After playing IPL Fantasy League on official IPL website and enjoying the game with various Twitter features, it’s time to actually play the game on your mobile. Disney UTV’s Indiagames have officially launched IPL Season 6 game for cricket frenzy’s. Dubbed as ‘IPL Cricket Fever’, the game is a cricket simulator which uses real time physics and swipe-based controls to make the game feel as real as possible. To further enhance the experience, the game has all the official teams from Chennai Super Kings to Royal Challengers Bangalore and also includes every player in the tournament from M S Dhoni to Chris Gayle.
”IPL frenzy has just about started to catch on for season six and the game has already crossed lakhs of downloads in the first 10 days itself. IPL Cricket Fever 2013 – the official IPL season 6 mobile game with added features like the challenge mode and even cheerleaders will provide an even more enhanced cricketing experience to the users”, said Vishal Gondal, managing director – Digital, Disney UTV, in a statement.
To play the game, gamers have to select a friend and create a challenge with other gamers playing the game or accepting a challenge posed to you. The objective of the game is to hit maximum runs in one, three or five overs and set a challenge for an opponent to beat or while responding to an opponent’s challenge. The aim is to win as many challenges as possible to stay on top of the leaderboard and to move to new skill levels.
By winning matches, you win points and move up the leaderboard while also gaining new skills and unlocking in-game rewards. As the game tries to replicate the original action of IPL in the game, it enables gamers to add cheerleaders from the in-game store provided.
The gaming app is relatively light on your memory card and even feels responsive and loads faster. But the user interface of the app is too cluttered with number of small tabs and option happening on same screen. Another thing which I was bugged while playing the game was the bombarding ads. This is going to be a big turn off but gamers can switch off their internet pack while playing the game to avoid them.
The game already features in the ‘top 10’ free games on Google play and claims to have crossed lakhs of downloads.
You can download the game here.
