Play OverviewPlay Overview

Cricket Through the Ages (2019) is a competitive sports game themed around cricket but with little to do with the rules of that game. Players face off and aim for each other as much as wickets. Controls work by holding or tapping the screen to spin limbs and release the ball (or whatever you are holding). It’s all very silly, in a quintessentially English way.

Our examiner, Jo Robertson, first checked Cricket Through The Ages 4 years ago. It was re-examined by Andy Robertson and updated 3 months ago.
