Batter up! It’s time for a baseball masterclass! Home Run Hitter is a fun and straight-forward baseball batting game where you have to face up to a top-class pitcher, and try to score as many hits and home runs as you can. Execute those crisp hits to perfection – the further the ball travels, the more points you score. However, as always with baseball – it’s three strikes and you’re out, so make sure your timing is just right!
This challenging ball sports activity will really test your prediction skills, as you have to try and guess which direction the pitcher is going to throw the ball. Will it be a curve-ball? A fast-ball? Even a breaking-ball? Your hand eye coordination and timing are also key to a successful ‘at-bat’. If you swing too soon or too late – that’s a strike, and the umpire will yell ‘Sttrrrrrrriiiiike!’ at you! Drive the crowd wild by hitting ball after ball to increase your score multiplier. Of course, everyone wants to see a home run – so can you deliver one for the team? It’s time to swing away, Slugger!
How to Play: The controls are straight-forward – aim using your computer mouse or touchpad, and Left Click to swing the bat. The trick is to time your swing just right so it hits the ball perfectly. Once the pitcher throws the ball, it takes a couple of seconds before it is within striking range. Watch the red aiming circle getting smaller as the ball approaches, and becomes the size of the target area. Left Click at that exact moment to hit the ball sweetly. Hopefully, you hit a huge home run, but even ‘hits’ that don’t go all the way score points. Keep an eye on your high score in the bottom left corner of the game screen.
If you swing too early or too late, you miss the ball and the umpire (off screen) yells “Strike!” In accordance with the rules of baseball – 3 strikes, and you’re out. You can see how many strikes you have remaining indicated by the Bat Icons along the bottom of the playing area. If you keep hitting balls in succession, your ‘Score Multiplier’ keeps rising. This means that the length of your hit (in feet) is multiplied by the number on your Score Multiplier, which gives you extra points for consecutive hits.
