It's a perfect game despite the monochrome green screen of the PCW, grass, grass and more grass marked with white lines. The simulation allows us to play 40, 55 or 60 games and two games full of possibilities. At first the configuration is established with Australia and England, but the names of the teams and players can be changed.

The game is developed in two modes, simulation and arcade, the first refers to a relaxing game that we can simply sit and watch and in the second much more participation is needed. One or two players can participate, the computer has nine rating levels in a single player game.

The basic game screen shows one screen viewed from the pitch itself and the other from a view with views from the stands. The two teams are chosen from a squad of 20 players, each having different abilities in hitting and hitting the ball. Once the team and the type of game have been selected, you can start playing.

In simulation mode you only have to choose the batter's tactic and what part of the field we should attack by batting. The arcade mode requires that the user at the time of making the shot when hitting two keys are pressed as an alternative to improve the performance of the player and the batting when we run. If the ball is sent to the sides of the screen, another screen will appear automatically showing us where the ball was sent.

All the usual rules of the game are those of the LBW, and all the concepts of the game are saved, such as catches, exhaustion, clean pitches, tired hitters in long periods, a new ball, statements and complements. The graphics are very well animated and the game well thought out and presented. The computer can provide strong opposition and the player's players are a lot of fun. It will delight all cricket fans and many more.
