App description: Two minutes left in the game, your team is down big and the ball is in your hands... What do you do?

In PointGuard, you assume the role of point guard as you stage the comebacks of your life! Use an array of scoring moves, including alley-oops, slams, floaters and long range threes as you fight your way through increasingly difficult teams on your quest to the championship! Of course, you know that defense wins championships, so make sure that you bring your defensive game of shot blocking and pickpocket ball steals, or you will be going home soon!

FEATURES
- Immerse yourself in the middle of 3D basketball arenas with cheering (and booing) fans
- 3D graphics and true ball physics
-One Touch Controls (pass, shoot, block, steal and defend all by touching the device screen)
-Unique Graphics (play with normal or "stylized" orange only graphics)
-Fast paced gameplay with arcade effects, camera zooms, and cut scenes

PointGuard is currently the only 5 on 5 basketball experience in the app store! Buy PointGuard and get ready for all the buzzer beaters, slam dunks and fast breaks you can handle!

Hello touchArcade community!

I am an independent developer and I wanted to introduce you all to my iPhone app, PointGuard!

I noticed that mostly all basketball apps in the appstore are simply "arcade style" shoot the basketball apps. I really tried to create something different by creating a team-oriented basketball game with unique controls, presentation and graphics.

In PointGuard, you assume the position of point guard with two minutes left in the game. Playing against time, you must stage the comebacks of a lifetime as you play increasing difficult teams on the road to the championship. Scoring is essential, but defense becomes more important as deficits become larger and opposing teams become faster, better defenders and scorers.

Pointguard features:
  • 3D graphics and true ball physics
  • Arcade effects and cut scenes
  • One touch controls (pass, shoot, steal and block by touching device screen)
  • Play with normal or "orange only" stylized graphics
  • Currently the only five on five basketball experience (that I know of) in the app store!
I will emphasize that PointGuard is my very first app, because I am eager to receive constructive feedback which will allow me to improve this app and other apps created in the future. I have included several promo codes below. I only ask that redeemers let the forum know which promo code you use and that you leave (hopefully encouraging/positive) feedback!
