Well don't fret anymore BaseBall SuperStars is Here! This game has an amazing interpretation of a mobile version of baseball, with the fun twist of animation. This game is priced at a reasonable amount, and with a free Lite version they're is no reason not to try this game out! Main Menu The Main menu has Some key features such as, start game, Help, options, hidden Characters, mre games and about. This brings the game a rich variety of options once you launch the game fir the first time. You are also greeted with rather annoying theme music, but don;t worry it only lasts in the Main Menu so it won't be too bad. Please Register or Log in to view images Controls The controls of this game are very easy. There is a D-Pad for controlling your player and for pitching, and on the right lower corner, some buttons for swinging, bunting and a sort of OK button. I found them really easy to use and this is definitely a pick-up-and-play game for any baseball fan.

This is a fun game to play. This may seem a little outdated in the world of touch and tilt control, but it is effective and accurate. You swing with a little on-screen button. You choose pitches by tapping the d-pad in four different directions. Then you move a target cursor around the strike zone to aim your pitch. To cut off a runner, you tap the d-pad in the direction of the plate. It's all simple to understand within just a minute or two of playing, as I mentioned earlier. Graphics (Pick From IGN.com) I am not impressed however, with the graphics of this game. The Menu Screens seem a bit off on texture, and the characters seem a little to un realistic.

If you like baseball and enjoy playing it, definitely. It is addicting immediately and a bit challenging as well. For the rice of this app, I would say it is a good deal.
