Stick Cricket App For The iPhone With Tips, Hints & Cheats

Updated on June 14, 2014

Stick Cricket Hits The iPhone

The Stick Cricket or Stickcricket app for the iPhone and iPad is one of the most popular free apps on the app store at the moment. This article will give you an overview of the stick cricket app and also some hints and tips on how to play the game. Stick cricket is one of the stick sports game from the online website that runs many of these games. Stick cricket has always been the most popular stick game so it’s no surprise that the designers have brought out an iPhone stick cricket app.

The stick cricket app is just what you would expect it to be. It’s a cricket game played by little stick men. The game play is very simple but the graphics are top notch and the game is so impressive. It is based very closely on the online game and many of the features are the same, this game can be found at The fact that the developers have managed to get such a playable version out on the iPhone and iPad is very impressive.

Stick Cricket

Getting Started


When you start the app up you are taken to the stickcricket main page. From here you can select play or you can update the teams (this is done automatically), read some information on the credits or view your game stats. I like the stats page as it gives you some excellent details of your overall performance in the game. This is a good feature if you are competing with friends.

If you click on play you then have to choose a game type to play. You can choose from two player, all star slog and world domination. Two player is very clever, if you have a friend in the room who also has the game you can play together, one bowls and one bats. All star slog is five overs where you try to get the highest stickcricket score you can. Then world domination is a series of challenges against different teams. You start by playing Canada and if you defeat them you unlock the next level, the final opponents are the mighty Australia.

Even Better On iPad



When you enter actual game play mode you are first of all told who will be bowling to you. Take note of what kind of bowler you are facing, for example is it fast inswing, medium pace, or leg spin? There are several different variations of bowler and each one will do something different with the ball. You tap the screen to continue and then the first ball is bowled to your little stick cricket player. At the right time you must tap on of the button on the bottom left or right of the screen, this selects what shot you have to play. Make sure you watch the line of the ball and the pace.

As you play the game your score will appear at the top right of the screen. Depending upon what form of the game you are playing, in the top left of the screen will be the total you are chasing, your run rate and the scores your two current batsmen have made. You have eleven batters altogether and when one gets out a new one will come in until you run out of batters or complete the overs. You can hit 2 runs, 3, 4 or even six. At the end of each over you are taken to a score sheet where you can track your progress.

Game Modes

Hints & Tips

When it comes to tips and hints for stickcricket it really just takes practice. To hit a 4 or a six you have to time your shot very well. One handy tip is that if you play the online version of stickcricket there is a training mode where it shows you when exactly to hit the ball. This skill can then transfer over to the stick cricket app and be used there.

It’s important to get used to all the different kinds of bowling. The spinners are often the most difficult to manage, leg spin and off spin are both completely different and it can be very tricky to time the shot right. One hint is whenever the ball is heading for the wickets make sure you tap the left button for right hander’s or vice versa for left hander’s. Also watch out for bouncers as these can knock the batsmen’s head off!

There are two version of the stick cricket app for the iPhone. Free stick cricket and then the paid for version of the app. The free version is very good but the game plays are limited which I feel is a bit of a cheat. You can only play the first three world domination games in free and you can’t play the 10 over slog in the free stick cricket app. Like I say I feel like this is a bit of a cheat. If you spend £1.79 you can get the full version where you get all the world domination levels and the full 10 over slog.

Currently there are no cheats for stick cricket. This is still a relatively new app so maybe some one will come up with some in the future, but as of now there are no cheats available for the game.

Overall stick cricket really is a great little app for the iPhone and iPad. It’s so close to the online version and it really is great fun. The graphics and sound effects are top notch and the game play is so simple. It’s also a very challenging game and does take some real practice. If you enjoy cricket games or any other stick sports games then I am sure you will love the stick cricket iPhone app.

      Hey guys if you want to get high scores in this game you have to do this the end of the over right after the last ball go to pause and see scorecard.

      2.then continue and resume game then you will start the over again without losing any runs

      Make sure you do it after the score is shown thnx

      On world domination how do you get more than 1 ball lit up?

      Also what do you have to do to unlock as I've beaten all the teams?

      On 5 start slog you need to get more than 100 runs for second ball to light up ... No idea what the threshold is for all 3!

      When playing the medium pacers, try to hit the ball as soon as possible after the ball pitches, even if it's quite short and wide.

      For the spinners, play on length too - the short ball pitching just outside off stump can be pulled through mid wicket if it's short enough.
