Zapak Digital Entertainment Ltd., a Reliance ADA Group venture, has announced the launch of India’s first full-feature online Multiplayer Cricket Game. This game is supposed to be the first of its kind not only in India but also globally recreating a close to real stimulation of India’s favorite game-Cricket! The multiplayer option provides the advantage of playing the game against your friend no matter where both of you are across the world.
You can start playing immediately by visiting Zapak.com as this game does not require any installation of programmes, so no CD’s, no requirements for memory space on the computer. Just log in to Zapak.com and play this game for free against anyone in the world immediately.
The cricket game is as close to real experience of the game that you could get. Beginning with the toss and weather conditions the game goes on to give you the liberty to try all possible strokes and bowling styles by the book. At the same time it leaves you to try out innovative shots, choose your field settings, face the risk of a no ball, derive the benefit of overthrows and even get run out. The game remains the same only the venue changes to online.
Kapil Dev, one of the best all rounder players that our country has ever seen launched this full feature online multiplayer game with Navjyot Singh Sidhu, one of the best opening batsmen of our country.
Announcing the launch of this game, Rajesh Sawhney, President, Reliance Entertainment, said, “Online Gaming is a nascent concept in India. We are today offering games across various genres to suit the requirements of all age groups. We capitalized on Bollywood with Salman Khan Zone. And now given the fact that cricket is not just a passion but a religion in India, it presented us with a huge opportunity. Today we have launched the worldâ€?s first full-feature online multiplayer cricket game. Cricket is our big ticket offering to the online fraternity with which we intend to make a mark for Indian games even in the International fraternity.”
The Guest of Honor, Kapil Dev, said, “Today the youngsters are no longer content with usual ways of playing; they want to explore more effective and efficient ways to play, to utilize time. We Indians are excited at all forms of cricket, for us cricketers are demi-god, cricket is a religion. This Multiplayer Online Cricket Game from Zapak has all the features that make cricket exciting and we will see this is as big a hit as the original game itself. This game is of international quality and is sure to appeal to the global audience. Now that I have played all forms of cricket from gali cricket to online cricket, I consider myself as a True All Rounder.”
Navjot Singh Sidhu said “Iâ€?ve played the game a few times now and I feel that the game play is brilliant. Itâ€?s almost like playing on the field. I have the option of trying out various batting strokes and unlike on the field the game gives me the option to try my hand at bowling too. It was great to face Kapil Devâ€?s bowling once again it reminded me of those golden years.”
