Editors' review

Arcade Hoops Basketball mimics the arcade quickshot basketball machines you might find at a pizza place or a fair, but with this app it's all about swiping your shots to the basket. Once you start the game, your job is to swipe upwards toward the basket and sink as many shots as you can in 45 seconds. The power of your shot is affected by how much you swipe so it takes a little bit of practice before you'll be hitting shots consistently.

Arcade Hoops Basketball comes with three game modes. The classic 45 second contest mentioned above, along with a 3-point shoot-out (greater distance) and a Progressive mode in which the hoop distance changes gradually as you play. There are also a number of skins you can apply to the game that will make your shooter look like a zombie, give you a space-themed background, and other looks that don't effect the gameplay, but give the game a different feel.

Arcade Hoops Basketball is pretty fun for a while, but once you get used to the game mechanic, can be pretty repetative. If you like those arcade hoop machines, though, this game is a fairly good re-creation, without having to spend countless quarters to shoot some hoops.

    "Arcade Hoops for iPhone Rocks!"

    November 16, 2008   |   By ipodgameplayer

    Version: Arcade Hoops Basketball 1.0

    Pros

    Easy to play, very realistic, one of the best games I have for my iPhone. Addictive as hell, can't stop playing! A steal for $1.99.

    Cons

    Wish it had a global high score board (hey, Skyworks, how about it in the next rev?)

    Summary

    Arcade Hoops is a mobile version of the bar basketball game that everyone loves. Throwing the ball is super easy, just click on it and fling away. You can even have 4 balls going at once, just like the real thing. Unlike a lot of games on the iPhone that feel like the work of an amateur, this game is polished and obviously professionally done. The graphics and sounds are great and the ball physics are incredibly real; download it and watch the ball dance on the rim as it decides whether to go in or not. I love the little touches that make it feel so real; the rim flexes ever so slightly when the ball hits it, the backboard shakes on impact, you can even bank a ball off of the side fencing and get it in. All iPhone games should be this good, let's start weeding out some of the crap that takes up all the space. And Apple, what's the deal here? If any game should be featured it's Arcade Hoops. Every review I've read online talks about how hard it is to find. Arcade Hoops is real winner, great job Skyworks!
