Windows Phone Game Review: Flick Baseball

Flick Baseball for Windows Phone

There's a simple baseball game over at the Windows Phone Marketplace that challenging enough to keep from getting boring, nicely animated and a decent way to pass short bits of time with. Flick Baseball is a pitch and hit baseball where you have five outs to see how many runs you can score.

It may not be a game you'll play for hours on end but Flick Baseball is a decent option to choose when you need help passing short bits of time.

Flick Baseball's main menu is of no frills design with options to play the game, view the help screen, turn on/off the game sounds, and view the developer's information.

The game screen has a pitch button in the lower left corner and the baseball diamond viewed from the profile. Just tap the pitch button and swipe to swing at the pitch. Three strikes and you're out, foul tips are possible, and three outfielders are present to catch your fly balls. Your batter can reach base based on how far they hit the ball. Once on base, runners progress according to the next batters performance.

Home runs are possible and if your hit doesn't get past second base it counts as a foul.

Flick Baseball is a simple baseball game that take a little bit to get used to. It took a few tries to get used to the profile view (accustomed to a behind the plate view). Once you get the timing of the pitch and the speed of your flick down, the only frustrating issue is that the outfielders never miss a catch.

I only ran into one quirk with the game in that home runs didn't always clear the bases. With the high score being local, it wasn't too frustrating and didn't take away from the enjoyment of hitting pitches out of the park.

All in all, Flick Baseball is a fun game for your Windows Phone. Animations are nice, game play challenging enough to prevent the game from being too easy and it's a nice way to pass the time with.

Flick Baseball is a free game that you can snag here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.

Looks mildly entertaining. I just picked up MLB 2012 for my PS Vita, No more baseball video games for a while for me...

Peter McCain says:

Love the app

Miistercoool says:

This game is only entertaining for a little while and I mean very little! I know just my opinion but I thought it would be better >.

Its got some work to do for it to be as fun as the iOS Flick based games from Infinity Pocket and PikPok but it's a nice start.

PJ McPhizzle says:

It is enjoyable, but I would like to see some realism with the bases. Home runs don't clear the bases and 4 singles equals a run, but no more runners on base

irlju#WP says:

I like the look and feel, but the gameplay is far too shallow.

This company also made a Cricket game app. But it is better than the baseball one in my opinion.

Though I am not a fan of baseball game, but this one have changed my mind. A real entertaining, it made me felt the interest of the game. - Thaddeus Heffner
