Editors' review

iBasketball is a good concept and when it works properly, it can be fun; but due to a number of issues the app has in various situations, it is often more frustrating than it is rewarding. From freeze-ups when initially starting the app to pauses and freezes during the actual gameplay, combined with clunky interface buttons and dated graphics, the game is mired in performance issues that will keep most players from ever truly enjoying it.

After you start iBasketball for the first time, you're likely to run into some issues. In numerous tests on multiple devices we had different issues, but there were always issues, mostly involving the language selection menu and a freeze that stalled the app a couple of times before it loaded properly. Even when it did load properly, the buttons would often stick, so it took some time to reach the game proper. After reaching the game menu, things ran smoothly enough, allowing us to move the basketball on the court and select our shot position, but there were subsequent issues with the shooting menu; and the game, despite the pixelated, dated look, was often slow and choppy on the newest available devices.

iBasketball's core mechanics successfully capture the physics of a basketball shoot around, but the game, itself, fails in many other ways, resulting in a clunky, frustrating, and often unresponsive app that works only part of the time. Avoid this app for its technical issues.
