WoW the first fun and addicting game of 2016, easy gameplay, but hard to master a big score, looks great also.

Hopefully some other addictive and great games will follow. Last year's first release day offered (me) not less than two GOTY plus one honorable mention!

While i agree with you on the addictive factor here (i'm a sucker for these timing skilled little games), and also on hard to get a huge score, i'm definitely not fond of the default background, uninspired look of the audience and the ugly black bars holding the basket.

Edit: sorry, this^^ is the unlocked Kumo-Ball, not the default one.

But what counts is the gameplay. Though i think the ball's physics is almost a bit too heavy, i get along pretty well with it. And as soon as more traps and spiked walls get into the gameplay, now it really starts to get interesting.

Def worth a free throw.

Anything by Kumobius is an instant purchase/download for me (I have enjoyed their products on both iOS and Android), so I picked this up the moment it landed on the store.

The default mode is just your normal basketball, hoop, and court, but you get gifts and options so quick that the game doesn't get boring. Popcorn is my favorite of the ones I've unlocked so far.

With regard to the F2P aspect, I don't like how you can receive duplicate gifts, but I understand why they had to do that. No one would ever buy any of the gifts if they could be all be unlocked in 30 minutes. I do like that the shield power-up lasts for a long time, so I'm fine with watching a short commercial to be able to use it.

Ball is life. Or I guess in this case, Fall is life.

I didn't really have any expectations, but love it. The swinging mechanic is something I haven't seen before, real fun game to play when you've got nothing to do for like 10 minutes. It's hard though
