Pocket Sports Cycling Tour by ... a review

 

A few weeks ago my review copy of Pocket Sports Cycling Tour arrived in the mail. It is one of many in the series of Pocket Sports in which Hamish Sterling tries to capture the thrill of sports as varied as Soccer, Baseball a...

3 riders.....4 countries.....I sat down today to give Pocket Sports Cycling a run through.

 

45 mins later I had an incredibly tense last dash to the finish line, comparable to the any cycling story Lance Armstrong would come up with!

With the recent big batch of new games only on the market for a month, it's time to look forward again to the next lot. The experience of producing the recent six latest games taught a few lessons I will apply for future publishing.

What a year!

 

2014 saw the release of games 5 & 6, Pocket Rugby & Pocket Basketball bringing a mix of mechanics from the previous games. We wanted to improve the opponent inclusion in the games and these two games saw some changes.

How can the mighty Pocket Cricket get any better I hear you ask? Simple......build a brother. A new game that provides a longer battle. A gripping 2 innings match that sees difficult appeals and decisions face tougher batsmen and cunning fieldsmen.

I've always wanted to make a baseball game. After Pocket Cricket was designed, crossing over the mechanics of hitting choice (conservative/aggressive) seemed like an obvious transition.

 

Not being a diehard baseball fan though, I needed more time and feedback from cousi...

Each new game I design tends to start the same way, but finishes in ways I hadn't considered when beginning.

 

Pocket Tennis is nice, simple and captures a solid tennis theme. Two players, back and forth. The dice will tell you much of what's happening but I've inclu...
