”

Srikkanth will provide real time commentary in six languages.

Aaadithya said, “There will be real time leaderboards and prizes. And you can compete in iconic stadiums such as Lord’s, SCG and Eden Gardens.”

The developer wants to make Cric Wars available for Apple devices too. They also plan to bring the second edition of Cricket Career — a game that saw more than four million downloads.
