The app is Cowzat, from Colour Me Interactive in Australia, and it’s based on an existing printed storybook.
“We present the dead-set truth about the origins of Cricket,” explains its App Store listing. “Well that’s our story and we’re milking it for all it’s worth.”
So yes, it’s all about a team of cows who invent cricket in a break from their farmyard duties. What appealed to us most was the illustration style: the cows are beautifully drawn beasts, all teeth and udders with marvellous facial expressions.
Cowzat costs £2.99 on the App Store, and is iPad-only.
