Sports Titles

I enjoy sports games - especially baseball, basketball and football. Unfortunately, there isn't a wide selection of those sports. Sure, there is Backyard Baseball and the LED Basketball & Football (which I enjoy), but I'm looking for something more.

I would be happy even if they were "mini-games" of the sport. For example, a home run derby or field goal contest or 3-point contest game.

There's several bowling, fishing, golf and racing apps, but not really from the fore-mentioned sports. Anybody else feel my same sentiment?

I am just getting started on the design. I'll let you know more when I have a working prototype. It's going to be a full 3D 3 on 3 game, not just a shooting minigame.

That sounds AWESOME! Any price tag..?

There is a small arcade shooter by SkyNetworks (creaters of ESPN Cameraman!) called Arcade Hoops for 1.99. It SHOULD really be 0.99, but it's quite fun for a casual game.
Oh yea, it's one of those arcade basketball one's. They have a global high scoreboard and a progressive mode where the backboard moves forward and backward.

I would also really like to see more sports games (not Mini-game ones).

Being from the uk im really into football games (soccer), i know that Real Football 2009 is out which looks cool but would also like too see the likes of FIFA 09 and PES 09, these are out on other mobiles so why not iPhone.

Also i saw on gameloft website the makers on Real FOotball 09 .. they have a game called Real Football Manager 09 for other phones i would also really like to this one come to the iphone,

big fan of Football Manager from sports interactive, so this would be good sub for when on the go!..away from pc.

It's going to be a big game so probably $7-10. I estimate it will take 2-3 months to make.
