App description: Just your average arcade basketball game with raining bowling balls, streak multipliers, and party balloons where you can win real cash!

Big rims, moving baskets, bowling balls, trick shots.
The Arcade in the name is there for a reason. Like in the arcades, the basket moves forward and back, up and down. It gets larger, smaller, and even loses the backboard at times.

No other basketball game on the iPhone has these game mechanics.
Holding your finger down and aiming with a dotted line is no way to shoot a basketball. With a touch screen the only way to shoot a basketball is to shoot it with your finger. Thats right, shoot it with your finger. The velocity of your finger determines how high and how far the ball goes.

Easy to learn. Its like driving a car.
The first time you press the brake pedal on the car, its a bit sensitive. As you learn to drive, your control of the brake pedal gets to be impeccable. Thats exactly how shooting is in Hoops. Shooting bank shots, swishes, or bouncing it off the ground becomes an extension of your thoughts.

Just play one game and youll be addicted. The shooting mechanics are spot on and will leave you with the sense that you are in control. Like in real life, you go on hot streaks and cold streaks. Its easy to control, hard to perfect.

Head to Head multiplayer matches
Play over Game Center or locally through Bluetooth against your friends or enemies. Send them special attacks like taking away their backboard and mess up their shots!

Different Game Modes
Play single player and score points to unlock moneyballs. Moneyballs help you score even higher with things like a bigger basket, faster ball return, and more balls. Or you can play the 24 timed Challenges and challenge yourself to make only swishes, shoot with beach balls, or make some trick shots with your new skills. For Game Center players, you can compete for the world record and beat your friends. Also, over 40 achievements to earn!

Did we mention Multiplayer?
Multiplayer is by far the funnest aspect of the game. Compete against your opponent by scoring as much as you can. When you make the special Moneyballs, you can cause your opponent to have to turn their device upside down to play.

Its Free!
Ok, so we mentioned Multiplayer twice, but only because it is that good. Let the advertisers pay for this game so you can enjoy some good fun arcade basketball for free.

buttermilktoast's comments:
My friends and I recently got our first game approved! It's called Hoops!, it's a basketball arcade game.

You can play by yourself and see how high you can score by getting into overtime. There are also special moneyballs to help you along the way. There's also a time based challenge mode to see how quickly you can make certain shots. There's also head to head play over game center so you can anyone in the world, or local play via bluetooth. This is a bit different though as you can send attacks to change the way your opponent plays the game

When do you plan to update it for the iPhone 5? I got the game and it's great, but i don't like the black bars on the side.
