Only 1 background setting / time of day / court?

I got a little excited when I saw the price, as sometimes higher prices could lead to more content

looks a little empty.
It's just me and my obsessions for content I guess, but I pass

I have two favorite sports titles on the App Store: Baseball Sluggers and PocketSports Football, both excellent games IMO.


FunkyHOOPS, being developed by Solus Games who created PSF, I'm guessing is going to be a very solid basketball game. I will be trying this out later.

Yeah its by the same people as Stragea (which I wasn't too fond of) and Funky Punch. This looks like it has potential, which is why I posted it.

When i saw it i did think it looked like the same graphics as pocket sports football and stragea. Lets hope solus come along and give some insight. they have been around before im sure.

I hope this turns out to be good- looks a little like streetball which I liked a lot but got tired of because it was a little shallow... I love bball games though haha

The video actually does look pretty good...but I'm concerned that this will have the same problem as Streetball, namely that you can pretty much juke the defenders at will and get open dunks/layups anytime you want. I do like that there is some kind of meter for jump shots.
