Galaxy Basketball - Coming Soon to iOS!!

Hello there,
Hope you're having a nice day!

Today I'd like to show you my ongoing project that will soon be available to purchase in the AppStore, it's called Galaxy Basketball.

It's essentially a game where you have to put the balls into the black hole, racking up as many points as you can. You're awarded 100 points for getting it in the black hole, subtract 10 from your score if you hit the obstacles, -100 if you hit the crashing spaceships, and some cool other hazards and bonuses are included too.

You can change from 4 different balls and also change the background. All of this can be seen in the video.

The app will cost $0.99 and should be out in the upcoming month since I have yet to purchase that Apple Developer License.

What do you think of this game? Do you like it? Would you buy it? Leave your thoughts in the comments please!

PS. What screen recorders do you guys use? Mine kind of stinks...

I like the music, fits the style of game and the art style perfectly I think

The concept looks pretty neat, similar to Angry Birds Space with the gravity mechanic. Here are a few ideas

How about different levels of difficulty?

Different colored balls, each with, say, a unique ability like goes super fast or temporarily slows time to allow the player to think through the obstacles.

How about gamecenter achievements and leaderberboard.

Give us different modes, how about an endless and a times one to make as many points possible, then one where we only have 5 balls to rack up as many points as possible.

Give us powerups to hit, also score detractors and multipliers.

Hope some of this helps looking like a great start!

The game reminds me of the arcade basketball game . How about in-game gold to buy stuff like different basketballs, change the background around the area where you throw the ball, and power ups? That's all I can think of.
