Howzaat – Mushi The Dependable: Features
The game has a variety of batting strokes and bowling movements, as well as dynamic weather, toss and review systems, commentator's explanation, and so on. Among the most intriguing features is the ability to live broadcast directly from the app. Users can stream on Facebook or YouTube while in multiplayer mode.
The most interesting feature of the game, as claimed by developers, is its Legendary mode. Players get to participate in various challenging tasks which are not easy to win. Additional game features will be disclosed after the game is released.
This game's designers have included a lot more variety than previous cricket games. Even though it is named after a single sportsman, the option to bat or bowl will be available. While playing the game from the comfort of your couch, players will experience a high-definition graphic experience. According to the creators, the game will feature "hundreds" of settings and functionalities.
Mushfiqur is excited!
KPC Enterprise president Kazi Sajedur Rahman said the game has released in beta and had a positive reception so far. In just 24 hours, more than 160k subscribers were added. Furthermore, the game was played 5 million times within a week.
"I couldn't believe when I heard for the first time that a game is to be made on my behalf. I was excited from then." Mushfiqur Rahim, former captain of the Banglades National Cricket team said.
Howzaat - Mushi The Dependable is a game that can be played both online and offline. There are three modes available — General, Multiplayer, and Legendary classes. Friendly matches or tournament-style games can be organized among teams of four or eight people.
Nonetheless, this is not the first time a Bangladeshi cricketer has appeared in a cricket-related video game. The SAH75 Cricket Championship's open beta last April featured Shakib Al Hasan. The crowd also responded well to this game. With the ICC Men's T20 World Cup approaching, the game may expect a further, large fan influx.
