I have to try this... Pik Pok always makes some amazing games. Though I wasn't too fond of the Maze runner. This looks cool, I would love if you made a game for all the sports like American Football and hockey, etc.

Just tried the tutorial. Actually seems really fun. The free card draw you get I don't think is very random so I don't recommend restarting your game.

Some bugs, I noticed that online, the game loads in about 5 seconds. Offline, the game takes about 30-40 seconds. I hope they fix this or I'll think they're "penalizing" for not using your data plan to play..

Oh TIMERS. Probably the worst part of this game. But I guess everyone expected that.

Sigh... at this point, sorry but I can't recommend this game. Maybe some people will enjoy it but the timers are pretty bad here.

First thing, the game is simple and fun. I love the collecting and leveling bball stars + the bonus mini games inbetween matches. The graphics are beautiful as expected from a game of Pik Pok.

That said, you start with 15 energy, an early level round costs 5 energy. So you can play 3 levels (roughly 2-3 minutes a piece). It gets worse, want to enter the tournament? My energy costs are ranging from 6-9 there. Awesome. If you look at the campaign, the game isn't even that long. But it WILL BE LONG because of those timers, you won't get that far.

It's a fun game. But you're barely going to get to play it. I could play Angry Birds Transformers longer and I deleted that in 30 minutes. I can see why they did this as it heavily makes you lean toward putting in money to keep playing. But that just isn't my thing. Sorry Pik Pok. 5/10 for me. That's a bit generous considering I'm probably not going to be playing it again. If you make a paid version I'll come back but I doubt that will happen.

This looks like a reskin of their football one which was plagued with terrible timers and premium currency shennigans.
