Stick Cricket Super Sixes has been a runaway success since the game was launched in December: 34 years worth of gameplay has been notched up (yes, you read that correctly), with 5 million TVs smashed in the process.

Super Sixes – a batting game featuring the sadistic bowling machine, the Bowlomatic 3000 – was featured as Pocket-Lint’s App of the Day, hailed as “smashingly good fun” (Mactalk) and has attracted thousands of five star reviews from hooked gamers worldwide. It’s even the game of choice for Olympic gold medallists.

One thing that was absent from the Super Sixes experience was an easy way to find out how you stack up against the rest of the six-smashing community. Or, if you’re fortunate enough to have any, your friends.

Thankfully we’ve solved this problem with the latest update to Super Sixes, available for free from the App Store today. Game Center now forms a key part of the game, keeping track of where you stand amongst your pals on three key leaderboards: Overall Score, Level Reached and Super Sixty Seconds tally.

For some this may result in merciless humiliation from your mates as you can no longer hide the fact that you’re constantly thwarted by the big stumps level.

But for those in need of an ego boost, look no further than the credits page: the Stick Sports team have included their (not very good) personal best scores for you to compare.

This update (1.1.0) also contains some performance tweaks designed to ensure a smooth Super Sixes experience on your device.

As always – if you encounter any issues, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
