Allan Bennetto, Founder of Fruitful Technologies and Tappy Cricket said: "Cricket is the world's second most popular sport behind football with an estimated 2.5 billion fans in the world. Many of these fans are located in Asia, where there is an perfect storm of cheap, powerful devices coinciding with new faster networks and data plans. And they love games. With Tappy Cricket, we didn't just want to create another simulation style game. We wanted to gamify the whole social cricket experience so the anyone could play regardless of age. We wanted the Grandparents to be challenging the Grandkids. So we ended up creating a game with a really simple games engine, but bolted on a sophisticated stats engine to record all player details, just like in professional cricket. What you have now is a game that is really simple to play, but difficult to master. But like cricket, the longer you play, the better you get and the more 100s you score and the better your average is."
Tran Cong Than, Chief Technical Architect of Fruitful Technologies said: "We're thrilled to finally get Tappy Cricket out to the public. The game is the product of the many hours of hard-work from our development team here in Vietnam. Tappy Cricket may look simple to play, but a lot of work has gone into getting the stats engine right and syncing up scores from both iOS and Android so that players can seamlessly compete with each other. We're just getting started too. We'll be introducing new worlds and new game modes in the coming months. We hope the players enjoy the game as much as we did making it."
